  1. Note. BIMTM-FB-BF = body fat dimension of the Body Image Matrix of Thinness and Muscularity (with the perceived actual, felt, and ideal body); BIMTM-FB-M = muscularity dimension of the Body Image Matrix of Thinness and Muscularity (with the perceived actual, felt, and ideal body); BMI = Body Mass Index; BAS = Body Appreciation Scale; DLS = Drive for Leanness Scale; DMS = Drive for Muscularity Scale. S1 = online-sample, S2 = student-sample (paper-pencil); * p < .05. ** p < .01. *** p < .001
