Protect the tailbone?

Need some advice guys. Last track day I found out halfway through the day that I didn't have a back protector in my suit. So went shopping for one and a buddy recommended the Knox Aegis. I purchased the 7 plate with no tailbone to the right and after researching, decided to try the 8 plate with tailbone cover.

It fits on my back great (8 plate 'race') but it makes my leather pants look like I'm rockin a diaper. I was thinking of either getting suspenders for the pants to minimize sag or going with the 7 plate and getting compression shorts with a tailbone cover. What do you guys think and can anyone point to to the right direction as far as bike/snowboard/football compressions?

On track days, I wear the longer aegis WITH a-star padded compression shorts (hips, outer thigh and tailbone). Seems to work ok for me.

Thanks for the reply. I went that same route with the 7 plate. Picked up A* compression shorts with armor for tailbone and hip.

I am using an Alpinestars integrated back and chest protector, but for the hip and tailbone area, the armoured Forcefield shorts is what I rely on.
I took out the hip area padding from my leathers to make room for the padding that the shorts have.
