Girdles are just basically the pads and you need a shell to go over them. I believe they're more of a spandex fit so you have a bit more flexibility. I never had problems with my regular pants though so I never wore girdles.

well the real reason I'm wondering is because the girdles have built in cups, do they sell cups with the pants like girdles

I don't know honestly ... I use the girdle type deal and just put a cup in it I bought seperately. I'm sure different companies have different setups or what comes with it when you buy something.

It doesn't cost much for a cup anyway so either way it would not affect whether or not I bought something to begin with.

Pants do not come with cups. I use these mesh shorts that come with a cup and velcro to hold my socks up. What are they called? jilly shorts or something?

I have never used a girdle because it is called a girdle.

Its personal preference. Ive switched back and forth between the two and the last few seasons have used a combo of the two. a girdle with the legs pads removed and the lower half of a two piece pant.

On the subject, girdles were created to allow more mobility then pants. They're elastic and pads that hugs your body. Cooperalls were the original, and they're still sold as the bauer supreme. Pants at that time were quite basic, uncomfortable and restrictive. They're not anymore. Now it's jsut a question of feel, and some pants are blurring the line, such as the 9k and Eastons' motion pro pant (Or at least one of the easton top end pants- Might be the top stealth)

Pants do tend to be more protective, but that's not at all a hard rule.

I would just stick with pants if you're not sure. If you have the opportunity to try them on though, do that first.

Ive had a friend use a jill (hes a guy) for his enitre house career..he didnt know the difference lol

And getting pants (if they exist) ith built in cups is a very bad idea becasue as you're moving, the cup will shift outta position and not protect your balls

Jock shorts are the guy versions, Jills are for females. And the 'pelvic protector' they come with accommodates quite a bit less then the corresponding piece in the male version.


You just provided a great moment of unintentional hilarity. Unless you're female, in which case I apologize.

Speaking of Cooperalls I just retired my elbow pads back in May or something like that. I used them since like 1990 or so and they held together well.
