Summary This study examined the relationship between different aspects of the body image construct and self-esteem among males and females in adolescence and adulthood. The respondents were 428 adolescent boys and girls, and 426 adult men and women. Regression analyses were used to determine the prediction of self-esteem by body image variables for different groups. The results demonstrated that body image consistently predicted male and female self-esteem, although the specific aspects of body image that were important differed between genders and different age groups. Body image was particularly relevant to the self-esteem of adolescent girls. The implications are discussed.
