Plus Size Blogger Encourages Women To "Shed Their Clothes" On Social Media

May 13, 2015 2 min read 3 Comments

Plus size fashion blogger, Courtney Mina, is on a mission to celebrate body positivity. She told Bustle that she 'struts around the house most days in only underwear and a crown,' but wanted to see what would happen if she shared photos of it with her 38,000 Instagram followers for one week. Mina said she received some 'creepy' comments and some harsh words from trolls but mainly, the response has been positive. Of her photos, she said, "My body is a unique form of beauty. It’s large, fat, curvy, and deliciously feminine, and as a body positivity activist and model, I am more than happy to show it off to the public with pride." With one selfie she says, "I feel like a goddess in this body of mine. It's a symbol of my strength, my sexuality, my identity, my confidence, and my power. No words can bring it down - only lift it higher. That's because my #curvesreign." Mina did address some of the negative comments, including one that said  'U fat whale ur disgusting [sic]'. Her response: "There is nothing that anyone can say that I haven’t already heard. And fat haters are notoriously unoriginal when it comes to insults." She says that many people mask their sizeism by claiming they are concerned for her heath but she insists that size doesn't determine health and that she is completely disease free. Mina admits to being a shy child and that she was bullied for weight growing up but now it doesn't bother her at all. She said she has found this social media experiment to be liberating. "It’s sort of been my huge “eff you” to society, sure, but more importantly it has been my huge “YES you” to the plus-size community and my fellow fat babes." Many positive commentators praised her on her confidence and her fashion sense. One said, "You are so inspiring, and you help me to look in the mirror and love myself, something I never thought I’d be able to do. Thank you." This experiment isn't just about Mina having an opportunity to show off her body, she hopes to encourage other women to do the same. I applaud Mina for loving herself as is. Being overweight may not be the healthiest way to live but if you can't love yourself, no matter your size, you're doomed. Maybe she'll lose weight one day, maybe she won't. None of that is up to us. But what should always be applauded is the ability to accept yourself as you are today. Like it or not, we do exist in a variety of sizes and not everyone wants to be thin. A woman should not feel less attached to her sexy side just because she doesn't fit the cultural norm. Self love is the best way forward, hate and shame can make you stand still. Does this inspire you to love your body as it is in this moment or do you see this a different way? Body positivity or promotion of an unhealthy lifestyle? Share your thoughts in a comment.

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.
