17 Problems Only Pale Girls Understand In The Summer

June 24, 2015 2 min read

This one is for all my pasty peeps out there! If you are anything like me, you have a serious love/hate with the sun. Read on to see how many of these sound familiar: 1. You have to invest in serious sunscreen stock. You spend a quarter of your budget on the stuff and just can't understand why it isn't offered for free, as a public service!

2. Sunscreen acne.

Gross but true reality of skin that is never actually allowed to breathe!

3. You have to be basically fully-clothed at the beach.

If you're looking for skin, you won't find it here. Wide hats, glasses, shawls, wraps, sarongs. It is like traveling with your closest.

4. So many freckles. All the freckles.

You go from having a few spots in the winter to watching them grow and spread until you are more or less one giant freckle.

5. You don't tan.

You burn. Sometimes so severely you bubble.

6. The peeling.

After the burn, comes the peeling. You know it is coming, you know it cannot be avoided. If only it could happen all at once, like a snake shedding its skin.

7. You have like ten hats.

Despite hat head and sweaty hair. Despite the fact that you are just NOT suited to hats, they are a summer time clothing staple.

8. Being insanely vigilant about moles and sun spots.

You know the big C is out there, and you know you are a likely target. Some say you are paranoid, you prefer to think you are vigilant.

9. Thinking you look like Marilyn Monroe lounging on the beach in a head scarf and shades.

You know in reality you are a long way from alabaster skinned screen legend, but well, screw reality. Today, you're Marilyn.

10. You can't even fake tan.

You are orange. You are either white, or orange.

11. You have to beg off from outdoor activities even when you really want to go.

You want to hit the lake with your pals. Head out on the boat, have some beers but well, you don't your skin to catch fire.

12. You always have to know where the shade is.

You are your own sun dial. You are hyper aware of sun position and are never without shade in sight.

13. Your bright blue veins are so attractive in a bikini!

It looks like a road map on your skin. Hey, those other girls are just jealous!

14. Your white, white skin always looks a little flabby in the sunlight.

Tan adds a toned look. It's okay, I'm happy with beached beluga, really....

15. When you inevitably do get burned, people will ask you why you didn't put on sunscreen.


16. People assume your vacation was cancelled.

Or that it rained the entire time. How else do you explain a lack of tan?

17. Knowing this is as colorful as your skin gets.

You are still white but you aren't wintertime transparent so you might as well show some skin! Why should tanners have all the fun?

Shipping & Delivery

Due to COVID-19, shipping systems the world over are experiencing abnormal delays. There is an enormous demand on postal and delivery services as online shopping has skyrocketed, due to store closures and stay-at-home mandates. This is an unprecedented situation, and we are working around the clock to fulfill your orders as quickly as possible. To be clear, we are filling orders in 4-6 days, and we are shipping immediately after that. Once shipped, our shipping partner, UPS, will get your order out to you as quickly as possible. Thanks for your support and understanding.

Are you in Canada? Specifically, are you outside of a metropolitan centre? We need to alert you to a disruption in shipping due to COVID-19. Our preferred shipping provider, UPS, has informed us that they cannot guarantee express shipping for many locations. We have also seen that packages delivered to Toronto, Ottawa, Vancouver, etc, are not waylaid, but packages delivered to areas just outside of these cities are being held in transit for days or even weeks. UPS has discontinued their guarantee of 1-4 day delivery, which you can read more about here. Therefore, we can guarantee early fulfillment but not early delivery of our goods from our warehouse to your door at this time.


We want you to start your fitness journey with us as quickly as possible, that’s why we send every package to the USA & Canada via expedited or standard shipping with our partners at UPS. Once your order is received and processed, it typically takes 2-4 days to get to you once it leaves our warehouse. That’s our commitment and we stand by it.

We ship within Canada and the United States via UPS with Standard & Expedited shipping (whichever is faster)

For locations outside of the US and Canada, we ship using FedEx International (EUROPE and Other Nations), which is usually in transit for 7-10 business days, depending on location.

We ship all of our physical products with UPS, from our warehouse location in Kingston, Ontario, Canada. Delays caused due to custom withholds are not included in these estimated delivery times.

Returns & Exchanges

BodyRock Equipment

We offer a 30-day return policy, as long as: it is not more than 30 days past the date of delivery; and your item is in its original condition and packaging with the original order number. Refunds will be issued when the equipment is received back to the BodyRock warehouse, minus the original cost of shipping, and the customer is responsible for the costs of return shipping. To request a refund on physical product purchases, please contact us.

Digital Products

We cannot issue refunds on digital goods such as e-books or videos, as these are non-tangible goods that are irrevocable once the order is placed.


All of the BodyRock clothing is made to order and so is final sale. If you have any questions about sizing prior to placing your order, please contact us.
