Thanks for the suggestions! I will check out old navy first and also look into the other options. I think skinny jeans would be perfect for her. The adjustable waists we've tried end up slipping and leave marks because they end up too tight where they fall to. Does that make sense? I would think that skinny jeans wouldn't slip as much because they are smaller everywhere else too.

What else is awesome about old navy jeans is that you can get them cheap! They have them on sale for $10 a lot and you can usually get some kind of coupon or discount code on top of that. And they hold up well.

Yes!! I loaded him up back in August when they had the $10 jean sale! Should last him the winter.

OP: Old Navy does have skinny jeans in the adjustable waist!

Crazy 8 has some awesome slim jeans!! DS can still pull his 4Ts on and off without unbuttoning, yet they are half way up his calf!! The 5 slims fit him PERFECTLY

Walmart. DD is the same weight as your at 5. She can wear both 4 slims and 5 slims. They happen to be the only store that has slims in store in my area. JC Penny does sometimes- they are a little bigger, but still fit. Walmart's slims are nice, trim and have adjustable waist. First time EVER dd has worn pants in her age size. She has always been 2 sizes or more smaller. She still has 2T shorts.

Our Walmarts haven't carried adjustable waist jeans in over 4 years now. That is where I originally used to get mine.

Re: What pants or really skinny kids?

The only adjustable waist pants that comfortably fit my very skinny DS are the GAP ones, which stinks because they are usually pretty pricey. Old Navy is the same company, but for some reason their version just don't fit as well. We stalk GAP to find them in the sale section and then use coupons to usually get them for around $12 which is pretty good. We also use a Dapper Snapper belt that snugs the pants even smaller without digging into his waist like a normal belt sometimes does (happens when the belt rides up over the pant's fabric because I have to tighten it so much), plus it's more convenient for little bladders. We've always had a struggle finding a good balance between the length of the pants and the fit of the waist. DS is very tall, around 47 inches at 4 yrs 10 mths, but he only weighs about 38 pounds.

Hope ours doesn't stop. It is the only place locally that has them, everywhere else they have to be ordered online. Since she is so skinny I am hesitant to order something she can't try on.

Really? Our walmart has the adjustable waist slims, and I still can't get them to fit on my kiddos. I bought a pair one time in a jean emergency, and wish I hadn't! I compared them to old navys...and the slims I got at walmart have the same waist as old navy's regular (not slim) jeans. Probably just as well though, because our walmart jeans are higher than I can get the old navy jeans anyway.

Us too! DS is wearing 5 slim 'Rockers' this very moment and only has the waist taken in the tiniest bit, probably could get away without it at all, and that never happens!
