We at Olyinka Lingerie are living for the #saggyboobsmatter movement. Chidera Eggerue, Award-winning Blogger & Author of 'What A Time To Be Alone' disliked her sagging boobs from a very young age and desired firmer more perkier boobs as most are portrayed in the media and magazines and as a result Chidera decided in her mind to correct them with plastic surgery.
This is a typical situation of how most women feel about their bodies because of the unrealistic societal standards placed upon us to look a certain way so, we make comparisons, and if our bodies does not match up to those standards we then feel the need to resort to drastic measures.
However rather than resort to plastic surgery, Chidera decided to start an open conversation on Instagram and her blog with other women about this matter because she realised that all women will at some point in their lives face this issue. Furthermore Chidera also realised that she didn’t want to go through her teenage years and her early 20’s wishing that she had loved herself more. She wanted to be "present" in her journey, believe that she deserves to be on this planet and not allow her physical appearance to be the the only thing she importance on in her life - as beautiful as she is. - We see you girl.
So she started the #saggyboobsmatter
Chidera advocates that any decision that a woman make for their bodies is up to them whether they decide to undertake cosmetic surgery or not but she wants women to go through the process of self-acceptance and loving their bodies before making such life changing decisions, furthermore, she also points out that plastic surgery is a short term solution and the long term, more permanent solution is to deal the mind first and how we view ourselves as women.
The movement is also reclaiming every negative idea that has been attached to what it means to have “saggy boobs” so Chidera, as a rite of passage, beautifully and tastefully shows of her boobs to demonstrate to women that “saggy boobs” are just fine and believes that women should enjoy the process of how their bodies develop over time and own it!
The response to the #saggyboobsmatter movement has been overwhelmingly positive and because of Chidera, young teenagers have reportedly made the decision to not go ahead with plastic surgery and breast feeding mothers are more confidence about themselves and feel more beautiful about their bodies as they should do. The testimonies are endless and this movement is changing lives.
Ms Chidera we love what you are doing and we salute you lovely!
