I have a larger head than average with thick curly shoulder length hair to boot- something I hadn't thought about much until I tried to buy swim caps. I don't fit in the one size fits all caps but i fit in this one! Hurray! All the other ones- Speedos (even the one made for long hair & the new super water dynamic one that comes in a size large), Swimclub, et al- they either strangle my head in a vice & roll up my head causing lots of water exposure. Not so with the large size for this cap.

This Amazon link for the sizing chart just tells you to go to "Recreation Supply Company for detailed product or sizing information." I did that and it doesn't tell you the sizing there either. Neither does Water Gear's website- gee whiz- how are you supposed to know what size you are? Well, I found this one website that tells you more than you can imagine about swim caps:

[...]

If you scroll down to their bit on "Chin Strap Swim Caps", they actually tell you the head circumferences that correspond to each size. Normally I wouldn't put all this info into a review but I figure someone else may have the same trouble finding a cap that fits & if you are that person, maybe this will save you some hours of fruitless searching.

Anyway, my 1st cap died after months of regular use (I wasn't very diligent about fresh water rinsing) & after trying a bunch of other caps, I'm going to buy another 2 or 3 of these. Good luck to y'all &

"Just keep swimming!"

The url given in an earlier review for sizing no longer works. I eventually found the following information on another web site.
Using a tape measure, measure around your head just slightly above the ears. If your head measurement in inches is:
20 1/2 to 21 5/8 = size Small; 22 to 22 3/8 = Size Medium; 22 3/4 to 23 1/8 = Size Large. Keep in mind that the caps are made of latex rubber, and do stretch. Also, if you have long thick hair, you may want to go up one size and if you have short thin hair, you may want to go down one size.

I wish I could find these caps in a local store--I end up paying almost as much in shipping charges as I pay for the caps. I have long hair and the bubble caps are the only ones that don't give me a headache from being too tight. I have been swimming since I was two years old and have yet to find a swim cap that actually keeps my hair dry. I wear a cap to keep my hair from getting in my way.

I have ordered the white cap in a large twice in the past. This time I ordered the purple one and it was much smaller than the white and I had to return it - very disappointing. The white worked well when i had it, however, with regular swimming it does need to be replaced every year or so as it eventually rips.

A very good economical swim cap for the money. If you get the right size it keeps hair 99% dry.

Mrs. bought this...loves it...keeps hair dryer than any other cap she's owned. She has thin/fine hair and the small fits well.

I bought this because I have been searching for a comfortable swim cap that comes in large. Felt good when I put it on, but when I put my head in the water, it was so buoyant, I had to force my head into position for swimming. It may be great for paddling around, but not a good choice for lap swimming!
