What if Barbie Looked Like a Real Woman?

Posted by Nickolay Lamm in Fun on 1st July 2013

   

Some people say that we shouldn't pay attention to the body proportions of Barbie because she is just a toy. On the surface, that sounds like a valid argument. But a closer look, through research, suggests that Barbie may lead to the following…

Heightened body dissatisfaction among young girls (Dittmar)
Unhealthy eating behaviors (Dittmar)
A desire to achieve a slim body and therefore eat less (Anschutz)

The above Barbie vs "normal" Barbie images were created with the help of a 3D printed model of a normal woman.

   

This white model was made using measurements that match up closely with CDC measurements of the average 19 year old woman in America.

 
The end result is what Barbie would look like if she was a healthy, beautiful, 19 year old woman.
