Thick cotton beekeeper suits and other personal protective equipment can offer excellent protection against bee stings, but are not 100% effective. It’s important beekeepers exercise caution when tending to their hives and are comfortable with the fact that sooner or later, all beekeepers get stung. Some people have severe allergies to bee stings, so please be aware of the potential hazards, especially to children, when considering whether children should be allowed near bee hives.

Children should always be supervised by an experienced adult beekeeper.

What bee suit size should I pick?

Beekeeping Suit Organic Cotton Kids

Bee suits are meant to be worn over normal clothing, so so we suggest you pick 1 or 2 sizes bigger than you normally wear.

NOTE: This sizing chart below are measurements of the suit fabric itself.  In order to properly use this chart you would need to compare the chart to your own body size measuring over the top of your clothing and include additional length for movement.  

WHEN MEASURING YOUR OWN SIZE, MEASURE OVER CLOTHING AND GIVE PLENTY OF ROOM TO MOVE AROUND. BEEKEEPER SUIT OVERALLS ARE WORN SLIGHTLY BAGGY OVER YOUR CLOTHING SO CHOOSE A SIZE WHICH WILL GIVE YOU PLENTY OF ROOM TO MOVE AROUND.

It is generally recommended that you consider sizing your beesuit overalls a bit larger size than normal clothing in order to accommodate wearing clothes underneath and for loose fitting. The most important measurement on sizing is 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. The next important measurement to consider is the "waist band circumference" which is an elastic waistband. You will want the elastic waistband to be fitting your individual size. When gathering your measurements, also consider wearing clothes especially a sweater/jumper if you think you will need to wear this type of clothing under your suit when managing your hive.

Slightly larger than your normal sized clothing will be preferred as you DO NOT want your beesuit to be tight fitting. Beekeeper suits are not tight fitting fashion items and the best fitting beekeepers suit is slightly baggy. It is the loose fitting cotton material that keeps you from getting stung by angry bees. Beekeeper suit sizes DO run slightly larger than your normal clothing to account for this needed baggy fitting already. However, it is also recommended that you consider selecting a larger size if right on the edge of two sizes.

Sizing Example: A typical male 183cm / 6 feet tall and weighing 80kg / 175 pounds will fit both a Medium or Large sized beekeepers suit. However when wearing the tighter fitting size medium simple tasks such as bending over the hive may make the suit tight fitting or lift the ankle cuffs up over the top of your boots. Therefore a LARGE would be the preferred size.
