The article concerns the problem of differences in the body-image of men and women. Students of the Academy of Physical Education (50 males and 50 females) and university students (45 males, 55 females) were investigated. The researcher's own method was used measuring 28 aspects of body image and taking into consideration the body-as-process perspective (among others, attractiveness, attractiveness to the opposite sex, health, fitness, strength, quickness, and agility) and the body-as-object perspective (image of face, eyes, nose, legs, hips, thighs, etc). The parameters of height and weight were analyzed. The results were compared in the aspects of the study major, sex, masculinity-femininity. It appeared that the students of the School of Physical Education, men and women, had a more positive body-image in the analyzed aspects than the university students. Both male students of the Academy of Physical Education and male university students were more satisfied with their body-image than were the women. Masculinity, both in men and women, correlated with the positive body-image.
