Little Miss Perfect - Child beauty pageant - Netflix

A child beauty pageant is a beauty contest featuring contestants under 16 years of age. Competition categories may include talent, interview, sportswear, casual wear, swim wear, western wear, theme wear, outfit of choice, decade wear, and evening wear. Depending on the type of pageant system (glitz or natural), contestants may be found wearing makeup to fake teeth, known as flippers, as well as elaborate hairstyles and custom, designed and fitted, outfits to present their routines on stage.

Little Miss Perfect - Study of 2005 - Netflix

In a study published in 2005, eleven women who had competed in beauty pageants as children were compared with a control group of eleven women who had not competed. They were compared in different areas, such as BMI, age and overall body satisfaction. In general, this limited study found that those who competed in beauty pageants as children were more dissatisfied with their bodies, and had greater impulse dysregulation and trust issues than those who did not participate, but showed no significant differences in measures of bulimia nervosa, body perception, depression, or self-esteem. The authors acknowledged their small sample size reduced the conclusiveness of their study.
