The purpose of the study was to determine the correlation between an individual’s body image disturbance and self-esteem. Body image disturbance was measured through Body Image Disturbance Questionnaire (BIDQ). Self-esteem was measured through Rosenberg Self-esteem Index (SEI). The sample size was 250, with 125 females and 125 males. The study involved the subjects completing the BIDQ followed by SEI. The scores were tallied and the Pearson’s correlation values between the two factors of body-image and self-esteem was calculated and interpreted. Results showed that the scores of body image disturbance were significantly negatively correlated with self-esteem.
