Four women have been crowned winners of the world’s widest hips with a total circumference of a 27ft for the curves.
The four women all claimed that they were very comfortable with their plus sized hips despite some difficulties carrying them about sometimes.
42-year-old voluptuous mother of four, Mikel Ruffinelli, who currently holds the world record for the biggest hips, measures in at a well-rounded eight foot.
She is forced to drive a wide truck which she accesses using a step ladder as she doesn’t fit into a standard size car.
56-year-old grandmother, Denise Souder, also known as ‘Sweet Cheeks’ is a Las Vegas stripper whose record-breaking hips measure just over 6ft (74 inches), twice the size of the average woman.
According to Mirror UK, Sassy Souder sells virtually nude clips of her hips online and even ropes her ‘weight gainer’ daughter Rachel, 23, in for the saucy shows.
She said, “God gave it to me, why not love it and use it?
“I do like to get up and walk from my seat to the bathroom and just kind of take a glance at who’s looking.”
Souder’s partner, Steve is a self-confessed ‘chubby chaser’ who admits that he would fall out of love if his lover’s hips becomes any less.
The pair met when Steve posted an ad in the local paper looking for a woman over 21 stone and the pair went on to marry.
But twelve years ago Steve left her for a bigger woman.
Steve broke up with his new love when she decided to have weight loss surgery, and a year ago, he rekindled his relationship with Souder.
Even though he feels guilty of her suffering health because he made her fatten up.
She suffers from arthritis in her hips and knees, which affects her mobility and usually comes with much pains.
35-year-old Marlena Plummer, is a hip-heavy singleton from New York whose hips span an impressive 7ft (83 inches).
Despite the size, Plummer often swims and even pole dances during her leisure hours.But far from letting her hefty hips hold her back, active Marlena partakes in swimming and even pole dancing in her spare time and now she is on the lookout for love.
She said, “I believe there’s somebody out there who’s going to love me for me.
“I always had hips even as an infant. I have a small appetite and it’s a mystery why my hips are the way they are but I love my hips, I love my shape and I love me.”
Aspiring actress and plus size model Claudia Floraunce, 40, moved to Hollywood from Austria with dreams of making it big.
She believes her 64inch hips hold the key to potential stardom and has amassed a legion of fans on YouTube where she posts videos about her love handles.
She said, “I find my hips very sexy, in fact I find my whole body very sexy.
“I think people like looking at me because I’m a very unique size. I’m very large but I carry myself with a lot of confidence.
“I get a minimum 27 marriage proposals every day. To have curves is in and I’m in – finally.”
