If you’ve always had issues with buying hats online, we created this article for you. Often hats that we buy online are too small for our hair and head.

It’s super frustrating because we waste a lot of money and time trying to find a hat that is inclusive and fits.

I have a big head (no pun intended) and thick wavy hair. It’s hard finding hats online because they are often too tight and costs money to return, which is a huge inconvenience if you have to pay a return fee or restocking fee.

If you have a big head, you would typically want a hat with a size 58cm or larger (8″ front to back and 7″ from side to side). This is equivalent to a large size in most hat brands.
