Bangles are beautiful wrist accessories that have been worn for ages by women around the world. A timeless Indian jewelry design, bangles come in various styles and add a touch of flair to any outfit. Plus, it is versatile enough to carry a traditional and an Indian look. However, finding the right size of a bangle is difficult, especially when shopping online. In this guide, we show you how to measure your bangle size so that you can choose your perfect piece from the many options available at Tarinika.
Why Measuring Your Bangle Size Matters
It is normal to be confused when it comes to Indian bangle size. It is essential to know your exact size because loose bangles can slip off your wrist, tight bangles are uncomfortable to wear, and often cut off circulation. Additionally, when shopping online, it is difficult to find the right bangles for you if you do not know your size. That is why it is crucial to measure and determine your Indian bangle size. Online Indian bangle size charts often do not accurately describe what you will be getting, so you may need to go to an in-person store to figure this out.
Did you know you can easily measure your bangle size without a bangle size chart? Here’s how.
What you'll need:
- A measuring tape
- A piece of string or ribbon
- A pen or marker
- A pair of scissors
How to Measure Your Bangle Size
Step 1: Measure Your Hand
The first step is to measure your hand. For this, tuck your thumb into the palm of your hand, make a small arch as you would when wearing a bracelet, and measure with tape from your leftmost knuckle to your rightmost knuckle. Note down the exact measurement in inches. Always measure the widest part of your hand, as it matters most when it comes to bangle size.
Step 2: Determine Your Bangle Size
Now that you have your hand measurement, you can use it to determine your bangle size.
Take the string, mark it at the exact size as the measurement, and cut it. Tuck your thumb into the palm of your hand once more, and measure it with the string. This step ensures that you have the correct measurement.
Step 3: Find the size
Knowing how to read the bangle size is just as crucial as finding the right size for you. And fortunately, Tarinika’s size range is easy to grasp! The most common sizes include 2.4 (2 inches 4 cm) and 2.5 (2 inches 5 cm). If you already own a bangle that fits you well, measure the inside diameter for the size. Cross-check with the measurement and order accordingly from Tarinika’s wide range of bangles.
Tips for Measuring Your Bangle Size
Here are some tips to keep in mind so that you can order the correct bangle size from Tarinika:
- Measure your hand three to four times for accurate measurement. Alternatively, you can also ask someone to do it for you.
- If your size falls between two sizes, opt for the larger size. It is better to have a slightly looser fit on your bangle than one that is too tight. In case it doesn’t fit, feel free to return and get the right size with Tarinika’s 14-day return policy!
- Consider the style of the bangle when choosing your size. Cuffs or bangles with clasps tend to run a smaller size than traditional bangles.
