Fit for a dancer at ivivva

Princess Peach has danced since as soon as she could. When she was two she would dance to the Elmo Slide all the time. Last year, at 3 she started ballet class at a pretty serious ballet school. She loved it but it wasn’t until this year that she has really  taken to dance. She dances for two hours each Saturday morning taking ballet, jazz and tap. She likes to pretends she is a dance teacher and creates elaborate dances for her “students” all the time with complicated recitals!  In fact, she hardly ever stands still. She’s usually non-stop dancing all the time to her favourite songs.

Recently, Princess Peach was given an opportunity for a fitting session at ivivva. For those of you who aren’t familiar with ivivva, it is Lululemon’s sister company created for active girls from size 6-14. From dancing, to tennis and everything in between ivivva offers girls an opportunity to be dressed in high-quality activewear. The fabrics are beautiful and have a perfect stretch. Each and every design in their clothing is intentional helping girls perform their best in whatever sport they are playing. As a mom worried about body image, ivivva is a store where girls are able to feel their best. Aside from the great clothes ivivva offers lots of additional programs for the communities they are a part of. From athletic classes at the store to Dreams & Goals programs, ivivva strives to support girls in every aspect of their lives.

When we arrived at the ivivva Yorkdale location we were greeted by super friendly staff! We had two employees who helped us during our fitting session. Immediately, Princess Peach was asked what sport she did. Guess what she responded? Dance! There are white boards just like Lululemon on each change room door where they can write the girl’s name. Princess Peach loved it and thought it was awesome! Princess Peach and I both noticed that the song selection played in the store were upbeat and fun. It got Princess Peach dancing the entire time she was having her fitting session.

Immediately the staff had ideas of outfits that would look great on Princess Peach. After she tried on a few outfits and danced in them, she was brought out into the store with the staff to see if there was anything else that caught her eye. The staff were extremely kind, patient and really got a sense of what Princess Peach liked. I love the colours of the fabrics are bright and vibrant for the summertime. I also love that many of the pieces are coordinating and perfect to mix-and-match.

Princess Peach decided on four pieces:

Tumblin’ Tank and Rhythmic Short.


The Tumblin’ Tank ($36)  is a racerback tank made of Light Luon with added lycra for shape retention. It is a tighter fit tank that has flat seams for chafe-resistance, with a built-in COOLMAX shelf liner.

The Rhythmic Short ($28)  is made with naturally breathable, sweat-wicking Luon. The shorts are four-way stretch making them a breeze to move in. They feature a wide, smooth waistband that won’t dig in.


Perfect Your Practice Jacket and Set the Pace Skirt

Ivivva review

The Perfect Your Practice Jacket ($78)  is made of Luon fabric which is naturally breathable with added Lycra for shape retention. It is a slim fit and perfect to layer over your favourite outift. There are Thumbholds and Cuffins finger covers to help keep your hands warm.

The Set the Pace Skirt ($48)  is perfect on the court or for play. It has a built-in shorts liner for added coverage. The loose fit of the skirt allows for ease of movement while the fabric is still breathable, and has two-way stretch.

Princess Peach and I were so thrilled with our purchases. Not only does she love wearing them all the time, but I can see how confident she feels in them when she wears them.  The price of the items are on the higher end, but the quality of the fabric is much better to similar pieces from other companies making them last longer! Although we didn’t need to hem anything that we bought, ivivva also offers complimentary hemming ensuring that each piece fits perfectly!
