ALL FOAM CLOTHES ARE WORN AS UNDERWEAR. YOU MUST WEAR A JACKET OR WINDBREAKER OVER TOP.
All foam clothes are sewn with an industrial walking foot machine or an industrial serger. The lining is tricot with the outer mesh covering. Everything is a synthetic material--polyester or nylon. Mesh has holes in it, the wind goes right thru it, which is why it handles moisture so well, the moisture from your body goes out to the cold. So you must wear an uncoated windbreaker over top.
Women's jackets are made with Princess seaming which means there is an extra fitting seam along the bust line that fits to your body much better than a straight front.
The back also has a Princess seaming.
The sleeves and hems are finished with the mesh covering the raw edges. Using a serger at the hems of foam and lining allows for a smooth finish, then the mesh is turned under.
The collar finishes off the neckline and in a 1 inch jacket, the collar is made with 1/2 inch foam so that it is much more comfortable to wear.
The sleeves in a one inch jacket are made from 3/4 inch foam so you have much more movement range.
For a woman with a large bust, we usually add a webbing strap under the bust, as that allows for a better fit and doesn't allow cold to get up there.
The back of the jacket is longer than the front, so when you bend, the cold doesn't go up your back.
Women's pants have a seam down the back of the fanny, that allows for a better fit. Very comfortable.
The waist has a drawstring in it to pull it tight. There is a fly front with snaps.
Since sitting down pulls on the knee material, there is extra foam and fabric in the front legs for knees.
When measuring, don't wear jeans, as they add about 5 inches to your size. Foam clothes are to worn as underwear, so measure over your undies.
Your jacket must fit over your hips PLUS the foam of your pants, so extra is added at the width of the hem of jacket.

At the crotch area, there is a diamond shaped gusset that keeps 4 inches of foam seams from gathering at that particular area.

If you have a large belly, then I need to know that, so the front can fit over and below it.
If you wear your pants below your belly, then I need to know that too, so i can fit your properly.

There is a D ring at the wrist that is for attaching a snap lock on a cord, which is attached to your outer wind breaker (under the sleeve) so that you could drop your mittens and wouldn't lose them. This is especially nice for children.
