What Would Barbie Look Like If She Were Proportionally Correct?

"Barbie has been the center of controversy since she was invented in 1959. The thin, busty and leggy blonde became a hugely popular toy, but her body shape has been criticized forever because she’s not quite proportional. And by not quite I mean not at all.

In fact, if Barbie were a real-life person, she would be “6 feet tall with a 39″ bust, 18″ waist and 33″ hips.” She would be facing serious medical issues and would basically tip over if she tried to walk on those tiny feet.
