Just look at these two pumpkin cuties! 🎃 I have had the honor of making these two sisters from @candacemayyyy MANY a bonnet over the years & it's been so amazing to watch them grow. I see the orders come through each week & I do take note of what size people get - which means I also notice when people size up ❤️ It's bittersweet really - we love our return customers yet the time is flying as these little babes grow. So, if you're wondering which size to go for let's take the time to 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👇🏻
If you check out our "Frequently Asked Questions" page it is there that 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)
If you need help with sizing the members of our BST group are wonderful at figuring it out so don't be shy about asking for help there, they’re the best group of bonnet lovers you could ever ask for ❤️
