She's about 1.25m tall and quite slim so larger sizes sag within minutes and it all goes a bit Nora Batty. Otherwise they come up too short and leave a 6" gap below the gusset (arf @ gusset).

Is she doomed to wear long socks all winter?

Eye thank yew

I have this problem with long legged and skinny DD (7) and after wasting loads of money on various makes, have decided that good old Woolies is the best. Size 9-11 seem to fit her very well.

I don't think we have a pair from Woolies, we'll give them a try, at least they'll be cheap!

We have similar problem but found that this year the Woolies tights came up quite small, but Next seemed to be very generous in length.

John Lewis age 7-8 are perfect on my tall skinny 6-year-old. They also wash really well. go for the ones with lycra.

Doré-Doré (DD) tights are fabulously stretchy. Standard French tights that you can get in any department store or children's shop here - Harrods stock them. Or I can send you some from here if you CAT me.
