WOW my girl isnt that petite but she is 7 and wears size 6/7 for shorts. Size 8 or 10 for dresses due to her height. There needs to be more children specialized alteration shops so we can get them clothes to fit properly. At least for girls though we can put them in dresses when their height does not match their weight.
I have a 10 yr old that still rides in a booster.
The girl is a pain to shop for. She has long legs, no butt, no hips......
My 13yo was able to wear the same shirts from kindergarten until last summer. LOL He gets taller, but he's all legs- his torso never seems to grow! He's still small overall, though. He is only 4'8" and just over 70 lbs. From age 10-11 he lost weight and the doc wanted to keep an eye on it. Last year at 12 he had lost even more and was lighter than he'd been at 10-- he'd just had an appendectomy and that affected his weight for a few months. His ped put him on a higher calorie diet. He just burns calories too fast to keep weight on and too fast to grow. My hubby was/is the same way. Anyway, he gained a bit of weight over this past year. Hopefully it's enough to satisfy the ped at his weight check appointment next month.
My hubby had his teenage growth spurt and it put him over 5 ft... eventually he got to about 5'6" and stayed there until his senior year of high school- when he shot up to 6 feet! My son has some hope!
My twins are always one of the smallest ones in the class or on the team but they don't let it bother them. I was afraid of them getting picked on but they are more like celebrities. Everyone seems to know them. They are 7 and weigh 42 pounds. It took forever to get past 40 pounds.
My 6 year old son is very skinny but tall. So we have to buy adjustable waist band pants in size 7 for length, but cinch it to a size 3/4 waist. He wears a size 7/8 shirt because of his long torso
NO!!!!!! Mine are skinny, but giants. Lol at least if a child is shorter, they have the option if they are skinny to wear smaller closes. I have to buy at least 12's for length for my 8 and 9 yo's. they can't weat sweatpant type materials, like yoga pants. No pants at all unless they have an adjustable waist. And, the waist is so cinched to keep them up, it looks stupid. Lol dd can still wear size 4 in shorts and skirts.
Being shorter and thin would be so much easier. Lol now, if my kids were tall and heavy, it would be easier, since dresses and shirts are huge around on dd. :p of course, if they were short and heavy, that could be difficult as well. :)
