I want to buy my 12 year old DD some modibodi but I am finding the sizing confusing.  She seems to sit between 2 sizes, waist measurement at the lower end of one size and hip measurement at the upper range of the next size up.

She is one of the taller girls in her year, but not unusually tall and is fit and slim, but not what you would call skinny.  

I imagine that fit around the legs is important, but I don't know which size to go for.  

What size does your DD wear?

ETA.   She wears these girls undies in size 10-12, so I feel she is a pretty normal size for her age

I am wondering the same thing!  They’re too expensive to get the sizing wrong, although I plan to order the larger size first on the theory that if it is too big to start with, at least she’ll grow into it.

FWIW, I find the adult sizing quite forgiving.  I have two sizes in my current stash.  I was 15 kilos heavier than I am now when I bought the bigger ones.   But I can still comfortably get away with wearing them even though the smaller ones are probably a better fit.

My just turned 14yo wears a 3xs/4 ladies. She could probably do the next size up too I think. But she's pretty petite, average height but she is slim with a tiny waist and slim legs. She fits into around a girls size 10 undies, but due to her desperation of wanting black, has recently been sometimes wearing a ladies size 6-8 black undies, they're a bit big, but wearable. Her friend who has a bit of a bigger butt just bought the modibodi ladies 2xs/6.
It's a bit of a gamble with online sizes! I just bought one classic and one shorts, so I didn't waste too much money if they were wrong. I'm pretty sure they offer a refund if they're wrong though, but for one pair only.

My 12 year old wears the au4 us 3x size. She is ‘average’ sized.

My petite 13yo has a mix of size 4 and 6. Not all styles come in the 4s.

My tall but very slim 13yo wears the 3xs size.

In clothing she can still fit a girls size 12 (but most things are too short) or an adult size 4/6 or XS.
