So I couldn’t resist the Iconic Wrap when I saw it on “We Made Too Much” sale in my local Lulu store. I’ve read other reviews commenting about the size and fit of this wrap on their website, and thought I’d do a review for you guys as well.
Beautiful looking, versatile piece. I am really happy this sweater went on sale! Although I do get hot at times (indoors) when wearing it over my head–as opposed to just with my arms in the sleeves–it’s a comfortable, pretty, and useful sweater. Worth the original price? Probably not, for me. But on sale it was definitely worth it.
I am hesitant buying sweaters or anything over the head or heavy, since I actually sweat more than a normal human being should and usually can’t wear such things. But given how open and loose fitting this wrap was (and pretty), I wanted to give it a shot. I am really happy I did. I love how comfy this wrap is! And the thumbholes are a plus; they look cute, but aren’t super obvious. You also can not use the thumbholes without having to fold over the sleeve in any way.
The Boolux fabric was very easily wrinkled, and it does come with some specific washing + care instructions (which I am horrible with special instructions, ’cause I’m lazy).
But it looked super baggy in the 6 in the other (right-side up) position, so I bought the 4. I am really happy I did, because the 6 definitely would have been too big. The wrap stretches a bit as you wear it, and I believe you get more comfortable, and learn how to best and more easily adjust it once you start wearing it.
