It's really not about mesh or not mesh. Just like any other clothing, different brands fit differently. Generally speaking, "overpants" are sized 2-4 sizes bigger and "lie" about the size. A size 32 overpant is cut to fit a 34-36 inch waist (depending on the brand). Or, a 32 inch waist wearing a pair of jeans! (Hence, 'overpant'!). Different brands are cut differently. If you can't fit them on over your pants, just get a bigger pair!
Truthfully, most motorcycle pants can be overpants. Just get a size or two bigger than you normally would. But 'overpants' are a little nicer as they generally have more generous waist adjusters (nice if you're wearing baggy cargo shorts one day and slim fitting jeans the next day), and generally are just cut a little baggier.
