Local Shops

Here’s a list of local shops we recommend for shopping for fetish wear:

Dare To Wear

Dare To Wear

Dare To Wear

Address: 1028 Granville Street, Vancouver, BC, V6Z 1L5
Phone: (604) 801-5482
Website: www.dare-to-wear.com
Facebook: Visit Facebook Page

Although their line of products is comprised mainly of kinky clubwear (mini dresses, skirts, halter tops etc.), lingerie (teddies, corsets, stockings etc.) and swimwear, Dare To Wear also stocks an impressive selection of sexy shoes, dazzling jewelry and other fun items such as fishnet gloves, bras, little black dresses, nine-inch platform heels, pants, bikinis, fur jackets, this store has it all! Dare To Wear is seen as a store that specializes in stripper outfits and “bedroom outfits”…most of which are perfect for Sin City, if you dare, but the outfit options certainly don’t stop there. It’s more than likely that you’re going to have to make a few laps of the small shop in order to take it all in. Don’t be shy, the friendly staff have seen it all.

It’s also worth noting that during Halloween they are one of THE places to shop for great, affordable costumes that come complete with all the naughtiest accessories. Many of the costumes such as “slutty schoolgirl” or “hot cop” come in pre-packaged, one-size-fits-all packages. They are okay as an easy option, but you’re better off looking around for other non-costume-package outfits that are hanging on the racks.

What all this means is that whether you’re going shopping for Sin, or for a hot tub party, or are planning a wild night out or an adventurous one in…they’ll always have something exciting for you. Feeling too intimidated to take a look? Not to worry, the staff is extremely non-judgmental and will typically smile, ask you if you need help, and go back to talking amongst themselves. Take a friend, boy or girlfriend, or co-worker and explore the racks of scandalous outfits!

One of the most successful and influential GLBT bookstores in North America, Little Sister’s has been a fixture of Davie Village since 1983. It functions as a de facto LGBT community resource center and meeting place in Vancouver, as well as stocking an extensive selection of gay and lesbian literature and periodicals, sex toys and vibrators, condoms and lube, porn and erotica, Pride items (rainbow flags, jewelry, cards), underwear, T-shirts, and kinky club wear. The store is staffed by a friendly, helpful team of women and men, and it’s a nicely laid-out, well-lighted, and centrally located spot.

As pleasant as the physical store is, Little Sister’s has remained successful in part because of its success as an online store. The company actually runs four different sites: MyToyStore.ca is your one-stop for women’s and men’s adult toys, gear, and the like, while ExplicitBooks.com carries erotica, porn, sex-ed lit, and other useful material. Visit GLBTPrideStore.com. There’s also a more general site, LittleSisters.ca, that provides history on the shop and, most interestingly, information about the store’s important and brave efforts to fight censorship in the 1980s – it’s a battle that continues to this day.

Ultra Love

Address: 1151 Davie Street, Vancouver, BC, V6E 1N2
Phone: (604) 687-2337
Website:
www.ultralove.ca
Facebook: Visit Facebook Page
Email: retail@ultralove.ca

Ultra Love opened its doors for business in December of 1972 and was the first adult toy store in Vancouver and one of the first in Canada. They grew from a small retail store to one of the largest wholesaler Distributors in Canada. Today, with nearly 40 years of experience and growth in the adult toy industry, as an online retailer, Ultra Love continues to provide their customers with the best selection from the world of romance and adult play products.

As a retail store, Ultra Love is surprisingly good! Its proximity to other lower end sex stores may give the impression of a lower grade adult store, but don’t be fooled! It’s not and it has an excellent selection of fetish wear outfits, of course for women, but surprisingly, especially for men! Love’s Touch is just a few blocks away, but their selection for guys can be small. Priape is just across the street but tends to have high end and more involved outfits in latex and leather, which are amazing but can be out of the budget if you’re looking for purchases easier on the wallet. For casual fet-wear shopping, you’ll often find what you need at Ultra Love, be it naughty custom boxer-style briefs, boas, mid-priced corsets, fishnet tops and bottoms of many different styles, sequined booty shorts, and more!
