This Artist Highlights Body Image Struggles Women Regularly Face (Even Though They Shouldn't Have To)

September 09, 2015 2 min read

Women struggling with their body image is not breaking news, but exposing these issues in new, innovative ways to help the world understand them is certainly something to talk about. From calling out the fat shamers to starting body positive campaigns, there are people working endlessly to help women step out of the dark, be proud of who they are, and educate others on the body image struggles women are really facing, and why. One artist is taking it to the next level visually, and it's incredibly thought provoking. Artist Cecile Dormeau's illustrations seek to highlight the body image issues women struggle with to both help women come together and realize these anxieties are just normal issues many people have. "We hear and read everywhere that we should be proud of our bodies the way that they are, that all bodies are beautiful," Dormeau said. "But on the other hand, we are constantly bombarded with fitness and diet ads. 'Eat less cheese or your butt will sag'.'" body image illustration The images serve both to bring light and a little humor to these issues, as well as an understanding of them. "We girls have a tendency to easily find faults in our appearances, so if my followers can recognize themselves in my illustrations and laugh at them (and with them), I hope that it can help them de-dramatize the flaws that they see in themselves. Once assuming your flaws, you can finally stop caring about them and start to focus on what really matters to you," Dormeau explained. 1. Stomach folds body image illustration 2.

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.
