Tacklas seem to have some room for error. I can squeeze into 50's and wear a 38" waist dress pant. They fit a hell of a lot better when I had a 35" waist though.
With the shins, it depends on the fit. I used to wear them inside the tongues because my Bauers were narrow at the bottom. When I got Reebok shins they were a lot wider so I started wearing them outside the tongues. It hasn't made any difference.
What is most important IMO is making sure the shin pad protects down to the top of the boot but doesn't push against it. The liner of my shins can move up or down a bit by velcro so I adjusted them a hair to make sure they don't push against the skate, now it's perfect.
