ivivva invited our Kidzworld style editor to visit their new showroom that just opened on New York City’s Upper West Side and check out their latest styles in person. 11 year-old Lexie was on hand to try on some of their most popular items and tell us what she thought. Her overall impression: “I love that they have dance and workout clothes that look stylish and feel AH-MAZING!”

Our style editor’s impression: “For active girls who need clothes that move, stretch and breathe, head to their studio or go online to ivivva.com and check out all their great styles -- and their accessories are SO hot!”

Dance Everywhere Tank

Lexie immediately loved the fit and feel of the soft, stretchy fabric and the “perfectly purple” color ivivva’s team chose for her. “I wish I could wear this everywhere,” was Lexie’s first comment. Her favorite feature is the back connector piece which easily opens and closes to convert the tank back to a racerback. She connected the back and tried out a few yoga poses and was very impressed. “I usually don’t wear tanks because I’m worried they’ll slip, but with the back connected, I don’t feel self-conscious at all.”

Rhythmic Crop

The cropped leggings with a patterned banded waistband were also a big hit with our tween yoga and workout enthusiast. While her first reaction to the patterned waistband was uncertain (“I usually like plain colors,” she said), when she tried it on with the top, she agreed it was the perfect subtle pop of color that was only barely visible under the tank. After a few cartwheels, backbends and a handstand, Lexie was hooked on these pants. “What other colors does it come in?” she asked. “I want them all.” When asked her favorite feature, she was torn between the cotton-like feel, comfortable stretch, and mini hidden pocket in the waistband. Her mom loved the fact that the length of the pants is adjustable. There are 3 “bartacks” along the leg of the pants where you can pick a length and take it to any lululemon shop to be hemmed or let down as needed. “Clothes that grow with my growing daughter are a great investment!” said her mom.

Drill Sport Top

The cropped tank was another big hit with Lexie, who was feeling self-conscious about starting middle school in the fall, specifically changing in the locker room for gym class. “It’s also really good for hot days when I need coverage under my shirt but it’s too hot for a full tank,” she discovered. The ivivva reps told us many girls wear the sport top over cropped pants with or without a top over it for dance class or workouts. Versatile, comfortable and discreet, it’s a great alternative to a training bra for sports-minded girls.

Studio Dance Headband

The clear favorite in the accessories category is the Studio Dance Headband. Adjustable and lined with a no-slip grip, this headband earned top marks from Lexie, her mom and our style editor. All the accessories on the showroom were created with just as much thought to fit, comfort and style, with sports water bottles, dance bags with multiple pockets and straps that are just the right length, and, just like in it's adult store counterpart, lululemon, the shopping bag is a reusable tote great for snacks, a change of clothes or a book for when you're waiting in the wings.
