Measuring a Good Fitting Bangle or Bangle Bracelet

Measure the inner diameter of a good fitting bangle or bangle bracelet you have. Compare the measurement to the above chart and determine your bangle size. This is a pretty accurate way to measure your bangle size.

To help you find the measurement if you do not have an existing bangle, you could simply use a tape measure.

Place the tape measure over the widest part of the hand. To do this put your hand flat and then bring your thumb (in your palm) and your little finger together. Then wrap the tape measure over the top knuckles of your fingers and pull tight (this will be just off your top thumb knuckle). The top knuckles, being the knuckles nearest your wrist.

Once the bangle is over the knuckles of your hand, then of course it will be relatively loose around your wrist. For a closed bangle, the correct measurement will be where it fits at the widest point.

Do remember that your hands could be different sizes so ensure you measure the hand on which you intend to wear the bangle and to ensure that the tape measure is straight across your knuckles, because the bangle is not flexible.

For an open bracelet/bangle, the correct measurement will be where it fits neatly on the wrist.
