Découvrez le processus de création des vêtements Pole & Me ! Une technologie innovante et un confort accru pour toutes vos activités ! Sentez vous libre et illimité dans vos mouvements ! Sentez votre corps et non pas vos vêtements !
Pole & Me was created to bring to pole dancers clothes that meet the specific requirements of the pole dance. They are perfectly adapted for an intense physical activity. Inspired by our Ambassador, Olga Trifonova, our desire is to go beyond what has been done to date in technical apparel, serving the pole dance!!!
After weeks and month of dreaming, designing, prototyping Pole & Me collection with our personal contributions and those of our network we're very close to make our dream come true. You have the possibility to make it real by participating in the industrial production launch that we won't be able to lead without you. So choose your reward and join the adventure!
1. The satisfaction of our customers is a priority. We study in detail each of our products with the will to respond to your real needs, in terms of comfort technicality, while maintaining an affordable price.
2. High quality standards. We are very committed to provide you with high quality products that we would love to wear ourselves. For our production, we took the time to search, test and validate the best industrial partner to guarantee optimum quality.
3. We're passioned about pole dancing and we are committed to support its development for international recognition. It pushes us to go beyond marketing. To realize this commitment, our first action is to sponsor Olga Trifonova. We believe in her future in pole dancing. We wish to support her development as a high level athlete. In turn, she raises the level of the pole dance and influences positively the younger generation. In the first year, we also plan to support certain pole competitions and other events and projects promoting this development!
Our clothes are not only beautiful and comfortable; they empower you in your performance by providing you with the confidence of absolute support and total freedom. The technical nature of our clothing is studied in every detail: high quality fabrics, impeccable finishes and our technical innovation of our design in one piece.
Our products provide a technicality never seen in the world of pole dance. Each piece is designed in one piece, in an entirely “different” way. While searching for a perfect cut, we take in consideration the natural dynamics of the body in motion and elasticity of the fabric. This technique largely limits the number of seams that act as scars preventing the fabric from stretching optimally, creating tensions.
Thanks to this design, we get a garment that offers a continuous enveloping effect, an incredible freedom of movement and a renewed comfort: a true second skin!
The design of our garments respects to the maximum the morphology of the body in action. The cut in one piece provides a high level of comfort. We also made a big finishes research work to reduce excess thickness, pressure points and friction to a minimum. All tops are equipped with interchangeable bra pads for better support. To validate our choices, we’ve organized blind tests of our prototypes. Their incomparable comfort has been unanimously recognized.
We pay very close attention to our choice of fabrics. By working with the best suppliers in Europe, we offer modern fabrics, combining technicality and comfort. For 2015 collection, we innovate with high quality Lycra:
- Labeled OEKO-TEX, they take care of you and your health.
- They contain 40% cotton for a soft and warm touch.
- The innovative technology of our Lycra guarantees elasticity and optimum support.
Pole dancing is now a multitude of different styles. From our first collection we want to reflect and respect this diversity. Our first range is for women who want to develop a feminine look while preserving an elegant image.
Our models highlight the silhouette and accompany the body in every single move. We want to create clothes that encourage you to express yourself fully in your pole dance practice! We also plan to develop a men’s collection!!!
This model has been designed for girls who love pole dancing as a sport! The sportiness of this model is as much in its style and the dynamic finishes as well as its covering cut suitable even for the most athletic girls. This model is the favorite one of our Ambassador Olga Trifonova!
We use flat and soft seams. All the seams are gathered in the back to reduce skin irritation to a minimum. On the short the seams form a triangle in the sacrum area giving a feeling of additional comfort and confidence. The short is 12 cm wide between legs for the S size to ensure a total protection. The low waist has a plunging shape in the front and rise slightly in the back. The shape of the short fits perfectly the body.
While creating this model, we thought of the girls who like sweet outfits, graceful and feminine. La Romantique was designed to fit all types of silhouettes!
The top of this model is designed to offer you the possibility to adjust the length of the straps and the width of the back. The neckline of La Romantic is for all types of breasts. From sporty for smaller bra cups to diving for the greatest! The 3 unique seams placed in the front and back of the skirt are almost imperceptible to give you extreme comfort. While enfolding the body, the skirt covers slightly the buttocks.
This chic and feminine model has a fresh and stylish design. The Coquette is an essential outfit in the wardrobe of every Pole Dancer!
The top is fully elasticized for a better support. Seams are fully assembled in the back, with no pressure on the spine. Wide enough, the shorty protects you while your splits work!!!
