Frequently asked questions
What is the material of your gowns? Washing instructions?
Our gowns are all made of 100% polyester. Purely made polyester, like our products, is extremely strong, extremely durable and has excellent properties such as being hydrophobic in nature that leads to quick-drying and stain resistance.
We recommend dry cleaning for all of our products in order to keep the integrity of the garment. However, our products can be washed in a machine using the gentle cycle or handwashed. For drying, please hang dry. The material can be ironed on a low setting.
What is the difference between matte and shiny?
The main difference is the finish of the fabric. Our shiny gowns are a knitted fabric that has more of a shiny look to it giving the color of the gowns more brightness. Our matte gowns are a woven fabric which has more of a flat dull finish.
What is the difference between the Deluxe and the classic/matte gown?
Our Deluxe gowns have fluting around the shoulders and yoke. They have more fabric used so they tend to be heavier. This is true for all of our deluxe gowns.
The deluxe master has a different shape for the batwings.
The deluxe doctor has bell sleeves and a braided button to attach the hood whereas the classic does not.
We cannot do an embroidered chest emblem on the classic doctor.
Overall, the deluxe is considered a higher quality gown for your regalia.
How do I know what gown's color to choose?
Please contact your educational institution, as we currently do not have access to school colors.
What if my school orders with a different company?
We welcome anyone to order with us! Although, we cannot give assurance or be held responsible for our gowns’ colours matching another company’s gowns. We provide unique shades of gowns are not the same with another vendor's products.
The color does not match my university regalia?
We do not color match. We have a very specific set of fabrics. We cannot guarantee that our fabric colors will match with another supplier’s fabrics.
I don’t see the color I need. Do you provide any that aren’t listed?
You can email us the color that you need, we will get back to you with a closed match.
We can color match some products if a bulk order is placed.
How to select my Graduation gown size?
You need to provide us with each customer's height with shoes on for the gown and weight. You do not need to provide cap size as our standard caps are one size fits all with elastic. Please see the our size chart.
Do you offer plus sizes?
We do have regular and full-fit sizes. We have plus sizes in 45, 48, 51, 54, 57, and 63. Please refer to the measuring instructions link for more information on our sizing.
Can I customize my gown?

What does piping mean for the gown/hood?
Piping is an embroidered thread around the velvet of a gown or hood.
Why would I need a 4th Chevron on my doctorate gown?
The 4th Chevron is for the Chancellor or President of a University. If you are neither, do not select "Add 4th Chevron" to your doctorate gown.
How do I select my hood's colors?
There is no standardized and unified published listing available of all current school colors.
While GraduationAttire does maintain a color chart for degree velvet colors there is no true substitute for contacting your school directly and asking them what colors they are currently using for your graduation apparel. Schools can and sometimes do change their colors on a yearly basis (and even the color of the gown itself).
The lining and chevron (satin fabric) represent your school colors. The shell is the material of hood which is always black (polyester fabric, matte finish). The velvet color represents your specific degree or field of study.
You always need to choose the colors based on your highest level of education or current school you are attending.
How do I wear my hood?
Place it over your head draping off your shoulders and across the back of your gown. The velvet edge should be on the outside visible from the back. Make sure the lining (field and chevron school colors) are turned out so that people can see from the back your university colors. Usually this is done by turning the velvet trim to the outside at the back just below your shoulders. If you ordered a professional / faculty hood there will be a cord in the back (with two buttons one on each side of the hood) to keep your hood in place and a cord in the front to keep the hood away from your neck. Fasten the front cord to a shirt or dress button. Finally make sure the fabric shell of the hood is smoothed down and lays flat against the back of your robe.
Do you offer different sizes for caps/tams/ beefeaters? Are they adjustable? What are they made of?
Our caps are made of 100% polyester.
We provide caps in two sizes: Adult and Child.
They measure 9"x9".
The caps are not adjustable.
What is the difference between 4, 6 or 8 sided tam?
The level of education attained by the wearer is indicated by the varying number of sides on a tam. Master's graduates commonly wear four or six-sided tams, with the specific choice often determined by the school. It's advisable to verify the appropriate tam style before making a purchase. Tams with six sides are suitable for programs like Ed.S (education specialist) that fall between Master's and Ph.D. Eight-sided tams are typically reserved for Doctoral programs.
What is beefeater?
A beefeater, also referred to as a Tudor Bonnet, is a premium hat usually reserved for esteemed officials overseeing graduation ceremonies (deans, presidents, etc...). The standard mortarboard, a square of cardboard encased in polyester, is worn atop the head and traditionally used for primary and secondary school graduations. In contrast, tams are more commonly chosen for advanced graduations like Ed.S and doctoral ceremonies, and occasionally for master's degrees.
Can I customize my diploma cover?

In the case of diploma covers, debossing is often used to add a tactile and elegant element to the cover. It can be used to feature the school's emblem, logo, or other decorative elements. The debossed design is usually slightly indented into the material, providing a subtle and sophisticated look and feel to the diploma cover.
