falsies pl. n. Pads or padding worn inside, or as part of, a brassiere to exaggerate the dimensions of the breasts.
Gcnder-specific ornamentation largely obsoleted by silicone technology and, sad to say, surgical risk.  Seems like decades since I have heard the word, which was invariably spoken with a juvenile smirk.

The term could just as well have been applied to shoulder pads inside a man's jacket.  As a tall man with narrow shoulders, I would not have liked that.
