My husband has been commuting along the Cambie corridor for over a year and has seen the area develop, buildings reach the sky, and new shops open their doors. Last July CHANGE moved in, (between Starbucks and Save-On-Foods) and he was quick to tell me about this European lingerie boutique. For Christmas he treated me to a gift certificate so that I could pop in, since he certainly encourages purchases of this nature.

I walked into CHANGE and within a few minutes the proprietor, Yvonne, was giving me a fitting and loading me up with armfuls of lacy, seamless, lifted, soft, contouring styles of bras (as that particular garment was the purpose my mission today). I’ve had fittings before at Victoria’s Secret but I actually learned a lot more from Yvonne regarding straps, tightness, and the placement of the underwire on a garment that actually fits well.

Another thing I noticed was that the sizes go all the way up to “J”, which is great. Not that I need a “J” by any means but for a woman whose size (in certain styles) is not carried at other shops or boutiques, it was great to see the selection.

CHANGE is currently having a sale and most of the store is 25% to 50% off (I seriously almost purchased an amazing bra that was 50% off $98 from the ‘charade‘ collection). The styles are classy, colourful, and I’m actually pretty excited about their swimwear collection that is being moved in for Spring 2009.

If you have the chance, check out CHANGE of Scandinavia on Cambie (support businesses along the Canada Line!) or at one of their other Lower Mainland locations.

    Let me know next time you go because I am so there with you.

    Is this what you mean by “support” business on Cambie?

    You often put pics of yourself at places, events, or enjoying various tastings and demos… maybe just a little disappointed not to see one here ;p … oh c’mon, you knew someone was going to say that. Yup. It was me.

    I’ve never been a fan of AV’s coaching style. Sounds like hindsight bandwagon griping but I really feel he’s not the type of coach that wins championships. his hard ass style only gets so far, and my personal bias is that he screwed up Naslund’s last few seasons here. I’m so sick of dump ins.

    I have to agree with everything brady said otherwise though, we (vancouver canucks fans) SUCK. Maybe even more than Leaf fans.

    wow, did I just say that?

    They carry up to size J? (Not that I need that – I could probably fit my entire body in a size J cup, but I have a friend who is size G (well, she’s probably a J now as she just had a baby) who has to get her bras made specially, as she can never find size G in stores. Next time she visits, I’ll have to bring her to CHANGE!
