What kind of body does BBF describe?

Body by Fisher

BBF is a quick way to describe someone with an excellent physique. The person looks so good that they appear to be built like a vehicle designed by Fisher Body, a well-known auto-designer employed by General Motors.

Millennial adults and older (typically men) are the primary users of the acronym. They may text it or post it online to refer to a person with an amazing body. They may also use it sarcastically to describe a person that is clearly out of shape.

Where does BBF come from?

The Fisher Body Company was founded in 1908 by brothers Fred and Charles Fisher. The company began designing car bodies for various automobile manufacturers, including Buick, Cadillac, and Ford. It eventually became a division of General Motors, which popularized the saying "Body by Fisher" to describe their vehicles' attractive appearance and durability. The BBF acronym became shorthand for the phrase as Internet lingo and texting grew in the late-1990s and 2000s.

Alternative origin of BBF

Some people also claim that the "Fisher" part of the acronym refers to Fisher-Price, a toy company specializing in the production of educational toys for babies, toddlers, and children. In this sense, a BBF person is sculpted (naturally or artificially from plastic surgeries) like a plastic doll from the Fisher-Price toy brand. People may also use BBF as part of the longer BBFBBM acronym, which means "body by Fisher, brains by Mattel," to make fun of attractive people that are stupid.
