I made the mistake of buying two of these (in sea mist and orange). They are quite attractive and lightweight so they're easy to throw in my bag. Sadly, I find that I cannot use them anymore. I use them in hot yoga classes to go over The Mat. For the entire class I find myself readjusting it. When I rise into warrior 1 and 2 position it slides and it's difficult to find the pose. Even stepping from downward facing dog to forward fold causes it to move around on my mat. This is challenging because a) the wrinkles are annoying and make me slip around b) I can't keep the entire mat covered during class c) I'm too busy fussing over this towel to focus on my practice. This part isn't a huge deal but because it's a chamois towel, it doesn't absorb the sweat that falls unto my mat. Therefore, after practice my mat is still pretty sweaty. Again, not a huge deal but sort of an inconvenience. I've been a Lululemon supporter for years and I usually love their products. This however, has been a great disappointment. I'm very upset that I bought two of these and cannot use either.

Slips & Slides
I love Lululemon products so I was disappointed to discover how unbearable these towels were during Bikram class. I purchased two towels and tried them out for two weeks. Both were very soft and absorbent; however, I had to constantly reposition them during class, which was quite embarrassing for me. I even tried spraying the towels with peppermint oil prior to class and they still didn't perform to my standards. When I returned the items for store credit, the sales associate recommended Yogitoes towels instead. I'm definitely going to try Yogitoes and hopefully have a better experience with them.

I bought this towel for my hot yoga classes because its so light weighed and the color is nice. However, after three uses I had to return it for a store credit, its just way to slippery and cannot be used at all. I also bought the small one, which seems better and absorb the sweat better but its also slippery if i use it on the MAT, I tried it for downward dog, it didn't work.

I only own 3 or 4...
I spend A LOT of time in the water sometimes up to 4 times a day and then 3 days in a row. These are definately the best way to dry. I can use them 3-4 times to get me dry and usually after hanging them out overnight they are dry in the morning.
These are also great for soaking up the sweat in gym classes and hot yoga.

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!
