After a 4-6 weeks of usage and washings the Velcro starts to curl on the ends and corners. That makes it not hold as well and it become less useful for that that reason long before the main strap wears out.
I love that the loops on the Velcro are against the tube making it grip much better.
Ideas that may help you:
Even though it grips better, because I am active and move around a lot I need a rock solid hold so I wrap a piece of self adhesive rubber tape (like Coban) around my tubes at that point. Because it is soft rubber the tape grips the tube solidly and the Velcro digs in and gets a very solid grip on the tape. To complete the solid hold I glue all my straps to the leg with an adhesive designed for holding compression stockings in place (like Jobst It Stays). I allow for movement at the knee and at the abdomen where I bend. Two straps and nothing moves far on the upper leg.
Nothing works perfect in every situation without a little help.
