Looking for some trivial clothing advice here. My DD is 18 months and is 33inches and 22 pounds. She's wearing a 2T because of the length, but everything just hangs on her. The cloth diapers are keeping the pants up, but I'm looking for shirts. Do you know any brands/websites where I can find narrow cut shirts.
Thanks mommas!!

I've found American Apparel shirts (and just about everything they sell) to be for the slimmer folk. DD has 2 3-6 mo lap tees and they are pretty tight at almost 5 months. DS is the same way, his belly hangs out of 2T shirts!

Old Navy has pants with adjustable waist bands (Gap has them too, but Old Navy is cheaper, lol). I've found a brand here for shirts that are quite tight-fitting so I can get a 3T shirt (for the length) and it won't bag out on my skinny dd - the store is Lara (for kids). Not sure if they have that where you are.

i still haven't found any skinny shirts: i just sew tucks into the waist bands of his pants though. he's 16mths and 33in 22lbs. another great option (since he only uses cd at home and needs sposies in the morning while at daycare) are overalls. they stay up just fine

Gymboree leggings are very thin, and long... 2t are too long on dd right now.

For shirts, some gap stuff seems to be longer/thinner, or we get swing tops if I can find them.

I have the same problem with my DS he is 14 months 34 inches 24 pounds. Overalls seem to be the only thing that work. It keeps his shirts from looking silly and creeping up over his belly. The cloth diapers keep his pants up. But shirts are tough. I feel like he is inbetween in very brand of shirts we try.
