All about sizing!

 

Just look at this tiny bonnet babe in one of the bonnets that will restock tomorrow at 6 pm EST 😍 This bonnet is named Amber & it's a very loved floral in our community. I was lucky that we had enough material so I could keep a size up for Leia. She still wears her size 12-18s at 5 years old (she is VERY petite) 😅 but she is slowly growing gout of them 😩 I am trying to build up out 18-24 month stash...
.
So, on that note, let's check in about bonnet fit - our size ranges from NB to 2-4t & it’s always good to measure because our largest size fits ME! I chat all about it below so be sure to keep reading if you’re wondering what size you should go for this week👇🏻
.
On our FAQs page you’ll find a list of measurements & sizes, as well as a very old video of me measuring Leia's head 😆 I need to redo it! But I love seeing her tiny baby hands eat those M&Ms 🤗 When measuring do note that the bonnet won't fit perfectly until your baby reaches the full measurements in that size. If you're wanting a ruffle brim I recommend sizing up as those styles fit about 1/4” smaller than our trimmed danish style bonnets. Also, do keep in mind that our bonnets do run a bit big (2-4t fits me!) so please be sure to measure!
.
One more thing to keep in mind is my bonnets are all made from different materials, the weave of linen, tightly woven cotton, rayon fabric all have different ways of fitting on the head, just like with clothing. If you have a bonnet now that you LOVE the fit, I recommend sticking with that type of fabric. You can see all of the fabrics I use in the IGTV I've posted Monday. Thinner ones fit snuggly to the head, stiffer (oftentimes embroidered) have more structure to them. It's all in what you like, what design you're going for & what purpose the bonnet is serving (warmth or just an accessory)
