So why is a woman in her underwear to talk about the difficulty of being judged on her appearance? The makers of this video are interested in exploring how style really comes from within. And I think it's an act of bravery and vulnerability to bare and share her body in the process of discussing how much shame and doubt she's suffered in relationship to her physical self. What do you think? How do we build a world more comfortable with bodies — by showing more or showing less?


Meredith Graves' interview is just one in a series of StyleLikeU's "What's Underneath" videos that explore the substance at the core of an array of stylish people. Wanna check out her band? You can find Perfect Pussy on Facebook and Bandcamp.
