Khloe Kardashian "didn't think" she was ever fat.

The 25-year-old socialite - who recently lost 30lbs - admits that, despite criticism of her shape, she has never been concerned about her figure because she was always taught to appreciate the assets she had.

She said: "I'd always be in tight dresses. In my head I did not think I was ever fat. Other people did, but I didn't think I was - ever! Because of my family base, I always accepted my natural shape or what I thought it was. I appreciate it now and I want to help other people."

The brunette star's elder sister, Kim Kardashian, credits their older relatives for teaching them to be body confident.

She explained to "Our parents raised us to be comfortable in our own skin. Now I think we like to wear tight things, we love feeling good, taking care of ourselves, wearing what we want.

"I looked at my aunt and cousins and saw these Armenian women with big butts and boobs, and I didn't really realise how attractive it actually was then. Your perspective grows."
