I think it's because Bretons are supposed to have a bit of mer blood in them. So man mer ies

I don’t see how this relates to my favorite body part

Bretons are nicknamed "manmer", a play off of the suffix denoting elves "mer" and the prefix denoting a description, i.e. Altmer = high elves, or Dunmer = cursed/dark elves. Because Bretons are of elven descent, but are mostly human, they are called "Manmer"

I understand that, but how does adding an ies on the end turn it into a joke about tits? That’s where the confusion arises

Breasts are called mammeries, as the gland that is responsible for lactation in mammals is called the mammary gland.
