Regular, Slim, Husky, Plus sizes in USA May 23, 2016
In the United States, children's sizes usually run from size 0-3months through 16. Children's clothing sizes may come in slim (S), regular (R) and plus/husky (P/H) after the numbered size. Generally speaking, children’s clothing sizes correspond to age.

For low priced children’s clothes, Walmart, The Children’s Place, and Old Navy are some of the places that have Brick and Mortar stores nationwide in the US. For mid-priced children’s clothes, Gap Kids and Baby Gap (size 0-16) and Gymboree (size 0-12) are two well-known brands. For mid-range girls’ fashionable clothes, Justice is very popular. For premium children’s clothes, Janie and Jack (up to size 8) and Abercrombie Kids (size 4-16) are reputable brands having physical stores nationwide.

Junior clothing sizes: Generally run from size 0 and goes up in odd numbers (0, 1, 3, 5, 7 etc). Usually the target market is 13-25 year old females. Example brands: Hollister and Alloy Apparel.

Women's clothing sizes: Generally run from size 0 and goes up in even numbers (0, 2, 4, 6, 8 etc). Usually the target market is age 17 and older. Women's clothing may come in Petite, Regular and Tall variants (denoted by "P", "R" or "T" after the number size). Generally speaking,

Petite is suitable for statures of 162cm and shorter.

Regular is suitable for 163-170cm.

Tall is suitable for 171cm and above.

Women's Plus sizes: Usually run from size 12 and up. Speciality clothing shops such as Lane Bryant and Torrid only carry women's plus sizes.

There is some overlapping between children's, junior's and women's sizes. A children's girl's size 16, a junior's size 7 and a women's size 4 are all about the same size.

Women's US size = UK/AU/NZ down 2 sizes. e.g. US size 6 = UK size 10. Although a UK size 10 is supposed to be the equivalent of a US size 6, I have found that a US size 6 is usually bigger than a UK size 10 due to vanity sizing.

As clothing sizes and fits may be slightly different between brands and pieces, it is best to try on the clothing before purchasing. When purchasing online and unsure about the size you need, the best solution is to refer to the size chart/guide provided by the retailer.
