It's impossible to ignore it! Big boobs (especially breast implants) have taken over the celebrity industry, reality TV shows, even invaded social media timelines, and one girl is tired of the push-up nation.
While some are quietly being smothered by bigger breasts, 23-year-old award-winning British blogger Chidera Eggerue (The Slumflower) is taking a stand and making it clear that Saggy Boobs Matter.
At a young age, Chidera began falling under the pressures of wanting society's ideas of a perfection, and set her goals to get a boob job by the time she was 18.
"A lack of representation of saggy-looking boobs when I used to go bra shopping in M&S; [as a young teenager] made me realise that something is wrong with the way the world views women's bodies," Chidera shared with BuzzFeed News.
Thankfully, she never went through with it!
Instead she decided enough was enough, and began using her social media platform of over 52k Instagram followers to go bra-less and encourage others to embrace their natural body, most importantly, their breasts, using the hashtag: #SaggyBoobsMatter.
"Through creating #SaggyBoobsMatter, I have been able to help women articulate their own body image hang ups – especially slim women who don't really know where they stand in the body positivity movement. Saggy boobs are underrepresented. Being underrepresented makes you feel alien to society. This fosters insecurities in people who don't have the mental strength to see value in themselves beyond other people's standards."
And it's going viral! Women are responding with their support of the movement by releasing their ta-tas from their caged bras and causing serious conversation about body image:
And of course there were trolls, which Chidera responds, “You were made with intention and your body is not a mistake. By force, we will all have to learn that the only way to normalise something is to see it repeatedly. So if you have an issue with saggy boobs, you have to ask yourself why a person’s body offends you.”
She's only speaking the truth, and we are here for the movement.
And she leaves us all with this simple fact:
“For the women who look like me: Your saggy boobs matter. And from now until you die, what’s going to matter, ultimately, is your character. Sometimes people are scared of what they haven’t been taught to accept. We still have to exist loudly, though.”
