Here are some special product care tips for your AinslieWear products. AinslieWear performs as hard as you do, and is known for its durability.
To keep your special leo lasting longer, please note:

  • Hand washing is ideal.
  • Machine washing should be in cold water with a mild soap as heat and chemicals can break down the elastics.
  • Do not wash with clothing that has abrasive parts such as zippers and velcro.
  • Do not use fabric softener or bleach.
  • Always hang to dry (plus, you’ll save energy!).

AinslieWear creates beautiful dancewear using specialty fabrics sourced from around the world. We recommend hand washing all laces, meshes, and items with specialty trim.


It’s easy! Grab a measure tape and let’s begin.

Girth – We think this is the most important measurement for choosing the best size of bodysuit. Start at one shoulder (centre shoulder), place the measure tape down the front of the body, between the legs, up the back to THE SAME SHOULDER POINT. This number is called your girth measurement.
Bust – Place the measuring tape evenly around your bust at the widest part ensuring that the measuring tape stays even and does not drop at the back.
Waist – You get it, pretty easy.
Hips – Place the measuring tape at the widest part of your hips and ensure the measuring tape stays parallel to the floor and does not slip up the back.
Inseam – Stand straight, in bare feet, with your weight evenly distributed on both legs. The inseam measurement goes from the crotch point to the floor.

Please keep in mind that our size chart is simply a guide, and every body is wonderfully unique. If your measurements fall right in between two sizes, we suggest you chose the larger size.

For girls who are in between girls and adult sizes, typically aged 12-14 years old, we have created the Girls XLT – the extra large tall size. It suits girls with long, slim torsos. The Adult Petite suits girls who are starting to develop curves.

However, for the best fit, we suggest you go to a retailer near you and try on an AinslieWear.


Please start by reading our guide on how to measure (shown above) and review the following measurements to help choose the correct size for you. If you are having difficulty picking a size, please keep the following in mind:

  • The girth measurement (length) is the best indicator of size.
  • If you are still unsure and between sizes we recommend you try the larger size. We tend to fit a bit smaller than many major brands.
  • If you think you are in between women’s and girl’s sizing, and are considering Girl’s Extra Large Tall (XLT) or the Women’s Petite, note that the women’s sizes are slightly wider. The Girls XLT is suited for someone who is taller but thinner.
