A blogger is pioneering the movement to embrace saggy boobs, and we're SO here for it
If you’ve ever felt too self-conscious to go braless or wear a plunging top for fear of drawing attention to your droopy breasts, one style blogger is here to show you how to embrace your boobs, sag and all.
Chidera Eggerue uses her Instagram account to promote body positivity, specifically when it comes to breasts. She posts photos of herself with the hashtag #SAGGYBOOBSMATTER wearing fashion-forward outfits sans bra to demonstrate that loving your body means loving your breasts too, regardless of whether they’re perky or saggy. Eggerue started her campaign after noticing how few ads featured breasts with the normal, totally realistic amount of sag most women develop as they age or after pregnancy and breastfeeding.
The London-based blogger regularly shares photos of herself with empowering captions like “how to style saggy boobs: a tutorial step 1 – wear the damn outfit. step 2 – remember not to care.”

Eggerue’s followers love the message of her #SAGGYBOOBSMATTER social media campaign and constantly thank her for inspiring them to embrace their bodies.
At the same time, body shamers have also chimed in on Eggerue’s photos, complaining that her body is unattractive. Eggerue says these haters remind her of why she continues to post her body-positive pictures. “My biggest goal is to simply normalize nature. Not all natural boobs are saggy. Not all older women have saggy boobs. Boobs are just boobs,” she said.
