Synopsis: 
A scale to assess attitudes toward fluffy women is developed and validated in a university student population in Jamaica. The scale has reasonably good concurrent validity and acceptable discriminant validity.

ABSTRACT

Background: There is an absence of research on the newly evolved term “fluffy” which describes body image and personality features among women. Research on “fluffiness” among Caribbean peoples has been limited by the lack of valid and reliable measures of the concept.
