Please try on your cap and gown immediately after receiving it to ensure the correct fit. Since sizes are based on your height and weight instead of traditional sizing, there will be some variance form person to person. The gown should fit loosely around your body and should fall about half-way down your calf. The sleeves will be be wide but should leave your hand free. After you’ve tried on your gown, you can use a warm iron to remove the wrinkles then hang it up.
