    Steroids.

    Or maybe a smaller size leg warmer.

    First things first. Grippers are on your skin, correct?

    Bigger legs
    Garter belt
    Duct tape

    Seriously...are they supposed to go under the shorts? I had some serious rubbing issues after a recent 10hr ride with leg warmers and have decided to wear them over the shorts from now on.

    I have the same problem with PI leg warmers. Try safety pins.

    Dampen them a little when you put them on. It sounds dumb, but it works. I figured this out after noticing that they didnt fall down after I became sweaty.

    Leg warmers are supposed to go on under the shorts; the grippers on the shorts keep them up. Other than that... I dunno. I've got a pair, has been two seasons, no problems with slippage.
