Relationships among components of the Body Dissatisfaction (BD) subscale, Body Mass Index (BMl), and relevant anthropometric measurements, including waist and hip circumference and abdominal skinfold were examined in 127 freshman and sophomore women. With one exception, Spearman's rank order correlations between questions on the BD subscale and anthropometric measurements of body parts were all significant at p <.05. These correlations were strongest between BD components and their anatomic referents. When corrected for body fatness, only the relationship between lower trunk and relevant questions from the BD subscale remained significant. In an ANCOVAR design, with hip circumference as the independent variable, BMl as the adjusted covariate, and dissatisfaction with hip size as the dependent variable, main effects were highly significant (F = 11.7, p <.001).
