Khloe Kardashian has strong words when it comes to being called "plus size."
The reality TV star made an appearance at Fortune's Most Powerful Women Next Gen Summit on Tuesday and spoke freely about her feelings on the descriptor, and what led her to launch her own denim line, Perez Hilton reports.
"I used to be someone that they labeled as plus-size," she said. "F*ck that. I don't want to be called that. I'm a woman with curves, and what I would say was average size at the time. I was very proud of who I was. I felt so shamed at the time to go into boutiques and denim shopping. It was something that was super hard for me."
Khloe also opened up about how difficult it was to have a different body type from her sisters, saying, "It would always make me feel super embarrassed to go shopping with my sisters, who are petite… I always kind of remember the chubby girl in me, and I'm fighting for my old chubby self."
"It wasn't about having a new denim line," she continued. "[Creating this collection] was about doing something that empowers other women and something that is really going to break down barriers."
It sounds like Khloe's experiences definitely played a major role into her decision to offer a wide range of sizes in her Good American jeans. You can check out more of Khloe's interview below.
