How to Measure Your Size for a Bangle Bracelet 

To determine your bangle bracelet size, follow these steps using a measuring tape or piece of string or twine. You may need an assistant.

  1. Place your thumb to your pinky finger so they are touching
  2. Wrap the thread, or twine around the widest part of your hand (right above the knuckle at the base of your thumb around the back of your hand and over your hand knuckles)
  3. Mark the spot where the thread, or twine meets
  4. Using a ruler with inches, lay the thread flat and measure from the end that wrapped around your knuckles to the mark. This will be the circumference.
  5. Find the size corresponding to your circumference on the below chart 

Alternate way to measure bangle size

Take a bangle you already own, center the widest part on a ruler or measuring tape to measure the diameter and find the size that corresponds to that diameter on the chart.
