Review: Bijou Wear Decadence Skyline

Bijou Wear Decadence Skyline

• 100% cotton

• $$

• Machine woven

• Support: Average

• Best for: Any Age

• Carries: Great with all

I was able to check out Bijou’s Decadence Skyline when another wrap came to visit and this did not disappoint.

This wrap is so fun! It’s a double weave, but don’t let that scare you. It honestly doesn’t require any breaking in at all. It was extremely soft when it made its way to me. Decadence Skyline is extremely supportive and I could get Tot (4 years/44 lb) up in a ruck. The double weave reminded me of memory foam.

Decadence Skyline is so cushy. There’s a lot of shoulder cush. I think that makes it great for those heavier babies and toddlers. It’s supportive like you wouldn’t believe. It isn’t prone to digging at all. There’s a little bit of stretch, that helps mold those perfect passes. Dumpling wanted to nurse, so not exactly the neatest carry, but it was very comfortable.

It’s a pretty solid wrap, with a little bit of give. I can see more happening as you wear for longer lengths of time. The double weave is a bit thick, but not really cumbersome where it frustrates you. It also makes it a tiny bit on the warm side, but not overwhelmingly hot.

This wrap could handle a decent work out, but it is mostly white. It’s 100% cotton – Egyptian and standard cotton, so it doesn’t need to be washed a special way. As always, I recommend you follow the manufacturer’s recommendations.

Decadence Skyline wraps well for all the texture that it has. It makes it grippy, so you might have some issue with gliding passes around. It isn’t really a problem though and it really helps lock those passes in. You don’t have to worry about readjusting constantly. My knot was on the big side, but I love big knots. Dumpling was able to sit right on it during a front wrap cross carry and I didn’t have to double knot it. It stayed put.

The wrap is soft and snuggly. One side had almost like a flannel feel to it. The other side was more of the textured side. Slightly bumpy. Skyline was retaining its shape while it was here, but I’d assume it would get more floppy as it gets used.

Loved having Bijou Decadence Skyline here for a good amount of time. I love hosting wraps for a good length of time so I can see how it changes. I love the diamond pattern on it and those colors are so me. I would definitely recommend this wrap to anyone with a bigger child or find a used, broken in one for a squish.

  • This wrap is so beautiful. ⁣

I received Dreamer with a cotton/hemp weft yesterday. This weft is hand dyed by Echo over at @chicibeanz for the collaboration with @appleblossomwovens. ⁣
⁣
The pooling of the hand dyed yarn really makes it looked striped almost. It almost looks like a totally different wrap compared to the black linen weft I’ve been using. ⁣

  • I got surprised with a trip to @Disneyland for Valentine’s Day. It’s so crowded because of the long weekend. There’s even lines for the bathrooms - every bathroom. We haven’t gone on many rides, but we’ve checked out more shows than before and looked around for hidden mickeys. The weather has been perfect too. ⁣
⁣
I hope you’re on some adventures this long weekend. What are you up to?⁣

  • We rarely get to drive over the Golden Gate Bridge. I hate tolls and I also hate driving over bridges, but this was too much fun to not. ⁣
⁣
The kids fell asleep right before we even made it, but I was going to go for it. I’m glad we made a trip out of it, even though the car ended up breaking down. Nobody stopped to help. The few people I did get to ask refused to help 🤷🏽‍♀️⁣
⁣
At least we got to check it out. 🌉
  • Dreamer is a dream. This wrap is gorgeous. I loved being able to test it all weekend in the city. ⁣

  • I’ve been looking for any copies of my maternity photos with Dumpling since I suck and I can’t find my copies. @bijoubabywearing was able to find some of me wrapping Tot in Baskerville Boardwalk and I couldn’t be happier. I love the bubbles in this one. @paintingskies did such a great job with this shoot. My family had so much fun with her. ⁣

  • When your friend @koalacuddlesbabywearing  needs shots for upcoming educational material for @happybaby and you drop what you’re doing at @disneyland to check out their onbuhimos 😂💕⁣
⁣
This Marigold onbuhimo was easy to get in the shoulder to shoulder height and pretty comfortable. I might need to snag one. ⁣
