Abstract

The purpose of the study was to use retrospective data: 1) to arrive at a deeper understanding of women’s body image throughout the adult life span and 2) to identify major transitions affecting women’s body image in each of three adult life stages. Based on the life course perspective, women’s body image at three adult life stages and its development throughout the adult life span were explored.
