Did Britney Spears Photoshop Her Poolside Bikini Pic?

March 22, 2016 2 min read

Sunday evening, Britney Spears released an incredible photo of herself in a bikini, lounging beside the pool. The Instagram snap showed the sun bathing beauty looking incredibly svelte and toned. [caption id="attachment_126511" align="alignnone" width="951"]britney (Photo: Britney Spears/Instagram)[/caption] She looks incredible, right? The pic racked up over 170,000 likes but it didn't take long for people to chime in with a whole host of negative comments. Some of Spears' followers have accused her of photoshopping the arch in her back to make herself appear thinner. Fans have noticed that there appears to be an inconsistency when it comes to the pool's edge, saying things like "The gap in your back should be stone, not water. Bad photoshop," and "It doesn't look real. She's beautiful but there's something wrong with the pool's border." [caption id="attachment_126512" align="alignnone" width="900"]britney2 (Photo: Britney Spears/Instagram)[/caption] There were some quick to defend Spears, firing back with comments like "You people realise it is pavement under her back right? It's just her shadow that made it look darker." Others have mentioned the incredibly intense and physically demanding schedule that exists around her Las Vegas residency, suggesting that she's been working hard for that body. If Spears did photoshop this pic, can you really blame her? Her entire life has played out in front of our eyes and we've been ready to pounce on any perceived imperfection. Just last year, Spears was fat shamed while filming a music video with Iggy Azalea. She was even called a "fat b*tch" by a heckler during one of her Vegas shows! [bctt tweet="Did Britney Spears Photoshop Her Poolside Bikini Pic?"] You can't deny that Spears has worked her body into incredible form. Through diet, exercise, yoga, and meditation, Spears has built a strong, toned physique (need help with your diet? Check out the BodyRock Meal Plan). Look at her legs! You can't ignore her efforts. But maybe just this once, she wanted to avoid hearing people tell her how horrible she looks. Or, maybe the photo isn't altered at all. That could very well be a shadow on the concrete. If this is the case, how sad are we? Can we not just accept that someone has worked hard and achieved what so many hope for? Sure, photoshopping your body to appear thinner sets a horrible example, but so does fat shaming someone who doesn't. And to be honest, slamming someone for photoshopping a pic that may not be photoshopped isn't much better. In both cases, we are telling someone that their body is wrong. None of our bodies are wrong. Do you think this is a doctored photo? Has Spears lost all credibility as a fitspo figurehead? Tell us what you are thinking! Source: Daily Mail

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.
