My soon to be six year old daughter is very small for her age (about 40inches tall and 36lb. She is about a 3t around the waist and a 5t length) I have recently discovered little girl slim sizes. It seems like most stores only carry slim sizes online though so I haven’t been able to try any on her. What size comes after 5t for a skinny little girl who is short but has long arms and legs?

I would say 6 slim, because they don’t make 5x right? My stepdaughter is very thin and tall and at each age the slim sizes were appropriate for her. She’s now 8 years old in a size 8 slim because 7’s are too short. The best thing we found for her was “jeggings”, those really stretchy demin looking cotton pants. So at age 6 she was in a size 6 or small jegging. The only thing is you can’t get flares. I’d say it’s safe to buy 6 slims. You could also try thredup.com? threadup? I can’t remember but it’s like a clothing swap site where you can get pants for cheap so it’s not a big deal if they don’t fit 🙂

My daughter is very thin but has long legs. I buy her pants at places like The Children’s Place where nearly all their pants have adjustable waists. They carry adjustable waist jeans and cords. I buy the size that fits her age and then just cinch the waist. It was either that or have her in sweatpants all the time.
