    It seems like a joke.

    I wouldn't call it an "idiom". It most likely is a admonition to a woman to calm down. As phrased, it is rude.

    not a teacher

    I've not seen it before but it seems to be a variation on phrases like "chill out" and "cool your jets".
    I agree with Mike, it's rude.

    Re: Chill your tits

    A high proportion of things found in the Urban Dictionary are at least slightly rude or offensive and care should be taken when using those phrases. In addition, the third word of your phrase is considered a swear word (in BrE) at least and should be asterisked - "t*ts". We would have known what the full word was.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    Re: Chill your tits

    And the asterisk does exactly what? I find that method to be less than effective.

    Re: Chill your tits

    Asterisks are useful for those of us who don't like typing or reading offensive words in full.

    Thanks in advance. :) Please don't use a smiley in place of a punctuation mark. If you want to insert an emoticon, use the icon. In any case, there's no need to thank us in advance. Just click the 'Thank' button when you get a useful reply.
    I'm still waiting to hear in what context the OP heard or read this expression. It couldn't have been in the Urban Dictionary, or he/she wouldn't have needed to ask us what it meant.

    Re: Chill your tits

    It's standard in BrE, certainly when minors might be reading content. It works for all the various swear words - replace one vowel with an asterisk. Most adults will realise that the asterisk is a clue to it being a swear word and it's then easy to work out which word it is. It might not be a perfect method but I'm sure none of wants to see swearing on a site used by under-18s.

    Re: Chill your tits

    But almost everybody knows the word, so what is the point?
