Denise Bidot Is Dying to be the First Plus Size Victoria’s Secret Model

August 05, 2015 2 min read

Twenty-nine year old, Denise Bidot, made history at New York Fashion Week back in 2014, becoming the first plus-size model to walk the runway for two straight-size brands. Denise says it would be 'so cool to see someone really curvy and confident' on the Victoria's Secret runway, and she ‘would die to be the first.'

Earlier this year, the Puerto Rican and Kuwaiti plus-size model participated in an un-retouched swimwear campaign for SwimSuitsForAll. Denise not only confidently revealed her sexy curves but also shared her stretch marks and cellulite with the world. "It is about being confident in your own skin,” she says. She certainly embraces her own advice.

'We just need women to be empowered and to be kind to each other and to be kind to ourselves,' she said, adding, 'No one is going to love you the way you love yourself’ – ‘it is such a huge problem that women are so programmed to feel that only one way is beautiful.' Hopefully we’ll continue to see women of all sizes on the runway in the future. Current Victoria’s Secret models Elsa Hosk and Jac Jagaciak are on board with the movement.

We see thin models and plus-size models, but rarely anyone with an average body weight. 'There are so many women in between who need representation,’ says Denise.

'I think we are in a really good place,' she states. 'I have been working as a model for the past eight years and have seen how drastically things have changed.'

This young woman is definitely proving that confidence is the new sexy!

Would you like to see Victoria's Secret have plus-size models walk the runway?

Shipping & Delivery

Fast, Express Shipping.

Due to COVID-19, shipping systems the world over are experiencing abnormal delays. While health and wellness companies are essential services, there is simply an enormous demand on postal and delivery services as individuals and hospitals need more supplies than ever before. 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 4-5 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. You will receive the tools you need to stay safe and strong at home through this difficult time. Thanks for your support and understanding.

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.
