Happy to be big

Thursday, January 02, 2014

SARAH Massey's bottom is 2.1 metres wide — and she couldn't be happier.

The 33-year-old from Chicago in the US says she has a new found confidence in her body shape after posting pictures of her bottom online and getting plenty of positive feedback from "fans".

Although she holds no official record, Ms Massey believes her bottom is the biggest in the world — so large that doorways often prove a challenge.

Massey wears size 10XL trousers and admits shopping for clothes can be difficult. She also says she has broken chairs and once cracked a toilet bowl by sitting on it.

But big behinds are in her blood, so she has learned to accept her unusually large behind and even take the bad comments that come with the good.

"At school I was teased and called Dump Truck Butt by the other kids, but the condition is hereditary — there's nothing I can do about it."

Despite her new-found love of her large frame, Ms Massey says life is not always easy. She has limited mobility and receives a disablilty pension.

But Ms Massey says there are plenty of men who appreciate her curves, including Albert, the father of her sons.

Ms Massey now hopes to inspire other women to love their bodies just the way they are.

"I'm trying to make the most of what I've been given and being confident about who I am makes me happy," added Ms Massey.

"If I can inspire others to embrace their curves and be proud big, beautiful women, I would be very happy."
