Experimental data from 200 adult women, majority White, recruited from Prolific Academic. Participants exposed to one of four body messages (curvy ideal, athletic ideal, thin ideal, non-prescriptive body acceptance), then reported state social comparison, four body image outcomes (body surveillance, body appreciation, esteem for body looks, esteem for body function), and trait social comparison.
