Hitting A Snag

I've been wearing a Dexcom sensor for a while and I'm pretty used to living with what feels like a Lego block taped to my arm. There is only one thing I haven't figured out. How do I keep it from snagging on my clothes? There is a space between the sticky bandage and the sensor that is magnetically attracted to my clothes. Getting it caught on stuff hurts, but that's not the only problem.

I just got a weird reading from my Dexcom. It said 181. My finger said 118. I couldn't figure out why the numbers were no where near one another. Then I remembered when I was getting dressed after my shower  I yanked the sensor once again. This time I knocked part of the sensor out of its clip. I'm lucky it didn't spawn three question marks.

I'm still new to all this stuff. Does anyone have any suggestions on how to keep from snagging my Dexcom on my clothes? If you have any ideas let me know.
