look up any word, like the eiffel tower:
the muffin effect is used to describe the massive overhang of fat when ones jeans or pants stc are way to tight.

this look resembles the way a muffin explodes over the edge of its little paper holder.
oh my god,look at the muffin effect on that bitch! her pants look like they belong to a 12 year old with anorexia!

when a person has become so fat their pants can no longer hold in their fat, hence making them look like a muffin
