American Apparel Bikini Harrassment

July 31, 2014 2 min read

There’s been a buzz around an American Apparel controversy, this time, from an experience that one of their loyal customers had. Basically, here’s what happened: 30 year old barrista Lisa Conn went for a dip at her local pool wearing an American Apparel bikini, or at least, she tried to before a security guard told her off because of her “inappropriate attire”. After some ridiculing and a bathing suit inspection by a lifeguard Conn was finally able to swim, the next day she went through the same process and was kicked out of the pool. Even after Philly’s Parks and Rec coordinator confirmed that Conn didn't break any rules, they didn't offer an apology or a solution. Screen Shot 2014-07-28 at 5.13.09 PM This whole story, to me, is just ridiculous. I don’t think it even warrants the attention that it’s getting because it seems like a ridiculous event to occur in the first place. Her attire was found inappropriate (not exactly sure why, because it’s fairly tame from what I can see), and some people have suggested that she just bite the bullet and wear something else. There’s definitely merit in that suggestion, but I’m trying to imagine if it was me in her place; if I had just been humiliated publicly for a swimsuit that I thought was cute, and had probably cost me a pretty penny, personally, I’d complain. Also, taking to social media is not the worst route you can go, especially after going through other channels to no avail. Really, I’d probably b*itch on twitter far before I’d think to talk to city counsellors, so I've got to take Lisa Con’s side on this one – stop the body policy. Do you follow us on Instagram?

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.
