HAT SIZES

Try on a hat in order to find out if it is your size, recommends Irina Sardareva. A hat may look gorgeous, but feel too loose or to tight. If this is the case, you will most likely not wear it for a long time, since you wont feel comfortable with it, says the hatmaker.

This is why it is important to choose the correct size for you. How to determine the size of a hat? The size of the hat is the circumference of a person's head in centimeters.

If you measure the circumference of your head right above the ears, at the level of the temporal bone, you will get the size of the hat that you wear. It will most probably be between 53 and 62 cm, which is the standard size of an adult head. If the circumference of your head is 56 cm then you wear size 56.

This is the French-size system for hat sizes that we use in Bulgaria. England and United States use different size systems.
