Benefits of wearing 100% cotton
Helps remove and absorb body moisture, drawing heat away from the skin and keeping the body cool and dry. Cotton can easily take 20 percent of it’s weight in water before it actually feels damp.
Cotton and allergies
Cotton fabric rarely causes allergic reactions and wearing cotton is often recommended for those with skin allergies because cotton is hypoallergenic and does not irritate skin.
Cotton has a high tensile strength, making it strong, durable, and less likely to rip or tear. It is 30 percent stronger when wet.
General guide to choosing the best uniform size for you
When choosing your uniform size consider the following: Height, Build and Shrinkage*
For example, if you are 180cm tall and an average build you should fit a 5/180 uniform. If you are a thin/lean build then you should consider a 4/170 uniform. If you are a solid/stocky build then you should consider a 6/190 uniform (it’s OK if the ties do not pull shut completely). Please note that in some cases you may need to alter the length of the sleeve and pant.
