I’M in Love With the Shape of Me! Product Curvature Preferences As a Coping Strategy
We posit that self-discrepancy with respect to one’s body curvature may induce coping behavior impacting product curvature preferences. When body shape satisfaction is low (high), curvy women show a preference for angular (curved) products, a dissociation (assimilation) strategy. Body-shape specific affirmation can attenuate dissociation coping curvature preferences.
