If it's plus sized then it isn't a Barbie.
As far as I am concerned, another word for “long-term sexual partner” is “wife”. I would not be in sexual relationship with a woman to whom I was not married, and my expectation of a wife goes far beyond merely being a sexual partner or a cosmetic decoration. In fact, “cosmetic decoration” really isn't a major purpose of a wife at all.
It would not make me unhappy if my wife looked like a beautiful supermodel; so long as she retained the much more important and meaningful traits that truly make her suitable to be my wife. As it happens, I did not marry someone who looks like a supermodel or a porn star or any other such image that we are constantly given of what a beautiful woman should look like; and that's OK. She is beautiful in more meaningful ways, that are not nearly so obvious from a superficial glance; and that will last well beyond the point where the more superficial form of beauty is lost to the ravages of age.
Now don't get me wrong. I greatly appreciate the sight of a beautiful (in the conventional, superficial sense) woman. But as far as what I need in a life partner, that isn't even on the list. It'd be a nice luxury, but it is not at all a requirement. Fortunately, my wife is secure enough not to terribly mind my admiration of the superficially-beautiful women we encounter. Sometimes, she'll even point one out that she thinks I might particularly admire. Often, of course, she'll playfully tease me over the fact that most women who are really attractive are young enough that I could be their father.

We can be Godless and free. • “Social justice” through forced redistribution of wealth. • Silencing religious opinions counts as “diversity”. • Freedom without moral and personal responsibility. • Civilization can survive the intentional undermining of the family.
I have seen more than a few older women (by my standards, anyway) who still have rather nice behinds even in spite of their age. That isn't quite as common where large breasts are concerned.
I'm not saying that it is required that any woman I stay with maintain that level of appearance. It would be nice, of course, but one would hope that the relationship was based off of stronger things than simple lust by the time one reached that age anyway.
A fat Barbie for a fat country.
So instead of keeping thin role models to encourage people to lose weight...just fatten up the role model.
