9 Ways To Rock A Bikini - At Any Size or Shape

May 19, 2015 3 min read

Since when did having a "beach body" mean being super toned? It doesn't! You simply bring your butt (no matter what it's size) to the beach. You don't need to fast, cleanse or cut out carbs from your life to go the beach - just go! That being said, we know it's hard to be confident when you're basically in your underwear - especially if body confidence is already a soft spot for you. That's where these 9 ways to rock a bikini come from: whether they're confidence-boosting tips or a optical illusions, these small changes can make you feel much happier about being nearly naked in public.

1. Try a bunch of stuff on

Your bikini does't have to be the super trendy tiny strappy kind - especially if it doesn't make you feel good. Test out a variety of different styles, sizes, cuts and materials. Also, don't rule out high-waisted bikinis either – if you're concerned about your belly, they're a great halfway point between covering up completely and flashing a flirty patch of skin.

2. Get a tan

No we don't mean go and bake yourself in the sun or spend hours in a tanning bed - but a little bit of fake bake can go a long way to boosting your confidence in the nearly naked state. A subtle tan can make your limbs appear more toned and improve the appearance of cellulite, without masking your shape.

3. Exfoliate

So you don't want a fake tan but still want your skin to look deliciously shiny and healthy: exfoliation is another easy way to make yourself look fresh and glowy in a matter of minutes. Use a gentle scrub and remember to moisturise afterwards. Goodbye dry patches, hello hydrated sun goddess skin!

4. Waterproof your make up

For some people, it's not having make-up on than makes them feel the most self conscious at the beach. That being said, heavy make-up doesn't really fair too well in the summer months. If you really need coverage for a confidence boost, go with a slick of BB cream and some waterproof eye make up that will last through any amount of sweat or swim. You'll still feel polished but won't have to worry about your face looking like it's half melted off.

5. Stand up straight

Pro tip: it doesn't matter how fit you are, no one looks that pretty hunched over. Posture makes ALL the difference when you've not got layers of clothes to hide underneath. Don't suck it in, just stretch up tall, throw your shoulders back and stand with as much confidence as you can muster. Straightening your spine is literally the quickest and most effective change you can make - not to mention it's free. blog176

6. Choose foods that work for your body

No, we don't mean dieting. We mean choosing foods that prevent you from feeling sluggish or bloated can help you feel lighter, healthier and more likely to throw your suit on without a second thought. This is different for everyone and no one knows your body like you!

7. Think about your hair

'Big hair don't care' applies. Adding volume to your hair draws attention to the upper half of your body, balancing your silhouette and providing a distraction from any parts you may not want people focusing on. Ponytails are also effective, as they add height to your stature and stretch you out. You can also rock a sun hat!

8. Try a heel

Maybe not on the sand, but certainly pool side! Opting for a wedge sandal or small heel can make your entire body appear longer and leaner.

9. Look to others

When you need an extra boost, go online. There a million of pictures of stunning women in their bikinis and no, not just single digit sizes either. Sometimes looking at someone who is comparable to you in size and shape, looking confident, can give you a much healthier sense of perspective when you can't find it looking at your own body .

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.
