Equipment Fit

I will be starting a learn to play program next month, I've never played before. I have been trying to figure out the proper sizing of pads, pants, gloves, etc. One thing I'm not sure about is how shin pads should fit. I tried on a pair of 14" shin pads, and the pants overlap the top of the pads by a couple inches. But when I bend my knees, the pads pop out and I have to tuck them back under the pants. I don't believe this should be happening, maybe hockey socks will hold the pads closer to the knee, i'm not sure. Do I have the wrong size pad, too short, too long? I don't think the pants are the problem (i'm 5'6" and medium seems to fit ok).
