To allow the elastic to stretch & stay in place our standard elastic length is 20 inches.
We are able to adjust this if requested to do so at the point of ordering.
The fabric of our bonnets, when opened out, is circular and therefore measured by it's diameter.
Our standard adult bonnet is approximately 22 inches, which is ideal for mid- long length, medium thickness hair.
If you have short hair a smaller 21 inch bonnet may be more suited.
We have XL & XXL sizes for thicker & longer hair.
Diameter of bonnets is displayed to ensure the correct size is selected. Once a bonnet has been made the diameter of the bonnet cannot be altered.
