Title: Hat shaping arrangement

Abstract: A hat shaping arrangement. The hat shaping arrangement comprises an inflation assembly and a inflatable bladder assembly. The bladder assembly has an air receiving space, an air port, and a deflated state. The bladder assembly is configured to substantially conform to an interior circumference of a hat to be shaped when the bladder assembly is in said deflated state. The inflation assembly is in fluid communication with the air receiving space through the air port. The inflation assembly is adapted to selectively input air pressure to and release air pressure from the air receiving space through the air port to inflate the bladder assembly toward conformance with an interior surface of the hat and deflate the bladder assembly away from conformance with the interior surface of the hat to be shaped thereby facilitating the retention of the shape of the hat.
