My dd has decided that she would really like some trousers for a change, I bought some from M nd S and they fit her in the length, but fall down around the waist , anyone solved this problem for their DD ?

Here in Holland most childrens' trousers come with adjustable elastic in the waist, it's a real godsend. Do they really not sell anything similar in the UK?

"Next" did a grey stretch lycra bootleg grey school trouser last season. I got them for DD who is a skinnyness as well!

I tend to sew a piece of elastic either side of the waist in lots of DD's (also 6) clothes.

My dd's trousers are from M&S and they have an elasicated waist, in fact, that's why I go there! Maybe they do different styles?

asda have grey stretchy school trousers that have fairly hefty elastic in them. I also have M&S trousers for dd but they have an adjustable waist.

I had the same problem with ds3 - if trousers fitted him round the waist, they were too short, and if they were long enough, they fell down if he didn't hold them up.

I used to find that Adams' trousers often had the elastic adjustment thingy described by another poster, but I can't say whether they had these on girls' trousers.

If you got a pair made of a slightly stretchy jersey type fabric, it might be possible to take them in at the side seams.

Second Asda £2 stretchy trousers (they have a little metal butterfly at the waist) - they're a really skinny fit.
Fit DD1 lovely and she is a real slinky malinky!
Have to say DD1 onlyb started school in Jan and after 2 weeks wear are very slightly starting to bobble, but at £2 a pair I don't mind replacing them at Easter!

DD is the same, a proper skinny minnie. we get her trousers from Next or M & S and they have adjustable waists.
The only problem is, I have to tightem them so far that they look strange round her bum!

next have elasticated waists

dd1 has m&s ones (floweery pocket) and they have an elasticated waist

nailpolish · 16/01/2009 15:48

by elsticated i mean adjustable

Clayhead · 16/01/2009 19:34

Yes, the flowery pocket with the adjustable elasticated waist are the ones we have too!

these ones, I think

Smithagain · 16/01/2009 20:22

The Next ones Miggsie mentioned are the best ones for my skinny daughter.

Adjustable waists from M&S are OK, but not such a good fit as the Next ones.

WingsofanAngel · 16/01/2009 20:35

Asda do adjustable waste as do Next and adams.
Ds1 has the same problem.

Snake belts!

Debris · 17/01/2009 12:23

Thanks everyone , I popped into town this morning and got a pair of the M and S ones , with adjustable waist, and boy do they need some adjusting !! Snake belts , I had one of those ! Alas not many school trousers have belt loops , not girls ones anyway.
