Question Elastic bandages

Hi there. I have recently bought new elastic bandages for my pony mare. I have worked a lot with the fleece ones, but these are elastic so I am afraid that I will tighten it too much... Lisa is very sensitive, she has never worn any kind of bandages or bracers or wraps, etc... When she doesn't like something, she shows that very apperently, she makes terrible noise, paws with hoofs, even tries to bite,... I firstly tried to tack her with these bandages, and because I was afraid of the tightening, I made it too loose. While tacking, she was standing quite easily, only putting her legs somtimes up as she thought I was asking her to put it up for cleaning hooves. But while riding, they almost fell down for several times. Yesterday I tried to tighten it more. It held the right position and Lisa didn't do anything strange. She was w/t/c/g regularly, wasn't trying to get it down with mouth (biting), didn't paw with hooves or anything. Just one thing-after ride, when I was taking it off, she didn't stand on the one leg I was working with. But when I tried if she limbs or something, she didn't, she walked in w/t as well as anytime. Should I take her reactions as she isn't used on bandages, or should I loosen them? But when I do it, they fall...
I also gave her on a pasture with them and she seemed comfortable with it, she didn't do anything to take it down, she just ate grass
Is there any clue how to fit elastic bandages? Any tips? Advices?
