Video: Arlington Resident Has the World’s Largest Natural Breasts

by ARLnow.com July 11, 2012 at 4:55 pm 51,745 137 Comments

An Arlington resident will be profiled on the TLC show Strange Sex this weekend. The reason? She has the world’s largest natural breasts.

Annie Hawkins-Turner, also known in the world of fetish modeling by her stage name Norma Stitz, recently moved to the Fairlington section of Arlington from Atlanta, Georgia. In a preview of the show (above), the 53-year-old talks to TLC about being bullied in school — “kids would point and stare… I wasn’t able to sit at the desk like other kids” — and her decision to not get breast reduction surgery — “why fix something that’s not broken,” she said.

Hawkins-Turner has a rare condition called gigantomastia that has caused her breasts to grow so big — her bra size is 102ZZZ — that they now weigh 85 pounds. She says she’s used to attracting attention where ever she goes.

“No one looks like me,” Hawkins-Turner said. “I’m one in a million.”

In addition to being featured on the show, Hawkins-Turner was featured on the website Gawker today.

Strange Sex will air on Sunday, July 15, at 10:00 p.m.

    um… WTH? slow news day huh? i didn’t know i had stumbled onto TMZ.com… thanks for tripping my filter Arlnow. *giggles*

    • BallstonianfromBirth

      Lol, I was thinking the same thing,,, I am proud to know that Arlington now has the eighth natural wonder of the world. Please move back to Atlanta…

      • Southeast Ben

        8th and 9th natural wonders.

  • SoArl

    She must have the worst back problems.

  • Clarendon Skank

    I have a storyline to submit to TLC about a certain Serbian lifeguard that should satisfy any ‘equal time’ concerns anyone might have.

    • calitrappedindc

      Absolutely brilliant.

    • Tabby_TwoTone

      Ok, spill. Where is this wonder?

  • Skeptical

    I do believe ARL NOW has jumped the shark.

    I’m willing to bet actual money that this post has both the highest click-through and highest bounce rate of any blog post ever published on ARLnow…

  • Good Grief

    Is this really newsworthy?

  • Buckwheat

    No motor boating there. Tug boats only!

    • nom de guerre

      Motor boating would only result in asphyxiation.

  • Bob

    To RS: Good lord. Why would ARLnow post something as stupid as this? Because you’re right. Site is going to srange places. Even the comments on posts are just annoying.

    We humans are strange.

    • Tre

      Bob, this is clearly big news.

    • drax

      It’s a huge story. I hope ARLnow keeps milking it.

      • yap

        This story’s the tits!

  • Skeeter

    Is she the one they put in the bait car?

  • Taxpayer

    Why on earth would that cameraman need a zoom lens???

      I believe it is a wide angle with an extended hood.

    • Sam

      In ARLNow’s defense, it IS news about Arlington, VA. It just happens to be news that you (and I) find pointless. But that doesn’t mean it isn’t valid “news”.

  • not your bro

    A suggestion, ArlNow:

    I don’t see any harm in posting stuff like this, but could you wrap it into the Morning Notes? Or have a daily “TMZ Roundup: Arlington” along with other solely prurient material?

    I don’t think I’m alone in saying that what I really like and appreciate about this blog is the coverage of local government and development issues, and news about interesting events in the community. Accident and crime coverage can also be helpful.

    I’m not saying you should avoid this kind of story – you can post whatever you want, obviously – but giving it its own article does seem a little unnecessary. It’s not really newsworthy, just eye-catching.

    • Ralph

      Totally agree.

    • drax

      “what I really like and appreciate about this blog is the coverage of local government and development issues”

      This is clearly a development issue.

    • John Fontain

      Yeah, why have anything fun and light hearted on this site. It should all be serious political stuff all the time. Stuff that will cause arguments and stuff.

  • Pentagonian

    Um. maybe this is ArlNow’s [not so] subtle way of saying we have living proof that the biggest boobs in Arlington are not our County Board members.

    • SArl


    • Replytothat


    • And with that, I believe you shoudl be declared the winner of this particular comments section.

      • dcbrewer


      • Maggie

        I totally agree, for sure!

