A plus-sized Barbie is creating polemic and debates about body image and the impact it can have on health. The plus-size models, (it means, anybody who is over the so-called standards for the models’ world), serve as models for a growing market and also to show society that there are different kinds of bodies all over the world. It means, women who are healthy should embrace their shapes, instead of seeking patterns that are not compatible to their types.
Considering the above mentioned topics, the Plus-Size-Modeling site thought a plus-size Barbie would reflect the reality for many people. They posted the doll’s picture on their facebook page. The image comes from an illustration contest on Worth1000 site.
