    Slims, Gap and ON always fit pretty well and had adjustable waists to cinch them in more. For shirts it is hit or miss. Gaps did seem to run longer than some other brands, but I haven't bought any in a while from there. You can also get longer camis and layer if the length is an issue.

    Now my DD is in Jrs. sizes, and we still have issues. She's still really skinny, but grew a bootie Last year 000 from Aero worked, I would equate that w/ a 12 or 14Slim, if your DD has hips but is still slim waisted. This year she's in 0 or 1s.

    You could probably browse through Old Navy products which have a pretty good variety as well as Gap clothing.

    American Apparel makes great unisex t-shirts for kids in lovely colors that last. I always have to buy up in sizes because M1 is built like a brick, so your DD shouldn't swim in them. I know their CEO is a terrible human being in a lot of ways, but those t-shirts are REALLY good. I buy them online. At 15 bucks each, they can be a good middle ground between Old Navy and Tea Collection.

    Other clothing companies with slimmer silhouettes include Hanna Andersson and Boden.

    I personally love tunic length NFL jersesys as I like to pair them with leggings. I think leggings are the most comfy types of bottoms and look very trendy too. I use plain and pattern leggings casually as well as for my workout sessions. I just purchased a decent pair of leggings from Carbon38.

    How tall is she? My daughter is 5'5" and a half and wears a size 0 women's jean from Maurice's.
    At your daughter's age, mine was wearing a lot of leggings and tunics or jersey dresses from either Land's End or L.L. Bean because the fit and comfort are so forgiving. But Land's End isn't what it was, I hear...bought out or something. What we had to do for my daughter at the awkward age, was go to the most petite women's sizes to get the leg length (and a waist significantly smaller than the hips) and for a while it was jeans, only jeggings or leggings in the smallest women's sizes, fit.Best wishes, and high-rise is quite fine, so if your leggings or jeans don't touch the shoes, roll it up a flip or two (or cut it off and wash it to make a raw edge) and you're fine, style-wise, at least on the East Coast.

    Have you checked out Hanna Andersson? They might also have something and the quality was nice last time my daughter wore them. It is really hard when your daughter is in that between stage, but leggings and tunics work for that.
