These shortened forms of the excellent 34-item Body Shape Questionnaire which is described in:
Cooper, P. J., Taylor, M. J., Cooper, Z. & Fairburn, C.G. (1986) The development and validation of the Body Shape Questionnaire. International Journal of Eating Disorders 6:485-494.

What I have mounted here are the following files:

In the past I have said:

   If you are planning to use this questionnaire in a study, I would
   be very grateful if you would communicate with me so that I can
   give you any advice that may be useful.  I may also be able to
   arrange for scoring and analysis of the questionnaire if you
   don't have the local facilities for this to be done easily.

I haven't worked in body image or eating disorders for over a decade now and the only person who ever took me up on that, did so when I was buried in other work and I was unable to assist them and have now lost contact details with that person (apologies if you do see this, do get back at me if it's still pertinent). However, I do work on psychometrics still so if you're interested in doing a good analysis of moderately large dataset of BSQ34 data to recheck the shortening specification but you need psychometric help, do try Emailing me!
