All About The Savasana Wrap!

So, I have a small confession, I only own one of these amazing things. But this post is going to be ALL ABOUT The Savasana Wrap.

I absolutely love the Savasana wrap. It’s perfect for fall, and coming out again in July! I’m so excited!

Here’s the product information about the wrap:

1. This long, loose-fit style is great for layering on the way
     to the studio and ideal as a blanket during savasana!
2. Our own blend of breathable cotton French terry
    with stretch so it won’t bag out!
3. Use one, two, three or all the snaps to customize fit
4. Cozy side pockets to keep your hands warm
5. Preshrunk so that there are no surprises when washed!

Fit: The Savasana wrap is a very forgiving item, with regards to fit. The main metric I would consider when purchasing one is the sleeves. If the sleeves are too tight, it’s probably not going to be very comfortable, and if they’re too loose it might look frumpy. I wear my regular size in the Savasana wrap, so I would say that they’re true to size. But I’ve heard that some people size down. I would also be a great maternity piece, as there’s a lot of room in the front.

There are a few different ways to wear the Savasana wrap. You can wear it with all the snaps done up.

You can wear it with some of the buttons done up. And Lululemon often makes the liner adorable! Some cute examples:

As you can see, if you wear it with some of the buttons done up, and the liner exposed, it actually looks even cuter than with all the buttons done up, in my opinion. The final option is to leave it completely open. You’ll find some examples below:

Savasana Wrap, worn open. Not 100% sure on the color. This was featured on "Hey Lululemon.com" during the contest, and I've never seen it before. My best guess is that this is one of the colours that will be available in July.

As mentioned in the product information, these Savasana wraps are designed to be used as a blanket during Savasana. When laid out, they are square. Here’s an example.

I have another post called “All about Scuba Hoodies,” if you enjoyed this one.

I also want to mention that last time these were released they retailed for $118, I hope Lululemon sticks with that price point.

Anyways, I really can’t wait to get my hands on these. I really hope to see some creative designs and the good old fashioned quality that was typical of these in prior releases. What are your thoughts on the Savasana wrap? Adorable? Fashionable? Frumpy? Let me know in the comments below!

UPDATE: July 29th, 2014

Today’s the day that Lululemon uploaded the NEW 2014 Savasana wraps! I’m happy to report that they DID stick with the $118 retail price.

As far as the liner colours- I’ll be honest, I’m guessing. Both are now sold out/ out of stock. I have yet to purchase one. The reason being that I am still waiting for the Dune/ Jewelled Magenta one that I believe will be the next colour released. It’s just a guess, but honestly, I’ve never seen the colour pictured above. Have any of you? If you know what it is, please let me know. Maybe I’m just engaging in wishful thinking, but I really hope there’s one with a Jewelled Magenta liner. *nudge, nudge, Lulu*

UPDATE:

So, it looks like Canada sold out in the Dune colour in 5 minutes and they’re getting Black next week. I’m still hopeful that we’ll get another color, but I’m starting to doubt it. I wonder if it will be available in the fall, perhaps? Or Christmas? I was really hoping that we’d get something more stain resistant than Dune and more exciting than black. (Or, if it has to be dune, that pretty Jewelled Magenta (?) liner will do nicely… I just won’t wear it around my little ones.) I have a black Gratitude Wrap and I just don’t need a Black Savasana Wrap.

As for the colours of the liners: I found a photo:

So, I was right about the Cadet Blue, but wrong about the Bruised Berry, as we can see from the photo it is Deep Zinfandel.

If we do get another colour, or if I hear anything- I’ll update here 🙂

UPDATE: July 31, 2014

From what I’m reading on Hey Lululemon.com, I don’t believe that we will be getting another colour SOON. However, I am still curious as to whether we’ll be getting one in the Fall, or November, right before the Christmas season. The comments made by Lululemon’s representatives said that they’d be releasing all the inventory at once, though there was a problem with the Dune on the Canadian side, so that will be released next week. I am still curious about the one I posted above and again, if any of you have seen the ‘what looks to be Jewelled Magenta lined Dune’ please let me know. If I see a re-stock, trust me, I’ll let you know, but somehow I imagine that eBay and the Facebook auction boards will see these first.

I guess that’s all for now-

Thanks for reading!

UPDATE: HeyLululemon.com has been retired by Lululemon as of May 16, 2016
