[en] : To analyze the relationships between body mass index (BMI), ideal body,current declared body shape, and gap between ideal and declared body shape, and the associationsthat these have with social and cultural factors among 329 adolescents (11 to 15 years i.e., at two stagesof adolescence, the early and late adolescence), attending an international school in Luxembourg,and 281 from Paris.Methods:A cross-sectional survey was conducted using an online questionnaire.Missing data were addressed using the data augmentation method in a Bayesian framework.Results: For both sets, higher the BMI and bigger their current body shape (CBS), the slimmertheir ideal body shape, especially for those who perceive a link between body shape and beauty.For girls, slimness is a shared ideal; for boys, older they are, more they want a muscular body shape.Most students want slimmer bodies, but in affluent or intermediate social milieu students in relationsto identification to personalities such as celebrities, while students from modest milieus, this isexpressed in relation to success in love. In addition, they declared that their “talk diet with friends”were associated with large gap between ideal and declared body shape.Conclusions:A social controlnorm was revealed involving a displacement of values affecting body weight and health in the latestage of adolescence to early adolescence, especially for boys.
