Barbie was always known for her shapely body – small waist, tight and high derriere, and full bust line. Well, that scenario worked well for Barbie but for us real girls? Well, not so much. Take a look at what we found. A real woman who wants a "Barbie" body is facing a lot of surgery and probably disappointment. In other words, the "Barbie" body is unattainable.

According to Aqua's famous song, "Barbie Girl," "life in plastic" is "fantastic." But judging from this photo showing how Barbie's proportions would look on an actual human woman, emulating Barbie doesn't seem all that great.

The photo began making the Internet rounds after Australian blog, So Bad So Good" tweeted it: 

The woman in the photograph is model Katie Halchishick, co-founder of Healthy Is The New Skinnyan organization dedicated to "revolutionizing how we think about, talk about, live in and love our bodies."

This is hardly the first time that someone has pointed out how unrealistic a Barbie doll's proportions are, but it's still interesting to see the proportions drawn out onto an actual body. Some initial observations:

– Oddly pointy chin.

– A chest about half the width of her chest.

– Giant eyes!

– A neck that seems unlikely to be able to support her head.
