Your Frauleins all seem to have the correct size!!! (-helmet size it is Ed!!! Do not misunderstand). Now (56 1/2...) I only seem to pay attention to the Hauben....at this (st)age. The challenge needs to be exceptionally worth the effort to have a closer look... But seriously: 1-You have "breast men"...
