The Tacklas are going to have more hip padding than your average pants for better coverage, even if they move. A girdle will fit tighter and won't shift around as much so your padding will be in the right spot.
Honestly I used a pair of Bauer pants for two years and wasn't impressed. They didn't have much protection. I've been using Tackla for over a year now and they are fantastic. Bulky, yes, but I literally haven't felt a thing wearing them.
I have to agree with Jarick here. I had the exact same issue you are experiencing with an old pair of cheap Itechs where I would get dumped on my hip and I would feel it for weeks. After some research I went with the Tackla 9000s and I haven't had an issue since. Waaaay more padding than I had before.
Sorry I can't offer any other advice but this worked for me.
