Subject says it all
If I find ones long enough age 3-4 such as hennes, they are huge on the waist and fall down.
If I find some skinny enough mini mode, they aren't long enough and sit half way down her legs!
HELP she refuses to wear jeans and I don't blame her as they have to pulled in so much at waist they dig in!

I've always had this problem with my DD - she's tall and skinny (like her dad, not me, sadly!).

We've pretty much given up on tights and she wears leggings/trousers instead.

My 3 nearly 4 yo is tall and skinny too and I have found Primark tights age 5 to 6 are perfect this winter.

I've found H&M tights really great too!

They stay 'tight' and are a great fit, without too much up to tummy area too.

DD is 3 - wearing 3-4 yrs size

I have a tall and skinny and extremely long-legged 3-year-old. The best tights for her come from the Finnish brand Vendi. Size 90 cm are perfect although she is currently 100cm and about 13-14 kg. You can get them here (they have currently a 3 for the price of 2 offer, 90 cm is available in pink only), or email the shop owner, I'm sure they speak English and shipping to UK cannot be a big deal.

H&M sizing is for short and tubby children IMO. Never a great fit for my DD.

we buy tescos 5/6 for DD who is a tall 3 year old. after the first wash they stop falling down

they are also reasonably priced at £5 for 3.

DD2 is wearing DD1's M&S cast offs. She's a skinny little 4 yr old & wears age 4-5, 5-6 in M&S. They don't have feet shapes, so no worries about the gappy foot bit peaking out of shoes.
