Choosing the Correct Size

Suits and Jackets. The measurements in the Table below should be used as a guide to selecting the correct size of garment for you. Remember you should wear the protective clothing over other clothing to ensure full protection. Therefore, the Waist measurement of the protective clothing should not be the measurement you normally use for selecting trousers. Add at least a couple of inches to your normal size to allow for any trousers worn underneath.   Better still, measure your waist and chest etc., whilst wearing clothes and then add a bit for comfort.  Finally, we strongly recommend you choose a size a shade on the large size to ensure comfort and maximum protection. We will of course offer a full refund or exchange if you select the wrong size. You only need pay for the return postage.

 * Height - is the maximum height of the beekeeper.  If the suit is too small for your height the hat brim will be pulled down if you look up.  Always go for a size a little on the large size if possible.

Tailoring - We do not offer a tailoring service as the customer needs to be measured by the tailor doing the work. for the best results.  However, if you cannot find a garment to match your shape they can be altered by any professional tailor.  If you are broad for your height we recommend choosing a suit over a jacket as a jacket with suitable breadth will also be long and will hang down around your legs, making a bee-proof seal difficult to obtain.  A suit can be readily shortened in the legs and arms without compromising safety.  Alternatively, if you require the garment to be let out please contact us as we can supply off-cuts of material.

Gloves. Gloves are sized by measuring across your four knuckles, not including the thumb, i.e. the width of the palm at its widest point. This distance in centimeters is your glove size. For example, if the distance measures 9cms then you need glove size 9.
