Made-to-order refers to an item being made after your order has been placed. AinslieWear is a boutique dancewear label. We take pride in giving each and every leotard all the love and attention we possibly can. Each cut and curve, every stitch and beautiful detail is crafted by hand to ensure you receive only the best.
For the most part, we do not accept custom colourways. However, under special circumstances we may be able to arrange something for you. Email us with details of your request and we'll see what we can do.
AinslieWear is a Canadian company based in Vancouver, British Columbia. The majority of our team works in-house. Everything from the spark of an idea to product design and development; production, quality control and shipping; marketing, customer service and all the business stuff. It’s all happening here at AinslieWear HQ! We work hard as a team to ensure we deliver the best and most beautiful dancewear to you.
Every dancewear piece has been designed by Ainslie and her product development team. After months of improving and enhancing the design (considering fit, comfort and wear testing), our product is released into the world! Once we receive an order, our team of cutters and sewers hand make your leotard just for you. Meet our makers here!
Orders & Shipping
AinslieWear is crafted in our studios in Vancouver, BC, Canada. Our products are handmade and made to order to ensure you receive the very best.
With this in mind, orders currently ship within 2-3 weeks. We do our best to ship any items in stock during the same week.
This depends on where you are located. As a guide:
Manufacturing 2-3 weeks + Delivery 1-2 weeks = 3-5 weeks total from order to receiving
* This time frame will vary depending on production demand and postal service delays (i.e. holidays). * Shipping times are estimates. * Shipping may take longer in rural or suburban areas. * If there is no secure place for package delivery, you can choose to have your package delivered to your place of business.
With our products being made-to-order, items are typically ready to ship within 3 weeks of order date. By default we offer regular post, which takes approximately 5-15 business days to receive (depending on what state/province you live in!). If you need to have your order shipped within a quicker time frame, we are able to arrange express shipping for additional charge. Please note that express shipping is $35 and does not speed up the production time of your order – only the shipping time.
We may be able to assist with a rush order, however this depends greatly on our current production demand. Please contact us with details of your request, and we’ll see what we can do for you.
