Fit Review! Transformation Wrap! Dark Adobe

December 18, 2018



I know right now everyone is talking about the Plush Scuba Hoodie and Light as Warmth Scuba, but I think the Transformation Wrap is a much more interesting and unique piece that Lululemon has available right now. Sure it's not as warm or as cozy, but I think this wrap is much more likely to make some heads turn. 

For reference I'm 4 feet 11 and typically wear a size 4 in fitted Lululemon tops but for wraps like this I tend to size down.


This wrap is soooo soft and not itchy at all. This is made of Boolux fabric, which is a blend of cashmere, Tencel and rayon. Tencel fabric is what gives this wrap a silk like feel. It's definitely oversized and quite long if not cinched in the back. I can tell you that I would never wear this wrap uncinched. It is very unflattering that way. This wrap does have side pockets which is nice, but they are not very functional. At least it's not meant for your phone. You could put some tissues in there or something, but anything that has substantial weight will weigh it down. 

Uncinched - Is this even a word?

So much better.

Let's talk about the length. It is long. But even though I'm only 4 feet 11, I think because it hits right above the knee, I can pull it off. The front is also shorter than the back, which helps too. I do not feel like the wrap is overwhelming on my petite frame. The sleeves are long as to be expected, but it looks like it's supposed to be bunched up. I think it works! 

Yay for pockets!


I love the look of the back when cinched up and tied. There's something so unique and beautiful about the way it drapes. I also love the color dark adobe. It is a deep saturated berry plum. It is seriously my favorite color right now since it matches the color of my hair! 


 
One more shot of the back again.

 The other thing is this wrap is reversible. It is definitely different for the dark adobe color. The sleeves are two toned which gives it a more casual, dress down look. It would be great with jeans and tee.


Kind of rock and roll?


Overall I think this is a piece that can easily transition from the office to weekend. It can go with jeans or dress pants easily. The one downside is the delicate nature of the fabric. I already see one snag at the bottom hem. That does worry me a little bit considering how steep the price is. I'm tempted to keep it. Leaning towards yes as a Christmas treat for myself. What do you think of this wrap?

  1. The wrap looks super cozy and comfy. It seems like a piece that makes any outfit look put together! Love the cinched back too. I say if you love it you should keep it! Not helpful lol.

  2. I think it looks good on you when cinched. Uncinched is not the way to go, agree with you on that. I like the way you've dressed it up. There's a pic on the website of the model wearing it with sweatpants and that whole outfit looks sloppy to me. You've made it look classy.

    1. Aw thank you so much! Before I keep a purchase I try and see what kind of outfits I can wear it with. I def would not wear this with sweatpants!

  3. I love the material which feels luxurious and it’s thicker than I thought. The Silver Drop color is so pretty and goes with all my outfit. Body length is okay to me (I’m 5’3”) cos you can cinch the back, but the sleeves are way too long in my opinion. It’s not a deal breaker though, and what makes me think twice is how delicate the material is, and some people complained about pilling.

    I must say the wrap looks really nice on you, and Dark Adobe is a lovely saturated color. I somehow feel that the wrap looks weird when cinched but then it looks great on you! Definitely keep it if you like it cos they are selling out.

    1. Will you be returning yours? I also am worried about the pilling. That would be a shame. It's such a beautiful wrap.

  4. Love the cinched look on you, but I am hesitant because my LuLu Boolux sweaters have not "aged" well. They pill very easily. I may get it if it makes to WMTM.

  5. I like the dark adobe be too. Color looks great on you. Bonus points that it matches your hair! I’m not a fan of the cinched look in the back. Looks like a wad of material just hanging. Like it was accidentally stuck to your pants. Sorry. I’m also not a fan of boolux. I have 2 lulu sweaters made out of boolux and they pilled and did not hold its shape.

    1. I still like the drape but knowing it pills fast made me return it last night. Thank you! I may still pick it up if I see it on WMTM, but now I know it's definitely not worth full price.

  6. Looks like Boolux pills easily. For the price of this wrap I’m expecting better quality! It’s a shame cos the material is silky soft and the drape is beautiful.

    Am seriously thinking about returning it ...

    1. Sherry's comment convinced me to return it. It is beautiful, but afraid not at full price.

    2. That’s exactly how I feel, Leslie.
