First, decide how you prefer to wear your bracelet, tightly, loosely, or as an exact fit.
Tight fit is recommended when you don't want the bracelet to move from its place at all. However, wearing a tight fit bracelet for longer periods at a time might cause slight discomfort due to the pressure.
Exact fit is the best option for most men. It allows the bracelet to sit firmly and naturally on the wrist. An exact fit bracelet falls properly on the wrist giving it just a little room to move around, and doesn't cause discomfort when worn for longer durations.
Loose fit is a popular style among men who prefer their bracelets to sit on their wrist without restraint. A loose fit allows the bracelet to move freely on the wrist without a stable grip on the skin.
Tip: if you are considering a solid metal bracelet (e.g. cuff or bangle), you should go with exact or loose fit. This is because your wrist expands slightly throughout the day and a tightly fit metal bracelet can cause discomfort in the evening.
How to measure your wrist
- Make sure the palm of your hand is facing up and your hand is open in a natural position (don't clench your hand into a fist)
- Wrap a piece of string around your wrist and mark the spot where it goes around your wrist
- Extend the string and measure the distance from the start to your mark
or use a flexible ruler to get the exact wrist circumrefence measurement.
Although the average man's wrist size is 7.25" / 18.4cm, you should always make sure you have your correct measurements when shopping for bracelets online.
