harness suggestions

Hi all,
My Zoe can be an escape artist with her spins and backwards moves sometimes and so I'm still searching for a harness that will fit her comfortably, will discourage pulling, and that she can't slip out of. She is still an XS in most harnesses which makes it tough. I would appreciate any suggestions. She did slip out of the Curli.
Thanks!

I have the Curli for Willow and she never has slipped out of this one for me but I see it didn't work for you. If you are having trouble finding one small enough, maybe you could look at cat harnesses. Other than that, I can't help.

Molly is small at 6.5 lbs. We use the Walk In Sync harness. She can not get out of it. It has a clip on the chest to train them not to pull, as well as a clip on the back. We have been very happy with it.

Our Gracie is a little Houdini. She easily slipped out of three different harnesses before we finally had success with the Buddy belt 2. She is wearing the size 2 harness on the farthest notch and currently weighs 3 lbs exactly. Good luck!

Oh, thank you all so much! I really appreciate all the suggestions. I am sure we'll find one that will work for her. I'm looking forward to trying them.

Leo has a Sense-ible harness which I prefer when he is in long coat because the webbing is very slim and it matts his hair less than other harnesses. He has a step in Doggie Designs harness that works well when his coat is shorter. I don't know how small these harnesses come. I don't remember the size of the Sense-ible one but Leo weighs 11 lbs. The Doggie Designs harness is a small.
Rex wears a Four Paws Comfort Control harness XX-Small. He was about 4lbs when he came home and is now 5 lbs and it fits him well.

I am not a big fan of harnesses although I use one occasionally. They tend to promote matting. The one I use was purchased at Petco as a proprietary brand and we use it as a car restraint too. I use a Stibbar collar and harness for our everyday work (thanks Krandall). The one I use allows me to get two fingers between the collar and Ricky's neck. It is comfortable for him yet does not allow him to slip out of it.

I didn't realize there were so many different types out there. Thank you again everyone. I will look into these. I had been reluctant to walk her after she slipped out of her collar that time, and that is not good. I appreciate all the great info!
