Safety and comfort of work wear is defined by the materials used and fit of the garment. The ergonomic fit of work wear is highly dependent on body size. It is noticed, that comparing to old body size data bases, human body has changed and new tables are to be developed. In this work contactless automatic 3D body scanning procedure was employed, which generates set of 152 measurement data in just 15 seconds, and also portable device. Significance of each measured point for garment design and comfort of wearer is defined by the type and functional purpose of garment. Based on types of most common work wear twenty-four body measurements were chosen as the important for being analysed in depth. Almost 550 work wear end users from chemical industry in Finland, military in Estonia and Latvia and construction workers in Poland were scanned. Obtained database allows for identification of typical and untypical silhouettes and arrangement of them in new dimensional ranges. Comparison of workers body dimensions with measurements of their work wear shows disparities on right adjusting of clothing for worker’s silhouette. The results of individual measurements shows significant relations with each other which should be considered at creating new size charts for work wear.
