Shouldn't Barbie have knickers?

I got some dresses for DD's barbie. Fine, but Barbie is still going about with a bare f*nny. Shouldn't we cover it somehow? Just seems indecent.

(ps: DS1 (5) thinks it's hilarious to pull Barbie's top down to expose her milk glands. DH is promising to play with Barbie after DS1 has gone to bed...)

Seriously, I want some knickers for Barbie, can't find any one ebay, where do they or does anyone sell them?

This outfit , for just £3 has, as well as a sun dress and formal dress, a bikini - which could be used as underwear.

barbie should definately have knickers. my dd (now 10) never commented, but my dt's(2 1/2 yr old boys) always comment that barbie has no knickers and then they laugh!

My barbie had lovely knickers. This was the late 60s though and Barbies were much more stylish then IMO!

try cutting out two minuscule triangles. about two stitches pers ide should be enough to make some knickers! or one triangle and a bit of string for thongs

Barbie goes commando? Sindy would never do that.

My dd has a Barbie with a plastic flowery pattern in place of knickers.

need some elastic and sewing talents, FG.
Can't believe Barbie wears such short skirts and nothing underneath!!

Yes, I am a prude.
DH gets to play with Barbie by hisself, later....

dd has a barbie-esqe 'Snow White' and SHE has knickers! A friend said it's because Disney owns Snow White...good old American values and all of that!

Or, on e-bay, they have this vintage underwear set . Currently at 99p

This proves DD1's declaration a while back that 'Barbie is an alien'.

our Barbie also has white plastic "knickers" that can't be removed!

Hulababy Sun 12-Jun-05 20:49:44

E-bay again - for bra and pants

Those are really good, Hula! How did you find these things?

Going to bed now before the typos get any worse....

Very careful searching! Was very concerned about what barbie doll pants might find on google!!!
