Size Guide

A perfect fit not only ensures a flattering look and comfort, but also helps prolong the life of your garments. Wearers can be petite, regular or tall so we have made many garments in three height fittings. To avoid disappointment and to ensure you order garments that are the right size, please refer to the sizing chart below.

Professional tips for choosing the best size

  • Think about your working role and ensure that you can stretch and bend in the size you choose
  • Don't choose a smaller size on the basis you will lose weight - tight garments are uncomfortable and do not last
  • Over large garments can be a safety hazard if they drag on the floor or catch on obstacles
  • Ask someone else to measure you if necessary and ensure that you stand up straight
  • The chart below is based on your body measurements. Do not add to your measurements for ease of movement - we add this in the garment pattern.

Sizing and Issue Services

For organisations clothing a large number of staff or students we offer two options to assist sizing. Accurate sizing prior to order helps to ensure a good fit and a reduction in returns.

Full sizing sets can be created in your selected garments and offered on loan throughout the duration of sizing. We can also create bespoke sizing forms for your organisation to aid easy ordering.

Sizing/Issue Sessions:

For a large group, our experienced sizing team can offer a fully managed sizing session at your location, for up to 400 staff/students per day. We can then arrange to return to issue garments to individual wearers or despatch garments in the usual way. There is a charge for these services - please contact us on 01603 731330 for further details.

Sizing and Issue Services

We offer a number of packing options tailored to suit your organisation and aid distribution to wearers.

Standard packs – UK mainland: Garments packed into boxes and delivered using a national carrier service for next day delivery. All deliveries can be tracked via the Internet.
