Given the significance of attitudes and beliefs in worries about body images, the present paper aims at studying the relation between worries about body images and illogical beliefs and gender-relatedattitudes. In a descriptive-correlational study, 150 female university students were asked to respond to a questionnaire about body images, illogical beliefs, and gender-related attitudes. The results of correlations showed that the worries about body images have a positive relation with feeling too desperate to change, expecting approval from others, and emotional irresponsibility. Such worries had positive relations with physiological attitudes, structural functionalism, and radical feministattitudes, but had negative relations with liberal feminist and separatist attitudes. The results of the regression analysis revealed that 44% of variance of worries about body images can be justified by illogical beliefs and gender-related attitudes. The results of the study show that illogical beliefs and gender-related attitudes are effective in worries about body images.
