After getting an email from Bayshore Shopping Center in Ottawa's west-end, I had to check out the new store that has just opened up.
Ivivva Clothing is not the "little sister" to Lululemon, but instead it is the go-to place for girls. Girls who are too small to fit into other brands of sporting outfits (whether for Skating, Dancing, Athletics, or "just because").
They fit for their bodies (minus the curves that most girls have not completely developed yet. And should their "shape" change? Ivivva offers the same service that Lulu does -- they hem, mend and size clothing! Did you grow an inch? Not a problem!
The fun thing about these clothes are the "perks" that are designed with some of them. The hoodie with the hole in the back for your ponytail to poke through. The coats/hoodies with the inserts in the sleeve for you to keep your hands warm. The colors available also add to the cuteness to these items!
Another great feature in the store is the calendar. They plan in the coming week or two to have in store events for your girls, whether it be a yoga class (on weekend mornings), dance class, design events (where you can help design future clothes!).
Hours are the normal "store hours", but make sure to check it out soon! Store closes in January.
