Currently holding the world record for the biggest hips in the world is Mikel Ruffinelli, 42, whose hips measure around eight foot in circumference.
The mom-of-four, from Los Angeles, loves her womanly shape as does her husband Reggie.
Ruffinelli says: “I’m extreme, I have an extreme physique. I love my curves, I love my hips and I love my assets.”
But with the visual perks come the physical drawbacks and Mikel is forced to side-shuffle around her house to avoid getting stuck in corridors and even struggles to fit in the shower.
She is forced to drive a wide truck which she accesses using a step ladder as she doesn’t fit into a standard size car.
