Mikel Ruffinelli's hips and bottom measure a staggering 8ft around.
Yet despite being 5' 4" and weighing 420lbs, Mikel, 39, who features in TLC’s documentary World’s Biggest Hips, insists that she sees no reason to slim down or shape up .She says he husband loves her that way and men prefer her figure to slim ladies.
She regularly faces negative attention as well, noting that she often sees others whisper, point, and laugh when they see her. People even take photos and record video of her on their phones.But, she insists, not all of the reactions are critical. Rather, men she encounters seem to prefer her record-breaking size.
Her husband, Reggie, agrees. He adds with a wink:
'I tell people all the time: I have a license to work with heavy equipment.'
