(PHOTOS) I will never have cosmetic surgery, I’m proud of my saggy boobs – Nigerian lady

A 23-year-old Nigerian blogger based in UK, Chidera Eggerue, who is quite popular for her campaign encouraging women to embrace their natural ‘saggy’ breasts has revealed that her campaign has prompted some ladies to change their minds about cosmetic surgery.

Chidera appeared on This Morning to discuss her efforts to challenge society’s ‘obsession’ with what perfect breasts should look like, which led her to create the hashtag #SaggyBoobsMatter hashtag.

The pretty social influencer, revealed how, since launching her body positive movement, she’s received messages from women who decided to cancel consultations with plastic surgeons as a result.

She told presenters Ruth Langsford and Eamonn Holmes on the ITV daytime show.

I’ve had an overwhelmingly warm, amazing response.

Specifically from very young teenagers who have told me that when they had come across the hashtag it had stopped them attending a consultation with a plastic surgeon, which was amazing to hear. What’s been even more heart-filling was receiving messages from breastfeeding mothers, [who said] that this hashtag has allowed them to feel more beautiful during the process of breastfeeding their child.

Despite considering surgery, Chidera says she now accepts her body and hopes others will relate to her images on social media.

She said:

As a teenage girl it was way too young for me [to be] thinking that there was something wrong with me. When I was 18 I considered surgery too. I used to say to my mum all the time that when I was 18 that I was going to get a job, save money and get my boobs done. As much as I believe that women deserve complete autonomy over their bodies and if they want to get a breast augmentation that is completely up to them, I do feel, however, that it is a shortcut to accpting yourself.

I am reclaiming ownership of every single negative connotation. It’s just an adjective.
