An American woman who has the largest hips in the world says she is quite comfortable with the way she is.
Mikel Ruffinelli, who has been acclaimed as the woman with the world's biggest hips, has now been recognized by chroniclers of the Guinness Book of World Records and will be recognized in the next edition of the book .
The married mother of 4 is over the moon with delight at her assets.
The California, USA, native, says she lives a very active and normal lifestyle and her husband, Reggie Brooks, also says he loves her shape the way she is built.
According to WorldWide Werid News, Ruffinelli was an athletic teenager who had no problems with her weight but she first began to notice that her hips were growing at age 22, just after the birth of her first child.
She said that with every child, her hips grew wider until she was unable to fit through a regular door. Although her waist measures 40 inches, her hips are a staggering 100 inches. It is the biggest in the world.
Far from being embarrassed by the attention she gets from people who ask to take photos with her or make videos of her huge hips, with others taking some shots from her backside when she passed them, she is quite comfortable with the attention she gets.
"When I walk on the street, people pull out their cellphone and take pictures or videos of me.
Some people assume that I had surgery to improve the shape of my body, but it's all natural."
Ruffinelli has no plans to lose weight, but she admitted that her size has occasionally caused problems, like having to buy two tickets when she goes on an airplane, as one seat cannot accommodate her.
She also has to go through doors sideways, and she cannot close the door of her shower because her hips are in the way.
