There is no slipping, stretching or bunching with this mat. Padding is perfect thickness and it is cushioned well enough for basic and restorative yoga practices.
This is the first yoga mat I have had, so I can't compare. But I like it, the thickness is as advertised, it is very well padded. And the color and the patterns are just as the online image suggests.
It's very flexible. Not slippery at all. Great product and quick delivery. Definitely would give a 5 star rating.
The design is so cute, I get a ton of compliments on this mat whenever I take it to a class.
