UGGHHHH LOL what do I do ???

My DD is yes, larger than alll the girls her age. She is turning 3 at the end of this month and I have a terrible time finding clothing that fits her and im at my wits end. She is in a 5T, and its always the waist on clothing that doesnt fit. Does anyone else have a child bigger than the others that could give me places to shop where not everything is meant for a child that is super skinny... :(

  • The 5T waist is too big or too small?

    I know a lot of jeans offer the adjustable waist strap.

  • I am aware that its a size that every store carries. But it too doesnt it, length yes for a short while, waist no... even adjustable waists do not fit....

  • My son was that way. I would just but him elastic waist pants/shorts. Walmart or JC Penney.
    Or try a size 5 in the bigger girls section (not toddler). I think the toddler stuff fights tighter in the waist.

  • I understand what she is saying...she needs the bigger size for the waist, but the length is too much. I have the opposite problem with mine, but it is annoying.

    I say buy the size that fits the waist and then hem the legs to fit.

  • Go into the girls section and get 6x, and shorten the pants. I had to do the same thing.

  • Or maybe watch ur kids weight a little better. Just because ur probably fat doesn't mean ur kid has to be.

  • Um, OP, please be aware that not all the anon answers here are from the same person, I put the answer about 6x and don't want to be perceived as the witch who put the next answer. Some kids just carry weight differently, my DD isn't that big but doesn't fit into non-x sizes hence the 6x.

  • The Children's place and I think the gap sell some pants in '"husky" that though meant for a boy are often pretty neutral for the basic jeans and so forth. Elastic waists, wear more dresses so you don't have to worry about it, and yes get a size or two bigger and hem them or bring them to a tailor for adjustment, they even have that mend it glue that works a few washes if you want to take the lazy route.

    Try some different brands, believe it or not some designer clothes. If you go to a Marshall's or Ross's type store you might find a certain designer that fits as is.
