Wow, now I get to disclose something I thought no one would ever know about. I've found that the width of the pad can be different between shorts/bids from the same company and the same model/type. I know how wide I like my pads, and have actually measured the width of my favorite ones. I take this measurement and a tailor's tape measure with me when I shop for shorts. Then I always turn the shorts inside and and measure the pad. Recently I bought three pair of Performance Elite Bib shorts (because the pads were the right size). I turned down four other pairs because the pads was too narrow in three of them and too wide in the fourth. I've had similar experiences with Pearl Izumi and Cannondale.
