Sizing Your Cap & Gown Set


Sizing the Gown:

Be sure to measure the student's height with the shoes they will wear for the ceremony. The size listed is the actual length of the gown from the back neck to the hem. Gowns are sized so that the hem is 8 to 10 inches from the floor. If a longer gown or sleeve length is desired, order one size larger than what would be normal for your height.

Do you need a Plus sized gown?

The "Plus" size gowns will comfortably fit a bust/waist/hip measurement of 70." If you do not need this much width in the body of the gown, but your weight is higher than that listed on the chart for your size, we suggest that you order the next gown length. (For example, if you are 5'4" and weigh 210 lbs, the size 48 may be too small, but if you feel that the Plus 1 would be too large, we'd recommend ordering the size 51 gown.)

Caps are not sized:

The caps have small elastic panels on the sides which allow them to work with almost any head size. We do not require a head measurement, only a gown size. If you have an unusually large head (over 24-1/4", which is a 7-3/4 or XXL hat size), write a note for us in the checkout area giving us your head measurement so that we can accomodate you!
