February 05, 2015 2 min read

Sports Illustrated comes out with their ever famous swim suit issue every year - featuring some of the most beautiful and coveted female bodies. This year for the first time in history, they are using a plus size model in one of their ads -  Ashley Graham, who is a size 14. She is rocking it in a tiny black bikini as part of a campaign for swimsuitsforall, #CurvesinBikinis. She will be among the pages of Sports Illustrated's regular models Benhati Prinsloo, Chrissy Teigen, Heidi Klum, and Adirana Lima. Ashley says the world is ready for more curves in bikinis. What do you think? Take a look at the article and the video for the ad reposted from http://www.etonline.com/news/159150_ashley_graham_rocks_tiny_bikini_sports_illustrated_swimsuit_ad/   Plus-sized model, Ashley Graham, is making history by posing in Sports Illustrated’s annual swimsuit issue. Graham stars in the first ever ad to feature a plus-size model in the pages of the highly anticipated issue. This means that along with the usual models — Benhati PrinslooChrissy TeigenHeidi KlumAdirana Lima, to name a few — a curvier woman totally rocking a string bikini will be in the same pages. “I know my curves are sexy and I want everyone else to know that theirs are too. There is no reason to hide and every reason to flaunt,” Graham says in a statement.
The ad is part of a new swimsuitsforall campaign, #CurvesinBikinis, that aims to help celebrate the beginnings of the ‘Curvy Girl Era’ and to help women feel confident and sexy in any swimsuit. “The world is ready for more curves in bikinis,” Graham says of the campaign.   The 27-year-old model who is a size 14 has been very vocal about the need for the media to embrace curves. In January, she penned an essay for Net-a-Porter’s online magazine, The Edit, encouraging women to love their bodies. "I think that you can be healthy at any size and my goal is to help and educate women on that,” she wrote. "It doesn’t matter if you’re a size 2 or 22 as long as you’re taking care of your body, working out, and telling yourself, ‘I love you’ instead of taking in the negativity of beauty standards." The Sports Illustrated swimsuit issue hits stands on Feb. 9. Watch the video above to check out the new ad and to learn more about the campaign   I think she looks incredibly beautiful and sexy!   Feel free to follow me on my Facebook page or check out more from me on my blog at www.zuzanaorbodyrockaddict.blogspot.com

Shipping & Delivery

Fast, Express Shipping.

Due to COVID-19, shipping systems the world over are experiencing abnormal delays. While health and wellness companies are essential services, there is simply an enormous demand on postal and delivery services as individuals and hospitals need more supplies than ever before. 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 4-5 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. You will receive the tools you need to stay safe and strong at home through this difficult time. Thanks for your support and understanding.

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.
