Perfect layer for all seasons
I have the grey one from last time they released the sweater version of the iconic wrap. It has worn very well. No pilling at all. I love it! It is extremely versatile and I love the fact that I can wear it multiple ways. I got the blue and the white this time around. I told myself after having the first one for a while that if it ever came out again I would buy multiple colours. I am a 4/6 in lulu tops - 6 in crb and 4 in most all other tops. I got this one in a 6. It drapes beautifully and isn't too tight in the arms but the arms are fitted. I found the 4 to be a bit restricting in the shoulder area as well as I like the length of the 6 better especially when worn upside down. Mine is nowhere as long as the white one pictured - just a nice bum covering length. The knit is lightweight and a bit silky. I always receive many compliments on these sweaters every time I wear them. I would highly recommend this wrap. You won't be disappointed!

You Need This
I wear this wrap absolutely everywhere. I bought it as an impulse buy when I was shopping for some new sports bras before a training trip in the Adirondacks and it was seriously the best decision I've ever made. I wear it to and from yoga, great to throw on after practice, just relaxing around the house, out to dinner, etc. It looks great with leggings and jeans, even shorts. I do not take it off. Everyone needs one of these, totally worth splurging!!

IN LOVE !! =)
Love everything about this sweater!! I bought the grey and it goes with so much! I have worn it both ways and it's super cute either way! I get a lot of compliments! The knit is very soft and does relax out a bit in the arms, so I'm glad I followed the reviews and went down one size. I'm usually an 8 in tops and got a 6 in this. It's perfect for cool mornings and evenings, I'll get a lot of use out of for sure. It'll definitely be coming to Europe with me this summer!!
If I have one minor issue, the knit seems to snag easily, after the first day of wear I noticed a couple threads sticking out already, so just be careful when wearing.
I want more colors!!

Nice but not for me
I've tried on all three colors of these (denim blue, black, and the light beige) in my usual size 10. Sizing seemed consistent between colors. The knit is a nice summer-weight, a bit see-through so that the wrap is breathable. The design uses the arm area to provide structure to the drapey silhouette. Although I like the versatility of the design, this one was not for me. I found the armholes a little constricting--it may stretch out over time as the other reviewers have said--but I wanted to love it off the rack.
The sweater comes with a ribbon attachment inside which makes the wrap hanger-friendly. Fair warning, the ribbon sort of gets in the way when you try to put it on. I watched the online video to try the wrap on different ways. When the drapey fabric was mostly over the front, it added a little too much bulk to my waist area. It was flattering when worn with the drape higher up so that you can see my natural waist.
I think if you have slender shoulders and arms, you'll love this design. It's ballerina-pretty. For me, it was a little too complicated to make it work for my body type, and my arms/shoulders felt a little too constricted to be lulu-comfortable.

Very Pretty Lightweight Wrap
Great for summer. I ordered my normal 6 and like other reviewers said, it's a little tight in the shoulders. My experience with lulu fabrics like this, is that it will relax a little over time.
It's a little confusing when you first receive it. I wish it came with instructions on the different ways to wear it.
Overall, it's a beautiful piece that can be worn to yoga, for travel and even work.

I wasn't sure if I would like this style or if it would be too shapeless...but I ended up exchanging my 6 for a 4 and it's really cute. I like I will get a lot of use out of this. The arms are tight yes, but in my experience this type of fabric does relax so I'm not worried. I like that it can be worn different ways. Perfect for spring/summer/fall.

BEAUTIFUL HEATHERED BLUE DENIM, VERY VERSATILE!
I just received two of these in the Heathered Blue Denim today in sizes 10 & 12. I'm normally a 10 in Lulu tops because of my 36E bust size but I wasn't sure that would fit due to all the previous reviews saying the arms were so tight. Well, the 10 is perfect in every way! It actually minimizes my x-large chest due to the crossover style in front and fits perfectly everywhere else. The form-fitting sleeves (not tight as they don't bind anywhere) make me look smaller and give this gorgeous sweater a more tailored, professional look.
This sweater can honestly be worn anywhere; casually, to dinner, out with the girls or to the office. It is warm without being too heavy and soooooo soft! I would buy one in every colour if I could afford it! The blue denim colour is as versatile as your favourite jeans and will go with almost anything. The price is well worth it on this one.
The quality is excellent and the customer service at Lulu has come a long way since its early days. They will take back anything that doesn't perform for you, no time limit. Not sure why everyone thinks they can't return an item if the tags come off as that is not the case anymore. This sweater also comes with the tag PINNED on, so no worries there either way ;-)
Buy this, you won't regret it!

Love my iconic wrap!!
I originally bought the cashmere blend black version of this for a recent trip to Europe. It completely looks and wore like a very nice sweater. I loved the heavier weight for changing temps and weather typical of early Euro summers -it's a perfect fall transition piece and I wear it easily into winter here in Texas. I couldn't wait to get the gray summer weight one. I got it in today and it is just as fabulous as my black one! Lighter weight and a stretchier/more cotton like fabric but drapes beautifully. I'm typically a 4/6 in lulu tops and 6/8 in lulu bottoms and I definitely sized up in this wrap to an 8. Shoulders are definitely tight if you size down but the 8 fits me perfectly. Worn reversed - it is the perfect length to cover your bum while you are just in your tights (because lets finally face it - tights aren't pants ladies - cover your bum) and the short length is perfect with shorts, jeans or I even paired it with a few dresses and wore it as a bolero for an evening out! I hand wash it and line dry and it's held up great. Love love love this piece. Definitely one of my most versatile and most used sweaters! Make it in colors please!!

Super cute wrap, but the stitching came off after wearing the wrap twice!

I absolutely love the iconic wrap! If I had it in more colors I would wear one every day. Very flattering! Very comfortable! Can't get enough of it! I am always around a size 6-8 depending on the item. I got the wrap in an 8 and it is perfect, I have no problem with the arms being tight at all. LOVE LOVE LOVE. Hopefully buying some in different colors if they come out!
