Our garments are sized in letters from XS (Extra Small) to XXL (Double Extra Large). Please see our size chart below for an approximate guide to garment sizes. This chart should only be used as a rough guide and if you are unsure of any sizes we can provide samples on request prior to you placing an order (sizing samples must be returned before order an order proceeds to production).
> Sizing Considerations
Different garments have different types of fit. For example a Skinsuit is tight fitting (for less drag) and a Training Top is looser fitting (so it can be worn over a jersey or base layer). Most people will be familiar with this trend on specific items. Our sizing is based on a fit that suits the majority of our customers and is industry standard. If you have a specific preference for a very tight or loose fit (mostly relevant on Road Jerseys and Skinsuits) then we suggest you order a larger or smaller size as appropriate.
Extreme sized garments are available; XXS and XXXL sizes can be made on request. These items carry a 15% surcharge to cover the additional cost of them being specially cut to order. Altered garments are also usually available providing they are based on our standard sizes (i.e. a size Small Training Top with two inch longer sleeves). These also incur a 15% surcharge. It is important to tell us if any altered garments are required when ordering as we can usually accommodate this, however after garments are made it is often difficult (and costly) or not possible to alter them. Our cycle shorts/skinsuits have standard length legs that finish above the knee.
Our triathlon short/suits have shorter legs which finish higher than the cycle shorts (mid-lower thigh). The short leg versions of the triathlon shorts have legs which finish even higher (upper thigh). Our sizing guide above is only a guide and we would always advise that a sample garment be tested by a member of the club/team to ensure the sizes that you are ordering are the sizes that you are expecting. When placing an order we can supply sizing samples on loan. You can either call us to request these or email email@example.com with your club name/account number, delivery address and garments required. Sample swatch cards which contain cuttings from our range of fabrics can also be sent out on request. Before an order can proceed to production we require all sizing and fabric swatch samples to be returned.
> Garment Care
At Endura® we are very proud of the quality of our products . If looked after correctly the garments should last for several years. Many of our customers have items that are now over ten years old! All our garments come with wash care labels but in addition to this we advise the following; - Don’t leave wet/damp garments in a heap to dry (this can cause discolouration of custom print). - Don’t use fabric softener (this softens the fabric and loosens the fit, especially of tighter fitting garments). - Don’t wash any softer items along with open Velcro® catches (this can tear and bobble softer materials).
> Women’s Sizes
As shown on the opposite page, our garments are sized in letters from XS (Extra Small) to XXL (Double Extra Large). The sizes are based on standard male sizes. Our garments are unisex due to the high stretch and accommodation of the fabrics which means that women’s specifi c fi t items are not required. Because of this usually women take a size smaller (than they would if sizes were women specifi c). For example a “Medium” women may take a Small in our sizes. This is the general rule for tops, jackets and suits but on shorts usually a “Medium” women would take a Medium. This is only a guide and obviously varies hugely from person to person depending on your shape. As with men we would advise if you have not ordered before and are unsure of our sizes to request a sample from us to try on. Below is an additional chart which roughly equates our sizes to UK women’s dress sizes.
Extreme sized garments are available; Women who require a XXS (size 8) can get any item from our range but these items carry a 15% surcharge to cover the additional cost of them being specially cut to order.
> Women’s Specific
All our garments are suitable for men or women. On most of the garments (jerseys, jackets etc) the only difference would be in choosing the correct size. However there are more differences on other items; When ordering shorts/skinsuits, mark “W”after the code on the order form (i.e. “4015W” for Bibshorts). Any shorts that are marked as such will get a female specific pad. You can see our female pads on page 2. On triathlon vests and triathlon suits (items 3001, 3002, 3003 & 3006) when a garment is for a woman it not only has the female specifi c pad, but also gets a modified bust fit and an inner support bra/liner.
