This demonstrates how Playboy models have gotten skinnier whereas the average American woman gets bigger.

interesting article. Not really surprising though.

as an aside - in the notes on the second page they have little factoids and one about how they redid Barbie. I know I am "supposed" to be pleased that she is slightly more realistic, but I had all these custom made barbie clothes from when I was a kid and none of them fit the newer barbies. Snarl. My barbies were trash...too many hair cuts and pool swims but my mom saved the clothes and sent them to my daughter last Xmas with a new barbie.

I bet on ebay you can find some older barbies your daughter could use and for really cheap :)

You can still get old barbies.

Maybe you need a tiny tailor...
