Vote Now for Miss Bumbum! Brazil's Rear of the Year Contest Opens Online

August 06, 2015 1 min read

Monday was opening day for the fifth annual Miss Bumbum contest in Sao Paulo's city centre. 27 women, one from each of Brazil's states, showed up in bikinis to compete. The initial contestant pool was made up of over 500 women hoping to bring home the national title. Voting takes place online and the 15 most popular contestants on the event’s website will move on to a televised pageant on November 9. Though the current leader is Luciana Hoppers from Santa Catarina with 12.57%, that could change as voting intensifies. The contestants include a former porn star, a Kourtney Kardashian lookalike and a DJ known for her enormous breast implants. The contest is groundbreaking though in that it isn't just for the models and dancers. Last year Juliana Bittencortt, a plus-size model, made the top 28, and Patricia Oliveira became the oldest contestant ever when she competed at the age of 39 last year. And while there have been allegations of vote rigging and bribery in the past, the contestants seem ready to bare it all In a further boost to the growing body confidence movement, several of the contestants proudly strutted in their bikinis with their stretch marks on full display on their sculpted buns. Undeterred by magazine standards of perfection, these women paraded the streets in their yellow and green bikinis waving and stopping for photos and autographs. miss bumbum What do you think?

Shipping & Delivery

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.

Returns & Exchanges

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.
