I purchased this hat at a craft fair on the boardwalk in Wildwood NJ last summer. The vendor was wearing one and it really looked cute! So hubby bought me one. I wore it at the pool and down to the beach ( my scalp tends to burn pretty bad from the scalding sun there). It was several hours later that my hubby, daughters, their significant others AND my 3 older grandchildren laughed hysterically at me!!!! I was so embarrassed that I swore I'd never wear it again and hubby says I better wear it this year because it cost him $20 LOL
Once you put it on your head and push down on the top, it forms to your head.
