I had the same issue with the Demon d30 shorts that j1nftw1n mentioned, after just one day of usage. The size is correct so it is definitely seems like a design flaw, the material they used is just too thin. Called the company and they sent me a new pair, no questions asked. The new pair looks exactly the same so it will most likely fall apart as well. My wife has a pair of their older d30 shorts and you can actually remove the pads if needed. You can't remove the pads in their new design, at least in mens version. They are low profile and are very comfortable but I would look for a different solution. You might want to look into POC VPD shorts (also d30) but I can't comment about their durability.
