I absolutley love this hat! I bought it for a beach vacation and feel in love before I even left! It is one size fits all so if you have a big head or a lot of hair it might be a little tight. Overall this is a great buy!

I bought the lavender version of this hat for a Kentucky Derby charity party and let me tell you, it is gorgeous! I've searched for a reasonably priced, large brim hat for weeks and this is the ticket! I love that the brim is wired and can be manipulated into many shapes! Even after attaching flowers, tulle, etc. for decoration, the structure held up perfectly. I cannot wait to wear this stunning hat next weekend! In fact, I love it so much, I'm purchasing a second one in black to wear around the pool!

The brim of the hat is huge! It fits my head just fine. It's a nice hat. But it's wide. Very wide. I was a little self-conscious when I first pulled it out of the box, but since I bought it for the Kentucky Derby, I figured "Heck with it! I'm workin' it!" You need to make sure you're confident enough to wear it. The brim is flexible and can be loosely shaped, which is nice. It'd also be a great sun hat by the pool or beach because of its size. It also has an UPF Rating, as the material has some sun protection.

At last, I found what I was looking for. I went through two other hats. What I like most about the hat is that it holds the shape and doesn't block my view. Completely blocks the sun. I am so glad I bought it.

I had been looking since last year for a big stylish hat to wear. This one is awesome and is my second San Diego hat. I get so many compliments. Such a great accessory and it fits like a glove.

Great straw hat, very large. I like that it is pretty bendable, I'm sure it would be easy to pack in a suitcase. It's a bit heavy and may blow off a lot in breezy situations. I have other San Diego Hat Company hats and love them all.

Great hat! I purchased it for Preakness and dressed it up to match my dress by sewing on ribbon and an extra large bow. I received many compliments! For Preakness next year, I plan to wear this hat again and change out the ribbon/bow to match my dress for next year.

This is a big hat! It's going to BVI with me and it will come in handy for keeping the UV rays off my head and shoulders. Looks spectacular on and easy to fold and travel, it pops right back into shape. A great big hat with a great low price for what you get. A great look for anyone on a boat, yacht, beach or by the pool. Excellent for any resort!

Big, pretty, healthful hat; a little heavy. Nowhere else but San Diego Hat Co have I found hats that provide so much portable, non-chemical sunblock. This brim is the widest I've found. The shape is a stylish picture hat, but another slightly smaller style slants down and provides a bit more sunblock if facing the sun.

Love this hat! So glamorous! I can't wait to wear it on my vacation while lounging by the pool. Also, I'm glad it can be rolled up for transport.

Clearly a higher quality hat than say the Jessica Simpson line. I loved the Toast color, but the brim is just way too big. My husband said it looked like a floppy tortilla on my head. I searched for the same style/brand with a smaller brim and they don't make one. (The San Diego Hat Company UBL4136 Women's Floppy is close, but a bit stiffer.)

Crazy big, exactly what I needed and wanted. Covers shoulders too. Seems odd, but if you want sun protection (and I do after recent trips to my dermatologist) this is the hat. Just be aware, it is for sitting, not for movement. It's too big to walk with (air flow will blow it off). Unfortunately, my husband is not a fan and after mulling it over, I am returning. :(

Really cute hat -- Really big hat! Got it for steeplechase and it was perfect for the event, although I didn't wear it the whole time because it got in the way a bit.

This is the perfect hat for the next Derby or Steeplechase. The only issue I had with it is that the "one size fits all" is a little big for an average head and it's a bit tough to keep on in any type of windy weather. Other than that, it is a great addition to any wardrobe.

I bought this for a Kentucky Derby Fundraiser and the hat is just what I wanted, but the brim is so floppy that it doesn't stand out like the picture, it's like walking in a tunnel you can't see off to the side, and people can't see you.

Wonderful hat! As shown on the mannequin, matching the item that I received. And a delivery of it was super-fast!

The brim of this hat is so big, it's like your own personal umbrella. I like to read my Kindle while floating on a raft in the pool. Just prop this on your head and over the book, and you have a little reading nook without the bright sun. Love it! Great quality and look also!!!

I sent this hat to my sister on the West Coast. She loved it. Her taste is demanding and this item passed the high fashion test.

My family has nicknamed this hat as the "ridiculously large hat." So if you want a hat with an extra large brim, this is it. It's not great for walking long distances in, but great for reading a book or relaxing in the sun. It's like having your own personal shade tree.

Definitely shields you from the sun, a little bit floppy have to keep fixing it. Took it to Aruba and this hat helped with the sun but can easier fly off your head with the wind in Aruba.

This is a beautifully-made hat, and it has an unbelievable price. It is perfectly-proportioned and has a great color. The brim is huge, so it can be turned up or down, for different looks. It would make a great Mother's Day present!

Bought hat in white and citron. Returned citron as it was actually not as bright and pastel as the picture, but rather, a mustard color. Very bendable for packing, but creases stay.
