Or go with a girdle and a shell.
Best thing you can do is go try them on... I don't think you'd be happy with Tackla/Eagle pants. When you try some on, mess around with sizes and go with what feels best. The Bauer Supreme series is where I'd recommend you start from but if you bring home CCM, TPS or Mission pants, I wouldn't be totally shocked. I'd be pretty shocked if you went with Tackla, Reebok or Bauer Vapor pants though. I haven't checked out the Easton retail pants but Easton do have a pretty good protective line.
I'll try some stuff on, the bauer Supreme's if they have those. My main trouble these days is finding stuff that is an X-large in the store to actually try on.
It is also hard to do leg overs in the store to see if there are restrictions in movement. I hate buying new stuff lol.
