The purpose of the present research, was to investigate the relationship among body image concern, fear of negative evaluation and self-esteem with social anxiety. Two hundred and nine high school girls, responded to body image concern inventory (Littleton et al, 2005), fear of negative evaluation scale (Dolfi Mousavi, 1380), social anxiety scale (Dolfi Mousavi, 1380) and Rosenberg' s self-esteem scale (Mohammadi, 1384). In this research, in order to do data analysis, multiple regression method was used and results showed that: 1) "self-esteem" and "fear of negative evaluation" were the best predictors of "social anxiety", respectively and "body image concern" accompanied by them, had not significant contribute in prediction of dependent variable; therefore, it was omitted from the equation. 2) Among two subscales of "body image concern", body dissatisfaction factor could significantly predict "social anxiety". Conclusively, the results of this research showed that self-esteem is the best predictor of social anxiety in adolescent girls.