This T-shirt is highly innovative. A usual T-shirt consists of 4 pieces and 8 seams. L’Incontournable is made of one unique piece and only 3 fitting seams! To reduce tensions, we’ve removed seams on the shoulders and have got around all the strategic zones: armpits, inside of the elbow… Our objective? Follow your natural moves to increase the feeling of freedom!
Light and close-fitting, it highlights the shoulders lines as well as your sporty to adapt to both female and male morphologies. It can be used for sports, as underwear or as a casual tee. It’ll become for sure essential in your wardrobe!
For the T-shirt, we selected a luxurious and extremely soft fabric. Also certified OEKO-TEX (no harmful substances), it contains 86% modal and 14% elastane. Modal is made of natural cellulose, most often at beech wood base. It has many advantages: highly breathable and absorbs 50% more moisture than cotton while remaining dry to the touch. Very soft to the touch and resistant over time, it perfectly keeps its color and flexibility even after many washes!
Our tops are available in 5 sizes from XS to XL included. If you are in between sizes, choose the next size up. Only the bra La Romantique is available in two sizes: T1 and T2 because it is fully adjustable and fits perfectly to the body thanks to the lacing in the back. We advise you to opt for size 1 for all sizes from XS to S and for size 2 for sizes M, L, XL and up.
All of our bottoms are available in 5 sizes from XS to XL included. If you are in between sizes, choose the next size up.
It is available in three sizes: XS / S, M / L, XL / XXL. It fits both female and male physiques!

Pole & Me, is a new brand of pole dancing clothing, born in the heart of the French Alps.
It is the result of a synergy between two highly complementary personalities.
Tonia, passioned by pole dancing, full of ideas and desire to undertake. After her studies and several management experiences in the industry, she decided to make meet her dream and her passion and create a brand of pole dance clothes that would meet her standards and requirements. In spring 2015, after a great job of market study and definition of a business model, her incredible network offers her the decisive encounter.
Johanne, a talented designer, is a specialist in technical garment in one piece. Widely experienced in the world of fashion and textiles, she goes in search of new ways of creating clothes, more respectful of the client, as well as manufacturing process and its workers!!! Former professional dancer too, in this project she finds the opportunity to put her expertise at the service of the dance evolution.
Sooner or later each pole dancer comes to the conclusion that he or she needs for training high-quality and durable outfit! The level of skills in the pole world is growing every day, tricks become more and more complex. Unfortunately, not every outfit can withstand intensive trainings! There are a lot of brands now offering beautiful pole clothes, but not always adapted for serious tests... Now there is a solution !!! Pole & Me focuses first of all on the quality! Resistant fabrics, cool cut and design - all this helps to create beautiful, comfortable and very durable clothes for real extreme pole enthusiasts !
Pole & Me is a very young brand. Its founders are young, brave and ambitious people who are ready to experiment. They have already plenty of ideas for future collections. But the most important for me is that they became very sincere and good friends! Now I know exactly what clothes I will wear during my workouts!
I've had the privilege to test La Romantique model while the development of L and XL sizes. For this outfit, the fabric is very pleasant on the skin. The shape is very pretty, very handy for pole practice, I felt no embarrassment whatever figure I practiced. The bra puts breasts at heir best and gives an amazing fit! (Better than a bra!!!) Having a large bra cup, I never felt so well and maintained. The short-skirt makes the silhouette slimmer and gives a push up effect. The skirt covers the buttocks but nicely put them in value and makes them sexy without being vulgar. However, threading was quite tricky for me. I need to get used to tighten or loosen the bra by myself.
I am delighted to participate in this great adventure and help girls to create suitable outfit for pole dancers who are not in standard sizes. Thank you Pole & Me for giving us this opportunity!
I had a chance to test several outfits of Pole & Me and feel myself all the benefits of their pole wear. No uncomfortable seams, a second skin effect, an exceptional comfort! I felt no any discomfort or stress about the outfit while my pole practice. The outfits give a good support and are very aesthetic!!! Personally I love them and I totally endorse the concept!!!! :D
We want to thank all the contributors of this Kickstarter because thanks to you we can live our dream! Our dream is to see you wearing clothes that make you feel good and that boost you to go further and further into your pole practice!
Our dream is to become a player in the development and democratization of the sport, with you! We also thank you for your participation as it allows us to invest ourselves fully in the development of Olga’s talent by allowing her to participate in international competitions.
