It's like one morning I woke up, rolled on my back and my boobs just didn't follow with the rest of my body. I'm not kidding, when I lie down, 60 percent of my breasts fall into my armpit. It's really cute.
Droopiness can be caused by age, dieting, hormonal changes, and gravity. But some strategies can fight it. They also get softer and less dense after menopause, as estrogen production in the ovaries is reduced.
Chidera Eggerue has learned to love her body — saggy boobs and all — and now she wants to help others to do the same. The year-old award-winning British blogger, better known as the Slumflower, is the driving force behind Saggy Boobs Matter, an online movement that challenges unrealistic expectations of what breasts should look like. Pretty soon she had developed a complex and started to resent her boobs.
Saggy breasts are part of a change in breast appearance that most women experience, especially as they get older. This tends to be a completely natural cosmetic change. Still, some women may not want saggy breasts. The medical term for saggy breasts is breast ptosis.
ICYDK sagging boobs are totally natural and normal, so embrace them! You can be body-positive AF and still feel self-conscious about certain body parts or aspects of your body-boobs being a common and relatable theme. But one style blogger from London is here to tell you to embrace your boobs, sag and all.

When Chidera Eggerue hit post on an Instagram photo of herself wearing a "really cute" yellow minidress at a party, she didn't realise she had just started a global movement.

In her caption, she wrote about how women's bodies are viewed and she signed off with something she'd come up with on the spot.
