That said, Calvin has some good sales, which is why I'm bothering to mention it. Sale items often go for even 70% off, and considering the styling and construction of each garment (always very good), you can end up getting a great deal.
The Bloor St. location WAS their flagship Canadian store, but recently moved a couple doors down from its original location, so I don't think they can continue making that claim. As a result of the move, it's sleek and tends to have nice displays and very good service. They offer free bra fittings (though that's not something I partake of because I'm not crazy about letting strange women measure my busooms, as my granny would say). The store also offers green bags (they're actually white) that are reusable, which is a nice nod toward environmentalism.
Favorite items for me include the bathing suits and the pjs. For one thing, I'm much more willing to buy an expensive bathing suit than I am to shell out for underoos. For another, my comfiest pjs EVER came from Calvin and I'm willing to wait for lightning to strike twice.
All that said, I have one very important insider tip for you. If you're a penny pincher like I am, you'll appreciate it: Winners.
Winners (which happens to be just a few doors down from Calvin, to the East) also carries Calvin products and sells them at a massive discount. This is NOT remainder or left over stuff, it's new. So if you look closely, you should be able to find Calvin bras for sale at Winners in the $14 range, when they've still hawking the same style for $50+ at Calvin proper.
Sure, Winners doesn't have everything and you might have to dig, but if you want Calvin products for less, I suggest you head in to the main location, try on, take advantage of the services, but pop down to Winners to check the prices before you actually buy. You can save a lot of dough. Enough for a new bathing suit or pair of pjs, even.
