#iamformyself part II

#iamformyself

Underwear is your first layer, your second skin, your very own secret suit of armor. We believe everyone should feel good in their skin. Starting with good underwear.

#iamformyself is a project centered around the things we do for ourselves, to be our best selves - and the outward confidence that radiates as a result. Part I featured the stories of 12 incredible athletes. With Part II, we wanted to explore the role that the first layer plays in one’s external sense of self, through the lens of personal style. Here we present the Style Series, featuring 11 amazing women: what they do, what style means to them and why it’s integral to their own sense of self.

“[What makes me feel strong and confident] changes all of the time. Sometimes it’s a very high heel when I’m towering over everyone. Other times I prefer to not ‘stand’ out so much — flat shoe, statement lip.”
