PHOTOS: Meet the woman with widest hips in the world
39-year-old Mikel Ruffinelli, who lives in Los Angeles has the widest hips in the world.
Mikel, who weighs 420-pounds and is the mother of four children claims that she is comfortable with her 8ft (in circumference) hips and also says that men don't like skinny girls.
At just five-foot-four, 39-year-old Mikel Ruffinelli, who lives in Los Angeles, is substantially wider than she is tall, but says she loves her shape and sees no reason to diet because she doesn’t have health problems, the Daily mail reported.
Interestingly, Mikel drives a truck as she can’t fit into a car. When at home, she has to sit in steel-supported chairs and sleeps on a 7ft-wide bed.
Mikel's husband, Reggie Brooks, is a 40-year-old computer technician and finds his wife's unusual shape sexy.
Apparently, Mikel has inherited her big hips from her mother.
Mikel is now modelling for a Big Beautiful Women website and earns up to 1000 dollars per shoot.
