I've found the Planet X 365 shorts to be very good. Usually £40, I've noticed recently they've been on sale at £20.

I think you have to try them and see, though these are expensive experiments. One of the problems is the shape will make as much of a difference as the material, plus how the pad which was probably bought in fits with the cut of the short. I've had a couple of pairs that I really liked only to find when it came to replace them that the design had changed. In the end I gave up, spent the money of saddles and no longer use padded shorts.

You can get padded underpants - Borah make them - then the pad goes in the right place and you can wear tracks bottoms or even pad less bibs over them. The pants are very light - made of a sort of mesh

I'm better without padding. I have tried various brands, but I find them to be so uncomfortable.
I find Lycra jogging bottoms and my BHS knickers keeps me going all day.
