We make shower caps for average sized heads with a capacity for long hair. However, what is average? Most customers find our shower caps and turbans fit perfectly, however some find them too large and a few occasionally find them too small. As a guide, we measured our heads as follows:

  1. Around the hairline- across the forehead, below the ears and round the nape of the neck, ie where the elastic of a frill shower cap would sit.
  2. Across the crown- below the ear, across the crown to below the other ear.
Alison - 56 x 44cms / 22 x 17”
Liz - 62 x 46cms / 24.5 x 18”
Alison's mum - 60 x 41cms / 23.5 x 16”
Teenage daughter - 57 x 42cms / 22.5 x 16.5”


The standard sized shower caps and shower turbans are a good fit for everyone except Liz who finds the shower turban too tight. The petite sized turban also fits Alison and her teenage daughter if they were looking for a snugger fit. The petite frill style shower cap is too small for Alison and her teenage daughter as they either have a larger crown or long hair. Petite frill style shower caps are better suited to those with shorter hair as well as smaller heads. They are 6cms smaller than the standard size.

If your head measurements are smaller than those listed above, and you have short to medium length hair, we would recommend opting for a petite shower turban or petite shower cap.

If your head measurements are smaller than those listed above, but you have long hair, we would recommend opting for a petite shower turban or standard size frill style shower cap. Petite turbans are as capacious as the standard size, they just have a slightly smaller band around the forehead. You can also adjust the elastic to fit in all frill shower caps. The elastic can be accessed via a small opening in the bias channel.

The petite turban is only marginally smaller in diameter than the standard size but despite this, it does seem to fit those with smaller heads or those who prefer a snugger fit around the forehead. The band is stretchy (it is either made from a stretch lycra fabric or has an elasticated section at the back of the turban). Alison prefers the standard size because she finds it easier to slip on and off and is always in a hurry!

Please note, the turbans are not rubber swim caps; they are designed for comfort so will not feel tight (unless your head measurements are Liz’s size and above).


Yes! All our shower hats and drying turbans are fully washable. All designs can be washed at 30 degrees in the washing machine, although we recommend hand washing Sparkle Gold. Simply hang up to dry properly after use to keep your hat smelling fresh and looking as good as new.


Whilst you can recycle the fabrics from our products, you might wish to prolong your shower cap's life instead. Many of our customers have hats lasting well into their 10th year! If your shower cap is looking tired and is in need of a bit of TLC we offer a shower cap MOT service. This includes replacement elastic and a gold service wash and brush up from as little as £5. If you are extremely attached to the particular fabric and the design is no longer available, we offer a total re-build of your hat starting at £15.

If you would like us to spruce up your cap, please drop us a line through the form on the contact us page and we can discuss requirements. (Please note this service is only available for the frill style shower cap.)
