Bangers Cockney Rhyming Slang


Bangers is cockney rhyming slang for women’s breasts.


Bangers in Brit slang can mean sausages or boobs. Go figure.

In 2013 Gok Wan got in serious trouble for making an ad in Australia where he referred to women’s breasts as “bangers”. This offended the professionally-offended classes in Oz. One lady said: “I have never heard another woman, or man for that matter, refer to women’s breasts as bangers, bangers are a slang term for a sausage; I do not want my breasts referred to as meat.”
