Mom Bares Her Soul For 'What's Underneath Project' About Pregnancy, Body Image, And Loss

For the past five months, video website StyleLikeU has been interviewing women while they slowly remove their clothes for its "What's Underneath Project." The project is meant to show that style isn't about the clothing you wear -- it's about your comfort in your skin, in what's underneath.

During her video interview, mom and personal stylist Karyn Starr opens up about her experiences with depression and body image -- from the constant catcalling she endured to her eventual breast reduction surgery. Nine-months-pregnant at the time of the interview, Starr then shares a powerful story about her experience with miscarriage.

"I lost two babies last year, so I feel very lucky that this one has cooked for so long," she says. "I had a pretty late miscarriage at 17 weeks." Starr's story is incredibly emotional, as she describes what it was like to miscarry, her husband and son's comforting support, and her trip to the hospital for a D&C.

The mom to 4-year-old Louis and now 1-month-old Arthur also shares a time she feels vulnerable as a parent. "When my son is upset and my consoling him isn’t making him feel better, I get insecure as a parent. But maybe he just needs to have that hard time and I just need to be there for him."
