SOUTO, Simone Valéria Dias et al. Body image in adult vs. middle-aged and elderly women practitioners and non-practitioners of hydro gymnastics. Motri. [online]. 2016, vol.12, n.1, pp.53-59. ISSN 1646-107X.  http://dx.doi.org/10.6063/motricidade.5000.

The aim of this study was to compare the body image of adult vs. middle-aged and elderly women practitioners and non-practitioners of hydro gymnastics. The sample consisted of 300 Brazilian women aged between 20 and 83 years (48.96 ± 15.41), divided into four groups: Group 1 = 75 adult women not practitioners aged between 20 and 49 years; Group 2 = 75 middle-aged and elderly women not practitioners aged 50 to 82 years; Group 3 = 75 middle-aged and elderly women practitioners aged between 50 and 83 years and Group 4 = 75 practitioners adult women aged between 20 and 49 years. The instrument used to determine the current and desired body image was the Scale Drawings of silhouettes described by Stunkard. The results showed no significant differences with body image dissatisfaction among groups of adults vs. middle-aged and elderly vs. practitioners vs. non-practicing (p> 0.05). However, there were significant differences between the dissatisfaction with the actual body image vs. ideal for all study groups (p< 0.05). We conclude that the age and the practice of hydro gymnastics are not determining factors in the perception that women have body image.
