♥ I offer 4 different sizes:

ADULT, age 9-adult / 21-22 inch head circumference
ADULT XL, 23 inch head circumference or larger and most men
♥ Some notes about sizing:
Swim caps should fit snug. They may feel a bit tight at first, but they will get a bit looser with a few wears. The ages are estimates, it's better to pick a size based on head circumference. If you are between sizes or are worried about it being too tight, it's better to go up a size. It also depends on what type of swimming you will be doing. For lap swimming, kids on a swim team or in a swim class, it's best to go with the proper size. If you are looking for a loose fit, go up a size. If you need one simply to hang out in the pool without much actual swimming, a looser cap will be more comfortable. You may also want to go up a size for thick or curly hair. If you need help finding the right size, please contact me by clicking on the blue button labeled "Contact" on the side of the screen just under my logo.
Most of my child models are wearing the child size. My baby models are wearing the baby size.
♥ Some colors and prints will fade with exposure to chlorine and the sun, that's why I strive to keep my prices affordable. To prolong the life of your cap, rinse it in fresh water after each use.
♥ They can also be washed in cold on a gentle cycle and tumble dried. This swim cap is made of nylon/spandex swimsuit material and holds up nicely in the chlorine. I have been sewing, testing, and improving my swim caps for over three years. (Care for them in the same way you would a swim suit.)
♥ To put the cap on, have the tag go in the very back. Twist long hair into a pony tail, then start with putting the cap on your forehead and pull it down to the back of your neck. Twist any hair hanging down and shove it under the back of the cap. The fabric will be stretchy and can be pulled over your ears. It won't keep water out of your ears, but might help to hold in earplugs. My kids prefer to have their ears out, but some like to have their ears in. If you are helping your child put hers on, have her cup her fingers aroung the front of the cap and hold it to her forehead, then pull the back of it to the back of her neck, twist her hair, and shove it in.
♥ Some notes about Lycra swim caps:
There are 3 main types of swim caps, Latex, Silicone, and Lycra. I sell the lyrca style. None of these caps are designed to keep hair dry; their main purpose is to keep hair under control and out of your face. Lycra caps don't pull your hair like the other two styles. Some swimmers like to wear a lycra cap under a silicone or latex cap to keep their hair from being pulled.
These swim caps will not keep your hair dry if your head is being submerged underwater, but they will keep your hair out of your face and keep it from getting tangled in your goggles.
My swim caps also add fun to your swimming ensemble. I have lots of prints and solids available, please contact me if you do not see the print or solid in the size you need. I'm always trying to add more colors and prints.
