We use your personal measurements for sizing. What does this mean?
In order to get a proper fit, you'll need a cloth ruler (the kind you can get at fabric stores) OR a string and a straight ruler.
First decide where you'd like the waist beads to sit, above or below you belly. With our items there's no correct placement, it's where you feel they look best.
Secondly, take the ruler and hold it around your waist (or string). Take down the length. Now relax your stomach and take note of the length. Also sit down and take note of the length. You'll need to find a measurement that will take into account your stomach at rest as well as your stomach in normal circumstances. Our elastic waist beads expand slightly but the clasped option does not.
Once you're comfortable with the length, choose the measurement you'd like us to create for you.
** Consider sizing up for stretchy style if you want a more comfortable fit that won't roll up.
*** There is not much of a different between 1" in stretchy waist beads. If you order (for instance) a 30" and 31" they are generally the same. You would have to order a length 2" higher or lower to see any difference in length.
The average size for women's bracelets is between 7" and 7.5" (for men the average is 8"). If you're uncertain of the size you need, you can take a string and wrap it around your wrist leaving room to move around (you don't want the bracelets too small as it'll be too tight). Place that on top of a ruler and that will give you a general size. Size up if you'd like a looser fit.
We carry 6.5" up to 8" in bracelets
