Jae West took to Piccadilly Circus for the experiment to highlight body image and self-acceptance.

She explained that she had battled with an eating disorder through school and her early 20’s.

She put on a blindfold and beside her, placed a sign which read: “I’m standing for anyone who has struggled with an eating disorder or self-esteem issue like me."

“To support self-acceptance draw a love heart on my body.”

She later wrote: “As my clothes fell to the ground and I placed the blindfold over my eyes, I could feel a shift of attention and confusion stirring in the air.

“My heart was racing while all the worst case scenarios were going through my head. I was scared that no one was going to draw a love heart on my body and I was going to be left out there in the open in my underwear on show to be ridiculed."

The public responded quite differently though. Take a look.
