  1. Gwyn

    I’ve just taken my gloves off (!) after an hour of deadheading, pruning very thorny roses, neatening lawn edges and transplanting wallflower seedlings. The gloves fit very snugly and are both comfortable and sensitive yet they offer protection against thorns and brambles. I had been using rubber gloves which made my hands sweaty and did not fit so snugly (I’ve cut the top of the left hand thumb off the last two pairs when deadheading because they are so loose!) My skin feels soft after taking the gloves off.

  2. Jane

    The gloves are very good. I use them for gardening and they offer an excellent protection to my hands. They have a very close fit which feels like a second skin allowing for full dexterity of my hands. No more soil under my finger nails! Good product.

  3. Roz

    I especially love the moisturising gloves & think these will really come into their own during the winter months when my hands are especially prone to dryness and soreness. Cool colours and look good too.

  4. Penny

    I’ve never been comfortable in gloves until I tried Active for my dry prone hands. I happily garden in these now and wouldn’t be without them.

  5. Carole

    Best gardening gloves I have ever used. Fit well and you can feel what you are doing and mine have lasted ages. Definitely recommend them.

  6. Rosemary

    Having worn the usual cotton gardening gloves for years I was amazed how comfortable these gloves were – felt luxurious! They are soft, snug and stretchable with a good fitting cuff. Great for lighter work but very hard wearing none the less. No more dirty nails for me since using these gloves! As an everyday gardener, my usual cotton gloves do not last very long but these gloves are as good as new after 3 months hard use. Have already bought a replacement pair.

    Very swift delivery and the gloves are just what I was after. Thank you very much!

  8. Jacqui (verified owner)

    These gloves are the best I’ve ever had the fact that they fit so well is a big bonus too thank you x

    And if you’re a gardener do treat yourself to the Maxiflex Moisturising Gardening Gloves. Fabulous.

    But the reason Lovelyhands stands out for me is Claire herself. She’ll go the extra mile to make sure the product you purchase is right for you.

    Keep safe and well Claire.

    These gloves have enabled me to do jobs that I couldn’t previously do. I have long term chronic tendonitis in my left elbow but wearing these gloves gives me the grip strength that I’ve lost. Actually managed to take 2 single bed mattresses from downstairs to upstairs (I’m 62) and could not have done this without these fantastic gloves. I have now purchased for my mum who has arthritis in her hands and refuses to give up gardening (and who can blame her) I know they are very much appreciated.

How to size your hands for great fitting gloves

  1. Print out the Hand-Size-Guide, lay it flat on a table. Lovely Hands – Final Hand-Size-Guide
  2. Standing up, place your right hand over the blue hand outline, follow the written instructions, and keep your fingers together not splayed. Note the size number suggested and look for this in the ‘select a size’ option on the product page. Manufacturers recommend rounding up the size if you are in between.
  3. Other factors to bear in mind;
    1. If you are tall you tend to have hands needing the larger glove sizes.
    2. If your fingers are long or chunky this may also necessitate a larger size.
    3. Depending on how stretchy the fabric you may get a better fit in your lower size.

Stretchy gloves –

Ladies & men’s – Maxiflex Elite, Active and Ultimate, Showa 370, 341, 306.                    Ladies               –Tegera 90066, 90068, 90065

My personal example;

The blue outline suggests I am between a size 6 and 7, closer to the 6.

In stretchy gloves where I want to have my fingers right down to the ends I wear a 6. In leather gloves that do not have so much stretch I wear a 7. I have slim fingers.


Men – please see the table of men’s hand measurements for each individual glove on the product pages.


If in any doubt contact me or order a selection to try on at home. Returning goods is easy, please see the policy.


Lovely hands glove size guide
