The “Barbie Doll” has long been criticized for promoting an unrealistic idea of body image for girls.
So an artist recreated Barbie with the average measurements of a 19-year-old American girl.
On the left is the fictional Barbie, with an 18-inch waist and 36-inch bust.
On the right– a typical teen is shorter with a 31-inch waist and 32-inch bust.
Critics say if Barbie were a real woman, she would be anorexic—and her skinny ankles and child-size feet would make it impossible for her to walk.