    • Arlingtonian

      That’s a really old one. They used to say the same thing about about Jimmy Carter’s mother.

  • To those suggesting we shouldn’t have published this — would you feel the same way if it was the woman with the world’s longest hair, or some other record, who lives in Arlington and is appearing on national TV this weekend? Why should we have ignored this this story when we’ve done similar articles on notable residents with no complaints?

    • outoftowner

      I’m sure the peanut gallery is just mad they couldn’t bitch about a streetcar or make brown flip flop jokes (cupcake, froyo, burger, etc) with this post

      • Peanut gallery

        She won’t fit into a streetcar. She needs an SUV. Arlington needds to stop its war on cars, to keep valued residents like her.

        Imagine her on a bicycle.

    • David

      Posts like this fit in, why not have an entertaining post once in a while, anacostia may have the biggest chair, we have this lady. Did people complain when video wasosted of the kid setting a world record for stacking cups? Don’t l Ike the content, start your own site.

      • CW

        Can you please explain this “wasosted”? It has baffled me.

        • WeiQiang

          In a way, it’s precisely the correct spelling.

    • Tabby_TwoTone

      Notable residents? You mean like people who have accomplished something? Even growing one’s hair very long represents some striving toward a goal–and some work to keep it healthy enough to get to that point.

      This woman has a medical condition. It says so in your article.

      *She* may enjoy the attention, but plenty of women undergo major surgery because their breasts are give them debilitating back and neck pain.

      I know you’re going for the hits to attract and retain advertisers, but this is beyond tacky.

      • Tabby_TwoTone

        /give not are give. You should add a 30 second edit function.

      • John Fontain

        Lighten up. Not everyone views sexuality and it’s related peripheral topics as evil and disgusted. Not everyone views a persons body as something never to be discussed or to be embarrassed about.

        • Tabby_TwoTone

          You see *that* and think “sex”?

    • Swag

      “Why should we have ignored this this story when we’ve done similar articles on notable residents with no complaints?”

      Genetic mutants are not notable residents.

      Guinness “World Records” are a complete joke. If Arlington had the world record holders for simultaneous underwater ironing (look it up), would you post that?

      • drax
        • Swag

          The cup-stacking one got similar comments (quite a few if I remember correctly) but the entire thing was scrubbed and only the positive ones were left.

          The Jeopardy one was a somewhat meaningful accomplishment and was rolled in to Morning Notes. I’ve got no problem with that one.

          • drax

            I’d have no problem with underwater ironing.

        • Maggie

          That kid is remarkable. And it’s a sport, people.

          “It’s an exciting advancement for sport stacking to be included as part of the Junior Olympic Games and a tremendous opportunity for top stackers to compete,” said Bob Fox, WSSA Executive Director. “We will be one of 18 sports in this summer’s games that will draw more than 17,000 total athletes. It’s the largest multi-sport youth event in the country!”

    • Arlingtonian

      I am glad you posted the story. It’s interesting, and it’s about an Arlington resident. Case closed, so far as I’m concerned.

      I really don’t see what the big deal is that you posted this. If we’re going to have a whole new article every time a new restaurant opens, I don’t see why we can’t have a whole new article about something like this.

    • Ralph

      First off, the woman has not done anything to get to this point — it is a medical issue.

      But yes, secondly: the fact that it’s about boobs makes it feel cheap.

      • Tabby_TwoTone

        I’d expect John Fontain to lecture you about your discomfort with “sexuality” but clearly he only attacks posters on that score who admit they’re women.

    • HayDiosMio

      Like I always say, PURA PENDEJADA, bro

      Post away ArlNow.. you will always have those that bitch and complain. learn to ignore them.

      You covered it properly. If you went out of your way, TMZ style and dig up some Montel-Jerry Springer style drama, interview neighbors and bla bla bla, i’d say you crossed the line. You didn’t.

      The purpose of this article is to give the usuals around here there reason to bitch and think they made the world a better place.

    • brian


  • Mike Hunt

    I think her name is a bit too suggestive.

    • Richard Cranium

      What on earth do you mean?

  • Cate

    Oh, lighten up people, have you never heard of a human interest story?

