How to Measure Your Wrist Size

When you're looking to buy a new watch strap, bracelet, or other item that needs to be sized to fit your wrist, it's important to know your wrist size. Measuring your wrist size is a simple process that can be done at home with a few basic supplies.

In this blog article, we will show you how to measure your wrist size using a thin rope or piece of string. We will also provide some additional tips for getting an accurate measurement.

What You'll Need

  • A thin rope or piece of string
  • A ruler or measuring tape
  • A pen or marker
  1. Find a thin rope or piece of string. A piece of string or thin rope is the easiest way to measure your wrist size. You can use a piece of yarn, a shoelace, or even a piece of dental floss.
  2. Wrap the rope around your wrist. Wrap the rope around your wrist snugly, but not too tightly. The rope should be level and not twisted.
  3. Mark the spot where the rope overlaps. Use a pen or marker to mark the spot where the rope overlaps.
  4. Measure the length of the rope. Use a ruler or measuring tape to measure the length of the rope from the mark to the end.
  5. Add 0.5 centimeters to the measurement. This will give you your wrist size in centimeters.

For example, if your rope is 15 centimeters long, your wrist size is 15.5 centimeters.

Once you have your wrist size, you can use it to purchase watches, bracelets, and other items that need to be sized to fit your wrist.

Here are some additional tips for measuring your wrist size:

  • Measure your wrist in the morning. Your wrist size may change throughout the day, so it's best to measure it in the morning when it's smallest.
  • Measure your wrist with your arm relaxed. Don't tense your arm or hand when you measure your wrist.
  • Measure your wrist on both wrists. Your wrist size may be slightly different on each wrist.
  • Have someone else help you measure your wrist. It can be difficult to get an accurate measurement on your own.
