Last week, I was at my usual Pilates class when my beautiful instructor Stef walked in wearing the cutest Pilates grip socks I’ve ever seen. In fact, her whole outfit was fucking fabulous, she had on a cute set from Pinky and Kamal and had paired it with these retro-striped pink, yellow and blue grip socks that I’m now fkn obsessed with.

I looked down at my foot bar, noticed how sad my cheap Pilates socks now looked, and thought about how I don’t spend all this money on cute activewear just to have my ‘fit let down by boring socks. So I went on a hunt, my friends. I spent hours scouring the Interest to find a whole bunch of Pilates grip socks that are as cute as they are functional — and let me tell you, I was not disappointed.

You know who was disappointed? My boyfriend, three days later when at least several pairs of Pilates grip socks showed up at our door. Carries Vogue is my Pilates (IYKYK). And because we don’t gate-keep around these parts, I decided to compile a running list of the best places to buy Pilates grip socks you can buy in Australia, so you can feed yourself too. You’re welcome!

Next time you’re doing feet in straps, admiring your cute as fuck grippy socks, think of me and smile.
