So, I have been battling with my 10.5 year old daughter over this issue since well into 3rd grade. She has always had some sensory issues, such as sock seams and tags bothering her, so I feel like this may be a valid need for her, to feel that her clothes are tight enough. On the other hand, she deems unacceptable pants that nary even a seasoned Brooklyn hipster would snub their nose at. The other problem is that she is a little underweight, which she has been since she grew out of her toddler stage and will likely be slight as an adult, given her genetics. The smallest size that actually has a reasonable inseam for her is a 7 slim, the smallest "big girl" size, and 99% of these are unacceptable to her. I have taken her to literally every place imaginable to try on jeans, I am always careful to remind her they will shrink, but she refuses to even try.
Does anyone have similar problems or particularly long girls and know where to procure the tightest of the skinny jeans in the land? We've been down the Old Navy "super skinny" road before with no luck, and even the Justice jeans (which are exorbitantly priced) only have one specific cut that never comes around anymore she finds suitable. I am willing to pay a reasonable amount of money for these things but $25 is ideal. Thanks!
