Reality TV star Khloe Kardashian, who has her own denim line, says she used to avoid wearing denim for years after constantly being snubbed by boutiques over her size.
Khloe, whose denim line is called Good American, says jeans made her felt insecure earlier as she often struggled to find any that would fit her figure when she used to go on shopping with her sisters Kim and Kourtney, reports dailymail.co.uk.
"When I used to shop at high-end boutiques for jeans with my sisters, they would ask for waist size 28 or 26," Khloe told Grazia magazine.
"I would ask for a 31 and the sales assistants would look at me, make this hissing sound and reply, ‘We don't carry that size here'.
"It made me feel so embarrassed and ashamed that for a long time in my life I didn't wear denim… It does scar. I've held on to those words for so long," she added.
