HAT SIZING GUIDE
Where sizing is important there will be a selection of headsizes to choose from.
If there is not a drop down menu option for 'Head Size' in the product description,
you can tell us your headsize in the NOTES box for that product.
Each piece is made individually so we can adjust sizes to fit on request.

MEASURING YOUR HEAD
Take a measuring tape and place it around the circumference of the head, slightly above the eyebrows and ears. Wrap tape gently around head making certain tape lies on the little bump on the back of your head.
The tape should feel comfortable, not too tight and not too loose, just the way you want the hat to fit.
If your measurement falls between sizes it is better to choose the larger size.
SECURING YOUR HAT
Many of the hats and headpieces in the online shop are secured with an elastic and/or have small pinning loops, or are mounted on a hairband.
Elastic: If there is not a drop down menu option for 'Head Size' in the product description, you can tell us your headsize in the NOTES box.
Hairband: All hairbands are a standard headsize.
To ensure a perfect look, we fit hat elastics and hairbands in a selection of colours to match your hair colour so they blend in. When ordering, you will be asked to choose the colour you wish in the drop down menu options.
POSITIONING YOUR HAT
Small cocktail, pillbox or perching hats should be positioned on the head about 1 finger's width above the eyebrow, any further back on your head and they will start to feel insecure. The elastic should sit just behind the ears, and sit under the hair, running round the back of the head. Make sure that you have all of your hair through the elastic so that the elastic doesn't slide against your hair.
Pillboxes which are designed to be worn on top of the head or on the back of the head will also be fitted with pinning loops.
Broad brimmed hats and trilbies/fedoras should be tilted forwards, but not so much that they obscure your vision!
