To help you choose the correct size, please use the guidelines below.
 

How to Measure guidelines
 

  • For the best fit please use a tape measure: We want our beekeeper clothing to feel comfortable, so no need to pull your tape measure too tight. Our range has been designed to be worn on top of your clothes so they have been designed with that in mind.
  • Main areas to check is your height and chest measurement. Height is very important as you need to be able to bend forwards to tend to your bees with ease. Chest and hips – we have elastication sewn into the back of the suit to help our suits fit a range of shapes and sizes.
  • The measurements below are as the garments are lying flat. To assist in your choice we have taken many of the measurements with the garments lying flat – if it helps - lay out a shirt and pair of trousers and grab a tape measure. If you are in any doubt as to what size you should choose or if you are on a borderline and are a slim fit go down a size, if you are a large build it may pay go up a size.
  • Unisex garments. Please remember these garments are for men and women so if you are normally a large or x large do check the size chart as a standard men's size is quite different to a standard women's size.
  • The measurements below are in cm's except 'To fit chest' where you will find it in inches - this is one of the main measurements you look at to make sure the suit fits you ok - plus of course check out the height column.
  • Please take a moment to select the correct size. But in the event you do choose the wrong size - simply let us know and before you know it - you will have a replacement!

If you have any questions about the sizes of clothes please contact us we will be happy to help.
