I recently purchased a pair of sbd knee sleeves in size large, My knees are 15.5 inches so this should have given me a tight fit.
I haven’t squated in them yet, but I feel I maybe should have gone down a size. The problem with sizing down would be that these large sleeve are super tight around my thighs, with about 3 to 3.5 inches of the sleeve extending below my knees. I have followed several guides to put them on, the best being to fold the bottom up a couple of inches and then fold the top down all the way. I then pull this up to center of knee and unfold.
Am I wearing these right? Do I need to pull them up further, even though they are already tight around thighs? Will there be any kind of break in needed, allowing me to pull them higher?
Anybody else have these fit tight around thighs and not so tight around knees?
How far below your knees are you guy’s wearing you’re sbd’s?
