Looking for lightweight non-bulky pants or girdle

I'm currently playing with a pair of RBK 3k pants. The pants offer great padding but are just too bulky and it feels like they are interfering with my skating. I notice it most on crossovers. The legs are so thick they get in the way. I play in an adult beginner league so I don't need a tremendous amount of padding. I still fall so I want some especially in the tailbone and hip area. I like the form fitting idea of a girdle but have never tried one. What would be the best option that would offer sufficient padding but also be lightweight and slim/non-bulky?

Do you have the right size pants? Or very large thighs?

The Bauer Supreme girdle is about as slim and mobile as it gets. Just enough protection to take the sting off of shots.

I've been looking for a slimmer pair of hockey pants and shin pads myself.

These look fairly slim as far as I can tell. I haven't seen them in person though so I can't really say.
