    Posted: Oct 14 2013 at 9:13pm
Do these damn swim caps stretch out, somehow??  I just got my first TreBella wig.  It is wonderfully constructed, BUT I'd have to shave my head to make it fit.  I've altered the circumference, after emailing Stacy, but there is still barely any way for me to wear this Cry  It is really not the right size.. I think it should have been made with a bigger size cap (it's a Medium)  but it's kind of late for that, now... the problem is it is not deep enough for my big head (ear to ear over the top and front to nape)  Do you think if I stretched it as much as possible over a canvas head and left it like that a while,it would stretch?  Please HELP.

It will stretch but barely. Keep the wig on the canvas stretched out as much as you can for awhile.   I sent Stacey a large Japanese swim cap and my wig fits perfectly. I only use the medium when I make a wig myself since I could stretch it out the way I want when constructing my wigs.

They run small but perfect for wigs since there would be no need for combs or clips to secure them onto the head.

THE EASIEST FIX. IS TO CUT THE ELASTIC on the band in three to four places. go under the weft and cut the band without cutting the weft or threads. cut above the ears and at the nape. if that does not help cut between the ear and nape area.

See how the mesh is not cut only the band. if that does not work get it remade.

Depth of the wig cannot be fixed, it would have to be worn with hair left out or re-made.

Thanks, MisJ .. I did do just as you described; cut the bottom elastic edge behind both ears and in two symmetric places in the back.  It is better, but still a struggle to get on!  I will have to see if there is some way to arrange my hair that will have it fit better.  <sigh>

^^ MsBMW, it took her two weeks total to ship my wig back, she was quick!  In the future I think I'd send her the cap I want to use, too, I know she will accommodate that.
