Rita Ora used to squeeze into ill-fitting garments to make herself appear smaller.
The 22-year-old singer is known for her confident and fashion forward ensembles.
She used to be shy about showing off her figure when she was growing up.
"There was a point in school when I was, like, 13, that I didn't feel comfortable at all," Rita told Teen Vogue.
"I matured more quickly than the other girls; I had bigger breasts and a bigger bum - and I hated it. I would get extra-tight leotards for my dance classes [to flatten me] because I was really ashamed of my body. At one point, I just woke up, like, 'I love my boobs, I love my skin, I love myself. And I'm going to get a leotard that actually fits because I can't breathe!'"
She says stars like Beyoncé Knowles helped her embrace her curves, and as a result she's now one of the most talked about stars in the fashion world.
She described her style as being influenced by hip-hop culture with a mix of Hollywood glamour.
"I'm a tomboy but also a girl's girl," she continued.
"They're Stella," Rita casually stated before Instagramming the shoes to her followers.
