A fitness model with “Brazil’s biggest bum” has insured her sizeable rear for over GBP 280,000.
Vanessa Ataides’ bum measures a whopping 126 centimetres (49.6 in). After a while of searching, she has finally found a company that will insure her greatest asset.
Vanessa, who has 42,400 followers on Instagram, has taken out a BRL 2 million (GBP 280,815) insurance policy on her buttocks.
She said: “I’m famous because of my bum. It’s the biggest in Brazil. So, it’s only fair that I get it insured.”
Vanessa, who is believed to be 35 or 36 years old, has her own team of personal trainers dedicated to her bum, and she wakes up at 4 am every single day to work out.
“My goal in the short term is to have a 130-centimetre (51.2-in) bum,” she said, without revealing her long-term plans.
In a post to Instagram on 2nd June, the Brazilian wrote: “Flaws? Yes, I have them. I have cellulite, I have stretch marks, I have patches and what woman doesn’t? But I always try to take care of myself so that they’re as unnoticeable to me as possible.
“Photoshopped photos? You’ll hardly find any, as I’m not perfect and I don’t have to hide my imperfections, as others’ opinions don’t affect me.
“I’ll repeat once again, your standard of beauty is the one that makes you feel well and happy with yourself.”
Vanessa may have the biggest bum in Brazil, but the world record belongs to the USA’s Mikel Ruffinelli, whose hips are 2.4 metres (8 feet) in circumference.
