Kylie Minogue had panic attacks about her revealing stage outfits.
The singer praised her stylist William Baker - who has collaborated with her on stage performances and music videos over the years - but admits she has often found some of her outfits to be too racy.
Speaking of her long-time stylist to MTV, she said: "You need someone that's going to challenge you.
"I've felt way too exposed or trussed up in the past, half the outfits I can't breathe in and some of them I have to be cut out of. I end up having a panic attack and want to get the damn thing off."
The 'Can't Get You Out of My Head' hitmaker found one outfit to be particularly racy - her Julien Macdonald dress at the MTV Europe Music Awards in 2000 - and says she had to be forced to wear it.
She said: "I had William and a choreographer, two gays, in the dressing room with me. They rugby tackled me out the door shouting, 'You have to wear that!' They were right, it looked fantastic - but what it feels like to be in something, and how someone sees you wearing it, are two very different things."
The 44-year-old star also credited William for picking her now iconic gold hot-pants seen in her 'Spinning Around' music video which she had owned for a while after a friend bought them for her at a market for 50 pence.
She added: "They loitered in the back of the wardrobe until William was having a snoop around for the 'Spinning Around' video. He pulled out these tiny gleaming things and said, 'What about these?' I like their very humble beginnings and that they went on to be one of the most iconic things I've ever worn."
