In brief: More room

Certain shapes of the pelvic bones are more successful delivering babies than others.
While we now can rely on c-sections for those hips that don't bear babies well, "wide hips" usually also mean good pelvic structure with plenty of space to carry and deliver a baby in the routine fashion.
