Bee suits are designed to be worn over normal clothing, so we suggest you select 1 size larger than you normally wear.
NOTE: The sizing chart below provides measurements of the beekeeping suit fabric itself, not the body measurements. In order to properly use this chart you need to compare the chart to your own body size measuring over the top of your clothing and include additional length for movement (to allow ankles and wrists to remain covered).
Be sure to give yourself plenty of room to move around. Beekeeper suits are typically worn slightly baggy - you do not want these to be tight fitting. It is the loose fitting cotton material that keeps you from getting stung .
The most important measurement for sizing are:
nape to crotch
(top of shirt collar to 15cm below bottom of crotch
|nape to ankle hem||waist band circumference expandable range
(relaxed - stretched)
|nape to cuff||chest|

Beekeeping is a labour of love. As with all animal husbandry, it’s a pastime which requires knowledge, skill and dedication and which carries with it inherent risks.
Beekeeping suits and other personal protective equipment can offer excellent prevention against bee stings, but are not 100% effective. It’s important new beekeepers exercise caution when tending to their hives and are comfortable with the fact that sooner or later, all beekeepers get stung.
