ABSTRACT
The objective of this study was to identify factors that protect young women from developing body dissatisfaction. Semistructured interviews conducted with IS young women 18 to 24 years of age revealed the influence of perceived social support on appearance dissatisfaction. A qualitative analysis showed that body dissatisfaction was ubiquitous among the young women interviewed. Results also showed that perceived social support and self-esteem determined whether participants' appraisals of their appearance were negative or positive. The findings emphasize that the protective effects of selfesteem can prevent young women from negatively appraising their appearance and using maladaptive coping strategies.
