My husband thinks I’m hot – Meet the proud owner of the biggest hips in the World (PHOTOS)

At some point, this is just going to turn into a picture post because I truly don’t know what to say about the 5’4″ 420-pound LA resident  Mikel Ruffinelli who, according to online UK mag, Closer, holds the title of having the largest hips in the world at a circumference of 8 ft.

Well, one thing to say for starters is Miss, excuse me, Mrs. Ruffinelli loves her body. The 39-year-old has been married to her husband, Reggie Brooks, 40, a computer technician, for 10 years and the couple are the proud parents of three children. Mikel also has a 19-year-old son from a previous relationship whose birth, she says, sparked the spreading of her hips. She told the mag:

“After having Andrew in 1994, I went from 13st and a size 16 to 17st and a size 20 and couldn’t shift it.”

Three kids later, that size jumped up to 32, accompanied by a 42D bust and a 40-inch waist (and don’t forget 8ft hips).

“I put [the weight gain] down to my pregnancies,” Mikel said. “I don’t see why else the weight would go to my hips, although, I do eat lots.”

“Lots” means 3,000 calories a day, which Mikel points out for someone her size is not a lot. She also says she was an athletic teenager and never had a problem with her weight until she became pregnant at 22. And though big hips run in her family, Mikel says no one’s are quite as big as hers. But that doesn’t bother her.
“I love my shape and I see no reason to diet because I don’t have health problems. I love Mexican food, English breakfasts and chips. My husband finds my shape Hot and we have an amazing time in bed – there’s no position we can’t do! He tells me I’m beautiful every day. Men don’t fancy skinny girls, they like an hourglass figure.

“When I walk down the street I can hear people using cameras and saying: ‘Look at her fat a**.’ Fortunately, I rise above it. I don’t want to get bigger, but I don’t want to lose my curves. I look great. I hope I inspire women to think, ‘She’s happy with her body and I can be too!’”

I’m glad Mikel is happy. I’m more surprised she’s comfy carrying so much hip on such a small frame. But if she and her husband like it, and her doctor doesn’t hate it, then I can love it. Thoughts?

    First off, she shines and her happiness and pretty face make her pretty. Her hips are a medical condition called lipoedema, and it’s caused by an inflammatory fat condition- involving the lymphatics. She could be skinny and still have it. Here are some photos http: // It’s not from what she eats. It’s the way her body metabolizes and disperses her circulation.
