She's a baby-wearing, nature-loving mama from Indonesia. If you have a case of wanderlust, her Instagram might only make it worse - - - but in all the best ways! We love following her travels and her adventures as a mother. She's also extremely passionate about taking care of the earth and making sure it's still just as beautiful for future generations.
Wulan in our Addie
We asked Wulan to share about the hats she wears and here's what she said:
"My life has led me to wear many "hats". I am a mother, a traveler and an environmentalist, among many other things. Out of all of those though, the most rewarding by far has been that of mother.
Before becoming one, I saw motherhood as a something noble, but also time consuming and tough. Now all that is true, but to be honest, I never thought it would be this hilarious! To see your child grow and do some of the funniest things you can think of is so much more rewarding than what I thought it could be."
"As tough as motherhood can be though, the "hat" that is really tough is that of an environmentalist. As a mother and someone who cares deeply about our planet and the wonderful creatures that live on it, I want to make sure that future generations (my daughter included) has the opportunity to appreciate all that Earth has to offer. However, it is tough to move people to action.
It's one thing to say you care about the environment, it's a whole other to actually do something to save it. I have worked for a long time to spread awareness and promote action in order to help reverse the damage we humans have done to our environment."
"I believe to move people to action, they have to see what is happening up close. That is why I am an active scuba diver, working with local dive companies to promote better diving practices as well as bring the public to see the impact we have on the ocean.
I have many things and people that inspire me, but if I have to narrow it down, it would be Jane Goodall for her tremendous work in conservation, and the mothers out there that have shown the world that they can still do the things they are passionate about and be a great mother at the same time."

Women's hat sizes are fairly intuitive. The average women's head size measures around 57cm. If you are unsure of your hat size the Gigi Pip small/medium hat would be the best starting point. The small/medium hat size is made to fit 57cm + can be adjusted down to 55cm. If you know you have a slightly larger head go with the 59cm size. As far as Gigi Pip sizing goes this is a medium/large, made to fit a 59cm head size + then can be adjusted down to 57cm. The largest size Gigi Pip offers is a 61 cm, labeled as an XL, like our other sizes the 61 can be sized down to 59 cm. For women who feel they have a slightly smaller head than normal we recommend an XS which begins at 55cm + can be sized down to 53 cm. In select styles we offer kids sizing which begins at 53 cm + can be adjusted to 51 cm.
In short- the most common hat size is a S/M (57cm). While this is the most common hat size, remember that properly sizing your Gigi Pip hat will ensure the best fit.
There are two primary methods of measuring your hat size + are based on the style in which you wear your hat. You will need to take both measurements (shown below) + then use the larger of the two measurements to determine your hat size. Once you've received your hat, you can decide how you would like to wear it + adjust your hat size accordingly.
TIP: If you don't have a textile measuring tape, use a string or piece of yarn to measure the distance around your head. After you have marked the yarn around your head, lay it out flat on the ground or table + measure the straightened out piece of yarn with a measuring stick or regular measuring tape.
Adjustable Inner Band Instructions
Flip up the sweatband to find the Velcro tab + pull to tighten. Velcro the ribbon back in place to secure your desired fit. The adjustable band can adjust the hat up to 5 cm when necessary! Some helpful tips about our adjustable inner band-
Hat Sizing Tape Instructions
Hat sizing tape is an additional option for tightening the fit of your hat. Place the foam tape on the inside of your hat, behind the sweatband, with the sticky side facing towards the hat wall. Wrap the tape completely around the hat for maximum size decrease or cut tape length in half for a more moderate decrease. Size to fit prior to removing the adhesive cover. Once the fit is correct, remove the adhesive cover, press firmly into place, and wa-lah.
