8 Reasons To Love Your Thighs

February 06, 2015 3 min read

It's time to get real about your thighs. It’s well-documented and generally accepted that women have a love-hate relationship with their bodies (and many men do too, but this one is for the ladies, especially because I happen to be a lady, so that’s the body relationship experience I can speak to). It isn’t good for our souls nor the way we see ourselves to be constantly bombarded with images intended to prescribe beauty to us, mostly based on the entirely false idea that every women should possess near-impossible proportions and near-unachievable flawlessness in order to be attractive. For every Photoshopped thigh gap dream sold to young girls by a media that fears and loathes a real woman, there are a thousand tears shed over a smattering of cellulite. It’s a disproportionate rationing of perfectionist imagery to sadness caused, and it’s not fair. Bodies Now don’t get me wrong: If you’re naturally thin and beautiful or if you work hard and eat well and earn rock solid abs, then power to you. The point I’m trying to make is: It doesn’t matter if there’s an inch of space between your thighs or if they mush together from your vagina to your knees. Either way, your thighs are beautiful because thighs inherently are beautiful (and useful and strong and a whole bunch of other amazing things that are wholly not dependent on their size nor shape). And it’s high time we started celebrating our bodies the way they are, because we’re stuck in them, and as the old saying goes, “If you can’t be with the one you love, honey, love the one you’re with.” Here are some reasons why you should love your thighs exactly as they are. 1. Because they are yours and you have them. The best reason to love your thighs is because they exist. They are real. You can feel them. You can walk around with them. You can touch them and look at them and put them in nice jeans or show them off in cute dresses. Be happy to just have them. 2. Because they’re makeshift mittens when it’s cold. It’s cold outside, right? Your thighs are perfect right now because when you’re sitting around, trying to get warm, you can press your hands in between them and huzzah! Instant warmth. I also like to sit cross-legged on the couch with my feet pressed into the nooks behind my knees for some of that sweet thigh warmth. 3. Because they’re good cushioning for when you’re wrapping your legs around someone’s hips. I mean, who doesn’t want some padding between their thighs and the hips of the person they’re thrusting the bits between them into? 4eYO2tt_G85VgUQohoBQUK9ZFHGR-45_HNrleyIPxGY 4. Because someone, somewhere loves them. You shouldn’t need validation from other people, but think about the fact that SOMEONE (or maybe even many someones) love or have loved your thighs at some point. Public opinion can’t be all wrong, now could it? 5. Because if you’re ever facing off against a Bond villain, you could get them in a powerful head lock with your formidable thighs and save the day. What? It could happen. 6. Because have you ever seen someone’s head disappear between your legs? It’s pretty sexy to have someone’s face disappear between your rolling thighs. It’s like a watching a giant destroying some fleshy mountains, mouth first. I’m sorry, you’re not going to be able to un-see it now. jMd3gee_w6lGiMm_lYGP8gelysWafhHoBCVPUIAYSow 7. Because have you ever heard Nicki Minaj complain about her thighs? Every woman in the media is idealized to within an inch of humanity, but there are also role models who tend toward a slightly less airbrushed or supermodel-esque image. Look at them. Look how their bodies are shaped differently. Look at how Kim Kardashian was pregnant and huge and flaunted her body in tight dresses. Look at Nicki wobble her fatty bits. Look at Lena Dunham naked and shameless. Think about how you see these women’s bodies as beautiful and perfect even though they’re not like Gisele’s and start to think about your own body the same way. 8. Because you deserve to be loved — all of you You deserve love. Your thighs, big or small, deserve love. Unless you’re a cold-blooded murderer or torturer of kittens. If either of those are the case, please carry on self-loathing. Otherwise, love yourself and your thighs because you’re not only worthy of it, you owe it to you. #keepitreal #realthighs Do you have a reason to love your thighs we didn't list here?

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.

Clothing

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.
