What if Barbie Were a Real Woman?

Screen shot 2009 11 10 at 3.21.40 PM 300x215 What if Barbie Were a Real Woman?

IMAGINE IF BARBIE, THAT ICONIC plastic ho (thanks, Urban Dictionary) became a “real” woman. How would she look?  Considering that there are 3 billion women on the planet who don’t look like Barbie, only 8 women in the world  even come close.

If Barbie were a real woman, her head would be the same circumference as her waist, meaning she’d have room for only half a liver and a few inches of intestines, (as opposed to the usual 26 feet). The result: chronic diarrhea and death from malabsorption & malnutrition.

To look like Barbie proportionally, a healthy woman would need to add 61 cm to her height, subtract 15 cm from her waist, add 13 cm to her chest, and 8 cm to her neck length.

Because Barbie’s neck is twice as long as the average human’s, it would be impossible for her to hold up her head. Her legs are 50 percent longer than her arms, (the average woman’s legs are only 20 percent longer than her arms). She’d also have to walk on all fours (her feet are so disproportionately small, her chest would pull her forward onto her toes).

REAL WOMEN
Average woman’s height is 5’4″
Their weight is approx. 140 lbs.
They wear a size 14 dress
Their bust is between 36″ and 37″ (B cup)
Their waist is between 30″ and 34″
Their hips average between 40″ and 42″
Their shoe size is estimated to be between 8.5 and 9.5

BARBIE
Barbie’s height would be 7’2″
Her weight would be 101 lbs.
She would wear a size 4 dress
Her bust would be 39″ (FF cup)
Her waist would be 19″ (same as her head)
Her hips would be 33″
Her shoe size would be a 5

    You have made me smile for a while. I would like to be as curvy as her. But I don’t like to have fixed escalated ankles.

    Yeah, LifestyleScribe, I’m with you. Crawling around on your knees all the time? Talk about rug burns.

    Hi there! Oddly enough I’m actually the model in that photo! I’m wearing a blonde wig and push up bra. I’m actually a brunette and have no boobs! Just thought I’d comment on it :)

      My feet are in-between size 3-and-a-half and size 4 (my feet are 9 inches), and I’m 15. Cinderella (Disney) is mentioned in the third sequel to be a size 4-and-a-half.

    Depends how you measure her. Barbie is 1:6 scale -11 1/2 inches = 5 ft 9 in real life, not 7 feet whatever. Her bust and hips are in proportion, but yes her waist is tiny. She’s a DOLL! When you dress a Barbie the waist has to allow for the layers of material, elastic, gathers etc, and when she is dressed she looks fine to me.
