New Photo Shows Barbie's Proportions On Real Woman

Posted: Updated:

It's no secret that the everyday woman you see walking down the street in no way bears any resemblance to Barbie.

Humans come in a variety of sizes and shapes. But a new picture may shock you.

The woman you see here is a model, and she's co-founder of "Healthy is the New Skinny."

See those lines drawn on her body? Those represent Barbie's proportions on a normal person.

It turns out Barbie would have an oddly pointed chin, a waist about half the width of her chest, absolutely giant eyes, and a neck that seems unlikely to support a head.

Dr. Argie Allen, director of clinical training in the Couple and Family Therapy Program at Drexel University, joined the FOX 29 News at 5 to discuss the photo and what we can learn from it.
