After discovering Curvy Barbie #32 can wear the Sparkle Girlz fashion shown here, I went to Walmart in search for some of the newly-released Sparkle Girlz fashions. Their stock was very limited. I only found two that I liked. My hope was that Curvy Barbie could wear the peach dress. The other was a "just because it's cute" purchase. Unfortunately, she cannot wear the peach dress. I should have known the non-stretch fabric would not accommodate her curves, but it was worth a try. Someone else will have an opportunity to wear it in due time.
She can, however, wear several other dolls' clothes that were already on hand, which are illustrated in her fashion show below.
I looked high and low for this Sparkle Girlz full-length sundress from last year to no avail. Because of its loose cut and knit fabric, I know Curvy Barbie can wear it. So if you own this dress and own one of the Curvy Barbies, it will be an optional fashion for your doll.
Above, Curvy Barbie wears a striped slip dress purchased through Shasha's Etsy shop. Halle wore it first (and it fit her perfectly). Again, the stretch of the fabric allows Curvy Barbie to wear it as well. Sandals are from the Style Glam Barbie (a.k.a. Resort Barbie) fashion. The sandal length is appropriate (no scrapping the cement with toes here), but the back of the ankle straps do not meet (who cares, though?).
I was surprised these Barbie separates fit. The flare of the skirt helps and the waist is a little fuller than usual, probably to allow room to tuck in the shirt. I did not bother trying to do that on Curvy, because I did not think she could pull that look off. Without tucking, the skirt completely closes in the back. We shall leave the tucking in to Grace, who wore this first.
Before closing the Barbie cases of clothing and shoes, Curvy B. tried on this Artsy Fashionista dress, boots, and shoulder bag. Much to my surprise, everything fits. (She did not try on the belt.) I did have a little difficulty getting the left sleeve over her permanently bent arm. This required gentle tugging to accomplish.
This is the final fashion, Curvy B. tried, and it is the one we decided she would wear for now. She wears Mixis Opal's turquoise dress with her own red shoes and red choker.
So until Mattel releases clothing made specifically for Curvy Barbie (see here and here), search through your clothing stashes for Sparkle Girlz, Barbie, or even Mixis fashions made of stretch fabric. You might already have something on hand for your doll(s) to wear.
