I've always been told over the years I have a rather big dome... Even with a big head and LOTS of hair, this beanie is definitely a looser fit. I washed and dried it and it didnt shrink up too much at all. If you like a saggy, looser fitting beanie this is a great choice! Also, the blue charcoal color has more of a purplish hint vs. blue in my opinion. ROCK DISCRETE!
