Are Snickers workwear true to size?

When you’re working long hours throughout the day, it’s important that you get the right size and fit in order to make sure you are comfortable all day long. Thankfully, Snickers do run true to size. However, it is always best to measure first before you buy a certain size.

Listed below is a guide on how to measure to ensure you buy an accurate size:

  • Body length - Top of the head to the sole of your foot

  • Chest size - Chest width, horizontally at the widest point

  • Waist - Measure horizontally at belly button height

  • Lower waist - Width at the lower waist point of where you wear your trousers

  • Inside leg - Crotch to the sole of the foot.

These measurements are extremely important to take to ensure you find the correct fit. This is especially important for the likes of trousers in which the knee pads need to be in the right place.

How to safely wash Snickers workwear

Snickers always advise frequently washing clothing to help remove any dust and debris that could damage the fibres. Regularly cleaning also helps to remove any dirt or flammable materials that would compromise protective properties.

When you wash your garments in the washing machine, make sure to read the care labels first to ensure they are machine-wash safe. Make sure to close any pockets, zips, velcro straps and other fastenings to help prevent any damage.

When you’re washing garments with reflective strips, be sure to turn the clothing inside out as the reflectivity can be reduced every time the materials are washed. Try to use a gentle detergent in order to avoid the elastic in the fibres breaking down.

If possible, Snickers always advise drying clothes outside. However, clothes can be machine dried at a high temperature to retain their properties.
