How to know what is the right size for you

You have to measure the circumference of your head approximately one centimeter above the ear.

You will need a tape measure and a mirror for this.

Find the widest point of your head. At the lower back of your head you will feel a slightly increased bony part of your skull, just above your soft neck tendons. At the front the widest point is above your eyebrows. Put the tape measure around these two points. Don’t pull it too tight around your head, otherwise your headgear will then also be as tight and uncomfortable. The tape measure should rest about one centimeter above your ears.

If you don’t have a tape measure you can use a twine or a shoelace. Measure your size in the same way, then measure your piece of string against a ruler (bigger is better).

The measurement obtained corresponds to the size. Consult the table below to find out which one is best for you.

In assessing the appropriate size, the following points must be taken into consideration:

  1. For a Fitted model, the correct size is even more important, because it has no elastic and it cannot be adjusted. It is better to have a slightly larger fit rather than a too tightly fitted one.

  2. The Stretch Fit model is stretchy, but here too, it is always better if it’s slightly loose rather than too tight.

  3. If you have a lot of hair you will have a higher tolerance in terms of comfort, your hair acts as a natural shock absorber.

  4. If you have shaved hair or are bald, you need to calculate your measurement precisely, because you will have less tolerance in terms of comfort. You can go from a tight to a loose feeling within the span of a several millimeters.

  5. Knowing the shape of your head is also helpful. It can be oval or round. The heads of most Westerners and Easterners are different. Westerners, looking at their heads from above, mainly have an egg shape, while most Easterners have a shape more similar to a circle. While you may be from a totally different region, we advise that If you have a more circular shaped head, you should consider a larger size.
