9 Fun Facts About Breasts

May 19, 2015 2 min read

Breasts come in all shapes and sizes. Regardless of if you're a woman or a man, you can't deny that boobs are awesome. So, why not celebrate boobies with 10 fun facts that you may or may not have already known?

Breasts Are Getting Bigger

According to averaged data from various lingerie retailers, the average woman now wears a 34DD-sized bra. That's up from a 34B 20 years ago! That's the same band measurement but about three inches bigger around the fullest part of the chest.

.....That May Be Wrong as Most Women Wear the Incorrect Size

According to even more averaged out intimacy retailer data, about 85 percent of women are wearing the wrong size bra until properly fitted. Grab some measuring tape to figure out your correct size, or get a bra fitting with an expert.

It's Normal To Feel Pain/Discomfort When You Exercise

In fact, almost one in three marathon runners experiences breast pain, according to a recent study.

Breasts Can Move A Lot

This goes hand in hand with the above fact. Get this: When women run, so do the boobs - in a sort of figure-eight shape. They can travel up to eight inches!

They Can Get Very Big (or stay small)

The current Guinness World Record for "largest natural breasts" was awarded in 1999 to a woman whose bust measured 70 inches around its fullest part. That's 5.83 feet!

They Aren’t Always Identical

On average, one breast is usually about a fifth of a cup size larger than the other.

Breast Augmentation Is Still Going Strong

About 286,000 patients had their breasts augmented last year—although that's down seven percent from the previous year.

The Bra Is A Relatively New Invention

Mary Phelps Jacob received a patent for the "backless brassiere" in 1914. That being said, Ida Rosenthal and her husband William, founders of Maidenform, created the bra with its current sizing standards in the 1920s.

Nipplegasms Are a Real Thing

As in, orgasms triggered by your nipples.

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 2-3 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.
