Sizing Chart for Tortoise Pads T2 Style Shorts 

T2 style shorts have pockets on the outside of the shorts to access the pads. If your shorts have slits on the inside then you have the Original Tortoise Pads Shorts. CLICK HERE for the Original Shorts Sizing Chart.

Step 1) Measure your Hips – this is the most important measurement

Hips – Measure around the widest part of your hips or butt, whichever is largest. Use a flexible tape measure or a piece of string to take your measurement.

Waist Lean Build: Measure around your torso just below your belly button. Heavy Build: Measure around the narrowest part below your stomach. This is where the top of the shorts will most likely be worn.

Step 2) Measure your Waist

Step 3) Use the Sizing Chart to determine your size

If your measurement is on the borderline between sizes, select the smaller size for a tighter fit and the larger size for a looser fit.

If your hip and waist measurement give two different sizes:

1) If the hip measurement is a single size different from the waist, try the size indicated by the hip measurement. (Example 1: Hips are Adult Medium, Waist is Adult Small – select the Adult Medium.)

2)  If the hip and waist measurements indicate sizes that are two sizes apart, try the size that is in between the two. (Example 2: Hips are Adult Large, Waist is Adult Small – select the Adult Medium.)

3)  If the hip and waist measurements indicate sizes that are three sizes apart, try the size that is one away from the hip size. (Example 3A: Hips are Adult X-Large, Waist is Adult Small – select the Adult Large. Example 3B: Hips are Adult Small, Waist is Adult X-Large – select the Adult Medium.)
