Are you ashamed of your big feet?

Kathie Lee Gifford, discussing the shoe issue.

Seems a lot of women are.

A new survey reveals that while demand for larger shoes is on the rise, women don't like to admit their real size. British department store Debenhams, which has revealed an uptick in larger-size sales, conducted the poll.

Reports Reuters Life!: 

The study questioned 1,000 women with size eight (U.S. 10.5) or nine feet about their shoe buying, with 82 percent admitting they are ashamed of their shoe size. 

It was asking the sales clerk for their size that made them most uncomfortable (plus, 36% just plain hated taking their shoes off in public).
