My goal is to provide comfortable swim caps for people of all sizes in a variety of colors and prints. I make my swim caps out of the same type of fabric that swim suits are made out of. I have been selling swim caps for more than 3 years. Please check the notes on sizing before you order to be sure that you are ordering the correct size.

♥ For Regular caps I offer 4 different sizes:

BABY, age 0-2 / 16-18 inch head circumference

CHILD, age 2-8 / 19- 20 inch head circumference

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 left just under my logo.

-♥- FaNCy CaP sizing:

Fancy caps are sized differently than regular caps, The following chart is a guideline that may help you choose the proper size:

Infant - 0-6 months
Toddler - 6 months-2 years
Child - 2 years-10 years
Adult - 10 years and up

♥ 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. (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.

♥ Here are a few things people have said about my swim caps in my feedback:

About

The story of a swim cap

I grew up loving the water and loving to swim, whether it was in a pool, a lake, or the ocean. I was thrilled when my daughters loved swimming as well. From a tiny age I couldn't keep them away from wanting to learn to swim.

They have very sensitive, fine hair and the rubber caps were so harsh. I purchased one speedo brand lycra cap for my oldest, but my second daughter loved to wear it around the house. I knew that just one cap wasn't going to last long, but I wasn't pleased with the small selection of colors and designs offered by large commercial swim cap makers, so I thought I'd make a few since I loved to sew.

I made a few of them for us and a few to sell. I started getting requests for other sizes to fit babies, adults, and larger ones too. The rest is history.

I like to have a selection of caps to match any swimming ensemble. My swim caps keep the hair out of your face and your goggles from getting tangled in your hair, but they can be a fashion statement as well.

I have a lot of fun with my shop and I hope that you enjoy your visit.

FAQ

How long will it take to receive my order?

I have regular swim caps placed in the mail within 1 week, but it's usually much sooner.

Special orders or fancy caps usually take about a week until they are mailed.

Your order will be shipped first class through the USPS, which can typically take 3-7 days.


How do I put the cap on?

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.


Are there any special care instructions for my swim cap?

They can be washed in cold on a gentle cycle and tumble dried low heat or line dry, line drying is preferred. 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.)

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.


How are Froggie's caps different from the rubber kind?

There are 3 main types of swim caps, Latex, Silicone, and Lycra. I sell the lyrca style, which are made out of the same type of fabric as swimsuits. Latex and Silicone are made out of latex rubber and silicone rubber.

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.

Froggie's 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.


What size cap is your model wearing?

Most of my child models are wearing the child size. My baby models are wearing the baby size.


What size should I get?

I offer 4 different sizes:

BABY, age 0-2 / 16-18 inch head circumference

CHILD, age 2-8 / 19- 20 inch head circumference

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.

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 link labeled "Contact" on the left side of the screen in the orange area.

SIZING for FANCY CAPS:

These caps can vary a lot in size. A lot of variables determine how "big" the cap will be. Some fabrics are very stretchy, some are not. This has a lot of "say" in how tight or lose the cap will fit. The pieces that I use to make the caps are cut to the same size each time, but some end up bigger than others. The caps also get more lose with time, just as a swim suit would.
