Where does CBH come from?

Fandom / Cartoon Network

One of the first uses of CBH online came on Twitter in 2008, referring to that most delicious of breakfast dishes, corned beef hash.

The “hips” CBH comes from an old folk belief that having wider hips makes it easier to give birth. There is no medical evidence to suggest this is true, but the myth persists.

As a result, women with wide or large hips are often described as having child-bearing hips or in internet-speak, CBH. It’s not exactly clear when this acronym came into use, but the first definition entered on Urban Dictionary was in 2005.
