How many girls dream of looking like Barbie when they grow up only to realize its physically impossible?
Estimates of what a woman would look like if she had Barbies measurements rack up so to speak at about 39-20-33″. She would be 6 to 7 feet tall and only weigh about 100 to 108 pounds.
Photographer and artist Nickolay Lamm aimed to answer this question recently by creating 3D images of a Barbie doll with a real-life. Lamm used CDC measurements for the average American 19-year-old female in creating his doll she has a 33.6-inch waist and weighs 150 pounds.

I adored Barbie as much as the next middle class white kid, but after gazing at Lamms doll for a minute, it was the archetype that looked strange.
These images exemplify the bizarre and fictitious ideals girls and boys grow up with. Im not even sure what Mattels motivation is in keeping Barbies crazy measurements wouldnt a more realistic version sell just as well? Were not even getting into the cultural and racial diversity Barbie lacks.

Does it come with a tacky tattoo on the back and a smartphone in hand constantly texting?
Why does Barbie have to look real? When I was a kid, I never gave a single thought to her proportions, nor did any of the other little girls. We just loved dressing her up.
the artist appears to like junk in the trunk. not so bad.
no man wants barbie. no grown straight man even cares about barbie.
if every guy wants barbie, supposedly, then why not chide women for wanting a guy that looks like ken, but anatomically correct?
Because we have to figure out how to indoctrinate victim classes at the earliest possible ages.
(Me-—I think Ken’s gay).
Yep. So why does this Lamm guy get all the press for this stupid idea?
150 lbs. for a 19 year-old girl? Fat-Ass Barbie would be a better name for it.
Does this bikini make my ass look big? LOL.
Rachel Jentel must be skewing the results.
A 19 yo female with a 33.6” waist is......average?
“Lookit that thar big woman, Alvin! Ain’t she a beaut!”
"Author Graeme Donald has uncovered the secretive Borghild Project while researching the history of the Barbie doll - which was based on a post-war German sex doll toy."
Ummm....and who said anything about anatomically correct?
i mean if they’re gonna paint all men with a broad brush the brush can be turned on them too. every person who buys bvarbie buys it for a girl, does that mean all girls want to look exactly like barbie? only girls play with barbies. are they all lesbians? no boys do, they don’t drool over barbies. no hetero grown men drool over barbie dolls.
Hey, they forgot the tramp stamp.
aging hippie vegan barbie?
cmon most women like sex, it’s just they’re control over the guys to say they don’t.
