The informal practice of policing one's physical appearance because it does not conform to social norms, or is not deemed appropriate for a particular setting. Personal preference and attraction do not necessarily qualify as body policing.

"Yeah, I decided not to hire that woman, her visible body hair and lack of makeup seemed too unprofessional to me."
"Hey, man, that's body policing."
