I purchased the burgundy, which is the perfect shade of dark red for my skin. The fabric feels like high-end swimsuit material, and the sewn in velvet grip works! I haven’t been in water with it, but I can attest that this turban is very versatile. I’ve even worn it when not at the pool!
I absolutely love the comfort and look of this scarf! I can tie in many ways, and it really does stay on while swimming without weighing my head down with accumulated water. The only thing I'd change about it is the seam where the velvet band is sewn in is white, and I ordered the red color.
