Getting your workwear to fit

The following instructions provide advice on how to take accurate measurements for each part of the body to ensure full protection and a comfortable fit.

How to measure yourself

  • If you already have high visibility workwear that is comfortable after it has been washed, look in the label and the size and fit should be visible.
  • Alternatively simply follow the instructions to the right and ask somebody to measure the key dimensions illustrated.
  • It is important to note that you should always measure around the fullest part whilst wearing the undergarments that you would normally wear for work.

Special measures

Should standard clothing not fit you, you may require a special measurement, in which case please place an order via the website by completing the Special Measure box when selecting your garments. The image below should help you decide which measurements you need to provide.

If you need further advice you can contact our Customer Service team by emailing info@ballyclarelimited.com or calling 0844 493 2808.
