How do they stay up?
Much the same way socks stay up! The cuff at the top of the sleeves is slightly narrower than the rest of the Sleeve.
This part fits snugly on the narrowest part of the arm just above the bicep which also helps to stop the Sleeve slithering, djutable button loop allows for additional tightening on upper arm band.
From time to time you will probably have to adjust the Sleevez to ensure continued coverage as they may move slightly with strenuous exercise

Surprised how well they work to not only keep the sun off your arms but to keep your arms cool as well. I wear these for cycling in the summer here in NJ and even on hot/humid days these are great.

the fabric is quite cool feeling and thankfully they are long enough for my long arms. I get sunspots so these sleeves are a lifesaver.

I'm a trucker my arm is in the sun allday.
Bottom line ---it beats sunscreen and works for keeping the sun off your arms.

Ordered 2 of these in size 1, both with smooth seams and quality fabrics, but this was a bit form-fitting and the length not enough to avoid exposing my wrist, I'll keep 1 for boogie boarding and need to exchange 1 vfor a larger size for driving.
