What size hat is one size fits most?

In most cases, this refers to a women's hat and will fit around 57cm. If it were a men's hat or a unisex hat, this would mean the hat should fit up to 59 cm. Remember, hat manufacturers vary and you should always refer to the sizing chart for each company, when available.

What size head does an XL hat fit?

Up to 61cm, or 24” circumference.

What hat size is 23” (58.4cm)?

Large.

I don’t have a measuring tape, can I guess my size?

If you absolutely must order without knowing your size, the best way to sort of guess is to try on a normal hat and see how much more room you would need, fingers wise. Each finger is generally about 2 cm. The difference for most people between each size, or 2 cm, is one finger width.

How To Measure For A Hat?

  1. First, Measure Your Head Circumference
To measure your head circumference, take a sewing measuring tape or even a string, and wrap around above the ears and across your eyebrows. Please stick your finger under the tape so there is a little room and there you have head circumference! If you fall between measurements go for the next size up. Record your measurement in centimeters, if possible for the most accuracy. If you used a string, match it to a measuring tape.

 

  1. Find Your Hat Size with the corresponding size on the hat chart
It is known that different suppliers do in fact follow different sizing metrics. So, the chart, although universal, may vary from one hat maker to another.

 

Many companies provide unique sizing charts for each of their hats. We try to have as many of these charts across all our sun hats. Despite that, we decided to take this a step further and offer the closest thing to a universal metrics system that caters to both men and women. That said, and without further ado, please find below the hat sizing charts along with instructions on how to measure your head circumference in order to determine which hat size to go with.
