Sheyla Hershey, of Kingwood, Texas, said her size 38KKK implants saved her life.

No airbags, no problem.

A Brazilian model, actress and former record holder for the world’s largest fake bosom has credited her enormous assets with saving her life.

Sheyla Hershey, of Kingwood, Texas, said her size 38KKK chest cushioned the blow from a post-Super Bowl car accident when her airbags failed to deploy.

“I’m so lucky to be alive right now,” Hershey told Houston TV station Fox 26.

Hershey said she was on her way to visit family Sunday when she lost control of her vehicle and slammed into a tree.

Authorities have charged Hershey with a DWI, though she said she wasn’t drinking and passed a breathalyzer test. Hershey takes medication for bipolar disorder and depression but that had never impaired her driving before, she told Fox 26.

“I just think it was a bad day,” she said.

Asked whether she truly believed her breasts saved her life, Hershey said, “they definitely did because they’re very sore right now.”

Hershey is a former Guinness World Record holder, but reportedly lost the title in 2010 after removing her size MMM breast implants because of a life-threatening infection.

The 31-year-old later boosted her bust back up to size 38KKK last November, the UK Daily Mirror reported.
