Every single one of our straw hats is uniquely made, just like the people who wear them - which is why we wanted to share our hat size measurement chart and tips for measuring your own head in order to find the best fitting hat. The easiest way to do this is to find a soft, or flexible tape measure and start about a fingernail’s length above your eyebrows, in the middle of your forehead, and wrap the tape around the back of your head until it meets the other side of the tape on your forehead. Another way to measure your head is by using a ribbon, or a piece of string, and following the same method mentioned above, then taking that piece of string and measuring it with a ruler or standard tape measure. Once you have your head circumference measured in centimeters, you can reference our straw hat size chart to determine which size hat would work best for you. While we’ve done significant testing and research to determine the most common hat sizes for women, not every hat is one size fits all.
There are a few points to take into consideration: if you are in between sizes, you have thicker hair than most, or find many hats are too small for you, we suggest sizing up one size. A feature we were excited to have included in our latest collection of premium tripilla straw hats is an adjustable hat ribbon underneath the hat sweatband. When you pull the inner adjuster to tighten it, you’ll automatically create a more fitted space for the hat to sit comfortably on your head. For our customers with smaller head sizes, we do have some options available in our Mini Hat Collection that mirror our classic unisex styles just with a smaller hat circumference. If you have any questions about our hat sizing or would like some personal guidance, please feel free to leave a comment below, or email email@example.com, where we would be happy to help you find your perfect hat style and size.
