Objective: Investigate the ideal pattern of body image (BI) ideal established for older women and identify the relationship between the dissatisfaction degree with their BI and the variables of anthropometric and aerobic fi tness. Methods: A total of 47 elderly women (66.12 ± 3.4 years; VO2 peak 20.3 mL.kg.min-1) were submitted to body fat percentage (%BF) evaluation using Dexa and a cardiopulmonary exercise test. Body image was evaluated through the nine silhouette scale proposed by Sorensen

The dissatisfaction grade presented a positive and signifi cant correlation with BMI (r = 0.56) and %BF (r = 0.39) but not with the peak oxygen consumption (p > 0.05). Conclusion: The fi ndings suggest that the highest the body fat is the highest the degree of dissatisfaction. There was no distortion of body image among the elderly surveyed.
