Origin of buxom

From Middle English buxum, buhsum (“bendsome, flexible, pliant, obedient”), from Old English *būhsum (“bendsome, pliant”), a derivative of Old English būgan (“to bend, bow”), equivalent to bow +‎ -some. Cognate with Dutch buigzaam (“flexible, pliant”), German biegsam (“flexible, pliant”).
