Abstract:

While there has been no shortage of literature examining body image as well as beauty ideals, there has been relatively little that has tried to explore and explicate exactly what is meant by the terms body image or beauty ideal in mass communication research, and how those concepts are then related. Indeed, those terms are often used interchangeably. This has led to some often confusing and contradictory results in the literature, much of which could be cleared up by situating the research into a broader framework. This paper tries to do just that, suggesting a new term, self-body image, that situates both body image research and beauty ideal research within the broad theoretical frameworks of Social Comparison Theory and Self-Discrepancy Theory.
