The Hottest Swimsuits on the Big Screen

June 09, 2015 2 min read

First time I went over to Robin Rose's house, she had a poster of Farrah Fawcett on the back of her door. I was a kid, no boobs of my own yet, but I couldn't take my eyes off that red swimsuit. If I have always believed that a one-piece on the right woman can be just as sexy as a bikini, it's Farrah's fault. To celebrate Hollywood on the beach, just in time for summer Elle has come up with a list of the hottest swimwear moments on film. Phoebe Cates in Fast Times at Ridgemont High. Most people of a certain age remember when this movie hit theatres and especially when it seemed to be on perpetual loop on HBO, back when HBO was the thing your friends had, but you never did. So every time you visited them, there was a chance you'd see Phoebe Cates in that bright red bikini. Bo Derek in 10. The braids and beads! The bod! I remember the conversations among mothers for years after that film about how Bo Derek was some impossible combination of sizes like an 8 on top and a 2 on the bottom. It didn't really matter except it added to the impossibility of mortal women ever being able to pull off a tan tank and a beach run. Brooke Shields in Blue Lagoon. I couldn't even remember Brooke Shields wearing a bathing suit in Blue Lagoon. But then, even when I was ten and sneaking to watch it (friend's HBO, of course), I felt a little creepy about the whole film, lovely as she was. Halle Berry in James Bond. Halle Berry in a tiny orange bikini. Impossibly fit. Impossible. Demi Moore in Charlie's Angels: Full Throttle. She could've stopped bullets with her abs in her famous black bikini scene. At 41, she proved fitness and sex appeal are an excellent anti-aging combo. Keira Knightley in Atonement. It takes a special woman to pull off a period suit like the one she wore in this film, but Keira Knightley managed to make a halterneck skirted suit and bathing cap sexy. There should be a special category of awards for that. Pam Grier in Coffy. Hell, Pam Grier in anything. Pam Grier doesn't need a white bikini to be the hottest thing on the screen. But she can do that too. Ursula Andress in Dr. No. A ruched top bikini with a knife belt on her hip and Ursula Andress could have taken over the world with two conch shells before her hair dried. Lori Petty in Point Break. The surfer girl proves that a wetsuit is every bit a part of a modern woman's wardrobe. Cool factor: one million. Because women who can get out there and ride the waves don't get invited to the party; they are the party. Selena Gomez and Vanessa Hudgens in Spring Breakers. As much as most of us want to cringe a little at these two in this particular film, the suits are good. Especially the coral and turquoise mismatched bikini top and bottom. Those two colours will forever say summer on the beach. And the bandeau top is a classic. No tan lines! Which big screen bathing beauty did we miss?

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

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.

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.
