its a disgrace, if was in charge we would only make clothes up to a certain size and after that you would have to make your own or pay a tailor to make them for you. You would be either shamed into losing weight or you would be broke from all the tailor fees.
‘This is not peace, it is an armistice for 20 years.’ (Ferdinand Foch. After the Treaty of Versailles, 1919).
Being a father, uncle and grandparent of girls I've noticed when the real little ones pick out baby dolls they always go for the ugliest, baldest ones. Most newborns have some hair, so is this over representation of chemo babies wrong or anti-baby somehow? No. Young girls aren't going to buy/ask for a fat Barbie on their own (without prompting).
Besides, my daughter and my granddaughters need to have rocks in their socks so a stiff wind won't blow them away (my daughter never weighed over a hundred pounds, even in pregnacy, nor did her mother). What does that say to their self-image having a fat Barbie?

I don't think a double-chinned Barbie is a healthy idea, but I do think that a normal-looking Barbie would be terrific.
