    I purchased the Bromley Top

    I purchased the Bromley Top Hat medium and it fit a bit snug, so I purchased the stretcher used it as directed and now my hat fits perfectly. Great product.

    Hat fits better now!

    I’ve been using this stretcher with my Roxy wide brim straw sun hat. It was about the right size but not quite the right shape for my head. Using the stretcher to reshape the hat has help immensely!

    Stretcher Stretched!

    The hat stretcher did everything it was supposed to: stretch out my hat! It fits perfectly now and not too tight. Very glad I was able to fix the size easily rather than return it for a larger size which might have been too large. Perfect save!
