Flow Beekeepers Suit - Sizing Charts

  • Organic Cotton Adult
  • Organic Cotton Kids
  • Mesh Suit
  • Mesh Jacket
  • Cotton Toddler

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:

  1. the torso, or 'nape to crotch' in the sizing chart shown below.   To properly calculate this measurement, measure your own body from the top of your shirt collar to about 15cm / 6in below the bottom of your crotch.
  2. the next measurement to consider is the “nape to ankle hem” and add about 15cm / 6in.
  3. Finally, measure the "waistband circumference" which is a part-elastic waistband. You will want the elastic waistband to be comfortable for your individual size, so please refer to the “relaxed” measurement plus enough extra room for ease of movement and comfort.

Bee Jackets 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 jacket fabric itself. 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 wrists to remain covered).

Be sure to give yourself plenty of room to move around. Beekeeper jackets 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 by cranky bees.

Important sizes are the 'waistband circumference' which is an elastic waistband indicating tight/stretched measurements. You will want the elastic waistband to fit your individual size, as it stops the bees crawling up if it is worn over and not tucked into pants. The ‘torso body length’ is also important - this will make sure your bee jacket waistband sits low enough to meet with your pants - and does not rise right up when lifting or reaching.
