The full bee suits arrived. Plenty of pockets, robust zips with big ring-pulls on them for gloved fingers to grip, and not scary white.
When I opened the packet I was sure that XL would be waaaay too big for me. They looked enormous - made me think of the bit from ET with the guys in noddy suits.
However, once on, they are pretty much the right size, though a bit short in the inside leg department (tight around the crutch, to be precise).
To give you a rough idea, I am 6 ft 1 in (1m85 to metric monkeys), almost 15 st (95kg). In future I will order one size up; I had forgotten that I am normally wearing jeans underneath. Or possibly I have a distorted body image...
Great piece of kit, and the service from BBWear was very good. http://www.bbwear.co.uk
