They just don't stay up,
This review is from: Pearl iZUMi Thermal Arm Warmer (Sports Apparel)
I generally like Pearl Izumi products, but their arm warmers just don't cut it. I had a discount coupon for a PI outlet last year, so thought I'd give the Thermals a try after having switched to DeFeet armskins years ago. Maybe, I thought, PI has fixed the fit issues with its arm/leg warmers.
No such luck. Like the several other pairs of PI arm warmers I owned in the past, these ones also reliably fail to stay up around my upper arms. That gap between my jersey sleeve and the top of the arm warmer is just maddening.
The material of the Thermals is nice, and they're certainly warm, but I think I'm giving up on PI arm warmers for good. Unlike PI arm warmers, DeFeet armskins are constructed of elastic material throughout, which means that they don't rely completely upon a band of elastic at the top to keep them from slipping down. They pretty much cling to the length of your arm, with zero slipping.
So if you ride a lot and need arm warmers that won't annoy you with poor fit/slippage, don't get the PI's. Sorry, Pearl Izumi, but you need to fix this.

Pray, sir, would you care to educate me? Even after 30 years of road, mountain, and triathlon cycling, I know there is always more to learn. But how many different ways to wear arm warmers ARE there?

I certainly could be wrong but it seems you may have gotten the wrong size.
