This review is from: Scala Women's Cotton Big Brim Hat (Apparel)
Overall, this hat is very versatile. It is a nice style, and the brim can be worn up or down (which I prefer). It has an inside cord for adjusting, and it is generously sized.
I wear a women's hat size L, and I frequently have difficulty finding a hat that is not too tight. This is far from it. In fact, I would say anyone who wears as S or M in a hat should probably pass on this one.
That said, I was disappointed in this hat. All the glowing reviews are well-deserved, I am sure, but I found the hat to be too casual, crinkled, and mis-shaped. Looking more closely at this hat, it's obvious that the quality in construction just isn't there, which partly contributes to the problem.
Sadly, it gets returned and the search for my perfect sun hat continues.

I have a small head and have this hat. I can wear it on windy days because there is an inside drawstring that works wonderfully. Because of this drawstring, it makes a great beach hat.

I too wear small to medium sized hats and own multiple colors of this hat and find them most comfortable.

I wear small hats ---- and I am finding searching for the perfect summer hat difficult. I would have ordered this hat but was Happy to read the comment that anyone with a small/medium should probably not order this one. Thank you sharing this Important information as returns are not my thing ---
I will continue to search for that perfect large brimmed Summer Hat ---- such a shame because I did like the style of this hat/also the choice of colors was wonderful!!

I found this hat to be of very nice quality construction. I've had one for 7 years, taken it on many trips and it still looks like brand new. If I was concerned about a few wrinkles, I'd just steam it a bit.
I am so pleased with the quality, I am surprised they don't have a higher price tag.
I don't have a very big head and the hat works fine for me, even with my long hair up in a clip.
I think it might depend on what one's expectations are.
