Q: How do you properly size the arm protectors?

Asked by: Jim DeYoung - 7/29/2015
A: The Posey Arm Sleeves are positioned from the base of the fingers to about the middle of the bicep, so simply measure that distance for the length. For the circumference, measure around the bicep, or if you do not plan on wearing them that high, around the forearm. You will want to prioritize getting the circumference as close as possible since you can roll the sleeve up if the length is too long. They are stretchy so you will have a little leeway.

Q: How do I know what size to order? Who fits in the small size for example?

Asked by: Carolyn - 8/26/2015
A: Please see the product description for sizing specifications. The small fits someone with an arm length, measuring from the base of the fingers to the middle of the bicep, up to 15.5 inches and an arm circumference, measuring around the middle of the bicep, up to 8.5 inches. However, the length of the arm is not as important as the circumference, as the sleeve can be rolled down if too long. If the persons arm is too big though the sleeve will be tight and uncomfortable.

Q: Is the covering thick or hard so it protects you?

Asked by: Mariam - 12/3/2015
A: The covering is 95% cotton so it really helps to cushion minor blows and protect from abrasions. They are probably a little thicker than a regular sock (as opposed to a very thick winter sock or thin summer sock).

Q: We are in Arizona. How warm are these sleeves? Is there a shorter version?

Asked by: Mel - 10/18/2015
A: They are a cotton blend so they will breath, but they will be warmer. Different sizes are available that are different lengths, however there are not different lengths for specific arm measurements. You'll just have to roll them down if they are too long.

Q: How are your sleeves sized? One size fits all? What about tightness and mobility?

Asked by: rpmotl - 2/7/2016
A: Please see the product description for sizing information, one size does not fit all. You do not want them falling off your arm loose, but you also don't want them so tight that they are uncomfortable. They are made of Cotton and Lycra, so they will stretch.

Q: I was advised by a doctor, not to wear anything too tight on my arm. I bruise very easily and have ripped my skin enough to bring me to urgent care, just by bumping in to a doorway, with a thick robe on! Can this Posey Arm really inhibit these types of accidents?

Asked by: Ronni - 3/28/2016
A: Yes, although they can't inhibit you from having the accidents they do help to inhibit bruising and tearing after one. I would make sure that they will not be too tight on you, sizing information is in the product description. You might also want to look at the extra padded version, CPO6002.

Q: Do these look like socks with some cushion. Are they tight? My husband has thin skin and bruises easily. Do u have a phone number?

Asked by: Grace Nola - 4/29/2016
A: I don't think they look like socks, the material weave is much nicer (or maybe I just wear cheap socks). The Skinsleeves are 5% Lycra, which helps them to stretch, but you still need to pay attention to the sizing guide in the product description to make sure you get the correct size; you don't want them uncomfortable tight, just snug enough to stay on/up. Our toll-free line is 877-750-0376.
