It has been a while since we last checked in on some of the more unique world record holders, from the world’s fattest woman to the other world’s fattest woman, as well as all of their lovers that have come and gone in between. Unfortunately, our spotlight is only big enough for one of these women at a time, and this week’s star is 39-year old Mikel Ruffinelli, who unlike those other rotund record holders, has managed to have her cake and eat it, too, in that she has a world record and her health isn’t in horrific danger. Well, according to her at least.
Ruffinelli currently holds the record for the world’s largest hips, as her body’s circumference measures an incredible eight feet, and you can leave your judgments at the salad bar, because she is wide with pride.
‘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.’ (Via the Daily Mail)
Just for perspective, this is what an hourglass looks like. But again, Ruffinelli is proud of what she has accomplished, despite the remarkable limitations that she’s chosen to live with.
