Objective:The goal of this study was to create a Spanish version of the Sociocultural Attitudes Towards Appearance Questionnaire‐4 (SATAQ‐4) and examine its factorial validity, reliability, and convergent validity in a sample of women from Spain.Method:Two hundred and sixty female college students from Spain completed the Spanish version of the SATAQ‐4 and measures for eating pathology.Results:Internal consistency was high; data from EFA and CFA supported the original five‐factor structure; and results showed good convergent validity with measures of body‐image and eating problems.Discussion:Results strongly support the psychometric properties of the Spanish version of SATAQ‐4 and its use to examine perceived pressure for thinness from parents, peers and the media; and thin‐ and muscular/athletic‐ideal internalization in Spanish‐speaking adult women.
