Abstract

In current study we investigated whether females in Eastern culture also experienced higher level of body image dissatisfaction than males, as such a pattern has been found in Western culture. Data collected from 446 Chinese college students (256 females)indicated a large proportion of females and males were dissatisfied with their body image both from the BMI-based silhouette matching test and the body image checklists. Females generally wish to have a slim figure, while no such pattern existed in males. The ideal body image females wish to have was far more thinner than those preferred by males when choosing an ideal heterosexual partner. Associations between dissatisfaction with body image and depression, anxiety, and loneliness were found only in females. Similarly, significant correlation between body image dissatisfaction and eating disorder related behaviors was found only in females, which may be related to the higher risk of eating disorders in females than males.
