Great idea, but mediocre execution

Love the idea and it definitely has potential, but the snaps needed to transform into certain styles, started to detach just while I was trying it on.

Overall Good

Overall this is a good piece of clothing but there are some cons. For size I am 195lbs 5'6. Not chesty but broad/muscular shoulders, legs, and hips from weighting. I got the maxi size but could also probably have done the regular size. There's definitely enough fabric the dress styles go past my knees more like mid calf but I'm okay that it will be nice when traveling to more conservative places. I may eventually order the regular size also to have one that's a little more fitted.

Pros:
-frabric is super soft and nice. Like the frabric of your dreams soft.
-it is a very versatile piece and you can tell it's well thought out
-I have found a couple of other styles to wear it in that aren't in the instructions
-small substainable company with good customer service

Cons.
-snaps are weak I've worn it once and two snaps are halfway fallen off. I know how to sew so not a huge deal to me as I will just reinforce the snaps
-price is definitely a little steep
-written instructions and online videos are not super helpful. I wish the online videos had talking instructions rather than just music.

Overall I would buy this again though.

Life changer

After deciding to become more minimalist this has become one of the single most important pieces in my wardrobe. I was initially skeptical because of the price tag but the quality warrants the price. The material is soft, durable, yet breathable. The only complaint would be the booklet of instruction was a little easier to follow. The black material makes it difficult to read. I know I'm going to use the chrysalis cardi so much that I'm going to learn all the options quickly enough. I highly recommend this to anyone for traveling or just being a minimalist.

An innovative idea

I’ve only worn this once as the cocoon cardigan and I liked it. I have to admit that neither the paper instructions which come with the garment nor the instructional videos were very clear as to how to transform it into this formation. Those instructions REALLY need an edit and need to be translated into instructions that make sense.
