If you’ve already been to a class, you will have noticed how it makes you feel – like you’re a part of something special. Addictive, right? If you’ve just started, then there are a few things you need to know, such as what pole dancing wear to buy, what to pack into your gym bag and which Instagram accounts to follow.

You can follow our blog to find out everything you need to know, but in this article, we’re going to be focusing on pole dancing wear.

Gone are the days of pole burn! There is a new development in garment technology being pioneered by sports brands such as high-tech textiles of which we have incorporated into our designs at Dushko International. This garment technology makes for incredibly breathable and robust pole dancing wear, that actually wicks moisture away from your skin, to keep you cool, even in the hot weather.

Let’s take a look at the 5 essential items you need for pole dance class:


1. Pole dance shorts

At Dushko, we have four types of shorts available which will cover all your pole dance fitness needs; Gigi Shorts, Joy Shorts, Mya shorts and Burlesque Shorts.

They were designed with functionality in mind, so not only do they allow you absolute flexibility, but you’ll look sexy no matter the moves you’re pulling.

Our 4-way stretchable sports fabric makes for extreme comfort, keeping everything in place during a wide range of movement.

From high-waisted to low cut shorts, we got you covered in a wide variety of colors.


2. Sports bra

When it comes to sports bras, we also have four types available; the DH Sports bra, the SportyMesh, the Tribal, and the Xara.

Depending on your preferences, we have a range of styles that provide support for light to intense physical activity.

For maximum skin exposure, we recommend the Tribal sports bra, which allows you to establish multiple contact points between yourself and the pole.

It is designed to keep your girls in place with its slight overlap in front suitable for all bust sizes.


3. Sports dress

An essential, multi-functional item that can be worn to and from class. You don’t want to be pitching up in your shorts and heels. The best thing about our dresses is that they can be worn on a tennis court or even on a golf course.

Available in a wide array of neutral colors, this would be the perfect outfit to wear to pole dance competitions should you start competing one day.

Looking the part is important in pole, and these elegant dresses will do the trick!


4. Shirts

We know what you’re thinking, why not wear any old tee in your cupboard? You certainly can, but why not instead look the part with one of our three shirts designed for exercise?

We have the Rey Mesh, which is great for yoga, pilates, running, gym exercise, climbing, cycling, dancing and a host of other sports activities.

They come equipped with thumbholes to keep your top in position and are available in black or white.

We also have the Summer Night Shirt, which is sporty and sexy. It is cropped, meshed and super cute. It can be worn over one of our sports bras or a regular bra with a pair of high-top jeans for a day out in the town.


5. Leggings

Lastly, no pole dancer can go without a pair of leggings.

Another great option for pre and after class pole dancing wear is our leggings. At Dushko International, we have two types; Moyo and Yogini.


Our Moyo’s are high-waisted and 4-way stretchable, meaning they’re incredible for any workout, including yoga and pilates.

We designed these precisely to move with you in any position. Due to their breathability, the Moyo’s are perfect for strolling around the mall and can even be used as streetwear coupled with a pair of sneakers or boots.

They are stylish and super comfy, so they’ll most likely be your go-to bottoms for any casual activity. They are available in grey, a color that goes with everything! Trust us; you’ll want to buy more than one pair.


The Yogini is also suitable for most workouts, but are specifically tailored for acrobatic exercise because of their heel cutouts which ensure they stay body-tight and in place no matter what pose you find yourself in.

Through the combination of style, performance and comfort, you will fall in love with both options more and more with each day.

So there you have it, our 5 essential pole dancing wear items. Whether you’re a professional or a beginner, wearing the correct attire is vital to avoid accidents or embarrassment – you don’t want something popping out in front of your new friends now do you?
