What's French for "boobies?"

Phoenix:
Well it all depends. “Boobies” (in French, bêtises) is the plural of “booby” and it can mean an ignorant or foolish person . It can also mean in English, a woman's breast whereby boob (plural boobs) or booby (plural boobies). Now, the direct translation of this term’s meaning in regards to a woman breast in French, that I do not know. May be it’s the same slang used in French.
There is also a third meaning to this term, but I’m assuming you are interested in the translation of “boobies” for the second meaning above - a woman’s breast : )
