Use tennis warehouse leather grip, the thinnest version. I think it is 1.3 mm, pull it extra tight while putting it on, and use minimal overlap.
I have done that before, works well. Then put a thin overgrip on, and it should be considerably smaller. Also, the leather will decrease over time a little, making it even thinner...
Otherwise use babolat skin feel if you are not into leather grips, or maybe just 2 overgrips!although I personally am not a big fan of that.
