One recent study by Tsai et al. (3) did compare self-reported body dissatisfaction and eating disorders between Taiwanese women and Taiwanese American women. Although they originally hypothesized that Taiwanese American women would have higher body dissatisfaction than Taiwanese women because of their increased levels of acculturation to Western ideals, their results turned out to be in the opposite direction: Taiwanese women reported higher scores for body dissatisfaction than Taiwanese American women. Tsai et al. speculated that, based on "social comparison theory," since most Taiwanese American women are in the minority in the environment in which they grow up, they tend to be smaller and skinnier than their Caucasian peers. In turn, they do not compare their body shape regularly with their Caucasian counterparts. Body dysmorphia may manifest in a nontraditional way and be less overt. Contrarily, Taiwanese women’s day-to-day interactions are usually with other Taiwanese women with much more similar physical characteristics; there may be more comparison in body shape that results in body dissatisfaction (3).
