Sizing your bracelet
Using a piece of string (or fabric measuring tape), measure your wrist just above the wrist bone (towards your elbow, not your hand). This is the circumference of your wrist. Depending on the type of fit you would like, add the following to your measured wrist circumference to get a final bracelet size:
- Snug fit (won't move much) : add 1/4" to 1/2"
- "Comfort" fit (will move, but stay above your hand): add 3/4" to 1"
- Loose fit (may drape down on your hand a bit): add 1-1/4"
Pick the bracelet size closest to this final calculation. For example, if I measured my wrist as 5.75" and would like a snug fit, I would pick either size 6 or size 6.5 as my bracelet size. If I wanted a loose fit that would hang down a bit on the top of my hand, I'd pick size 7.
