Gap Kid’s Size Charts for clothes, apparel, accessories and shoes

The bodies of kids grow differently. Kids come in all shapes and different size ranges. Gap knows this and has included it in their calculations. Husky pants and Husky shirts are for kids with larger limbs and fuller torsos. To use the Gap Kid’s size chart for your larger kid, go one size higher on the scale. If the large child no longer fits on the scale, then consider the lowest adult sizes. The slim size chart is also in existence, for slimmer kids. This is just a clothing size made with measurements from the reg size chart and some accessory to help cater for a smaller size. Such accessory could be an elastic bands or inner hooks.

Gap’s Size Chart For Boy’s And Girl’s Bottoms (Pants, Jeans, American Khaki, etc)

The bottoms chart of the two genders are different only because the boys bottoms are not affected by the hip measurements. Some bottoms and jeans mimick slim pants and come with adjustable waists because of children with a narrower waist. These fashionable jeans are just classic jeans with button placement and elastic bands. Another product to be aware of are low-rise pants. Again, imagine the classic jeans but this time with shorter sleeves that stop above the ankle. Many of these type of pants are shallow in the crutch and even have a light pocket or two.
