Looking For A "Light-Thin-Soft" Type Of Strings

Hey Everyone, I'm looking for a "light-thin-soft-strings" that's easy for fingers and bending. meaning not the "heavy-thick-hard-strings" as I'm only an intermediate player and my fingers still need some practice to increase strength, and besides I don't really play heavy music. In this case, what would be a good brand you guys would suggest for "light-thin-soft-strings" ?
BTW. it's for my "Fender 57 Reissue Stratocaster Made In Japan Since 1993 maple neck"

Any Help Will Be Highly Appreciated. THANK YOU. =D

What exactly do you mean by soft? I would recommend using 10-46 or something in between like 9.5-44 like D'Addario makes.

Does that answer your question?

Just stick with 9's then, 10's may seem thick, but stay away from DR or Dean Markley, as they are steel strings, and will feel tighter. Also, is your action on the guitar quite low?? May help ease the tension as well.
Gibson Les Paul Standard that's been to hell and back with me, Charvel Model 6 modded to a 5FX, tortex wedge picks, Maxon OD-9, 80's Ibanez AD-9, practice amp for now, don't ever get married and divorced
