lorrainegd Posted August 24, 2008 Report Share Posted August 24, 2008 OK - So at first thought this seems like an odd topic to be posting but as I thought about I thought that I might find more moms with the same problems shopping for clothes for their dd's as we are having here as many here may have the same body type as my dancer daughter... DD has the HARDEST time finding pants that fit. OK - more than just a hard time - it's a major problem. We actually couldn't even find shorts this summer... The problem is that her waist is too small and her legs are too long (it also seems to be that she has too much muscle in the derriere). We try slims but even in the slims, if the waist fits they are too short (12slims), and if they are long enough they are HUGE in the waist (14 slim)- even in slims! We never had a problem in the summer before, but this year we couldn't even find shorts because if the waist fit they were even too short, so we cut her too short jeans from last year instead. And all of this is overlooking the fact that if the waist fits, the jeans are really tight across her bottom (I keep telling her they will stretch ). Does anyone else have this problem? Have you found somewhere that makes jeans that might fit a child with what apparently are not typical proportions (She looks perfectly perfect to US!). We've tried adjustable waistbands, but they look silly on a girl her age because we have to bunch them so much (my boys are thin too and this si a great solution for them). Or does anyone have an "out-of-the box" approach/idea? I don't know what we're going to do for winter. The only thing that we can find in any bottoms that we can make work are capris (since proper length is less definate) and sweatpants. Quote Link to comment
