Body Mass Index (BMI), weight loss attempts, pubertal timing, body ideal internalization, and peer appearance teasing were examined in relation to three dimensions of body-esteem; weight-based body-esteem (Weight), appearance-based body-esteem (Appearance), and beliefs about how others view one’s body and appearance (Attribution). Participants were 758 Swedish 16-year-olds. Results showed that the factors examined varied in importance depending on gender and body-esteem dimension. Whereas a majority of the factors examined were related to the Weight dimension, fewer were related to the Appearance dimension, and almost none were related to the Attribution dimension. Furthermore, the factors examined were generally able to explain a much greater amount of variance in girls’ body-esteem than boys’.
