"As much as there's progress, we still have a long way to go when it comes to the way we speak about women's bodies," Eggerue told INSIDER.

Eggerue sees the shaming of saggy boobs as a vicious cycle:

"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."

Obviously, Egguere has dealt with backlash from various individuals online who have body shamed her.

Nigerian music maker Don Jazzy made a hateful meme of her, for which he later apologized for after Egguere came down on him for it.

Eggerue said:

"Overall, I think the movement has been received with a lot of sarcasm and insults from men and a few confused women, which doesn’t surprise me."

She said it hasn't been just men who have condemned the movement.

"In regards to the women who have been horrible, it’s disappointing because they also benefit from this movement."
