      (Please feel free to reference our sizing chart as you read on)

      Sizing your cap and gown is easy!

      The first measurement you need to know is your height.
      We size our gowns by height, so if you are 5'5" you should choose the gown designated for the height range 5'3-5'5.
      If you are 6'1 you would choose the gown designated for the height range 6'0" - 6'2".
      The second measurement you should be aware of is the circumference around the largest part of your body, this is usually your chest or hips. This will determine if you need a wider gown which we refer to as FF or XL. Our FF or XL sizes are not longer, but only wider.
      If you wear a tshirt size starting at XXL or larger our FF or XL sizes will most likely not fit. If you need an XXL or larger please send us an email and we will help you find the right gown!
      If you chose your size using our guidelines, your gown length should fall somewhere below your knee, but above your ankle.
      If you would like the gown to reach just above or slightly covering your shoes, please consider choosing the next size up.
      This is also good advice for those planning to wear lifts, heels, platforms, etc.
      Please feel free to take a look at our sizing chart to better understand how our gowns will fit.
      If you have any additional questions please reach out and we will be more than happy to help you!

      Very happy with doctoral hood!

      I’ve been renting doctoral hoods, and finally decided to buy one. This hood is great. Beautiful colors and nice piping, fits perfectly. It’s even nicer than I expected. I should have bought one of these years ago. The people were nice to work with and kept me informed about my shipment and timing. I highly recommend them. Good price, too.
