Different body types exist and some women can have that figure, not to mention it's stylized , like seriously not everyone has a belly

Our beloved glass-slipper-losing princess has a few more curves to show off. Wearing her gorgeous gown, she proves you don't need a dainty figure to be the belle of the ball!

2. Ariel

This little mermaid’s got a fuller tail and a bold attitude. No more stick-thin princesses for the under-the-sea kingdom! Ariel’s ready to explore new depths of self-confidence and body acceptance.

3. Belle

The brainy bookworm just became the poster child for fuller-bodied beauty. Flaunting her stunning yellow gown, Belle shows you can be brilliant and beautiful, regardless of your dress size.

4. Rapunzel

Letting down her luscious locks, Rapunzel stuns us with her new princess look. Who says you need a slender figure to climb a tower of confidence?

5. Jasmine

Our Arabian princess is flying high on her magic carpet, rocking a fuller-bodied look. Dressed in her iconic turquoise outfit, Jasmine’s proving you don’t need a slender figure to rule the kingdom and charm a street-rat-turned-prince!

6. Prince Eric

I am glad that most of the men I know never looked at these cartoons to be realistic.

This ambitious, hard-working princess is cooking up something new! Trading her petite frame for a fuller figure, Tiana's showing us that body diversity is the key ingredient in any successful fairy tale. Dressed in her elegant green gown, she's proof that beauty comes in all shapes and sizes – and that true success starts with believing in yourself and embracing your unique beauty.

10. Elsa

Actually decent. Probably the shape would be a little different if she was wearing structured clothing or a corset, however.

The icy queen is heating things up with her empowering new look! Exchanging her slender figure for a curvier one, Elsa’s teaching us that true beauty is not defined by size. Dressed in her enchanting blue gown, she shows us that confidence and self-acceptance can conquer any frozen heart, reminding us to let go of outdated beauty standards and embrace the magic of body diversity.

11. Mulan

This warrior princess has swapped her slim figure for a curvier, more realistic one, proving that body diversity is as strong as any sword. Mulan’s strength, determination, and newfound voluptuousness show us that heroines come in all shapes and sizes — and that true courage comes from within.

12. Belle And Adam

She was pretty poor, so probably in between. I have no idea how the curse would effect Adam's body.

While Belle dazzles in her iconic yellow gown, showing that intelligence and beauty come in all shapes and sizes, Adam’s now a fuller-bodied prince, teaching us that happily-ever-after doesn’t depend on a lean, royal physique. Together, they’re challenging stereotypes and inspiring us to embrace love and acceptance, proving that true beauty lies within.

Wyethe Smallish's whimsical, witty work encourages us to embrace diversity in all forms, shattering narrow beauty ideals. With these charming characters, she's making fairy tales more relatable and inspiring us to love the skin we're in. While Disney is changing the game, what does it mean for real-world relationships? We'll be diving into why some men find curvier figures so appealing in our next piece!

I see maybe four pictures that would be considered "realistic body sizes". Cinderella was fine as is, since it's meant to show how miss treated and malnourished she was, due to her step family. Mulan, it made sense to make her more muscular, she's a warrior. Everyone in the Disney world (aside from Cinderella) would be a more normal body shape with a range from 5 - 15 more pounds added. Of course this is a range depending on background, and way of life. Of course some of the members could be much heavier than this as well. For example, Jasmine lived in the castle her whole life, it's not like there is exercise equipment around, she could have definitely been heavier life her father. This is also true for Rapunzel. Realistically, there should be body shapes for the princess ranging from the original photo of Cinderella all the way up to Ursula from the little mermaid.
