In case you are not familiar with our bangle sizes, here is a guide to help you choose the right size. We also make sure to put as much information as possible with all product we sell, so always check the item description as well.
Introducing different sizes was something we have only recently started doing, so we only have a couple of designs in the Dainty size (59mm) for now. Most of our bangles come in the Lavish size (69mm) and we have just released a new design of bangles that are a Regular size (65mm). We will continue to bring different size options where possible so there is something for everyone.
Tips and Tricks -
- For those of you who require the Dainty sized bangles a little trick is to make sure a Dainty size bangle is at the start of your stack (closest to your hand) that way you can still wear larger bangles with out them sliding down all the time.
- Bangles are rigid, don’t have openings and need to slip through or over the hand onto the wrist. Having bangles that are too large is very uncomfortable with the fear of the bangles falling off your hand while having it too small would be torture whenever you try to slip it on or off your wrist.
Bangles are measured or sized by their diameter in inches. If you have good fitting bangles already then you can simply measure the diameter of those to find your size, otherwise, especially for fixed size bangles, you’ll need a tape measure or a strip of paper for measuring and here’re what you’ll need to do:
- Hold your hand as if you were putting on a bangle. Bring all your fingers together with your thumb and your little/pinky finger touching (like a sock puppet).
- Wrap the measuring tape or strip of paper around the widest part of your squashed hand. As a tip, measure around the knuckles and use the knuckle of the thumb as a starting point, this area around the knuckles is the widest part. Pull the measuring tape or strip of paper just tight enough to pass around this widest part.
- If you’re using a strip of paper, mark the part where it overlaps with a pen. Lay down the paper on a flat surface and measure it with a ruler from the starting point to the point of overlap. If it’s a tape measure, then simply take note of the measurement. This measurement is the circumference of your hand.
- Once you have the circumference, you must get the diameter. Tape the ends together (starting point and the point of overlap) and measure across the widest point of the paper bracelet/circle making sure that you are not distorting the circle shape in any way and that is the diameter.
Here’s a chart for easier reference for circumference to diameter conversion:
