The aim of the present study was to investigate the factor structure of the Italian version of the Verbal Commentary on Physical Appearance Scale-Partner (VCOPAS-P; Carriere e Kluck, 2014), which assesses comments on physical appearance received from one’s partner. The participants were 313 Italian women. Item analysis and confirmatory factor analysis were performed; the convergent validity of the scale was tested by examining correlations between the VCOPAS-P and both the Body Shape Questionnaire-14 (BSQ-14) and the Couple Satis-faction Scale (CSS). In line with the original version of the scale, the trifactorial structure of VCOPAS-P was confirmed in the Italian version: Negative Weight and Shape (NWS = 9 item; α = 0.87), Positive Weight and Shape (PWS = 4 item; a= 0.70), Positive General Ap-pearance Subscale (PGA = 7 item; a= 0.87). With regard to convergent validity, the NWS and PWS subscales significantly correlated with body dissatisfaction; both PWS and PGA subscales significantly correlated with dyadic satisfaction. These findings suggest that the VCOPAS-P can be a useful and reliable instrument for the measure of the comments on phys-ical appearance received from one’s partner among Italian women.
