i wrote about ‘Lammily’ - the new, more accurate, doll hoping to replace the highly inaccurate body porportions of Matell’s ‘Barbie’ :
“Lammily promotes realistic beauty standards, because she is made according to typical human body proportions.”
In addition to her realistic proportions, Lammily wears minimal make-up and comes in everyday wear — shorts, a denim shirt and sneakers.
Now, Charlotte Allen wants you to know just how nasty, bad, sad, pathetic regular female bodies are:

Gee, that sounds like a fun doll! Who wants a doll that that shows what the the “average” woman “really looks like”? Guess what? The average woman looks average-that is, just like Lamm’s prototype doll in the photos: so-so face, thick-ish waist, and well-fleshed thighs that may not say “thunder” but certainly say “storm warning.” There’s a reason why average women aren’t hired as supermodels. They look, well, average, and who wants to look at average? And how about those “chic” clothes on Lamm’s prototype-this is supposed to be a fashion doll? (Hints to Lamm: If you have a thick waist, a wide white belt isn’t going to make it look slimmer. Also, a skirt that hits the exact middle of your um, average, thighs thighs is not the most flattering length for you.)
That’s right girls - Charlotte Allen wants you to be ashamed of your body..because that is what really empowers women.
Happy International Women’s day….
