What size Wellie should I get?
Traditional wellies are fairly tall, often reaching a height just below the knees, and they fit closely to the calves.

What do you wear under a Wellie?
Wellies look best with slim pants or trousers that create a clean line all the way down your legs. Choose slim fit jeans, slacks, or leggings that can fit seamlessly under your boots without bunching up at the top. Wearing your pants under your boots will also help keep your hems nice and dry.
