I worry about this a little bit, since I'm having a GirlBean soon, but not too much. About slim-cut jeans: I have two nieces; one is a rail and the other is a tank. :LOL The rail owns, I believe, two pairs of jeans that fit her well. Most slims, even, fall straight down. Gymboree is not designed for long, skinny children at all, and as for Old Navy jeans being slimmer... well, maybe ny niece is thin even for a rail because Old Navy slims are *way* too wide for her.
The tank also has problems, because she's not eleven feet tall (though she is very tall for her age) and she's not quite 4 and in a solid size 6.
At least it's not a huge issue at school; she wears a uniform. :LOL They had a horrible time trying to find dresses for Pesach, though. In fact, neither of the girls got new dresses because there was nothing appropriate in any store in the mall (nearly 300 stores, you'd think there'd be something!). My sister literally went from one store to the next looking for anything appropriate and dressy, but could only find clothing designed to accentuate figures and make it look like you have breasts when you don't. What kind of 6 year old needs breasts?!

I have this problem too. I think the issue is not that the jeans have low waists, it's that there are very few affordable alternatives out there for little girls, the vast majority of whom don't have this problem. When jeans which are sized for someone who is still in diapers are cut super low like that, it's just plain silly. I think that they're just saying they want the option of putting comfortable clothing on their little girls, and I totally understand. It's becoming more and more scarce.
|Is anyone concerned about little boys in Speedos, or is that somehow not as bad as toddler girls in bikinis?
The fact is, if you want to put your little boy into a Speedo, you have to look really hard to find it. The overwhelming majority of affordable swimsuits for little boys are adorable and appropriate; the majority of swimsuits for little girls are... well, not.
