How To Measure For A Bracelet

Unless you know your bracelet size, most get nervous when ordering bracelets online. You want your bracelets to fit properly and not be overly large or too small. Starfish gets many questions on what is the best way to measure your wrist and how to find out your bracelet size.  So we decided to dedicate a post to this intriguing question.

Bracelet guideWhat you need: Flexible measuring tape or a strip of paper or thin string.

Tape Measure: Measure just above (towards elbow) the wrist bone or where you would normal wear a bracelet, then add 1/4″ to 1 ” (1/2″ is average) depending on how tight you like your bracelets to fit. That is the size bracelet you would wear.

Paper or String: Place it in the same area as above, but mark it where it overlaps on your wrist. Then lay the strip flat to measure up to the mark using any ruler.

Volia! You now have your correct bracelet size!
