Shopping for the right sun hat size can be a bit tricky if you have what’s considered to be a large head in hat fitting. That’s why I’ve put together a quick list of sun hats for ladies with large heads.
The normal size for hats tend to fall within a head circumference of 52-58cm.
If you fall within the range of 59.7-60.6 cm or 23.5-23.875 inches then your head size is considered large.
Some hats are classed as “one size”. While this should normally imply that anyone could wear such a hat, it’s not usually the case. One size hats tend not to go higher than 58cm. For someone who has a larger head circumference it really isn’t one size is it?
Even when you manage to find an adjustable one size hat, you’ll quickly find that they don’t adjust beyond the one size range.
When shopping for a sun hat, pay attention to the description because sometimes the term “large” can be in reference to the brim size.
If you have a large head then what you want is a large circumference and not necessarily brim size.
Before going shopping for a hat it’s important to measure your head first.
Measure around your head at the point at which your hat normally rides (approximately 1” above your ear). If your measurement falls between two hat sizes, always go with the larger size.
Some hats have inbuilt adjusters to make them fit properly. If you’re shopping for a larger hat than your head size then it may be a good idea to buy a hat that’s adjustable.
If you have taken your measurement and determined that you need a large hat, then you’re in luck. I have already done the hard work of combing through the internet to find some cute sun hats for ladies with large heads.
