FexEx guy just dropped off my Cadet WAFS CRB! Wasn't sure about the print when I opened it (due to the muted soot, I'm more of a bold, black lover) buuuut I put it on and love it! So adorable, can't wait to incorporate it into my wardrobe.
LLA do you know what time the wmtm upload will be? Last week I didn't see it til 7 am cst...thanks!
I thought this wrap was great until I saw the back. It totally ruined it for me :(
Oh that sweater makes everyone look so sloppy or wide from the back. Too bad because the front is really cute.
OT heads up: Athleta on Zulily.
I ordered the Transformation Wrap in grey and I'm interested to see how it looks in person. I think I only like the look of it when it's left long or only slightly pulled up. For the price, I have to love it to keep it. I have read that this made it to WMTM before but I have a hard time snagging anything in my size (6 or 8) on sale.
Did the US get the Cadet Find Your Flow crops online and are they already sold out?Thanks!

Help! Has anyone seen the White Transformation Wrap in person? Is it stark white or cream, Heathered or plain? Thank you!
I would like to have a Cadet blue TW. I think cinching it all the way up the back looks hideous! Sometimes it's tied where the strings appear to be hanging from your butt. I can't pull the trigger on this one ---especially not at that price
Anyone have fit reviews on the transformation wrap? I ordered them in size 6, but I'm wondering if I should have sized down to a 4? 5'7", wear a 6 in lulu tanks and a 4 or 6 in WUC.
Transformation Wrap seems like good idea and I'm sure it is super comfy, but the back looks fussy and a little off trend. I'd probably wear it if I had one in my closet, but def not at the top of my list.
I don't understand the love for these wraps...the front is nice but that cinch up thing in the back....it's not flattering at all???
My cadet WAFS CRB arrived today. It's a thinner Luon Light (reminiscent of my plum and inkwell hyperstripe ones), but the pattern is beautiful. It's definitely not as thick as the new Bali Breeze CRB, but I am still going to keep it. It was "designed in Vancouver, made in China." The colors are so pretty. I am not disappointed at all. It goes with so much stuff I already have. The 4 fit me. Old CRB's I use to be a 6 (before Luon Light).
I don't understand the appeal of these transformation wraps at all. They do look very comfortable, but very sack-like and unflattering. At that price, I would have to love it. Plus, that Boolux fabric (I assume that's what it is) pills like crazy.
Thanks for the info, anon 1:18! One more question though - what is the fabric content? Inquiring minds want to know (or at least my inquiring mind)Thanks!
@anon 1:18 - thanks for the info on the luon light for the cadet CRB - this means mine is going back - i don't like the thinner CRBs - they just feel sort of cheap to me. the color looks amazing though!
Sharing much of the same sentiments about the TW wrap. Love the front and un-cinched look. Do the sweaters/knits hold up well between washes? I'm afraid to pull trigger on novelty items like this.
Anon@1:34, it is 92% nylon, 8% Lycra spandex. I don't know what my hyperstripe ones are since the tags are long gone.
I thought it was cream or heathered white--def not a stark white.
I love the front but hate the back! BlechIt's so pretty from the front!
I purchased one today as well. I surprisingly left the store with the beach scape crb also. I had seen this online and thought, meh! But on a whim I tried it on and it is beautiful--and love the material. The Bali breeze 105 singlet was another purchase today. I didn't need it as I already have 5 singlets, but this color was so pretty I couldn't leave without it!
Transformation Wrap is an easy pass for me. Agree it looks OK uncinched but a disaster when cinched.
It is the same colour as the recently released chai time sweater. Its more of an off white
thanks for the fiber info - that's really helpful. I wish lulu would put this info on the web, but I guess it's not very practical when the blends are so variable. Happy to see the cadet WAFS CRB is the same recipe as my recent bali breeze purchase - I returned a wee stripe CRB from the same order b/c I didn't like its polyester content.
I have the same question as anon @12:09: Did the US get the Cadet Find Your Flow crops online and are they already sold out?I keep seeing them in product photos from stores, but I have no time to trek to a store! TIA.
I don't live near a store but I see online there is a The Mat in Lullaby. What are your thoughts on that color? Are there any new colors in stores or coming in the future? I'm getting tired of only seeing black and pink. I did like the chakra colors when they came out but I didn't like the fact that they all had sayings on the top (I know that was the point but still.)
the wrap is not my thing. the material it's made from seems really cheap, and the back is hideous. I wonder why people go crazy over these wraps, they are not flattering at all.8:29 The mat in the lullaby color is really pretty, a purple with a bit of blue. The only thing about the light colored mats is that if you sweat they stain.M
I'm kinda in the same boat, I'm a tts 6 in everything but sized down and got a 4. Now I'm wondering if I should have stayed tts.
Anon @8:03pm: I think the Cadet Find Your Flow Crops were in the last week's upload and there were sold out within a day. It sure is pretty paired with Cadet WAFS CRB.Anon @8:29pm: Have you tried Manduka mats? I have both the Pro (for home use) and Prolite (for class). I highly recommend them. I haven't tried the LLL mats, but all my instructors highly recommend Manduka mats. Just my 2cents.
Absolutely no offense to all who love the wrap, but I think that it is very unflattering from the back. The front view is beautiful. When the back isn't tied, it looks like it has a tail and when it is tied up, it looks like bat wings and gives an unflattering big but silhouette. Uh.. Easy pass.
I just got my grey transformation wrap delivered today and I love it. It looks better in real life than in the photos. I think the back is unique....it's not really supposed to be "sexy" flattering. I got my wafs crb and I'm glad I got a 6 instead of my usual 8. Beautiful!
Jiji:I have the Manduka pro and it is still ,after years of use, too slippery for a hot class. I don't like using a towel because it just feels weird to me and keeps bunching. I have a Lulu The Mat in pink (actually it's my daughter's and that's why I need another one in another color) and it is SO much better for a hot practice. It will stay sticky and you never need a towel. My yoga instructor has Manduka, Jade etc, and she switched over to Lulu when she saw mine two years ago and she has only used The Mat since. You should try it.
I bought transformation wrap in silver, and I love it, so cute and special at the back. It is also form fitting, making my ass look good.
