Width doesn't matter that much for multiple reasons. If you're a women you need to have wide hips to carry a child. Also, not everybody is the same height, which results in different widths of your hips. Your hips could also be wider from surgery or having a child.

Instead of thinking about how wide you are, think of how in proportion you are. Your waist should be from 60-90% the size of your hips. If your waist or hips are too large then you may have a problem.

To calculate what percentage your waist is of your hips:

Size of waist / size of hips x 100
