According to an article by South Shore Eating Disorders Collaborative
If Barbie were an actual women, she would be 5’9” tall, have a 39” bust, an 18” waist, 33” hips and a size 3 shoe!
If Barbie was a real woman, she’d have to walk on all fours due to her proportions.
After talking out loud non-stop about all the craziness of Barbie, one of my co-workers, Miss Valerie, who has smaller kids, said that they finally are making real Barbies with real human shapes and cool occupations, but they don't have any clothes that you can change your Barbie into and isn't that a big part of Barbie? Change her repeatedly and then lose half the clothes? Of course it is!
So what do you think about Barbie? Before you say anything, I know that I am exaggerating somewhat. I don't think that every girl that plays with Barbie is going to have a panic attack because they don't look like her, but still, there are the few that will, and I'm into protecting those few. <3
