Iconic Sweater Wrap
everyone needs this now
Ok. I can only buy Lulu online and I hate that I can't get this in more colors. I love this sweater. I think I need to buy another because I will wear this top out. It rocks into my Lulu wardrobe with ease. I'm a busy Mommy and I can throw this on and look like a yoga star! Love the fit.

Ok, I need feedback ASAP. Did you find the fabric softened after washing? I ordered the green online (true to size). Wore it around the house for 5 mins yesterday but, feeling like it might be picky. I am sensitive, can't weR wool. Is it as soft as some people have said. It's insanely expensive so, if it's not going to soften, I'll return it. Also, why doesn't Lulu ever make enough in neutral colours to keep up with demand? I have so many items in a colour that I would also buy in black or grey if they weren't always sold out. I'm also patiently waiting for them to rectify the issues with studio crops. C'mon lulu, summer's coming!

Will not last
Beautiful piece. Bought it last fall. Wore it a few times. Hand washed it, hanged dry. It is pilling under arms and a seam on the shoulder opened. Way too expansive for a flea market quality product!

I'm loving the sweater wrap so far. Very soft and comfortable material. I'm glad there is a video, because ordering this on line, I would have no idea of the versatility of this wrap. Also, pay attention to the top and bottom. I had unknowinly put it on upside down at first. It looked awful with no shape, and I was ready to return it. I ordered a size 6. I'm 5'4, 117 lbs and usually a size 4 or 6 in lulu jackets. I have broad shoulders which is why I sized up according to previous reviews stating that it's snug in the arm/shoulder area. The size 6 fits me fine, but I wish I would have ordered both a size 4 and 6 to compare. The fabric gives so I think I would have been good with a size 4. I agree with more recent reviews that it if you size up too much, it can look sloppy. I wish I could order the gray one, but they are sold out in my size. I definitely see this as a go to piece in my wardrobe. Worth the money.

Not What I expected
First of all I really don't like the material this wrap is made out of. It is a contraption to figure out and really not worth the $128 price tag. I really wanted to love this item, but sadly it will be returned.

I absolutely love this sweater! I only wear it one way, but it's totally worth it! Lululemon, please get more sizes and colors! I have black and would absolutely love a blue cadet or a new color in this in size 4 or 6!

Cute but can be sloppy
Love this wrap for its versatility, however be aware that upsizing can make it look really sloppy.

5 Sweaters in 1
I bought this grey in store not even knowing it could be worn 5 ways. When I got home I put it on again..and it looked different. So onto the Lulu site I went and was sooo happy to find out that yes it can be worn differently.
It's a bit on the pricey side, but when you factor in the different looks, and how amazingly soft and comfortable it is, I think it's a good investment.
I will be going back for the black one.

My fave purchase from Lulu, ever.
Because of many reviews bellyaching about the sleeves being tight, I decided to order the biggest size of this sweater. There was no need for that? but I loved the sweater so much I ordered the grey in addition to the blue one. I had no issues and find no real difference between the 10 and the 12 when it comes to the arms. I see no real difference with the sizing of the 10 and the 12 though, so the sizing inconsistency is kind of right. Yes, the price is steep, but you get what you pay for, a warm versatile piece that could be dressed up with some accessories and dressed down with jeans. With all pieces that are a knit material, you will see a bit of pilling if you put your arms down in the armpits - its inevitable but not severe. I've not washed either sweater yet, I have to admit i'm scared, but its definitely time to go out and get some woolite and wash these on gentle, separately and hang to dry.

Wear it all the time
I agree that this sweater was hard to figure out - but only at first, and I did not need a video to do so, just some patience. There are two ways to wear it and I have a favorite of the two. The sleeves are tight on me and you can not really roll up your sleeves. I am small busted and normally get a 6, I was a bit cautious bc my arms/shoulders are bit on the non-girly side - I ordered an 8. The arms are okay. I have worn this SEVERAL times and have not noticed pilling as others have found. I can say hands down - for me - this is my favorite Lulu piece. Very pricey so I will wear the heck out it to get my money's worth.
