About this deal

You could get the brownie leggings and just use a needle and thread or a friend’s sewing machine to run up a seam the inside leg to make them tighter. Easily done providing enough stretch in the leggings. You don’t have to tell her if it would upset her. You would have to see carefully to avoid lumps/discomfort as she is sensitive. And sizing... Do the clothes tend to come up large or small for the measurements given? I'm going by the guidelines on Rival Dancewear. Also a leader can’t insist she wears the branded trousers/leggings either, so tbh I would recommend she wears what she is comfortable with.

know how tight fitting Brownie leggings are? Does anyone know how tight fitting Brownie leggings are?

Oh, but what about sizing? Oh dear. If DD is still in size 5-6yo trousers (and they are slightly small on her) does it make sense to think she'd need the smallest trousers Brownies do, size 20"? loveleggings.com/products/chocolate-brown-high-waisted-leggings?variant=31929287475288¤cy=GBP&utm_source=google&utm_medium=cpc&utm_campaign=google+shopping&gclid=EAIaIQobChMIiq-Rqb3e5gIVibHtCh3FgAx4EAQYDiABEgKZv_D_BwEIt turns out that they go off with no clothes at all (okay, they wear Brownie uniform on the day the leave and the day they return, but that's it). Everything else clothing wise is provided by the venue! I guess that's easier than sorting thru whose clothes are whose at the end of the week. They aren't really leggings, more soft trousers. They are wide too, so a slim child can't wear them. The leggings are not hugely tight fitting for being leggings tbh. However all the uniform range is known to shrink a little in the wash. Aha! Were they going to a PGL-type organised holiday? I thought we were talking about staying in a glorified hut with very basic facilities, which is what we do on Brownie holiday! You would only expect them to have one set of official uniform, and then their other clothes to be in Guiding colours, if possible. You wouldn't be expected to spend a lot of money.

I’m sure the Leader would - in the circs - be happy to talk to her about it being ok for her to wear something different if she’s anxious about Rules: I’d absolutely do that for a new Brownie starting with me.

I agree with the others about how the Brownie leggings fit. It would be worth having a word with one of the leaders definitely. As a PP said you might find the other girls don’t wear them anyway, or at least you will be able to find out for sure. Ours guides need to wear uniform for a uniformed camp. If they only have one uniform they ask that they wear clothing in colours similar to the uniform (blue). She will only wear 'proper' leggings that are completely fitted (it's a sensory thing) and not soft jersey trousers. Bizarre question I know! My dd is about to start Brownies. She has ASD and will only wear leggings. For Rainbows we bought her red leggings and uniform tops. Brown leggings are much harder to come by!

It didn't come across as offensive to me - it made me laugh out loud (especially the bit about the honking child)! loveleggings.com/products/chocolate-brown-full-length-childrens-leggings?variant=20202380755032¤cy=GBP&utm_source=google&utm_medium=cpc&utm_campaign=google+shopping&gclid=EAIaIQobChMIiq-Rqb3e5gIVibHtCh3FgAx4EAQYAiABEgJXofD_BwE Sorry took that to seriously , too much crap on the boards from other silly people, think it was getting to me last night.

Part of the Brownie uniform mix and match range, these leggings are a comfortable option and have a high elastane content to keep their shape over time. I know she won't need it straight away, but it's something she's asking about, which means it's part of her anxiety and I don't want her worrying about it.
