Use and Care
Use and Care
Remove pad inserts before washing.
Hand washing in cold water with a mild detergent is recommended. If machine washing, strap up the straps and use a Dirty Magic Bag.
Do not put in dryer.
After using your knee pads, strap up the straps neatly before tossing your BKKPs into your pole bag to keep them from getting unduly frayed.
Size and Skin Inclusive
Four sizes and strap extenders mean we fit more people than any other knee pad. We disrupted the industry in 2019 by being the first knee pad company to offer multiple shades of nude.
Small Batch Produced
Bee's Knees are sewn in small batches by a team of four to six people who are compensated fairly for their skill and labor. Ethical production makes Bee's Knees boutique; small quantities make us unique.
A slap in the face to disposable fashion, the shelf life of a pair of Bee's Knees is measured in years. Some of our materials are the deadstock of larger apparel companies like Patagonia.
I’ve always had trouble finding knee pads that worked with my thick thighs. Glad to say that Bees Knees are great! They don’t cut my thighs off in any weird ways, and I love that they are hook and loop so you don’t have to remember to put them on before your heels. -- Jamie A.
"Super cute and heavy duty protection"
I've been using these in class for a few weeks now and they're wonderful! I had an older pair from Amazon and the filling flattened out after a few uses, so I'm very happy these seem to hold up well. They look wonderful on. -- Nicole
"Love the convenience and quality!"
I really love these knee pads. I love that you can strap them on and strap them off - they are super handy. They stay in place so well, it surprised me how well they stay put. My floorwork has greatly improved. Thanks BKKP! -- Emilly
"I was using volleyball knee pads that I had to cut and sew Velcro pieces on to make them big enough for my legs. I knew I needed something better when I realized that I was going to keep pursuing pole dancing. Once I switched to Bee's Knees I realized how uncomfortable and difficult my volleyball knee pads were to use. And the padding wasn't protecting my knees as well, either. I'm so thankful that I found your company and that you create a product meant for people of all sizes." -- Katlyn W.
"I really love them!"
I got to do my first choreo class with them last week, and it was so nice to not have to worry about hurting my knees during certain tricks. The other Velcro kneepads I used had the Velcro bit pointing in, so if it didn’t line up perfectly it would press against my skin. Because Bees Knees have the Velcro facing out, that wasn’t a problem at all. You’ve got a super happy customer! -- Emma R.
"Thanks for keeping my knees in commission!"
I'm happy to report the LOVE I have for your product. I am a dancer with The Vaudettes, and we go HARD on our knees!! Having adequate protection for my "old" dancer's knees that didn't add too much bulk or take away from a sexy silhouette felt like "unicorn goals"...and then I found Bee's Knees! I'm a huge fan and preach about their awesomeness to my peers whenever I can! -- Nicole
"Perfect for my skin tone"
I'm seriously loving these knee pads for multiple reasons but mostly because they're a perfect, comfy fit, they don't interfere with pole tricks, and the nude color I got (Fawn) is perfect for my skin tone. -- Kechi N.
