Definition from Wiktionary, the free dictionary

I was trying to find some definition that shows that pneumatic means "large-breasted" or something similar. It seems to be used that way all over the web, but I have yet to find a definition that includes this meaning.

It's from Aldous Huxley "Brave New World", and it means more than that - I'll see what I can do. SemperBlotto 08:57, 8 January 2006 (UTC)
Was Huxley (as I suspect) the first person to use the word this way? Since it's a "car" word (pneumatic tyres) and Brave New World bases its satire on applying Henry Ford's automotive efficiency to humanity, I imagine so. Equinox 02:33, 4 September 2018 (UTC)
