How do I choose my size?

Salty Cheeks have 'mid-level compression' and, as such, are designed to be a snug fit. The fit is true to size but if you prefer a less tight option we suggest you go up a size. You can refer to our size chart on the product pages for accurate sizing information.

What is the difference between the Men's Full Seat Padding and Tailbone Padding?

The Full Seat Padding offers protection for the sit bones, just like the women's version of Salty Cheeks, while the Tailbone Padding focuses on the tailbone or coccyx area.
