future friendly balletwear

Wouldn't it be amazing if all dancewear was eco-friendly and sustainable? Unfortunately, it isn’t but that’s why we came up with Imperfect Pointes.  We are an online ballet store, championing small batch production, the use of fabrics made from recycled plastics and collections that stand the test of time. All of our leotards, unitards and tights are consciously-made in the UK. We wear-test everything on real ballet dancers so we know what looks great and makes you feel like a Prima!  

We are here to disrupt the way dancers choose their balletwear – we can all become more conscious and look stylish at the same time. Ready to make a changé?

You’ve probably read about the fashion industry being one of the world’s biggest polluters, with up to 85% of garments ending up in landfill.

We believe that your leotards and balletwear don’t have to be part of that. We also know that you don’t have to compromise style or comfort when you choose a sustainable ballet wear brand. Check out our new film - giving the dancewear industry the message that sustainability is best for dancers and for the planet.

Mayara Collaboration

We’re proud to collaborate with Mayara Magri, First Soloist of The Royal Ballet and our first Official Brand Supporter.

Mayara shares our values and cares about how her leotards are made and the impact they have on the environment. We’ve chosen a strong and passionate dancer to work with. For us teaming up with Mayara is more than her  wearing a few of our leotards on her social media page - we think we’ve found the perfect partner for Imperfect Pointes.

Ballet for everyone

We believe everyone can enjoy the fitness benefits, increased confidence & sense of well-being you get from practising balletic technique. We aim to be inclusive to all,  whatever colour, size, gender or ability you are. Feel proud of who you are and look and feel amazing, with minimum impact on the planet. 

However you choose to wear our dancewear - rock it! Mayara Magri, our Official Brand Supporter, looks fab in both our men's unitards and our women's leotards. We are working towards a bigger size range and making more non-gender specific items

It’s all about an attitude…so stand tall, squeeze that core, and come and join us.


We use recycled ocean plastic in our fabrics which inspired this collection.
