This is a follow-up post to a previous one that described how to block berets.
A slouchy hat is a challenge to block because you don't want the crease that you would get if you laid the hat flat or stretched it over a plate. This is one solution: stuff it with tissue paper. (Be sure to use plain white or unbleached tissue and not colored tissue that might bleed when wet.)
Another solution, if you have one just the perfect size, is to use an upside-down bowl, or a vase and place the beret over it.
