One fact you can be sure of - no two heads are the same! ALWAYS measure your child's head before purchasing to ensure getting the accurate size. Check out our video of tips (and some tricks) to help you measure your little one!

STEP 1: Distract the child with a toy or food (so they don't try to help you!).

STEP 2: Use a measuring tape to take the measurement. Otherwise, use a ribbon to take the size then use a ruler to find the measurement.

 ORIGINALS and SWIM collections:
Choose a hat size closest to your child's measurement. These fabrics are very stretchy and will grow up to 4cms. For example: the child's head measures 41cms, you will need the 42cm size that will stretch another 4cms up to 46cms - giving plenty of future wear. Purchasing the next size up would be too large and block the child's vision.

HERITAGE collection: Heritage's woven fabric cannot stretch quite as much. We suggest purchasing a size larger to allow extra room for growth if wanting a longer length of fit. For example: for the Baby Flap Hat, if a baby's head measures 38cm, you will need the 42cm size - giving plenty of future wear. Please note: each style of Heritage has a different example in the Size Advice and Brim Depth tab under the product description to give you more guided advice.
