What If Disney Made Princesses With Realistic Bodies?

02

While Disney may be shaking up its attitude towards women, with the introduction of badass characters like Merida from Brave and Elsa from Frozen, dropping the obligatory wedding finale, and exploring mother/daughter or sibling love, they still have a way to go in redressing the female form. Disney princesses consistently defy body reality and place more pressure on young girls to conform to an unattainable standard of beauty. Disney princesses waists just can’t support bodies. They are physically impossible. Where do the organs go? Loryn Brantz, an illustrator, has decided to revise the classic, outdated shape and offer a more life-sustaining alternative. We wouldn’t want our favorite princesses keeling over from malnutrition right?
