HOW TO CHOOSE YOUR PERFECT SIZE SUIT

Unlike regular everyday clothing, the fit of a beekeeping suit needs to be loose to give you ample room for your body to move around, when lifting brood and super hive boxes.

A loose fit will also have the added bonuses of creating gaps between you and the suits fabric; that will make it hard for bees to make contact with your skin, thus sting you; and allow air to flow through the suit and helping to keep cool.

Bee suits are therefore design this way, to be fitted enough, not to be bulky, awkward, and roomy enough to move, even with a honey belly.

1) The first measurement you need is your Collar to Ankle as this will determine the length of suit you need. Do worry about your height, as the veil will fit you perfectly, designed to give full motion of your head and neck, without comprising visibility. There is no need to be worried about your neck, and the suit is fitted with a large collar, so should you neck touch the back of the veil, bees won’t be able to sting you.

Example: I’m 6’1” and measure 63” Collar to Ankle, so at this point could wear the Medium, Large or even the Extra Large.

2) Then measure you Collar to Crotch and your Inseam. This is to make sure the length of suit you have selected fits your torso and legs, without pulling on your crotch when you need to crouch.

Example: I measure 34” Collar to Crotch at this point, so I could wear the Medium or Large (the Extra Large would be massive on me).

As our bee suits have elasticated waist, the chest and waists have quite a wide range. 2 inches +/- what is listed.

3) Then measure your Chest and Waist, mine is 41” Chest and 35” Waist, so the Medium and Large Chest & Waist size range covers my body shape.

As a general rule of thumb, as clothing measurements are from a flat outfit, it is recommend that you add 2 inches to your measurements to take into account that we have shape and form.

Example: I fit very well with the Medium suit, but the Large gives me a lot for room to move. Having worn both, I would choose the Medium jacket and the Large suit (I have long legs).

Example: My wife is 5” 5’. Her Collar to Ankle measure is 34” whilst her Collar to Crotch is 27”. She measures 35” Chest and 28” Waist. The Extra Small suit fits her perfectly.
