In this blog post we look at the sizes of earmuffs and earwarmers. We also give more tips for measuring and the difference between these two options to keep your ears warm this winter.
Size table earmuffs for winter
|Earmuff size||Ear size in cm||Ear size in inches||Fits|
|S||4 – 5 cm||1.5 – 2 inch||Kids|
|M||5 – 7 cm||2 – 2.75 inch||Most women|
|L||7 – 9 cm||2.75 – 3.5 inch||Most men|
Bandless earmuffs for winter are coming in S, M and L
For the sizes of these bandless ear warmers, it is extra important to check the height of the ear. If the ear is too small, the earmuff for winter will come off quickly. So it is wise to measure the size of the ear from the top to the earlobe. Children and small women will usually choose size S. Most women and young men will choose size M. Last but not least, most men will go for size L.
The same applies to the winter earmuffs with a band. Pay close attention to the size in the description of the product, because some can be really big. In addition, it is important to see if the band is adjustable.
Measure ear-to-ear size
Isn’t this the case? Then check what your ear-to-ear size is. This is easiest to measure with a measuring tape from the middle of one ear, over the head to the other ear. The image below gives a better idea. You can also do it with a piece of string and then lay it along a ruler.
|Earwarmer size||Ear-to-ear size in cm||Ear-to-ear size in inches|
|S||34 – 36 cm||13.5 – 14 inch|
|M||37 – 40 cm||14 – 15.5 inch|
|L||41 – 43 cm||15.5 – 17 inch|
