extra small underwear

I'm going to start potty training with my 18 month old this week and I need to find some tiny underwear. She is above average in height, but a skinny little thing and I'm afraid most 2T underwear won't fit. Anyone find some really little ones?

Hello Lynn,try looking on E-bay under dolls,then clothing.

Many of the child sized dolls of the 50' and 60' wore small childrens sizes,including panties.

I hope this helps.

I can't remember if I got them at Target or Walmart, but Sesame Street has their own underwear (thats the actual brand) with Elmo on them and they run pretty small. I'm thinking they shrunk a lot after the first wash. The 2T/3T size runs much smaller than Hanes and Gymboree brands. When my little guy first started PT he fit into the Sesame Street 2T/3T fine and he was still wearing 12-18 month size shorts and pants.

Good luck!

You also want them a little big so that they are easier for her to pull on and off.

Thanks, the 2-3T actually fit. They are baggy, but they don't fall off. I'm amazed because her pants do fall off!
