hello! I have a problem where I have allergic reactions to the sun so I want to get a giant hat for fashionable and safe sun times, but I have a giant head and all the cute ones in places like H+M etc are too small.

anyone know where there are good hats in a wide variety of head size?

I'd look at a TjMaxx/Marshalls if you have one nearby. They always have a good selection in spring/summer, and I have seen sized ones there.

i had good luck with one from rite-aid. it had an animal print band, but that can easily be removed or modified by someone as talented as you.
(but i have no idea if my head is giant or not. i had bad luck with one from target. too small.)

I can't get any sun either and I recommend this type:

http://www.amazon.com/HDE-Women-Packabl ... able+visor

I'm not sure if the one I have is the exact one in the link, but with that style I can keep one rolled up in my bag and pull it out whenever I need it. Also, it's so hot to have a real hat on in the city where I live in the summer. The open top aspect of the visor is much cooler. It's not the most stylish of hats, but being too hot/having a lot of hair that doesn't fit under a hat makes me deal. The one I have connects with Velcro so the size is adjustable.

I also have had luck layering a base layer of natural block with zinc and a chemical-based on top. This zinc based block has been a godsend for me as someone with acne prone skin (it goes on dry). I am not sure if it is vegan:

Hat Country has a couple.
The Bullhide Ocean Edge is made of straw and it comes in large/extra large. Don't know why it's called "bullhide." :b
The Outback Sandy Brite also comes in large/x large.

If you're willing to wear something that's not floppy, I have a Kakadu Soaker hat, which comes in up to 2XL. My hat actually is 2XL. I think they run a little small but the 2XL fits me and it's a reasonably fashionable looking hat:

Btw, there's also Etsy.

This shop has lots of sun hats in different fabrics and sizes. Looks like most of her products are made of cotton:

butternut, i had no idea those existed. i ordered the one you linked to as well as this one
http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B007EH86JY/

i think i like this one better (seems like a better quality, and fits better. but otherwise they're almost exactly the same.) not so good in the wind, but that's okay. i added a strap to my rite-aid hat that i can use during windy days.)

thanks for the suggestion! i love them!
