How to Measure Your Bracelet Size: A Comprehensive Guide

Finding the perfect fit for your bracelet is essential for both comfort and style. Follow these simple steps to determine your bracelet size:

What You’ll Need:

  • Flexible measuring tape or a strip of paper
  • A pen (if you’re using a strip of paper)
  • A ruler (if you’re using a strip of paper)


  1. Measure Your Wrist: Wrap the measuring tape or strip of paper around your wrist. It should be snug but not tight. If you’re using a strip of paper, make a mark where the end of the strip meets the rest of it around your wrist.
  2. Read the Measurement: If you’re using a measuring tape, take note of the measurement that meets the zero mark. If you’re using a strip of paper, lay it flat and measure the length up to your mark with a ruler. This is your wrist size.
  3. Add Length for Comfort: To ensure your bracelet isn’t too tight, it’s common to add some length:
    • For a snug fit, add 1/4 inch to 1/2 inch to your wrist size.
    • For a comfort fit, add 3/4 inch to 1 inch.
    • For a loose fit, add 1 1/4 inches.

Bracelet Size Chart:

If you’re buying a bracelet as a gift and you can’t measure the recipient’s wrist, use this chart as a general guideline:

  • Child: 5 – 6 inches
  • Teen: 6 – 6.5 inches
  • Small Adult: 6.5 – 7 inches
  • Medium Adult: 7 – 7.5 inches
  • Large Adult: 7.5 – 8 inches
  • Extra Large Adult: 8+ inches

Note: This chart is a general guideline. Everyone’s body is different, and the same bracelet size won’t fit everyone the same way. If possible, it’s always best to measure the wrist.
