College student Galia Slayen, a former anorexia sufferer, has created a life-sized barbie and use it as a means to battle eating disorders. Life-sized barbie had shocking dimensions - 6 feet tall with a 39-inch bust, 18-inch waist and 33-inch hips.
Galia Slayen, who made the model, revealed that a real woman with the same dimensions would weigh just 110lb, giving her a BMI of 16.24 - a figure associated with eating disorders.
"If Barbie were an actual woman, she would be 5ft 9in tall, have a 39in bust, an 18in waist, 33in hips and a size 3 shoe. She likely would not menstruate... she'd have to walk on all fours due to her proportions," The Daily Mail quoted Slayen as telling the Huffington Post.
