Hat sizes

Please measure your head circumference before choosing a fitted hat, bonnet or cap

This can be done by measuring around your head approximately 2" (5cms) above your eyebrows.

If in between sizes, it is always advisable to choose a size higher and leave yourself a little bit of room to breathe!

Adult Gown Sizes

Please choose a gown based upon your overall standing height. For example, if you are 5'5 (167cms) tall and of average stature, please chose the gown that is for someone of 5'3-5'6 (161cm-170cm).

If you are of a broader stature, please bear in mind that the bottom hem of the gown will sit a little higher as there is more fabric required to cover the body. Therefore, you may wish to choose a height increment above your standing height.

This guidance mainly applies to female wearers, who wear a dress size 18 (bust size 44') or over.
