I am looking for coveralls to wear while working in our automotive shop. I am 5 ft tall and 105 lbs. Any suggestions?

Answers from the Automotive Experts

Amy Mattinat, Owner and Author at Auto Craftsmen Ltd Hi Nadine, YES, I have a great resource for coveralls. I have a pair and LOVE them! Oh, and I am 5*4" and weigh 110 lbs. and they fit just right!

Bogi Lateiner, Owner and Technician at 180 Degrees Automotive Hi Nadine! Finding automotive coveralls for women is always a bit of a trick. I no longer wear coveralls, but when I did I always found I could special order a small or even extra small mens set. (I*m 5*2 and 120) I like Dickies, but there are lots of brands. Do a search online for women work coveralls. If you shop uses a uniform company ask them, also if they are requiring coveralls (as opposed to shirt and pants) they should help you find them. I prefer working in separates - I find coveralls limit my movement more. But what ever works for you! I have yet to find a set of good mechanic coveralls designed specifically for women. If you do - let me know! Sorry I wasn*t more help. Bogi

Lori Johnson, Owner and Instructor at Ladies Start Your Engines Dear Nadine, As a technician the same size as you, I know this can be challenging. I wore them for a while when I was in school and it seemed like everything had to be rolled up. I gave them up because I felt restricted in them. Of course the pants and shirts from the uniform company were not much better. I did some research and here's what I found...good luck! Check out the shoes on this've got to be kidding me :) Call the companies if you have any questions. Lori Johnson
