What size Tights/Breeches do I wear??? Petite 24 year old.

Hi, I'm having a hard time figuring out what size breeches/tights I wear.

I have a 25.5" waist, 33" hip, I'm 5'3" tall, and weigh about 95 lbs.

I bought a pair of Riding Sport breeches in the size 24 and the waist fit fine, but the legs were baggy due to my legs being skinny.

I'm 24 year old, but would a children's size work better for me since I am so small?

haha, I'm 16 years old, and weigh 145 lbs, and I can get into a well-made children size 16. The first pair of jodphurs I bought, at age 10, were Devon-Aire ribbed-fabric breeches, size 16, and I am only now having to get rid of them (6 years later!!) because the crotch is worn out. As long as it's a good brand, go for a kid's size. They're cheaper and come in better colors, anyway!

Riders aren't 16 and pregnant. Riders are 16 and arthritic.
