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.
