knee/leg warmer slippage?TPC

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.
