Down the street a neighbor teaches dance. The Divine Miss M would love to participate but it means giving up some of the other activities, and she isn’t ready to commit. She is still active and finding athletic wear than fits her skinny frame and is still modest can be a challenge. We found the solution with ivivva athletica, the makers of apparel for active girls from dancers, gymnasts and athletes and even, as The Divine Miss M showed, for talent shows.
I want my children to be trendy, but still comfortable and safe. With ivivva atheltica I know that these values hold true. They produce quality products made from technical fabrics. The ensure their products meet or exceed the standards of international children’s safety regulations and industry standards through product testing.
When the ivivva atheltica arrived, The Divine Miss M was stoked. It was the perfect outfit for the upcoming talent show. She put on the Activity Racer top. It took her a few minutes to adjust to the luon fabric. It has a cotton feel but it’s stretchy, designed to move with her. The first thing she said was, “Wow! This is tight!” We talked about how it was clothing designed to allow her to be active and letting her body move without the burden of clothing.
She did some stretches and thought the shirt would be perfect for her jump-rope talent.
Then she pulled on the Stretch It Up Crop *siu pants. These pants are made of the same luon fabric so they’re stretchy and have the cotton-feel. The Divine Miss M was still questioning the snug fit but was willing to give it a go.
We went outside and she did some jump roping and commented that she liked that her clothing didn’t “wave around”. She also like how the waistband was smooth and didn’t dig into her “sensitive belly”.
When she took the pants off she noticed the hidden pocket to keep money, ID or even keys. It’s in the waistband.
The ivivva atheletica became part of her practice routine. Every day after school she came home and put on her “outfit” and jumped rope. She always gushed about their comfort.
Then a few days before the talent show audition, she was watching kiddos on the playground jump rope and decided that there were 1.) A lot of people who could jump rope and 2.) Some of them were really good. So, she went in search of a new talent.
She auditioned, in her ivivva athletica “jump rope” outfit, singing Katy Perry’s Firework.
Due to the teachers spelling her name incorrectly and listing her grade level as fourth rather than second, she didn’t realize she had made the talent show line up. She was a trooper, but supported her brother, who did make it (based on his name being spelled correctly and his grade level being correct).
She still loves her ivivva athletica outfit. She has discovered it’s perfect for riding bike because it doesn’t require she rubber band her pant legs, and her thighs don’t get sunburned. She loves the outfit for playing “hose-head” where you run around and try and keep a long, knitted stocking cap on while someone tries to take it from your head. She gives credit to the outfit saying, ‘It makes me slippery and my shirt isn’t flapping so they can’t grab me!”
She has worn this outfit for about three weeks, everyday and I have washed it at least twice a week. It still looks good as new and still gives her comfort. There are no seams to gouge or give her the “itchies”. They haven’t changed sizes, ivivva clothes are pre-shrunk by the way, so if they fit in the store, they’ll fit after they come out of the dryer. I love that. Another great feature offered from ivivva is if you take your ivivva pants or crops to any ivivva or lululemon store, they’ll hem them for you at no cost.
ivivva atheletica makes apparel any parent will feel comfortable putting their kiddo in for their active play and activities. They are extremely high quality and have been put to the test of hard kid play, coming out looking just like we received them. That is awesome!
