Yesterday I bought this set of pole clothes:

pole candy


In my defence, I was caught without my usual training gear because I thought my class had been cancelled, but then we were all notified it was on and I needed something to train in. And ok, I'd been eyeballing these for a few weeks, so I bought them. I am surprised how good they look on my not-like-the-model, 45 year old body.

I am now being ribbed by the other pole ladies, who think I should buy these to go with them:



This after me saying that me wearing heels is a sign of the apocalypse.

It's ok, there is no show of that happening. You know, just in case you were worried.

Pole is weird, it's the only sport I've ever done that's given me the urge to collect clothes.

The training outfit looks nice. With the shoes though... I guess it would scream pole dance stripper *G*

The people who like to wear shoes say that once you try dancing in them, you'll understand. I haven't been convinced to try them yet, but i never thought you'd catch me wearing leg warmers either. :)

I used to wear legwarmers back when Aerobic was The Thing. That was in the, um, 80s or 90s I guess? *lol*

Those shoes would pose a problem for me simply because the pole would suddenly be too short to reach all the way up. (Ignoring the fact that I can't pole dance one bit to start with.) It would also make me look like a 2 m man right before I broke an ankle. :)

I LOVE IT. Seriously, I think that is a great outfit. I love legwarmers, always have. I love high heels, always have. I also love tattered jeans and combat boots (always have). LIFE IS A RICH TAPESTRY! Hurray for finding hobbies that unexpectedly expand one's appreciation for All The Things!

Seriously - I have a whole drawer dedicated to pole clothes now and given how small pole clothes are, that's a bit O.o

I love the outfit!

Related question, as someone who has never done pole, is it possible to "burn" your thighs rubbing on the pole? Do you use a powder? How does that work? I feel like I'd stick and rip my skin off! :)

Kind of - there is definitely a stinging sensation from the gripping, and also when you first start you get these funny little bruises because you're not used to it. But eventually you do get used to it and it stops stinging so much or bruising.

Also, it's not just the thighs. You use your skin to grip the pole so it's underarms, sides, anywhere that you're gripping with really.

Many people use grip aids, which make your skin stickier, rather than anything to prevent grip. The pole's made of stainless steel so it's slippery and sweat makes it more slippery. Moisturising the day you do pole is a bad idea because moisturiser + sweat = like bathing in lube.
