There is no consensus on exactly what her measurements would be, but here are some ideas:

  • If Barbie were a real person, she would be 6' 0", weigh 100 lbs., and wear a size 4. Her measurements would be 39"/21"/33".
Also, She would not be able to menstruate, hold up her back and neck, would have to crawl on all fours due to her legs and feet, and would have many medical problems.
  • 36-18-33
There was actually a study done by both Yale and Duke Universities to answer that type of question. "Using hip measurements as a constant, calculations were made to determine the changes necessary for a young, healthy adult woman ... to attain the same body proportions as Barbie... Among the changes necessary were for the female to increase 24 in. in height, 5 in. in the chest, and 3.2 in. in neck length, while decreasing 6 in. in the waist." Since the average 20-year-old American woman is 5 ft. 4.5 inches tall, Barbie would have to be at least 7'4".
  • I believe that's about right is she was scaled up to have a pelvis the size of a normal women.
  • She would stand 7 feet, 2 inches tall. Her measurements would be 39-23-33. (that's bust, waist, hips)
  • For the contemporary belly-button Barbie, they would be 36-18-38.
  • When I was a kid, I was told that if Barbie were a real human, she would be over 7 feet tall. Her physical proportions are that warped. But I did a Google search, and some of the answers say that the 7 foot-thing is wrong, that she'd actually be 6 feet tall (but she'd be 6 feet tall and 100 pounds, which is literally an anorexic weight). Her measurements are also disputed, but they are still warped: something like 38/18/38.

So, there may not be a consensus on the actual numbers, but it seems that everybody does agree that her proportions are totally out of whack, at least.

If thy we're , i think kids will totally love it, and one more thing , barbie has a LIFE SIZE doll yeah.... thats alll...../.....

All the above is fake. Standard height = 11.5 inches. Being 1/6th scale the height would be 6 x 11.5= 69 (inches) 69 inches is 5 foot 9 inches in height. Where did 7ft high come from?? In case you didn't know, this is a toy NOT a real person.

What would you use to measure the size of force?

To measure the size of a force you could use a joule, as it's a newton meter (ba-dump ching!).     Assuming this was a serious question and not a setup for the newton m

Is there a plus size Barbie?

The doll closest to a "plus-size" in Barbie's world is the 1999 Rosie O'Donnell doll. She was made with a unique body mold very different from Barbie and her friends.
