Women of all shapes and sizes will be stripping to their undies and bras at Port Elliot next week to help shift perceptions about body image.

And more women are being sought to take part.

The women will be part of a photoshoot organised by the She Is Me Movement which was founded by Middleton's Libby Tozer.

The social enterprise was born almost 12 months ago following photo shoots for Libby's book Through Her Eyes.

"From the release of the book it has now morphed into a movement for women wanting to change the world's perceptions about body image," Libby said.

"The women who take part in the photo shoots describe the experience as empowering and life-changing."

Since the first photoshoot more than 150 women have stripped to their black bras and undies to be involved with shots taken throughout the Fleurieu Peninsula.

On Friday, November 29 from 6.30pm it will be Port Elliot's turn to host an event which will be snapping a photograph for the 2021 calendar.

Registration for the photoshoot is via the She Is Me Movement Facebook page and registrants will learn of the exact venue the day of the photoshoot.

Past photoshoots have included women from a variety of age groups from 18 through to in their 80s, plus there have been several breast cancer survivors and those with disabilities among the lineup too.

The 2020 Calendar is now available for purchase on the website. Fifty percent of the proceeds from calendar sales go to Catherine House Adelaide and Treasure Boxes SA.
