Video: Woman Undresses in London to Promote Body Love

1 Woman Publicly Stripped Down to Her Bra and Undies With This Important Message

Jae West felt anything but courageous when she slipped off her dress, placed a blindfold over her eyes, and held up this sign on the streets of Piccadilly Circus in London.

With markers in hand, she waited for someone to respond and said, "As the minutes passed, it felt like hours." Suddenly she felt someone pull a pen from her left hand and press it against her skin in a heart shape. She just burst into tears as she experienced "one of the most overwhelming feelings of relief, gratitude, and love."

Heart after heart was drawn on her skin, filling her with an immense sense of warmth, but the most inspiring moment was when she heard a father explain to his children what she was doing. "He was acknowledging the fact that everyone should love themselves exactly as they are and appreciate the bodies that they are given."

With eating disorders and body-image issues becoming all too common, Jae took a stand for every person who's ever been made to feel ashamed about how they look, and believes this public act of self-acceptance will help raise the awareness needed to bring about a change.
