My oldest is wearing a size 8 slim but we need to go up a size. She is thin through the waist and hips but has long legs. I want to buy her some mid-rise jeans but everything out there seems to be low-rise! I don't want her butt showing, which always seems to happen with the low-rise because she has no hips to keep them up. Any idea where to get mid-rise jeans? At this point brand doesn't matter but it would be nice if they weren't super expensive.

Does this help?  I have had good luck w/their clothes for my skinny girl.  Also Old Navy has mid rise at a reasonable price.

Justice might be a place to try.  When my dd was younger, like yours, I would buy Hanna Andersson or Lands End, or even Gap.  My 8 y/o ds wears an 8 slim, and we do well at gap and Children's place.  Old Navy never worked for us because their stuff just wasn't cut in a way that fit my child.  Have you posted in the Childhood Years for other ideas?

I had good luck with Target's Circo brand

Another "Lands End" vote.

I was also going to recommend Justice.  My DD lives in their skinny jeans.

My dd takes slims and most of the JCPenney jeans are pretty mid-rise.

If you live near a city (Chicago in my case) a Levi's store will actually fit you for free. They can range towards the pricey side, depending on the type, but they also have less expensive models.