    • not your bro

      Sure, I don’t mean he shouldn’t have posted it. I just see a pattern with the prurient material. So much of what this blog offers is really solid info for the community, I just wonder if the tabloid stuff could be consolidated, that’s all.

      • Richard Cranium

        Come on. Male or female, Gi-Freaking-Normous boobs are newsworthy and interesting.

        • not your bro

          I guess. Anyway, I’m sure ArlNow is happy with the page views.

          Like your Dad, I’m not angry. Just . . . disappointed.

          • Richard Cranium

            “Life is full of disappointments. Get used to it.”

            — Everyone’s Dad

          • Tabby_TwoTone

            Me too.

            How about equal coverage for the man with gigantic testicles (also due to a medical condition) that he has to carry around in an upside-down hoodie?

          • Richard Cranium

            Does he live in Arlington? If yes, then by all means!

          • Clarendon Skank

            See my post above. Yes he lives in Arlington, although he is Serbian by birth.

          • Grindr

            … and he is 13 inches away

      • Cate

        I wouldn’t say giant breasts are inherently prurient material. If the piece were specifically about her fetish films….then yes. But it seems more like a profile on Ms. Hawkins-Turner, and her occupation is just a part of the story.

  • Get over it

    Thanks ARLnow for posting this!

  • Replytothat

    Those are nasty.

  • Elmer

    So why shouldn’t our world class community have world class boobies? After all, we already have world class boobs on our world class board!

  • nauckneighbor

    Geez people, lighten up. I think it’s great. When people ask what’s so special about Arlington, you can say we have the worlds largest breasts. Better than a street car!

  • t

    Is it really necessary to qualify them as the largest natural breasts in the world? I doubt that there are any artificial breasts that are larger than these.

    Thanks for covering this ArlNow. How else would we know that such greatness lives among us? I suppose we would find out on TLC, but the half of us who are interested in this story are unlikely to be watching that channel.

    Anybody who thinks this shouldn’t be covered should have asked the same question about a covering a certain attractive young Jeopardy contestant from Arlington.

  • nom de guerre

    Those aren’t just breasts, they are big breasteses.

    • malaka

      they are wildebreasts

  • Nunya

    TiVo set for Sunday.

  • alex1138

    Unlike the guy in the Lamborghini…. I have NOT seen this woman around town.

    • CW

      If she came idling by my house 10 times every saturday, I’d definitely remember.

      • JamesE

        She goes motor boating 10 times every saturday

  • novasteve

    okay there really is such a thing as too much of a good thing.

    • sunflower

      good one!

  • Jon

    I wish everyone could take a second, reach back, and remove the stick that is so far firmly impacted up their ass.

    While I disagree with some of the stories that Scott puts up (I really could care less about a new restaurant opening/closing on Lee Highway), he does do an outstanding job with the diversity of articles he posts, this being one of them.

  • HAHA

    Whoever created the username ‘Norma Spenis’ just made me crack the eff up

  • Enough already

    The electricity to power the streetcar carrying those puppies will erase the money set aside for affordable housing

  • Arlingtonian

    LOL – the Gawker article misspelled our county’s name as “Arglington.” ARGGGGlington!

    • b

      gawker is a joke now… first it was after the jump cross site linking to boost page views, then the new layout and now with AJ in charge, Gawker is really becoming irrelevant. (for the record he did an excellent job at deadspin)

      anyway… kinda funny looking over the view counts for Gawker’s latest posts and ArlNow is right their with them.

  • Just Me

    I guess her bras are custom made.

    I kind of feel sorry for her, her back must hurt all the time and she can’t get much exercise to with her body being like that. Sad.

  • ballstonbrowntop

    Thank you arlnow for keeping abreast of this situation. Stories like this always keep me titillated and I think this story will rack up a lot of comments. I just hope you don’t milk it too much. Otherwise this site could go bust.

    • b

      whomp whomp…

  • drax

    The question is – would she be able to fit on a streetcar?

  • G Clifford Prout (now moderated for extra purity)

    I’ve got something for the record books. Wanna see?

    • John Fontain

      World’s smallest what?

