HOW DO YOU SIZE WORKWEAR? [SIZE CHART & MEASUREMENT GUIDELINES INCLUDED]
Maximum comfort and ease of movement are an absolute must when it comes to industrial garments. To achieve that, you need to know how to size your workwear properly.
Start measuring from the top, i.e. neck, shoulders and chest to the sleeves. Then, go further through to the waist and down to the leg to work out what size workwear fits you best. Use a flexible tape measure and don’t pull it too tight.
Take the necessary measurements depending on the clothing item you need. For example, measuring your neck size is completely irrelevant if you’re getting a new pair of work pants, but it’s necessary for ordering the right size for your new high visibility work shirt.
Workwear sizes differ from manufacturer to manufacturer or between brands. However, there are several essential guidelines based on actual body measurements you can follow to determine which size is correct for you.
