Do NOT just choose your regular lab coat size. These will fit differently. Measure!
How to measure: (Returns are not free, spend time on this!)
Using a tape measure or a string and ruler, measure the circumference of your body without pulling it tight. Wear your normal lab clothes and include those in your measurement.
Measure the widest part of your bust, under your armpits, with a big inhale.
Measure your waist, usually about 6-8 inches below your armpits.
Measure the widest point of your hips with your feet shoulder width apart.
Choose the correct size:
Below are the maximum measurements each lab coat size will accommodate. Make sure all 3 of your measurements are at or below these numbers. For a loose fit, go up one more size. The "Waist" numbers are before using the belt, which pulls in up to 8 more inches.
(centimeters) / 2.54 = inches
Lab coats are holding scientists back, and together we’re going to fix that. By listening to 1000+ scientists, we designed this white 100% cotton women's lab coat to solve these frustrations so that you can finally feel professional, confident, and safe every time you suit up. See Women's Size Chart Here.
*Expected to ship February 2024. Update or cancel any time.
If you're able, please consider adding a donated lab coat to your order! This helps us reach the goal faster, help scientists sooner, and we'll give these away to science educators and classrooms in need.
This lab coat is made from 100% cotton and all-metal snaps, which is accepted in most standard laboratory environments including introductory chemistry and biology lab classes. Please check with your lab safety officer for compatibility.
100% Cotton provides better protection against flames than polyester or poly-cotton mixtures because polyester will melt to your skin and prevent emergency lab coat removal. 100% cotton is not “FR”, “flame-retardant” or “fire-proof”, and will burn slowly if exposed to intense flames. If your lab requires “FR” lab coats, get on our email list for our future release with flame retardant materials.
Most lab coat materials, including 100% cotton, absorb strong acids and may develop holes from exposure. Always wear a neoprene, rubber, or PVC apron and long acid-resistant gloves on top of your lab coat when handling strong acids.
Save on shipping costs by ordering together with your lab.

How does the Pre-Order work?
This pre-order campaign needs to reach 600 total lab coats between the men's and women's styles to go to production, similar to a Kickstarter. That will cover about half of the ~$50,000 up-front manufacturing costs, and we’ll cover the rest. Your lab coat should ship about 5 months after we reach the goal. You can cancel or update your order at any time before we ship. See our pre-order policy page for more details.
Early supporters will save the most:
Superfan tier: First 100 lab coats are $42.50
Early mover tier: Lab coats 101-200 are $44.99
Last chance tier: Lab coats 201-300 are $47.49
The final price will be $49.95 and will never be discounted again.
190 sold of 300
To cover about half of the up-front production cost, we need to reach 300 lab coats of each gender pre-ordered by October 13th! This should let us ship them to you in February 2024.
This lab coat requires more stitching and material than any other lab coat out there, but we’ve managed to keep the price to less than half of designer lab coats.
We do this by avoiding expensive advertising, relying on all of you to grow the project by word-of-mouth, and selling directly online with low overhead.
We publish all of our costs so you know exactly what you’re paying for. All of our profits go to employing our staff and reinvesting in new colors, materials, and fits.
You like your skin. Let's keep it protected.
100% Soft Cotton Twill
A proprietary weave of durable, tightly woven, medium-weight cotton twill for protection. Finished with softening and stain-release non-chemical processes perfect for lab coats. It won't melt onto your skin like polyester.
Long knit cuffs
Soft rib-knit cotton cuffs gently hug your wrists to keep your skin protected as you reach for those chemicals in the back. Tapered forearm sleeves also help keep your lab coat out of your science.
All-metal stainless steel snaps that won't melt shut when you've got to get out quickly. Whether it's a fire, chemical explosion, or lunch time - no more messing around with unthreading buttons in a hurry.
Lay it flat for the classic look and pop that collar when it's time to get down to business. Protect your neck and chest from unexpected splashes and explosions.
How it fit our beta testers
Kristen, Chemistry Educator
"As a small woman, lab coats have never fit well. The sleeves are long and get wet, when rolled they get caught, the openings don’t line up with pockets in my attire, and the labs coats are never flattering. The Marie Lab Coat by Genius Lab Gear fixes all those problems with arm cuffs, invisible belts, and sizing that is made for my stature. It’s not only flattering, it’s crisp white and has so many amazing pockets and loops to solve problems I didn’t even realize I had! I can hold all my classroom supplies from small iPads to white board markers and it doesn’t feel clunky and I still look very professional."
Marc, Chemistry Educator
"I love my Louis lab coat. As a high school chemistry teacher I have more than enough pockets to keep track of the pens, stamps, etc is phenomenal. I love the cuffed sleeves and the belt that helps keep me from getting caught on lab tables as I move around the tables. I know the final version will only get better."
Hidden details that matter
Built for durability
Extra stitching at key stress points prevents tears and steel pocket zippers from top supplier YKK will help this last and reduce waste.
Easy to hang and Identify
Our tagless design reduces itchy-neck and makes YOUR lab coat easy to identify on the rack. A generous hanger loop prevents it from slipping off.
An extra low-profile double-loop lets you keep markers securely on your shoulder for easy access when you don't want them on your chest.
Keep your phone isolated
Don't let your phone interact with your contaminated tools. We added a nested front pocket perfectly sized for a phone, OR as a second location for our pocket protectors.
What happens after my order?
When we hit our goal of 300 lab coats of either the men's or women's styles, that style will begin production. From that date, it will be about 5 months until your lab coat is delivered.
If we can't pre-sell 300 lab coats of either gender, we won't have the funds to start manufacturing. In that event, every order will be canceled and fully refunded.
You can cancel or modify your order at any time before your lab coat is shipped. However, a large number of cancellations after production is started will put us into a lot of financial debt. Please only pre-order if you fully intend on buying this lab coat. That being said, unexpected changes happen. Read our detailed pre-order policy page here.
That's fine! Put in your current address or the permanent address of a family member. We'll send a reminder to update it before we ship. However, we're not responsible for shipping charges if your address is not updated in time.
We have detailed size charts to help you choose! Find them in the links above by the product photos.
We publish detailed size charts to make sure you find the right fit the first time. You just need to check it against your own measurements. However, the lab coats can be returned or exchanged if you cover the shipping and restocking cost (usually around $12 total in the USA).
We can take group orders to save on shipping costs and we can accept Purchase Orders for a minimum of 8 lab coats. We will also offer embroidery options before shipping. See our group orders page for more details.
You're amazing! For this project to succeed, we need to grow support without advertising costs. The two best things you can do are:
1) Link to this page from your website or tell your favorite blogger or university newspaper to get in touch about running a story. These help the page show up in Google when others are searching for lab coats.
2) Share this page on your social media pages, with a link if possible, or else with tagging us @geniuslabgear!

See the Men's version - "The Louis"
The men's version has all the same features shown above, but with a little wider shoulders and narrower below the hips. Order together with your lab mates to save on shipping costs.
It's time to bring Pocket Protectors back. We upgraded the thin plastic to stitched faux leather with an inner divider and sized it for the breast pocket of this lab coat. Don't let ink stains ruin your new lab coat!
