â€¢ If Barbie were an actual women, she would be 5'9" tall, have a 39" bust, an 18" waist, 33" hips and a size 3 shoe. â€¢ Barbie calls this a "full figure" and likes her weight at 110 lbs. â€¢ At 5'9" tall and weighing 110 lbs, Barbie would have a BMI of 16.24 and fit the weight criteria for anorexia.

I think the manequin they made hurts their claim. The mannequin is not in the same proportion as the doll, and that make me quesiton the validity of their stats. I completely agree that the doll in unrealistic for real-life, but it's a doll and there are plenty of dolls out there with unrealistic proportions.
