Barbie's Boobs & Butt Are A Little Bigger

Doll modeled after plus-size model Ashley Graham


Shock horror - this Barbie has thighs are touching!

The little blonde doll has copped a heap of flack year after year, for her unattainable and somewhat unrealistic body-image but now - there's a Barbie breaking the mould.

Plus-size model and Sports Illustrated covergirl Ashley Graham has had a one-of-a-kind Barbie doll modelled after her - unveiling it at Glamour’s Women of the Year summit in Los Angeles this week.

The plastic figurine's measurement are more like the everyday average-sized woman and reflect the curves of the 28-year old.

“We need to work together to redefine the global image of beauty and continue to push for a more inclusive world. I’m thrilled Barbie has not only evolved their product, but also has continued to honour women who are pushing boundaries. It’s an honour to be immortalized in plastic,” Graham told People magazine.

“The thighs touching was one way to show young girls that it’s okay for your thighs to touch, despite society saying that a ‘thigh gap’ is more beautiful,” she said.
