Cosplay.Com Wig Sizes?

I have a large head, so far I have found only Arda wigs fit me comfortably.

What is the size like on the Cosplay.com wig shop wigs? Are they as big as Arda, or smaller? The sale has me wanting to get a wig, but I'd rather not waste the money if it's going to be too small.

I've had 3 wigs from here (2 bought by users and one directly off the site) and they fit fairly large. Not as big as arda though. Have you used epiccosplay before? They fit pretty close to those wigs. Maybe half an inch smaller then epic.

They're pretty snug. I have a 22-23 inch head and I wouldn't try much bigger. The new wigs also have, essentially, mesh stopping the elastic on the sides from doing what it's supposed to. You can cut it, however, which adds room (someone posted how to do it on here somewhere. Basically the mesh on the sides gets snipped away from the wefts so it can properly stretch out).

As what ShinobiXikyu posted, they're very snug. My head is 22.5in. and I have a hard time getting my Coscom wig to fit. It's a pretty wig but the fit sucks like a black hole.

I could not wear the shop.cosplay.com ones myself with out altering them to expand because there made with lace at the sides that prevented them from expanding. My head circumference is 23.75".

Looks my my last reply was caught in the moderation queue... Mods, if you see this, disregard the previous post.

Thanks for the responses, everyone. I measured my head circumference yesterday, it's about 22.5 inches. I have a friend with an Epic Cosplay wig, I tried the wig on last night and it fit alright but I wouldn't go much smaller. Looks like Cosplay.com's wigs are too small for me without performing the modifications - thanks for letting me know about that by the way, I'll go searching for the post.
