Taping them should keep them from moving around.

You'd be surprised at the fit of knee pads. Bring your skates to the store with you and try some on. I'm 5'8 and always though 14" pads were big, but 13" and even 13.5" pads were WAY too small. Once I had my skates on and made sure there was no gap in my ankle, some 15" pads would work. The best option for me since my calves aren't that big was to use 14" pads and move the liner up or down slightly to cover my ankle while my knee was centered up top. I still have to tape though.
