Normal Barbie

Yes it exists! Its a work of artist Nickolay Lamm and its based on measurments of an average healthy 19-year-old woman and it raises awarenes over anorexia and increasing body hatred among young women.

barbie4iIf a Barbie existed in reality, her head would be two inches larger than the average U.S. woman’s, her waist would be 19 inches smaller and her hips would be 11 inches smaller. Her waist would be four inches thinner than her head and so her body wouldn’t have the room it needs to hold all of its vital organs ( would contain half a liver and few incehs of intestines), and her uber-skinny ankles and child-size feet would make it necessary for her to walk on all fours.Plus she wouldn’t be able to support her head because the neck would be unaturally long and thin. In other words, if Barbie existed would be on a wheel chair, wearing a cervical colar and connected to feeding tubes. And yes she would also be blond, slim and long leged but certainly not so glamorous!
