My daughter is requesting longer spandex shorts... (Maybe dance moms can help me?)

They are for wearing under her marching band uniform the ones she has now are ok but she would like longer ones. The problem is she's super tiny and all the ones I've found at dance stores are not tight enough. They have to be snug fitting so they don't bunch under the uniform pants. I got these bike shorts in the youth section at a sporting goods store.

Yes they are snug and no I dont have stick. They tend to be ones runners wear under shorts.

 Do they wear pants? If so what about a pair of leggins?

dude buys the 2 pack of these, and when one wears out, or a whole in the leg, cut them into longer shorts, they have a cotton crotch, and are opaque. this would probably work, and be a hell of a lot cheaper.

1 mom liked this

oh and if you do that, save the legs cut them up in to inch and a half wide pieces, they make awesome hair ties.

They can't be leggings because they might show under the pants. The pants don't even touch the top of their shoes. Like knee or just below is what she's looking for. Mainly to keep her legs warmer and because the pants are itchy.
