Finding the Perfect Fit for the Slim Middle-Schooler
Remember all that talk about finding pants for slim tots? What about for the slim middle-schooler? Sheryl writes:
I know this question has been asked in some form in the past, but it primarily related to younger kids.I have a very lean and tall almost middle-schooler (barely little kids size 6 through the hips and waist, and approaching a size 12 inseam). I am having an awful time buying long pants for her. Size 10 slims have a lot of extra bulk and fabric in the rear end (although adjustable waist pants save the day through the waist), but are reaching the point of being way too short--thank goodness capri weather is coming soon!However, I know the poor kid is going to want to wear long pants come next fall/winter. Has anyone had any luck with a particular brand or store that really cuts their pants narrow through the hips/waist; have adjustable waists; and come in slim sizes?I've had the best luck with Osh Kosh size 12Slim, but those are still not great.We've got no luck any longer with Old Navy, Gap, Children's Place or Levi's jeans/pants. The house brands are Target are no good either. Thumbs down to LimitedToo. Tried the Juniors stuff at Aeropostale, American Eagle, Abercrombie, Hollister--even the Aeropostale sweats in XXS with a drawstring were HUGE on her. Gap petites are still too big. I'm at a loss!
