Disney get's a lot of flack for drawing its princesses with itty-bitty, snappable-looking waists that would definitely not house a full set of organs, but they aren't the only studio creating female characters as unrealistically svelte as these photoshopped celeb selfies.
Artists at Hello Giggles have mercifully released six non-Disney damsels from the tight lacing of their corsets and let the sort of waist that is scientifically possible for a real woman to burst free, but do you think they look better for it?
1. Anya from Anastasia
Anya's waist is nowhere near as eye-watering as the likes of princess Jasmine, but she still looks more natural with a less-defined curve at the waist.
2. Kim From Kim Possible
Kim Possible might be an absolute badass, but she could probably solve even more mysteries with a bit of food in her belly.
3. Crysta from FernGully: The Last Rainforest
I guess fairies aren't really human, so maybe Crysta is excused for her impossible bear-skin body?
4. Thumbelina From Thumbelina
Thumbelina clearly hasn't ever heard the fashion rule that your waist should always be bigger than your sleeves. I guess it's hard to turn the pages of a Vogue when you're that tiny.
5. Odette from The Swan Princess
Odette still retains her swan-like grace while wearing a more realistic waist.
6. Chel from The Road to El Dorado
Chel was a refreshingly curvy girl for cartoon standards, but if you get rid of that "pinch tool" pucker on her waist she looks more like your average bandeau-wearing babe.
7. BONUS Disney Character: Jessica Rabbit From Who Framed Roger Rabbit
Contrary to popular belief, Jessica Rabbit is actually a Disney character despite her "I'm not bad, I'm just drawn this way" image, and here the bronze bombshell is with a makeover!
Do you think cartoon characters can negatively effect the self-esteem of young girls?
