My Sonali's body *looks* orangey at first glance, until you see the exact same body color on a doll who's skin it actually matches, and then it doesn't look "orangey" so much as "too light". But it still comes off to me as "orangey" without a reference doll. Her body color is an exact match with Candace, my recently purchased 2008-tagged #26 (I pantsed them and compared butts side by side), and looks the same as Marisol's as well, though Sonali's skin is, of course, much darker than either of those two other dolls.
She'd look a lot less strange if they used the same color fabric as on Addy instead, since their skin's a closer match. Rollsinsnow's Sonali may or may not have the exact same body color as mine, I can't tell from a photo, but based on my Sonali, the answer to the "orangey" question is both "yes" and "no" at the same time. Neither Candace nor Marisol come off as "orangey" to me, so it's relative. But they should be labelling Sonali as "dark skinned" and sticking her on that line to get her body fabric, she'll look even nicer in a bikini that way. I do like that bikini on her, though, is that AG or another brand?
Just for reference, who's body color does Kaya match? The dark skinned dolls or the medium skinned ones? Since there seems to be a lot of variations in her skin tone...
