Fit Review: Coast Wrap II

The Coast Wrap is back in a new version II!! Last years version was made of modal and this years version is cotton french terry. They've also added a couple of new buttons around the neck. I didn't buy last years Coast Wrap so I'm not 100% sure what buttons are new on this one other than the inside collar and possibly the lowest button. This is my regular size 10 and it felt comfortable, although I wish it was longer. I love the wrap in Heathered Alberta Lake but I didn't bite because I have the Turn Jacket in this exact color, and the design of the wrap itself didn't appeal to me in the light grey or dark grey.  It's so hard not to feel tempted by colors you love.

  2. Off topic, but just wanted to mention to those of you not aware yet, that the Hey Lululemon website will be retiring on May 16 :(

    1. What??? Really? man, Lululemon sure isn't a friend to digital media. Did they post that on Hey Lululemon?

    2. Yes, it was posted on Hey Lululemon today, Lulumum. Kind of a shock!

    3. Considering it seemed like a way for them to funnel negative feedback away from their other social media accounts without ever having to pay attention to it, maybe this is a good thing.

    4. No loss in my mind. Very few, if any, authentic, good ideas appear to have come out of HLLL. They would respond to a customer review by telling them to go put it on HLLL. Really, you want the customer to spend more time giving you feedback on a product when they already did so and it's right in front of you?

    5. It's the conversations with other like minded and fellow lulu lovers that I'll be missing most of all...

    6. and if you have anything slightly, remotely negative to say about anything..the products, customer service, returns, etc., you get attacked by the Lulu bullies. You know, the ones on the commune, drinking the Kool-Aid. It's not a real forum by any means. I just don't buy as much anymore.

    7. anon 7:07 PM - I totally disagree with what you just wrote, not true at all, a lot of the regular people on there are not like that at all. I have no idea where you're getting this from...

    8. excuse me, this is EXACTLY what I am talking about. You must be an "educator"
      Post an idea up there that you would like and I want to see how many shout downs you get from the bullies and "educators" saying NO, I don't want this. What's the point of allowing people to post an idea if they are going to get attacked? Get back on the commune, please.

    9. Sorry, but you really have no idea what you're talking about because you are definitely assuming things that are not even true. I've posted a ton of ideas (many as you mentioned in your first post that could be considered to be "slightly, remotely negative about anything" on the site and have never had any problems (I did receive generic replies from Lulu on there but I stand up for what I believe is true) and I've never been a 'Kool-Aid' drinker, I've always had a mind of my own and have no problems speaking it even if I'm the only one with that opinion. I have enjoyed many back and forth chats with others on the site, and wouldn't consider them to be bullies at all. But assume away and be negative all you like, that's your choice, and perhaps the reason you are seeing things the way you are...

  5. Looking good Cristina!!
    The wrap looks awesome on you, and the Alberta Lake color is beautiful! Finally a nice color in a jacket/wrap (and of course heathered black and white, boring)...the timing is off though, I bought the boolux wrap in last weeks upload, so that's enough this season!

    1. Thanks so much!! Really? I liked it but wasn't super wowed with it on my shape.

    2. You looked smashing in it! I could see your point in not getting it because you have the Turn Jacket, same color.

      Being in the USA, I never saw the Turn Jacket. Would you suggest to go with my normal size? I wear a size 6 in scuba and defines. Thanks.

  7. Off topic, landed on the new lulu sight and must say NOT A FAN! complete decrease in user experience IMO, looks like sportchek site, which I cannot stand! esp on WMTM page, can't do a quick scan of what's there anymore since you literally have to examine the photo to tell what is what.

    1. I completely agree! It's so time consuming and definitely not easier to use, plus I had trouble getting my order to go through Friday, Saturday and finally then on Sunday it went through.

  8. Well the last few wwl did not feature the surprises we got in last few uploads....so I didn't find the sneak peak to be very helpful anyway...I'm OK with surprises.....who knows maybe they will go to a monthly upload....lots of cosy savings there too....my store usually doesn't get everything right away anyways...trickles in over a few weeks

  9. Does the wrap come in off white? I love the dark colors but need light for spring/summer. Since I'm petite this might work but now to find the$ lol!!
