How Do I Choose My Size ?

Choosing the Correct Size: 

SUITS AND JACKETS. The measurements in the Tables should be used as 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 to pay for postage. 

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