How to tell what size coveralls to wear?
Finding comfortable coveralls is very important for workers to perform their jobs. Be sure to measure your chest, waist and inseam for accurate sizing.
Of all the different types of work clothes out there, overalls are some of the most comfortable. Designed as a one-piece garment, they pack loosely over clothing, making it easy for workers to put them on and take them off. Coveralls are used by workers in line of work such as:
Coveralls have the ability to protect virtually the entire body, from wrists to ankles. Some versions even come with hoods to protect the head. In combination with the right helmet, gloves and work boots, they offer complete protection.
Different manufacturers have different methods of measurements. As comfortable coveralls are meant to be, it is important to know which size suits you’re the best and wouldn’t come in the way of your productivity and safety. To determine which size fits the best, there are certain guidelines and critical measurement that could help you narrow down your selection. Here are some of them:
Measuring your coveralls
Place the tape measure around the fullest part of your chest and over your clothing, holding it under your arms and around your shoulder blades.
Measure around the waist, above the shirt at the height you normally wear your pants. Keep the tape as tight or loose as you want your pants to fit.
Measure the inseam from the base of the crotch to the top of the shoe to be worn.
Measure your neck by holding the tape measure around your neck, add a few inches for comfort and movement.
Keep your arm raised with your chest, slightly bent at the elbow. Measure from the bottom of the collar to the center of the back around the elbow to the end of the wrist bone.
