Mikel Ruffinelli has earned the title for having the largest hips. The plus-size model gained the title from World Record Academy for her whopping eight feet in circumference on a 5'4" frame.
The mother of four has a hard time walking through doorways and even taking showers. To accommodate her body, her everyday lifestyle isn't like any regular person. Ruffinelli has to drive a truck instead of a smaller car, has steel-reinforced furniture at home, and has to sleep in a seven-foot-wide bed with her husband Reggie Brooks, "My husband finds my shape sexy and we have an amazing time in bed -- there's no position we can't do," she told the Daily Mail. "He tells me I'm beautiful every day. Men don't fancy skinny girls, they like an hourglass figure."
The married couple of 10 years are content with Mikel's wide hips and has no intentions in losing weight or performing corrective surgery because it doesn't cause a health problem, "I like to tell people all the time, 'I have a license to work with heavy equipment,'" said Brooks, to Barcroft TV. "She had a sweet disposition about her that really attracted me to her."
Ruffinelli, did not always weigh 400 pounds. Before her first pregnancy at 22-year-old, she weighed only 140 pounds, "I put it down to my pregnancies," she said. "I don't see why else the weight would go to my hips, although, I do eat lots."
In order to maintain her figure, she takes in 3,000 calories a day.
