Hello and thank you for using JustAnswer. The Mere-Exposure Effect is not the only issue here as there is also a cultural issue in which she must accept your nudist culture as well. If she is okay with your cultural right to be nude than the Mere Exposure Effect will play a part here and she will start to normalize you being nude and be okay with it. She will start to be more comfortable and accepting of your nudity, but it may take some time as it depends on her level of acceptance/resistance and how much she is exposed to you as well.
