I use this towel over my lulu mat while in my Bikram class. It pretty much locks in place, no slipping or pulling and tugging it over the mat during class. It soaks up my absurd amounts of sweat. Obviously some gets down into the matt but I feel like it improves the grip even further. Will definitely buy in more colors. I received the mint and it is easy on the eyes.

I bought my first Lulu towel two weeks ago. So good! I really like the material of this towel vs. some of the other bulkier, more terrycloth-like towels that are out there. Yes, it is slippery when dry, so I just fold it down where I place my hands and feet in down dog until I start to work up a sweat. Or just sprinkle a little water on it before I get flowin' to prevent slide. Its great. I plan on getting another.

I bought this towel at the recommendation of one of the sales associates because my yoga mat (which I also bought at lulu) has stains that I have been unsuccessful removing. The towel is terrible. I have always loved every purchase I have made in the store. Recently, I even got my husband hooked on the clothes but this towel is an epic fail. My hands slide and the towel moves easily.

This towel works best when it is slightly damp. It can be slippery when dry so I typically pour some water over hard contact points (etc. where your hands and feet would be during downward dog) before practice.
It's pretty excellent for really sweaty practices.

I love lululemon clothing and have been buying it for years, however I am extremely disappointed with this yoga towel. During my hot vinyasa class the towel kept sliding all over the mat and I had to constantly stop my yoga flow to reposition the towel on my mat, which is very frustration. The palm of my hands also kept sliding forward while in downward dog. The description of this towel is completely wrong and I would not recommend it to the person who practices hot yoga.

I just received the mat and the towel as a birthday gift and it's amazing how much of a difference it has made in my practice. The towel doesn't slide around, there is definitely one side that slides more though, so I usually just flip the towel over beforehand and am fine. It never slides around and stays in place perfectly. Definitely stocking up on these towels!

Love it, but I want more prints!
Prints prints prints! I would buy so many of these in some of the prints that are out and that are coming out. I loved the stained glass one, so pretty. I use these pretty much everyday so I'm looking to have a bunch to rotate throughout the week, but plain colors are boring ;)

My favorite for Bikram
I am often confused by other reviews. I guess maybe I've been lucky with my LL purchases because I am a big LL cheerleader & I love all of my LL things. I don't know how I'd make it through Bikram class without this towel. I use it with my old-school align mat. Once I forgot to bring my towel to class & had to use one of the studio rentals. Never again! This towel makes all the difference. In class I have noticed other people's yogi toes & other yoga specific towels & they are always bunching, slipping & they just don't lay flat. It looks like the edges/seams buckle or shrink after washing (not quite sure how to explain), they just aren't a smooth, flat rectangle like this towel. Other people must notice too because I get asked all the time where I got my towel. I don't slip, the towel is highly absorbent & I just can't say enough good things about it. I guess the best thing I can say is that I have 2 and I will be purchasing 1 more once I see another print I love.

Necessary for hot yoga
This towel is great for hot yoga. It is sticky, stays put, and helps soak up sweat. Great purchase.

Would Not Recommend
I practice hot yoga, and was so excited to purchase this towel and enhance my practice. Unfortunately this was not the case. This towel is so slippery that after a few minutes into my practice I had to remove it entirely from my mat. There was no grip, and the towel kept bunching up when I transitioned between postures. I tried the towel again and stuck it out for an entire class, but the slippery-ness did not improve. I also tried folding the towel in half to reduce it's size and stop the bunching, to no avail. I have given up on trying to use the towel because it became very distracting and annoying. Very disappointed about spending $40 on something I cannot use.
