When we were growing up, every Barbie doll looked the same. Slender, with a perfectly thin waist, full hips and an enviable bosom. She was fair and had luscious hair, often light in colour. They were nurses, doctors, teachers and even mermaids, but had more or less the same body type. Barbie’s new range celebrates the different shapes and sizes that women come in, showing us how every woman is beautiful. 

“There is nothing more rare, nor more beautiful, than a woman being unapologetically herself; comfortable in her perfect imperfection. To me, that is the true essence of beauty.” – Steve Maraboli 

In an age where young girls are bombarded by homogenous body goals, where having a wide frame is considered unfit or being skinny is looked down upon, Barbie’s new range gives us the beautiful message that every body is perfect in its imperfections. Whether you are fair-skinned or dark in complexion, tall, curvy or petite, there’s a Barbie which looks just like you!
