This Video Illustrates How We Struggle With Body Image


Even with the momentum of the body-positivity movement, there’s still enormous societal pressure to be thin. And it can be a challenging topic to talk about, which is why we love this captivating video from artist Jody Steel, which depicts what it’s like to feel uncomfortable in your own skin.

Steel paints an intricate coil on her stomach to represent the way we constrict ourselves to get that elusive perfect body. The strong visual can apply to anybody—and any body image struggle—which makes it all the more powerful.
