Mikel Ruffinelli of Los Angeles thinks that she may have the 'widest hips' in the world.  And she might be right.  She measures 8 feet around the hips making her wider than she is tall. She's 5 feet 4 inches and around 420 pounds. And she says she has no plans on dieting soon.

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.’

Ruffinelli says there are some disadvantages to being as wide as she is, like having to walk sideways down the hall at her house and through doors but says 'that's no problem.'
Oh, and if you were curious, Ruffinelli is married and her husband Reggie Brooks says,
I love her and the way she looks and I wouldn't change a thing.
the past, I was self-conscious about my hips and tried milkshake diets, but they didn’t work. As I got older, I learned to love my body and now I’m not afraid to show it off.'

And Ruffinelli is turning her biggest asset into cash too.

Over the past five years as her confidence has grown she has taken to modelling for a Big Beautiful Women website and earns up to $1000 per shoot.
