Like me, most of you might want to look like a barbie. Who doesn't? Who doesn't want to have a perfect figure, baby doll size body shape and lot more? But believe me, the price of beauty may be more that you're willing to pay. If you are dying to be like the unrealistic, plaything and impossible woman, you happen to have eating disorders.
Read the complete article to know why it's impossible to look like a barbie physically.
The Barbie doll is supposed to be 5'9 tall and weigh 110 pounds which are about 35 pounds less than the weight of the healthy woman of that height. Her body mass index also falls under severely underweight range.
With these body proportions, a woman would not have necessary body fat to menstruate. You see, how much a woman has to change to get Barbie's body proportions.
Can you imagine a body working without a liver? Obviously not. Barbie's 16-inch waist which is 4 inches thinner than her head will leave space for only a half liver and few inches for intestines.
Busty Barbie would only have only size 3 feet and tiny ankles which mean she'd have to walk on all fours.
Her arms and her wrists of 3.5 inch will be practically useless. Her long and skinny neck wouldn't be able to hold her head either.
Barbie's head would be two inches larger than the normal woman's head, resting on neck twice as longer and six inches thinner. Impossible it is, isn't it? She would be incapable of holding neck with these measurements.
Her fragile wrists and thin ankles would prevent her from heavy lifting, including her long body.
She is so skinny with impossible dimensions that it's ridiculous to consider her as a role model.
