Candice Swanepoel steps outside of her comfort zone for a topless shoot (PICTURES)

November 23, 2013 1 min read

Candice Swanepoel has referred to herself as an introvert, but she seems to be bursting with confidence in her latest photo-shoot.  The South African model strips off for a series of playful black and white shots taken by photographer Matt Jones for the latest issue of i-D Magazine.  Candice cheerfully shows off her  figure in images that have been artfully illustrated by New York based artist Brian Donnelly, aka KAWS.

Looking good: South African model Candice Swanepoel shows off her body in a new photo-shoot for the latest issue of i-D Magazine

The model was first spotted by a talent scout while she shopped in a flea market in Durban at age 15, and was then catapulted from her rural town of Moori River to the most prestigious catwalks around the world.

Protecting her modesty: Candice, 25, covers her assets with a skateboard while an animated snake, drawn by artist KAWS, looks on appreciatively   Even though she's showing some skin, it's so refreshing to see a woman celebrating her body in a playful way rather than a sexual way. Sure tons of men are going to be drooling all over her stunning figure (just as they always are), but having this level of body-confidence doesn't come easy to any woman - she's just had a bit more practice. Personally I find these images incredibly tasteful and creative. As much as I envy the Angels (and their adorable undergarments), it's great to see one of them take on another role asides from sultry temptress. The female form has always been a central part of art. And though the images that grace the VS catalogues may be beautiful, I don't know that I would define them as art. This is. What do you think of this photo shoot? Is it empowering or just unnecessary?

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.
