Bootylicious – Woman Sets Record with her 8-foot Wide Hips
39-year-old Mikel Ruffinelli has officially set the world record for her fantastical booty. Yup the 420-pound mother of four who measures a staggering eight-foot in circumference, at just five-foot-four, set the new world record for the largest hips.
Ruffinelli’s 100-inch wide hips makes everyday tasks difficult. According to the World Record Academy, the plus-size model must drive a truck and use a reinforced chair at home to accommodate her frame. She also struggles with fitting through door entrances and sleeps in a 7-foot-wide bed.
”I love my shape and I see no reason to diet because I don’t have health problems,’ explains Mikel, has a proportionally small 40-inch waist. ‘Men don’t fancy skinny girls, they like an hourglass figure.”
It hasn’t always been this way, as a teenager she was quite athletic and weighed 140-pounds although she did have big hips – a trait she says that runs in her family.
