n. a tendency to either underestimate or overestimate the features of one's body such as size or weight. Usually, the outcome is that one tends to wear over-sized, ill-fitting clothes. On the extreme, it may even warrant unnecessary changes which do not match one's body type and form.

BODY DISTORTION: "Because body distortion can lead you to believe that you're either too fat here or too thin there, it may result in enhancement procedures which are not at all proportional to your body build."
