Nice deal for a store! I wouldn't use the hole. I rarely do.

Nice video.
on the catch-all shelf.

I've never seen these before! I'm going to have to find one here locally to check it out and see if it works with my body type.

OK, I'm intrigued... but not sure one will work with my body type. I'd love to see pics of anybody that loves her wrap skirt and looks similar to me: 5'7" and curvy -- D cup, small waist, generous booty/hips. I probably weigh about 145.

If I wear a flowing top without waist emphasis, I usually look considerably heavier -- not a flattering look for me. So I'm thinking of doing the skirt only option. What do you think?

I pretty much wear mine as skirts only, because they make me look pregnant as dresses. Even as just skirts I think they're lovely. Nice and flowy and multipurpose.

So I received one yesterday from a local coop. The two fabrics are very silky as opposed to crepey. They are also similiar fabrics unlike some of the other ones I have gotten. This one is awesome! I can use it as a dress and skirt. where the others end up being skirts it seems.

Yeah, I'm having problems finding ways of wearing it where I don't end up with 4 layers of fabric on my tummy. (I'm 5'8, B cup, 145-150)

After seeing this thread, I bought an Enwrapture "One skirt with over 100 ways to wear." The instruction sheet it came with shows how to do 15. Maybe one of the other 85 ways will work out?

I have noticed that since I'm smaller on top, I can tie it in different ways, like wrap it around more times. So, after following their instructions, I experimented a bit. I'll let you all know if I come up with something wearable.

Otherwise, it's a pretty skirt and even if that's the only way I end up wearing it, it was worth the price.

Had to have one!

After reading all the posts here...I just had to order myself one. I will try to keep up so if there is ever another co-op I might get in on it. I had purchased a couple of sarongs and even though I am a bit big for my 5 foot frame, they dont look half bad! So I was thrilled to find this thread!

Hey mamas I'm hoping to get a couple skirts but I'm trying to figure out sizing.

I'm 5'7 and am high waisted. I don't wear sleevless anything so, I would only be wearing these as a skirt. I'm trying to figure out where a short, medium and a long would hit me on the leg.

I'm thinking a long would be about ankle length but, I'm trying to figure out where short and medium might hit - how short is short?

Also, do these add bulk to your middle section? I really, really don't need additional. bulk around the middle

Hey mamas - I just went a a looking at Enwrapture and they have a whole bunch of ne plus-size ones up. I just got this one
I hope it fits! I'm currently hovering between a 14/16, and I'm hoping a dress version will look nice.

I have six, three long and three medium. I am 5' 4" and slim build, NO chest (darn that kid for deciding to stop nursing! : ). The mediums are beautiful LONG skirts on me. Like, ankle length. They make good mid length dresses as well, very light and comfy for summer weather.

The longs are massive. The patterns are gorgeous, but I wish that I'd ordered more mediums since they are much more versatile on my size. The longs are dresses only and they are super dramatic because of the bright colours and patterns. I've worn one out and felt self conscious all day. It was just "too much", over the top. Got a lot of compliments -- and a lot of stares!

I have watched every video and read every instruction sheet, but I'm still a bit stuck wearing either as a halter or similarly tied style (it stays up!) which leaves a lot of "flowy" fabric and thus makes me look kind of pregnant. Even though I'm tiny. Or wearing in one of the over the shoulder styles which looks way too Harri Krishna. All of the other styles that they show on the videos, you'll notice that they tie quickly and then move on -- because if they so much as took five steps, the darn thing would slip down over their boobs! I'm getting more creative, but still wishing for something to help with all of this extra fabric hanging around me. These would be PERFECT maternity dresses though.

Anybody tried washing these on cold in your machine's delicate/hand wash cycle???

Welcome to MDC! I am not far from you at all.

I bought fabric for two more wrap skirts today : I've seen some really cute ones on Ebay but they are all from Thailand. I wonder if I should buy them or not.
post #136 of 189
Thanks for the welcome! I've been reading Mothering for years, but finally jumped in and joined the forum :

The wraps are super versatile and the Enwrapture Vintage ones (that I bought through a co-op for $8 each!) are gorgeous. I love all of my colours and patterns. I'm not super keen on the long ones, like I said, because they are so dramatic on me. I'm too small to pull them off. There are certainly a lot of ways to wear them. Its a matter of finding ways that will both stay on (important!) and not look too freakishly like a Harri Krishna and/or a pregnant woman...

Strangely enough, I picked up one of these skirts at a souvenir shop in Shediac, New Brunswick. Who knew?? It was fun to get to shop for them in person, since it meant I could choose the exact colours I wanted.

I'm actually wearing it out for the first time today. I've got it on as a skirt, with the top layer gathered and tied over my hip. I don't know what length I have (I suppose I could measure it, eh?) but it is an ankle lenght skirt on me. It's super comfy! I'm going to be watching the co-op board to see if I can get a shorter one too.

I just got an Enwrapture skirt from a co-op... was there a thread somewhere about trading for different colours? I don't really like mine, it's pretty but I was hoping for something brighter.
post #139 of 189
Oddly enough I am actually wearing my enwrapture today. For the first time out in public.
I do have a question, actually. I am rather small chested and the skirt is so silky that it kind of slips right off me when I try to wear it as a dress. Does anyone else have this problem? Do you wear something under it (like a strapless cami) to help keep it in place?

The only way that I can wear mine as dresses is to use the loop hole in front. It works as a halter dress that way. You wrap around, then pull both straps through the loop hole in front and tie around your neck. It will not slip off. ALL of the other styles that they previewed and didn't use the loop hole were useless for me, slipped right down. The over the shoulder styles also work as far as modesty goes, but for me personally, they look a bit too "exotic".

Also, washed all of mine in the cold "hand wash" cycle on my machine and they were absolutely fine. Hung them to dry (over the kitchen chairs no less!), no wrinkles or other creases. They wash nicely.
