Like bodies, heads come in all shapes and sizes - and hair is a whole other factor! Rather than just grabbing the S/M/L you might normally get for your other clothes or choosing a hat by age range, take a few minutes to measure the head to get the perfect fit. Our Heritage hat sizing is in size ranges to allow for growth in children, and hair styles or personal taste in adults.
Check out our video of tips (and some tricks) to help you measure your little one or yourself for our Heritage hats!
A little bit whimsical, a whole lot adorable, our classic-style bonnets are for those who love yesteryear style. Featuring soft but sturdy felt in the brims, our bonnets protect and highlight those cute faces.
For the girliest of girls, this new bonnet is old-school style for modern bubs. The generous brim is ruffled to frame sweet faces, while the long ties keep it in place.
From newborns to toddlers, our reversible legionnaires sit snugly on the head thanks to adjustable ties at the back. Elasticated chin straps keep hats in place by tying sweetly in a bow under little chins.
We couldn’t help making cute things even cuter, so added bear ears to our reversible flap hat! In three colour varieties, the reverse is a flax colour without ears for the best of both worlds: regular and Teddy!
For the fans of broadbrims, but with oodles more style! This hat generously covers shoulders and chests, while the extra wide brim can be turned up to show off the reverse and still be sun safe!
Shapely and stylish with a deep panelled crown, sun protection has never looked so great. Long linen ribbons tie up into a bow to create the perfect fit, and to keep hats on heads!
Our classic bucket style features a tapered crown with horizontal band and sweet stitch detailing on the brim. They’re so lightweight, kids will barely even notice they’re wearing a hat!
Steps to success!
Step 1: Distract!
If measuring a child, distract them with a toy or food (so they don't try to “help” you!)
Step 2: Measure
Use a measuring tape to take the measurement. Otherwise, use a ribbon to take the size then use a ruler to find the measurement. You need to measure where the hat sits on your head – so from the nape of the neck, up to where your hairline meets your forehead (see yellow line in image). Mark the spot and measure the entire length of the marking to find the head circumference in centimetres.
Step 3: Choose a hat style
Lounger/Teddy Flap Hats, Explorer Classic Bucket, Wanderer Panelled Bucket, Sightseer Wide Brim Bonnet: Choose the hat’s smallest measurement closest to your child's head measurement. These styles all have adjustable ties in the crown to get the perfect fit to your child’s head size with a 4cm range in each hat. By choosing the smallest size of the range, you will get the most wear out of it. If your child’s head measures 47cm, you will want the 46-50cm hat to ensure plenty of future wear. If your child’s head is measuring 49cm, it’s best to go to the 50cm-54cm as you can pull in the ties to make the hat size 50cm. This applies for adult adjustable styles taking into account hair thickness and desired styling.
Seeker/Searcher Bonnets: These styles are not adjustable so it’s best to choose a hat size with the smallest measurement closest to the head measurement of your child to allow for growth.
TIP: It's best for babies to learn to wear hats from birth, before motor skills develop.
