The History Behind The Painful Routines of Body Grooming

May 26, 2015 1 min read

Staying bare down there is a chore. For decades, women have been putting themselves through the painful routines of body grooming. However, past methods of body grooming were less high-tech than the lasers we have today. Women's grooming trends have changed drastically thanks to cultural changes, modern technology and new trends. Where did body grooming all begin? Pubic shaving actually originated in Egypt and Greece when prostitutes had to shave for both hygienic reasons and as a clear sign of their profession. Evidently, pubic hair was considered uncivilized in ancient Greece. We've all seen those hairless Greek statues. Women wanted to resemble the look by plucking or singing off all their pubic hair . Crazy, right? Pubic beauty standards are fluctuating all the time. Women are looking for other alternatives to keep the hair off. Let me walk you through some of the major body-waxing trends of the last century. 1900s-1920s The now famous brand Gillette introduced the first safety razor for men in 1904 and the first ever women's razor in 1915. Plus, this was the start of The First great Anti-Underarm-Hair Campaign. Ads told women to clean up their hair! 1940s During World War 11, there was a nylon shortage. Advertisers encouraged women to shave their legs. 1946 Bikinis were introduced to the US. Women tweezed or shaved their pubic hair outside the panty line. 1960's Getting rid of unwanted fuzz was easier than ever thanks to the introduction of waxing strips. As you can see, body grooming is constantly changing. Today, women have the choice of waxing, threading and laser removal. What's your hair removal preference?

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.
