What's the Perfect Woman...(For a Man)?

October 15, 2013 3 min read

What's the Perfect Woman for a Man You’d think that women would understand men...understand what makes them tick.  We know that they are visual in the way that women are auditory.  Auditory meaning there is a direct connection between what a man says to us and whether or not we are attracted to him.  It’s really no secret that men are visual creatures.  It’s strange though how little we women know about what goes through a man’s head, what makes him tick, etc.  We fuss over not having shaved our legs or not having our makeup done...does he even notice?  But most importantly...does he care? Here’s a 10 Question survey that Glamour Magazine did last July...how does this tally amongst the guys? (http://www.glamour.com/sex-love-life/2012/07/what-men-think-about-womens-bodies#slide=10) 1. 78% of men would rather date a confident plus-size woman than an insecure supermodel.  (This one actually shocked me a bit...) 2. My favorite part of a woman’s body is: Her butt: 22% Her chest: 17% Her legs: 7% Her face/eyes: 15% Other: 10% The whole package: 29% 3.Your girlfriend/wife calls herself fat. React. What the heck? She’s gorgeous. I’m with her, after all: 28% We all have insecurities. I’d try to help her feel better: 61% If that inspires her to improve herself, I’m all for it: 11% 4. You generally find that women… Have an accurate opinion of what they look like: 18% Are overconfident about their looks: 10% Should have more confidence in their bodies: 72% 5. My ideal female body type is: Athletic and ripped, like Cameron Diaz: 8% Super skinny, like Zoe Saldana: 2% Fit but womanly, like Jennifer Lawrence: 34% Very curvy, like Christina Hendricks: 18% A fuller figure, like Melissa McCarthy: 3% Cute and compact, like Rachel Bilson: 17% I dig ‘em all: 18% 6. And have you ever dated a woman who didn’t have that body type? Yes: 84% No: 16% 7. Have you ever been disappointed when you saw a date naked? Yes, she wasn’t what I expected: 28% Um, no. Are you kidding? She was naked!: 72% 8. Do you compare women’s bodies to the ones you see in magazines—or porn? Yeah, I can’t help it: 14% Probably subconsciously. But I try to remember that real women don’t have the benefit of good lighting and retouching: 51% No. That’s just fantasy: 35% 9. Would you ever date a woman who is taller than you? Yes: 70% No: 30% 10. Which gets your attention more? How sexy a woman’s body is: 41% How much confidence she carries it with: 59% The number one thing I pulled out of this is that men (in general-obviously not all) critique our bodies about 100x less than we do as women.  We are conditioned from a very early age to critique women around us almost as potential threats.  There’s this subconscious idea that we should all be on the lookout for that trim, sexy, confident woman that is going to “steal” our man.  It creates this competitive nature among women...tearing each other down, dressing to impress other women, and always trying to be better-to look better.  Even I do it, I look at another woman and tally what she has that I don’t.  It’s awful.  The only way I know of to curb this is to, instead of looking for faults, try to envision yourself through a male’s eyes.  We have nothing to fear from other women...when we look and are afraid it is only our own faults and shortcomings that we see reflected back on us.  That might be a good place to start the change.

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.
