I Don’t Fit in the Standard Size Cap – What Can I Do?

I Don’t Fit in the Standard Size Cap –

What Can I Do?




The size and fit of your wig is a really important part of wearing a wig that looks natural. Our wigs are crafted in three sizes; small, medium and large, and generally fit majority of people. What happens if you’re a combination size or a different size completely?




There are solutions for sizing concerns.





  1. You might want to consider a custom made wig. Freeda can create a wig for you made with your exact measurements for a perfect fit.
  2. Freeda has a professional fit specialist on staff. If your wig needs to be taken out or made smaller we can get your wig to a perfect fit.
  3. Adjustable elastic tabs are sewn into every wig, for minor adjustments you simply tighten or loosen the elastics for the correct fit.





If you’ve ordered from our website and don’t live locally, simply send us your wig with your measurements and we will craft your wig to its perfect fit.  Freeda is proud of our excellent craftsmanship and will never remedy the size using pinch or tuck sewing methods. Your wig will be recreated with the perfect, individualized fit just for you.

Adding Volume to Your Wig -so easy anyone can do it!




Do you love extra height on the crown but don’t want to change the amount of hair the wig has?  Or maybe you want that pop of volume sometimes, like for a dressy occasion but you don’t want it to be your everyday look?




You’d be surprised at this little known trick we do that takes just a second but gives oomph and some va-va-voom to your wig. You don’t need to be a stylist; you don’t need a quick crash course at beauty school, you don’t need to have any hair added to your wig. Best of all, this is something anyone can do! And yet, one more thing that you won’t believe! This trick will cost you about a dollar!




What’s the trick? A shoulder pad!



Yes, for volume and height in the blink of an eye people will add a shoulder pad right under the crown of the head. No tools, no blow-drying, no rollers, just an easy fix for a new look you’ll love.



You can pin the shoulder pad into the crown but be careful not to pierce the multidirectional crown. (Those little holes cause the multi extra wear and tear that you’ll want to avoid.)




What a great wig hack! Stay tuned for other great hacks that will keep you loving your Freeda wig!



This dress updo with height on the crown can be created by simply adding a shoulder pad under your wig.  This look, created with our Riva long, can be viewed on our website at Freeda.com.





What are the steps to take when purchasing a cranial prosthesis?

What are the steps to take when purchasing a cranial prosthesis?


When you are first faced with a medically necessary wig it can be overwhelming to figure out what steps to take care of first. Should you find a wig? Talk to your doctor? Should you contact the insurance company? What should you say? What should you ask?




These are the steps you should take when filing a claim:





Call your Insurance Provider


Step 1: The first step is to call your Insurance Provider. You will want to ask them about their requirements, what they will cover, and what specific terms they will need on the prescription. Likely they will need a prescription for a cranial prosthesis.

Find out if the wig needs to be purchased before the claim is made, if they are paying a set amount or a percentage of the wig.

Please see our post here all about the terminology of the cranial prosthesis and a little background.





See Your Physician  


Step 2: When you see your physician you will want to get a prescription for your wig. Be sure your doctor uses the terminology that your insurance requires.




Purchase your wig



Step 3: Make plans to find your wig. Ask for a medical receipt to submit to your insurance. The receipt should be a specific receipt for a cranial prosthesis. At Freeda we have a coach on staff who can guide you through the insurance claim process.






Submit Your Claim




Step 4: You will submit the claim to your insurance company. You will need a copy of

  • Your doctor’s prescription
  • Sales receipt for your wig
  • Completed insurance claim form




Keep copies of anything related to your wig and your insurance claim. You will need these copies if you need to resubmit your claim for any reason. You should also keep any correspondence you have with the insurance company.
