ABSTRACT: The study developed the Body Image Testing System (BITS) in which
subject adjust the size of nine body parts (face, neck, shoulders, arms,
chest, breasts, stomach, hips, and thighs) and provide satisfaction ratings
for the body parts. Body image and eating disturbance measures were obtained
from 402 female undergraduate students and 87 obese women. Five factors
measured actual-ideal discrepancy for weight-sensitive body parts, the perceptual
distortion of those body parts, and the perception of face and neck, shoulders,
and breasts. Results indicated that the five-factor scores plus the satisfaction
ratings were strongly associated with actual body size, body fat percentage,
and circumference of specific body fats.
