This chapter provides a review of the research on positive body image and gender, with a focus on adults, adolescents, and children. It complements and builds on the comprehensive review conducted by Tiggemann (2015), which included a focus on positive body image, age, and gender. In the current chapter, we reviewed available research that includes other targeted subgroups that have been impacted by life course events, such as pregnancy and childbirth. Research that specifically examines positive body image among other cultures and minority identities is covered in Chapter 3 of this book, by Viren Swami (see also Coppola, Dimler, Letendre, & McHugh, 2017; Tiggemann, 2015). In addition, in this chapter we discuss whether positive body image is distinct from negative body image.
