Thinstagrams! The Slimming Tricks Celebrities Use To Look So Trim In Their Social Media Selfies

September 07, 2015 2 min read

It takes a lot of hard work and dedication to get a trim, fit figure. You've got to eat properly, get yourself moving, and not forget to hit the weights! But what if you could look fabulous in your online selfies by simply pressing a few buttons on your smartphone? There are a whole whack of easy to use apps that will make you look thinner, instantly. And just as we may want a fast and easy 'thin' solution, celebrities appear to be no different. The 'problem,' of course, is that these thinning apps often leave evidence of their alterations. Have a look at this example from Miranda Kerr: kerr See the way the carpet warps? Killer Curves Queen, Beyoncé, appears to have also found a use for these apps: beyonce That is one warped looking phone! Say it ain't so, Gaga! gaga This one is my personal favourite: lohan I mean, wow. It appears these apps work by allowing users to stretch themselves to appear thinner and taller. Some even allow for head and neck adjustments so that the bodies can remain in proportion. And if you aren't someone who is looking to appear thinner, perhaps you are looking for MORE curves, these apps can help you too! Kelly Brook altered a beach photo to appear a little more Kardashian-esque: brook The lengths people will go to to appear more 'perfect,' whatever that looks like, have few limits. None of us should be surprised to live in a world that places so much emphasis on looking a certain way. It is sad, really. But there is an important take away here. The take away is not that you can lie and cheat your way to a 'perfect' body, it is that you should never really trust the images you are looking at. Just because something seems to be one way, doesn't mean it is. There is no perfect. Love the body you have, work for the one you want. Would you use a slimming app for your online selfies? Why or why not? Source: Daily Mail

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.


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.
