In the weeks leading up to Halloween, we received lots of orders for DuPont 1414 Tyvek Coverall Suits. These make great costumes for everything from space explorers to hazmat clean up crews. Over the years we have seen some really creative uses! With all of these orders have come many questions about sizing.
This size chart is fairly straightforward, just find your height and your weight, and where the two intersect will be your size. It is important to keep in mind that if you are using Tyvek suits for industrial purposes you may want a little extra breathing room for moving around. For the purposes of a costume, you may want them to be a little more form fitting.
When discussing the sizing of Tyvek suits for the purposes of Halloween costumes, it is important to note that DuPont only makes adult sizes. They do not come in kid's sizes and the smallest size made is a small. That being said, we have had customers order the DuPont Standard 1412 Tyvek Coverall Suits to make kid's space suit costumes. This typically requires quite a bit of modification like cutting the arms and legs shorter and duct taping some of the extra material together. It is possible, just know that they are not made for kids.
When you receive your Tyvek suit order, you'll want to check the size.To do so, unzip the suit. Sewn into the seem will be a tag with the size printed on it. This way you know that you have the right size! Usually, our customers find that their suit fits well if they have ordered from the sizing chart.
If you have any further questions about sizing, feel free to contact us and ask! I hope you all had a happy and safe Halloween!
