Look at our shop online catalogue at www.shopwildside.com to see the full range of offerrings.
When we first started in 1987 as a place for crossdressers, things
were different. No one had come out of the closet as a trans person. I was fresh out of theater school and could make men look like women with makeup. It was a rarity
to see acrossdresser in Toronto
out in public. Nowadays many men have wives who
accept their female persona and in our boutique we have lots of wonderful
visitors, both male and female. We also have the novice and we encourage
you to come to visit and be accepted for who you are. Please don't be shy.
You can browse our store online in total comfort at home, but to be fair try to get your shopping list together before you arrive. There is only so much time I can devote to each person and things will be much easier if you know what you want before you get here. We have a large online business and we also serve the television and film industry with our dedicated boutique and full stock AVAILABLE HERE . Look online and when you know what you want come on down and we'll help you get the right size and colour.
At Take a Walk On The Wildside, when you come to us with

silicone breastforms that look and feel real.
Visitors to the Wildside boutique range from the general public to the friends of the inexperienced novice, to the novice herself. Sometimes our visitors have never seen another transgendered person. Once in a while we meet the experienced person who has completely transformed.