      • not your bro

        Nice, Fontain, you made a funny! Good job!

  • Edith Wellburn

    It is not journalism to exploit, repeatedly, persons with likely untreated mental health issues. Maybe immature 7th graders think doing so is funny, but it is not journalism. Such articles are too common on this site, while real reporting of news continues to be lacking.

    • Treyv

      I agree

    • not your bro

      Yeah, I’m on this boat. If this were a one-off piece, I don’t think I would care; but given the ongoing “articles” on subjects (often crime reports) which have sensational headlines, embarrassing pictures, and titillatingly-worded copy, this seems like another step in the direction of a tabloid. Which is fine, if that’s what ArlNow wants … but I personally find it disappointing.

  • LVGuy

    What a coincidence. The woman with the world’s largest breasts lives in the same county as the guy with the world’s largest dong.

    :High Five’s self:

  • geri

    That is the winning comment.

  • KalashniKEV

    I want more Bait Car and Norma Stitz and less reports of local Democrat corruption and Beermonger/Real Estate!!!

  • nom de guerre

    I think the page views are sagging behind expectations.

  • Drunk IrishChick

    Throwing a Hotdog down a Hallway!!

    • Tabs

      Or, in your case (since you’re not a ‘chick’), that’d be a cocktail weenie.

      • WeiQiang

        It’s not the size of the dog in the fight; it’s the size of the fight in the dog.

        • Rice Queen

          . . . says the dude with the Asian “handle” . . .

  • Captain Tit McTitto

    *jiggles and falls over forward*

  • rick

    I’ve always been a “breast” man — of course we talking KFC!

  • girlFace

    meh. the comments that protest the post about it not being relevant …just snobs..it’s good to know about the characters that make up our community.

    Now we are prepared…in case we run across this person in ARCO we will know who she is
    and not be afraid !

    • drax

      Oh, I’ll still be afraid.

  • nom de guerre


  • D Molloy

    As anyone at the the brick can tell you, they’re real and they’re spectacular!

  • chris

    This is why we need streetcars…..

    • brian

      Way to objectify women.

      How is having the worlds largest breasts some sort of achievement?

      I bet any woman who has had a breast removed from cancer would take offense to this, on a “news site”.

      • brian

        that was meant for a new thread post, nothing in reply to your street car joke.

      • drax

        “How is having the worlds largest breasts some sort of achievement?”

        Ask her, she seems to be proud of it.

        Get the stick out of your rear, brian.

  • Id

    No motorboating, but scuba diving.

  • ArlingtonRes

    wow, a lot of haters on here…how bout if you don’t like the article or not attracted by the headline, DONT READ IT! This may not be a ‘normal’ story on this site, but when ‘Arlington’ is going to be talked about on a tv show millions of people watch, that is associated with the town, hence, is news to be discussed.

    • Id

      Their opinion will change when the Netflex version of the story comes out.

      • WeiQiang

        Netflex? Is this an adult alternative to Netflix? I saw nothing of this in the ArlNow Blue Book.

        Man, I gotta get out more.

  • Boom! Roasted

    Arlington ain’t that interesting, folks. This story, unlike Annie’s breasts, fit fine.

  • BlueSkies

    I love her quote – “why fix something that’s not broken” – and enjoyed learning about an unusual Arlington claim to the biggest and the best. More fun than another froyo store opening any day.

    Of course, she does live in *South* Arlington. Is that bringing on the haters?

    • Maggie

      Ah, but she lives in Penrose, where revitalization is the key word.

  • Drunk IrishChick

    She was on Tosh.0 getting motorboated by him on a motorboat!

  • brian

    She claims she needs security, and it appears she’s never been attacked, but constantly fears it.

    No mention of the move to Arlington, VA.


  • nota gain

    DC Mayor Grey’s head is as big at the breasts of Annie and therefore cannot open his mouth to respond for calls for his resignation. His mouth is sealed between his nose and chin.

  • Asher

    Now we need to see the guy with the largest natural ____ in Arlington, ArlNow.

    When is that going to be reported. . . ?

    • Tabby_TwoTone

      +9 inches (all around). After all, it’s a “notable resident” issue!
