Firstly the crown, the part that covers the top of the head and secondly the brim, the part that protrudes from the base of the heard. You will here about milliners talking about these parts of the hat. If you are a fuller lady, then a full brimmed hat, can balance the image of a fuller figure and can be really flattering. If however you are more slender then a full brimmed hat can be quite dwarfing. Try different brim sizes on and find one which looks in proportion.
