Aim: Body image shame is a part of social shame that is experienced on the basis of body and physical characteristics, and therefore, like its superior construct, has two internal and external aspects; but in none of the questionnaires in the field of body image, attention has been paid to these two distinct aspects. The aim of this study was to investigate the psychometric properties of the Body Image Shame Scale (BISS) in a sample of Iranian students. Method: For this purpose, a sample of 925 students of Kazerun universities was selected by cluster sampling. The analysis process was performed separately in two samples of male and female students. Research data, in addition to the Shame of Body Image Scale, included four other tools: Body Appreciation Scale-2(BAS-2), Body Image Concern Inventory (BICI), Other as Shamer Scale (OAS), and Depression, Anxiety, Stress Scale (DASS-21). Findings: The results of exploratory and confirmatory factor analysis in both male and female students confirm the two-factor structure in the Persian version of the Body Image Shame Scale. The correlation between the scores of the scale and the scores of other research tools has also confirmed its convergent and divergent validity. In addition, the values of Cronbach's alpha coefficients and retest coefficients were in the desired range. Conclusions: Research findings, while confirming the two components of external and internal body, suggest the use of the Persian version of the questionnaire in Iranian students.
