Stop Comparing Yourselves to Kate Middleton

June 04, 2015 2 min read

News broke over the last couple of days that a princess was born. 

Kate Middleton

Less than 12 hours after giving birth, Kate Middleton Duchess of Cambridge, stepped out looking just as fabulous as she did the first time-perhaps, even better.

Naturally, this has sent women all over the world into a shocking frenzy and the fierce comparisons and comments have begun:

"How does she look like that?"

"I am so jealous! I definitely did not look like her!"

"That is soooo not fair!"

Totally understandable. After all, I remember what I was doing ten hours after giving birth:

I was laying in my hospital bed, barely could walk due to the numbness, and bleeding all over my hospital bed (sorry, guys-just my harsh reality). I am sure some of you can relate to that. However, some of you may have stepped out looking just as gorgeous as the Duchess herself-that that is awesome.


However, when it comes to Kate Middleton, we tend to forget who she is. Think about it this way: millions and millions of people around the world are waiting for your appearance with your newest addition. They will be looking, judging, and carefully spying. Who wouldn't want to put on a little makeup?

Chances are, she has a stylist, a hair stylist, a make-up artist (though it's been said that she actually does her makeup all by herself-just like she did for her wedding), and someone to help her with poise and grace. She is the freaking Duchess of Cambridge. 

She may be happy, beautiful, and glowing, but I betcha she is heading home to throw on those comfy black yoga pants, pull her hair back into a ponytail, and enjoy her newest little addition. 

She's human-no matter what her royal duties are. But we must stop with the comparisons.

There is no set standard of how a woman should look after giving birth. Let her be.

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.
