    LOL...it does sound like a chat-up line...a really bad one though. A midwife explained to me recently that women basically have 1 of three types of pelvic shape...
    1. A heart shaped pelvis, which is perfect for baby to get out of (presumably you have one of these!)
    2. A more masculine, narrow pelvis, which is harder for babies to get out of and often leads to a back to back labour
    3. A type so rare that she couldn't even remember what it was (and she was the Head of Midwifery.

    Notably, women who have heart shaped pelvis' don't necessarily look like large hipped women and those who have narrow pelvis' don't necessarily look narrow-hipped.

    i dont think he'd make it up, just stating a fact that you have an 'ideal' pelvis... i'd look on it as a good thing :)
