What Would Barbie's Proportions Look Like on a Real Woman? Come See
by Beth Shapouri, Glamour
We know what it would look like if Barbie got married (see here and here—no, really, you MUST check out those links), but what if she were a real woman? The folks behind the Twitter feed So Bad So Good found a picture that shows her figure drawn on a model's body, and the results are, as you might expect, a little bit insane.
The second I spotted this over at The Daily Mail I thought, Oh, I'm going to have to post this one. We all know her waist measurement is ridiculous, but what's up with the tiny chin? Are tiny chins hot? This has honestly never been a thought in my life. Other observations: Her eyes are ENORMOUS, her neck is basically a toothpick and her boobs would be so high she could use them as a storage shelf.

Of course, criticism of Barbie's unrealistic body isn't a new thing, but seeing it drawn on a real woman is pretty jarring. I mean, her body wouldn't be a hospitable place for a full set of ribs, and her spine would have to be so thin her doctor would have her on Boniva in about 10 seconds. This is not hot. Perhaps Lelaina Pierce really should have made that Pulitzer-prize-winning documentary Why Barbie is Bad.
