To make a red hat out of a bra for your red hat chapter. Cut straps off red bra, and sides, just leave the cups. Fold left over material under, decorate with purple or lavender lace, and jewels. Then put elastic on back, and wind it around a purple or red head band.
Really cute! Just set it on top of your head. You can find a cheap bra in used clothing stores. Make sure they are able to set up such as lifter bras. A cups work the best.

I want to make a red hat from a red bra and need to see a picture of one. Thanks.
The only red hat photo I could find online is at this link. You'll have to go to the link yourself to see it because the photo is copyrighted.

What is the standard size bra to use for a bra hat?
I would use a D.
best results are when you use a push up bra with padded cups of any size - hopefully in a cool colour like red or purple
I donated a bunch of bras for bra hats for a club and they were all Ds. They ended up great.
These are favorites of the Red Hat Society and of course they will usually be in red or purple.
There does not appear to be a "standard" size but most use a size D cup because they want it to "stand out".
