Wrapsody Breeze Review and Giveaway!
I was so excited to be given the opportunity by Wrapsody to try out the Breeze woven wrap and couldn’t wait for it to arrive. Wrapsody Breeze Review and Giveaway!
I have used other stretch-knit soft carriers before, but due to the bulky, hot fabric, I have been exclusively carrying my daughter in a structured carrier. The Breeze, however, has totally changed my perception of soft carriers. The wrap is so lightweight and it’s just beautiful! It is made of woven cotton gauze which creates a very breathable and versatile wrap.
The Breeze came folded in a matching compact, zip-up pocket for storage, a quick start pamphlet and a DVD. At the end of one side of the wrap, there is a sewn-in pocket so that you can fold the wrap into itself for easy storage on the go.
The first “carry” (wrapping method) I tried was the traditional kangaroo carry. I was so surprised at how simple tying the wrap was. The fabric was just so light and smooth that it never felt like I was wrapping four and a half yards of cloth around myself. The fabric had a perfect amount of stretch and held my daughter very securely without loosening up as time passed.
I also wore my daughter using the side-pocket carry and traditional cross-carry and was again very pleased with the ease of use and slight stretch of fabric.
As a mama of a baby who is still in the ‘spit-up phase,’ I was curious as to how well the Breeze would wash. Wrapsodybaby suggests hand washing and hang drying the wraps, but they also admit that we busy mamas don’t always have time to hand wash a wrap (so true!). As an alternative, you can put the wrap inside a bag for washing delicates, or a tied-off pillowcase, and then hang dry. I chose the latter option and set my machine to the hand wash/delicate setting with cold water. My Breeze washed perfectly and retained its color, stretch, and integrity.
- Breathable, cool fabric
- Many beautiful patterns to chose from (I have the Presley print)
- The Bali Breeze is very lightweight and compact. One time, I thought I misplaced the wrap, when it was actually in the bottom of my diaper bag!
- Washes very well and air-dries over night
- The wrap was a little short for my taste; I wish I had ordered the ‘B’ sizing, which is five yards of fabric, versus ‘A’ which is four and a half yards long
I truly love using the Wrapsody Breeze woven wrap and would recommend it over common stretch-knit wraps to any mama! Wrapsody has generously contributed another wrap to give away to a lucky winner.
