How To Know What To Wear For Pole
It’s a pair of legs, get over it! – and I can get the moves way easier with these luscious pins out.
The shorts start to get shorter. The tops become crop-tops. Why the exposure of the stomach? A major no-go-zone for most women. For two main reasons:
- For some more challenging pole tricks it’s helpful to use the skin on our stomach and back to grip the pole. For moves such as going upside-down with no hands and leg-hangs* the extra stomach skin-grip goes a long way. * this is where the poler is upside-down with a leg hooked on.
- The relationship with your body has shifted.Instead of looking in the mirror and thinking “eurghhhhh”. You look in the mirror and think “if I can get this leg over here… yep good… and squeeze my arm against the pole here…. and tummy grip is there… ta-dah! Nailed it! This move looks so good. I can’t believe I’m actually doing this!! Someone get a photo!”
You shift from hating your body to seeing it as a magnificent tool that enables you to wondrous things. Things you never imagined you could do. Don’t get me wrong, most of us still have our hang-ups. You might have your stomach on show but still think to yourself “y’know it’s not perfect, or super flat and toned like the celebs, and it’s wobbly …. but I need it for this move, that move and that mega-mega move. So it’s fine, it’s good enough, and it has it’s purpose. It’s staying out! Years 3-4-5… Let’s introduce the pole wardrobe. Over the years, you’ve built up a collection of pole outfits. And you’ve got the confidence to wear funky styles that are more you: Sling-backs, velvet leg warmers, suspender belts, cut out backs, fun patterns, bright colours, and the teeny-tiny pair of pants that you admit are ridiculous but equally sensational. Why not?! The confidence oozes out and you feel like a badass doing your pole routine in the. most. amazing. outfit. Years 5+ Hmmm… naked pole anyone?
Now I want to know where are you in your pole-wardrobe journey? Have you edged to short-shorts? How long did it take to step out of leggings? From the get-go or maybe you needed a bit more time? Did you skip a year? Has anyone thought about doing naked pole?! 😉 Comment below, tell me all!
