What size bracelet should I purchase?Updated 3 months ago

Sizing a wrist at home for a bracelet is quite straightforward and can be done with items you likely already have. Here's an easy method:

What You'll Need

  • A flexible measuring tape. If you don't have one, you can use a string or strip of paper and a ruler.
  • A pen or marker (if you're using string or paper).

Steps to Measure Your Wrist

  1. 1. Wrap the Measuring Tool Around Your Wrist:

    • Using a Measuring Tape: Wrap the flexible measuring tape around your wrist where you would normally wear a bracelet. Make sure it's snug but not tight. The number at the point where the tape meets the zero is your wrist size.
    • Using a String or Paper: If you don't have a measuring tape, wrap a string or a strip of paper around your wrist. Mark where the end overlaps with a pen.
  2. 2. Measure the Length:

    • Using a Measuring Tape: Simply read the measurement.
    • Using a String or Paper: Lay the string or paper flat and measure the length up to your mark with a ruler. This measurement is your wrist size.

Adjust for Bracelet Size

The measurement you've just taken is your actual wrist size, not your bracelet size. To find your bracelet size, you'll need to add some length to your wrist measurement, depending on how you like your bracelet to fit:

  • For a snug fit: Add 1/4 to 1/2 inch (0.6 to 1.27 cm) to your wrist measurement.
  • For a comfort fit: Add 3/4 to 1 inch (1.9 to 2.54 cm).
  • For a loose fit: Add 1 1/4 inch (3.18 cm).

This method should help you find a comfortable size for your bracelet. Remember, the amount of slack you add depends on how tight or loose you prefer your bracelets to be.
