Expert Santa Suit Size Advice

Santa Suits are different than regular clothing. The jackets are sewn large to accommodate the Belly Padding that gives Santa his jolly round shape. The Santa pants are cut short to tuck into Santa's tall black Santa Boots. Just because you wear a 2XL shirt doesn't mean that a 2XL Santa Suit will fit well. Most likley, the Santa Jacket will be too big. So, how do you determine the correct size Santa Suit?


1. Find a Tape Measure.

Wrap a tape measure around your chest. If your belly is larger than your chest, measure your belly instead. The idea is to measure the thickest part of your body to find the right size jacket. Next, add 4-6" for comfort so the Santa Suit doesn't feel too tight when sitting or moving around.


2. Decide if you'll wear Belly Padding?

If you plan on wearing Belly Padding, add 8 inches.


3. Add the numbers and Match to our Size Ranges.

Example 1:

John measures his chest at 54 inches. He adds 5 inches for comfort. This totals 59 inches. He compares this to our Size Ranges (shown to the right of the Buy buttons on each Santa Suit page). For the Professional Santa Suit, the 59 inches falls within the range of the size Large (44-62 inches). He buys the size Large SH9191 Professional Santa Suit.

Example 2:

Bill wants to wear Belly Padding. He also measures his chest at 54 inches. He adds 5 inches for comfort. He then adds 8 inches for Belly Padding. His total is 67 inches. He compares this to our Size Ranges for the Professional Santa Suit. The 67 inches falls within the range of the size X-Large (60-68 inches). He buys the size X-Large SH9196 Professional Santa Suit.


Should I measure my waist? Will the pants fit?

The pants included with the Santa Suits have elastic waistbands. The waist measurement of the pants are in proportion to the chest. There is a fairly large range of adjustment in the pants. You should only be concerned if you have a pretty good size waist. To make sure the pants will fit, check the waist measurements for you particular Santa Suit. They're shown at the bottom of each Santa Suit page and are repeated below.


Do Not choose your Sant Suit Size by your t-shirt size!

Our Santa Suits reference typical letter sizes of L, XL, 2XL and 3XL. These are manufacturer references only. If you wear a size 2XL t-shirt, it's highly unlikely that you'll wear a 2XL Santa Suit. If you follow our 3 Step process, you'll find a great fitting Santa Suit. If you'd like some help, call us at 800-560-2319.
