How to Measure Your Bracelet Size

Measuring your bracelet size at home is simple with just a few supplies. Here are some easy methods:

Use a Measuring Tape

A flexible measuring tape is the most accurate bracelet sizing tool. Here's how to use it:

  1. Wrap the tape measure snugly around your wrist where you typically wear bracelets.
  2. Make sure the tape is flat against your skin but not painfully tight.
  3. Note the measurement in inches on the tape.
  4. If between sizes, round up to the next half inch.

Measure several times for consistency. Use your dominant hand, as it's often slightly larger. The tape should fit securely but not restrict blood flow.

Use a Piece of String

A piece of string or yarn can also measure your bracelet size:

  1. Cut a piece of string about 12 inches long.
  2. Wrap it snugly around your wrist, on top of wrist bone.
  3. Mark where the ends overlap with a pen.
  4. Lay the string flat and measure from end to mark in inches using a ruler.
  5. If between sizes, round up to the next half inch.

Make sure the string is snug but not uncomfortably tight when measuring. For accuracy, measure 3-4 times and use your dominant wrist.

Use a Bracelet You Own

If you have a bracelet that fits perfectly, use it to measure:

  1. Put the bracelet on your wrist where you usually wear bracelets.
  2. Use a soft measuring tape to measure the inner circumference in inches.
  3. Do not include the clasp or ends in the measurement.
  4. Match your measurement to the size chart below.

This is a quick and easy method if you have a properly fitting bracelet to use for sizing.

Bracelet Measurement Tips

  • Measure your dominant wrist which is slightly larger.
  • If oval-shaped, measure at the widest point.
  • Measure snugly but not painfully tight.
  • Metal bracelets have some give, so high end of size range is ideal.
  • Measure at end of day when wrists are largest.

Bracelet Sizing FAQs

How tight should a bracelet fit?

A bracelet should fit snugly without sliding up and down your wrist. You should be able to fit a finger comfortably between the bracelet and your wrist.

What if my wrist measures between sizes?

If between sizes, size up to the next half inch for a more comfortable fit. Bracelets can be difficult to clasp if too small.

Do I measure my dominant wrist?

Yes, typically your dominant wrist will be slightly larger, so measure it for your bracelet size.

When's the best time of day to measure?

Measure in the evening when your wrists are naturally a bit swollen after daily activity. Morning measurements may be slightly smaller.

Can I make a bracelet smaller if needed?

Some metal bracelets can be professionally shortened by a jeweler by removing links. Braided and fabric bracelets are more difficult to size down.

How do I find someone's bracelet size without them knowing?

Borrow a bracelet they wear regularly and measure it, or trace their wrist size on a strip of paper when their wrist is flat. Asking a close friend to measure their wrist also works.
