Sticky Rice Substitute

I noticed that one group on TC had trouble finding sticky rice at Whole Foods.

I had a very similar problem and was directed by the staff at Whole Foods to buy the sushi rice because they said it was the same as sticky rice. I steamed it wrapped in cheesecloth on a rack in a wok. The resulting "sticky rice" was anything but sticky and i noticed that the TC guys had the same problem.

What is the type of rice that makes proper sticky rice and how do you make it so that it is appropriately sticky?
