Curvy Bobbi-Jo Westley says her sizable saddlebags and 10 STONE legs make her irresistible to men with an appreciation of the larger lady.
The 43-year-old model, from Pennsylvania, America, is known in the Super Size Big Beautiful Women modelling community for extreme figure.
And her hips and bum have made her a hit with men around the world – with fans splashing out on steamy webcam sessions.
She said: “I’m very confident and it’s my body so if I want to show the world me naked or in bra and panties that’s what I choose to do.
“I’m famous for my hips and for my butt. It’s the first thing that people notice.”
Despite weighting 490lbs, Bobbi claims she eats mostly salads and that her size is mainly due to a thyroid condition.
She said: “I love salad; I can eat it all day. I also like barbecue chicken and barbecue pork chops. I love macaroni and cheese and I love rice too.
“I’m not much of a sweet eater but I do like big cakes.”
Bobbi got into modelling three years ago after being approached online.
The mother-of-five had always been slightly bigger but then began to pile weight around her hips and butt after each of her pregnancies and with the development of an under-active thyroid.
Now Bobbi makes $2,000 a month from her webcam sessions and modelling work under her stage- name - the Ultimate Pear.
She receives 40-50 Facebook messages a day from men requesting explicit pictures and webcam sessions - which can last from anything from a few minutes to an hour.
Bobbi said: “People often think it is fake and that I have had surgeries. But I’m definitely 100 per cent real. There is nothing fake about these curves.
“I get 40-50 messages a day from men asking if they can marry me or have a baby with me. They really like my confidence.
“I’ve had men who I never thought would want me but have tried to pull me.
“They come from all over the world - the UK, Australia, India, Unites States - it’s hard to keep track.”
Bobbi says bearing her fleshy folds has caused her confidence to soar and says that stripping off gives her a sense of empowerment.
She said: “I just like doing it. I like playing dress up. I’m not ashamed of my body.”
But despite her body positivity, not everyone is flattering of Bobbi’s size 32 figure.
She said: “Some people mock me and my size but I don’t pay any attention to negativity.
“Most people hate people because they have taken their low self esteem. So they have to make fun of somebody else to take it off them.
“I don’t care what others think about me or what others say about me. I am confident in my skin - it’s who I am.
“My hips and my butt is what makes me.”
Despite her defiance, Bobbi admits her weight does cause her some problems.
She said: “I do think about it - obviously it’s not healthy for me to have this body frame. But I just take it one day at a time and I live life.
“It scares me sometimes because I do have asthma and when I walk, I do gasp for air. I am still able to walk – it just takes longer than the average person.”
Bobbi also has problems getting around and fitting into regular-sized chairs.
She has to shuffle sideways through supermarket aisles and is too large to fit comfortably in the bath.
Bobbi said: “I would like to run and play with my kids like being in a swimming pool and being able to get out without help.
“I’d like to be able to actually sit in a bathtub and relax.”
Bobbi’s hips measure a staggering 91 inches, making them among the biggest in the world but she is determined to push forward with plans to make them the very biggest.
She would need to eclipse American Mikel Ruffinelli whose hips measured 99 inches when they were measured in 2013.
However, she is in two minds as she knows going for the record will put her health in jeopardy.
She said: “Sometimes I lay down at night and think to myself if the next breath will be my last.
“There is a possibility I could have the world’s biggest hips. And if that happens that would be awesome. I’ve never been a record breaker before.
“But if the doctors tell me I need to lose weight or I’m going to die then I’m going to everything to lose it.
“I’m not ready to die. I want to see my kids and grandkids grow up.”
