That long sleeve will be mine! Anyone know if it fits tts??
Wow. That Sheeriously Tee is sheeriously awful.
I know. The belly area should be the sheer part.
Is that a Split Pea Cool Racerback in the Top Pic of the Black Swan Universal Wrap?
The photos with the mountains in the back are really beautiful. Is that in the US or Canada?
Has anyone tried the universal wrap in store? Is it TTS or size down?
Anyone know the price point of the Universal Wrap? My store didn't have it yet and I heard it sold out online in a few hours but I'm not sure that's true
I picked up the wraps in black and heathered swan today. They're thin (watch for snags!!!) but super cozy and comfortable. I got my tts for tops (4) but could have easily sized down. They are definitely roomy. I wish they were a little thicker, especially for the price, but I'm loving them so far. The shape is flattering.Other than the white they are flying off shelves too, at least here (western Canada). According to staff they were put out this morning, and there were only a few 4s and 10s and 2s, a 4 and an 8 in black swan. So if you want try try one on in person, I'd make a point of it.-anonymous me
i have a universal wrap from a few years ago. I found it to be tts. i take a 6 in power y and CRB and an 8 in all jackets. I have it in an 8 so that i can layer under it. i wear it most days in the winter. iTs my go - to piece! LOVE IT!
Anon 3.31am - the mountain shots are from the Banff store. Canada.-anonymous me
I tried, and bought, the Universal Wrap yesterday. First let me say it's gorgeous! I missed out on the last two wraps and kind of regretted it, especially the Iconic wrap. Generally with Lululemon tops I am a 4. I am 5'3 and 105 lbs. With this wrap I was definitely a 2 because it's stretchy and because it would overwhelm me otherwise. It was so hard to choose the color - I bought the light one (forget the name) but the black was a close second. It is amazingly soft, it feels like Cashmere. I hope it doesn't snag or pull because it feels a bit delicate. Also, bought the sea check speeds! The color is just beautiful!! It will go with literally every color. I take a 4 in speeds and that;s what I bought.
@ANON 3:52 AM I bought the Universal wrap in Black Swan, it's TTS. I tried on a Size 2 and 4, not much difference except longer sleeves. I got the size 2.
Nothing appeals to me. The only thing in these photos I long for is to be in Banff. I will be, in September!
@ 3:31 AM, that's Banff, Alberta.
I tried on (and bought!) the Universal Wrap today. I think it's a size down, I bought the 6 instead of the 8. I normally wear an 8 or 10 in tops (8's in hoodies) and the 6 fit great. In comparison, I couldn't even buy the last wrap (in July) due to the crazy tight arms.My only consideration would be if someone has very wide shoulders. Then you might want to consider your normal size if you want the seams to lay/fit perfectly.
Loving the tuck LS but can't justify spending $78 on it... Maybe I'll luck out and it'll go on WMTM
I actually bought the new Universal Wrap and wound up returning because when I got it home I could see the quality was very poor with the stitching and sheerness. Will snag very easily and @ $118. I expect more from LLL
I tried on the Universal Wrap and I LOVE it. I am petite but the flowy parts in the front don't overwhelm me. I loved it in the black swan colour but really, all my clothes are black so I purchased the darker one. I especially love how it looks draped over one shoulder. The fit was my TTS 4 and the arms were fitted but not tight.I also tried on the Tuck and Flow LS, and while I love the fabric, it just didn't work for me. It looked nice from the front but did not drape over my chest in the best way because it showed every line of what I had on underneath. The back was just a mess with awkward pulling and bunching everywhere. I tried in the 4 (I wear a 4 in all Lulu tops) and the 6 (I wear a 6 in all the bras and some tanks). Too bad because the plum colour was gorgeous and the fabric felt lovely.On the same trip I also picked up a white devotion tee (sized down to a 2, which never happens) and Fast Track shorts (sized up to a 6, wtf is up with the sizing Lulu?) which were both on MD. My wallet hurts. Here's hoping the rest of the fall line is lousy.
I'm pretty sure it did not get uploaded to the US side this week unless it sold faster than the sea check speeds did. When I made my order Monday night/Tuesday morning, the universal wrap wasn't there, but every size in the speeds was, so I mustve checked right after the upload.
OT I am lookjng to buy a pair of the cool breeze quilt speed shorts in a size 6. We did not get them here in Canada and they are rediculously priced on eBay. If anyone has a pair they'd like to sell. Please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org
I don't find the wrap interesting in any way. I am petite,and don't like bulky clothes like that. the material also seems cheap.M
I just ordered the Plum L/S shirt.. I know it's expensive but it looks like such a great top for Fall and very universal (could be worn for training or casual weekend top) :)
I bought the heathered white universal wrap today after trying on in store. The fabric is so soft and cozy, and the fit is flattering. I sized down from my usual 8 in all lulu stuff (muscular 5'7" 150 lbs) to a 4. It is a generous fit and very stretchy. However, I may be returning it... Buyers guilt for purchasing something that looks and feels so thin and delicately (cheaply?) made for $118 + tax. With 2 little kids and a dog I fear it will snag and pull first time worn... :(
I tried on the universal wrap, the tuck and flow long sleeve, and the arms tank. I am 5'1, 100lbs, and a 32B. I was not impressed with the universal wrap. The material was soft however it was not anywhere near feeling like there was any cashmere in it. It's super thin and the sleeves are too long. The ribbing on the sleeves definitely takes care of the previous complaints about the sleeves being too tight, however I think it cheapens the look of the wrap. It fits true to size I guess, although its a wrap so not really sure if this applies.The tuck and flow is too big for my small build in a 4. I usually wear a 2 in tops however sometimes a 4 fits (swiftlys). Figured this one would be ok since I wod be layering most likely, but nope. The body was too baggy and It was extremely long. I don't have enough chest to shorten the tank as much. The atma tank is too long-I have a long torso too. Fits TTS. Also comes in a raspberry glow light version in stores. I ended up buying parfait pink, blue moon, blue moon hyper stripe and plum hyperstripe CRBs, WU luxtreme, a pair of sea check shorts for a friend, and a new The Mat. Ordered the 105f singlet and chai time pullover online - cant wait til it arrives. Kinda sucks that delivery takes an entire week to arrive! By the time they come, I'm already over the excitement of those items and have already ordered the next batch.
