|I just got my first set of knee and leg warmers and I'm wearing them around the house They keep slipping down--is this normal? Will the problem go away once I'm wearing my bike shorts?
thanks in advance
|Simple solution. Tuck them under your cycling shorts. (nm)||Ken of Fresno|

|First of all, yes they work better when you wear them under your cycling shorts. A great tip I read here is to tuck them under your shorts and flip the top 1/2" over so the grippers catch the inside of your shorts-works great for me.|

|They shouldn't slip much if they fit right and they're of good quality. I had a pair of Pearl Izumi leg warmers that had articulated knees. Stayed up really well. I lost them at the laundromat and bought a pair of Performance leg warmers that did not have the bent knees. They droop because the fabric isn't as flexible. I think you want leg warmers to be pretty tight, esp. around the ankles.|

|hehehe. ok maybe not, but i've thought about it on occasion.
i find that if i tuck my arm warmers into my sleeves & my leg warmers under my shorts the slippage is reduced.

|Works great and it's almost reflective.
Plus you can get various colors now and accent your Fall ensemble.
