I'm 5'1". I've only been beekeeping for a couple of years (this will be my 3rd summer) and didn't want to spend alot of money in the beginning. I spent about $5 at Home Depot on a disposable tyvex type painters overalls. They're still going strong. I use velcro straps at the ankles, but they could easily be tucked into socks (of course, you can easily just cut the bottom off if it's too long), and I wear elbow length gloves, so there's no problem at the wrist.
