Giant Boobs Bounce into London Skyline for #FreeTheFeed Campaign


Elvie launched the movement on Mother’s Day to break down taboos around breastfeeding in public

Giant Boobs Bounce into London Skyline for #FreeTheFeed Campaign
In the early hours of Mother’s Day, five giant inflatable breasts came into view across London’s skyline as part of a statement making campaign to fight the stigma around breastfeeding and pumping in public.

The five boobs vary in size, with the smallest standing at 3m and the largest at 6m tall. They are designed to represent a diverse range of women and each one has been positioned at a key location around the city, which are in in support of the social movement around breastfeeding. These including Grind Shoreditch, in the heart of Old Street, Village Underground alongside their iconic tube carriages, Neutral on Columbia Road, Ely’s Yard and Huntington Estate in east London. 

The UK has one of the lowest rates of breastfeeding in Europe. Almost half (45%) of UK mothers say that everyday life situations, such as office meetings, prevent them from breastfeeding or pumping due to common perceptions of nudity in public. #FreeTheFeed aims to empower women to feel safe and comfortable breastfeeding or pumping anytime, anywhere and encourage the British public to support them. 

The boobs were blooming on both Sunday and Monday.

Tania Boler, CEO of Elvie said, “The #FreetheFeed campaign is an invitation to everyone to stand with all those women that have felt shamed or confined when breastfeeding or pumping. We know the giant boobs will raise a few eyebrows, but we want to make sure no one overlooks the way that this stigma has been used to repress women.”
