ds(9) body shape - wide hips

ds(9) is tall, slim and well toned from lots of footie, karate and swimming.

I like Next jeans as they are slim legged, but have noticed more recently that even though he wears age 10 for the leg length they are tight around the waist which he wears low on his hips. He has no tummy so it's all because of his hips which look quite wide relative to the rest of his body.

Do 9 year old boys have wide hips and then their bodies even out as they grow and shoulders widen or is he likely to stay hippy?

Get the next size up. I've noticed Next jeans are mean around the waists...a 10 is more like an 8 to 9 and if your DS is like most of the kids I know...at 9 he needs more like a 10 to 11 size. So in Next that would be an age 11.
