A 30 would be too big. I would say a 26 at most. I am 5-8 and 130 lbs and I wear a 32. The nice thing about the Uglies is their suit is long enough that it does not ride up. They are a bit longer in the torso than some suits. It may feel a little tight at first. It will stretch a little in the water.

I 'm not sure about kids' sizing but I'm 5'4-1/2" and weigh a compact 130 lbs. (low body fat) and I wear a 38 in these Dolfin suits. They fit like Speedo suits, other Dolfin suits I've had, and Finals funky suits that I've had. In other words, I think they're true to size. I almost always buy a 38 in suits but if a suit comes in long sizes I would like a 36L better than a 38. I have a long torso so I have to order a size up when I can't find a long version of a suit. I've probably confused you totally but basically, in answer to your question, these uglies are true to size and great lap swim suits. I've had 3 before the two I just ordered and they do last well and are comfortable to swim in.
