How many different Barbie body types are available?

Over the years, Barbie has evolved to represent a more diverse range of body types to promote inclusivity and body positivity. As of my knowledge cutoff in September 2021, there are typically four main body types available for Barbie dolls. These body types are:

  • Original: The original Barbie body type, often referred to as the "Classic" or "Original" body, features the traditional slim figure that Barbie dolls have been known for since their introduction in 1959.
  • Petite: The Petite body type is a smaller and more petite version of the original Barbie body. It has a shorter height and slimmer proportions.
  • Tall: The Tall body type is taller and more elongated compared to the original Barbie body. It features a taller stature and longer limbs.
  • Curvy: The Curvy body type was introduced in 2016 as a response to the demand for more body diversity in Barbie dolls. It has a more realistic and fuller figure, with broader hips, a smaller waist, and more defined curves.
