How to learn how to determine the size of caps
Any person, without much hesitation, will name the size of clothes or shoes that he wears. But the headgear is increasingly bought after fitting. And meanwhile the sizes of hats also exist. Do not believe me - check the label for any new product. How can you know your size and buy a hat that fits you perfectly?
We take measurements
It's not difficult to measure your own head. To do this, you will need a flexible measuring tape (such used by tailors) and a mirror. Zero end of the measuring device is applied to the middle of the forehead between the eyebrows, after which we wrap the skull until the tape returns to the starting point. Most likely, you have a value ranging from 53 to 58 centimeters. These figures are your size. If the indicator is slightly less or more, you should be glad of your uniqueness and prepare for a long choice of a suitable headdress. In our country, the size of caps and indicate in figures, but abroad things are different.
American and European sizes of hats
In the US, all clothing is marked with letters. The standard notations are S, M and L, of which S is the smallest and L is the largest. Accordingly, the smallest American size is the Russian 53-54, and the largest - up to 58 cm. In the American grid there are very large sizes of men's hats. For people with a head circumference of more than 58 cm, products with the XL marking are offered. But the variations typical for ordinary clothes of the largest size with a few X among the hats to find is not so easy. In European countries, the size of the headgear is in inches. If you make an order in an online store, be sure to use the matching tables.
It is most difficult to choose a hat for a child in his absence. Remove the measurements in advance, as well as from an adult. If you forgot to do this before going to the store, you can focus on the age of the baby. The size of the caps really echoes with the months and years of the child's life. For newborns under the age of two months, headdresses with a marking of up to 38 sizes are suitable. Figures 40-42 indicate the purpose of the caps for a child of 3-4 months. And so on. Usually on the product package there are tables of correspondence of sizes.
Secrets of the choice of hats
Now you know how to determine the size of the cap yourself. But what if there is no flexible measuring tape at hand? It will be replaced successfully by ordinary decorative braid or simple thread. Just like the measuring tape, we wrap our head around with this flexible material. After that, we measure with a ruler a piece of tape that was wrapped around the head. If the obtained girth is at the joint of two sizes, a larger one should be chosen. So when fitting: make sure that the headgear eraser does not leave any marks on the skin and does not press. You do not need to think that the hat will quickly stretch. Buying a close headdress can cause headaches and seriously damage your hair. For children (especially the smallest ones) it is worthwhile and at all to choose headgear for a size larger. Once you notice that the hat is worn with difficulty, you should consider purchasing a new headdress. Soft headwear can be purchased without fitting, focusing on the size of the caps. But hard hats are always recommended. This kind of headgear should ideally sit on you. Also of great importance is how far the chosen model and shape fit your face and figure. Caps also have several basic forms, and if you make an order through the Internet, it is preferable to choose headgear, similar to the ones you used to wear.
