What Beachcombers glass bangle size am I?

Specifically for Beachcombers! Glass Bangles

Indian glass bangles, sizes 2.6, 2.10, 2.12.

The key to wearing glass bangles is to get the correct size. You should wear the smallest size possible for the best look and the least amount of breakage while you are wearing your bangles.

If you are new to Indian bangles, especially if you are new to glass bangles, you should expect a bit of breakage while you get used to them. No worries, this is perfectly normal.

The first step is getting the correct size. It is very important to actually find your size as the size medium bangle do not necessarily correspond with size medium clothes.

We offer three options for finding your Beachcombers! bangle size.

  1. Try on actual glass bangles: Beachcombers Bangle Sizing Kit. The most accurate option.
  2. The Beachcombers! printable bangle size template (below).
  3. Measure good fitting bangles you already own.
  4. Instructions for finding your size using a tape measure to measure your hand (below).

How To Find Your Bangle Size

1. Try On Actual Glass Bangles
The best way to ensure a perfect fit is to try on actual glass bangles. Beachcombers! offers a
Glass Bangle Sizing Kit
specifically for this purpose. It is only $2.99 with free shipping, then once you have found your bangle size and order bangles, you get a $2.99 discount making the bangle sizing kit free!

This will ensure a perfect fit, but you have to wait for the kit to be shipped to you, so it does take some time.

2. Beachcombers! PDF Printable Bangle Size Template
This is almost as good as the bangle sizing kit. Just print out the sizing template (making sure it is to the proper scale), cut out the circles, and try to fit your hand through the different circles.

This should show you your bangle size and is instantaneous. If you still have questions, you can always call the Beachcombers! toll-free phone number, 1-866-454-8772.

3. Measure Good Fitting Bangles You Already Own
Take out bangles that you already have and measure the inside diameter and compare to the below measurement chart or the measurement stated in the actual bangle listing.

As long as you measure the inside diameter of your current bangles this will be an accurate way to find your bangle size.

Size Diameter
S 2.6 2 3/8 6.03 7.46 (7 1/2")
M/L 2.10 2 5/8 6.67 8.25 (8 1/4")
XL 2.12 2 3/4 7.1 8.6 (8 3/5")

4. Measuring Your Hand with a Tape Measure
This can be used to find your bangle size, but is a little bit trickier than the printable sizing template, but when done carefully will give you an accurate result.

You will need a flexible tape measure or a piece of string and a ruler.

  1. Make your hand as small as possible, as if you were putting on bangles, bringing your thumb and little finger together.
  2. Using the tape measure (or string), measure the around your hand at the widest point (the tape measure should be pulled taught, not loose). Make note of the actual circumference of your hand (if you used string, make a mark where the string meets, then measure the length of the string with your ruler to get your hand circumference).
  3. Compare your hand circumference to the bangle circumference in the below chart. Purchase bangles that are the next size up from your actual hand measurement.
Size Diameter
S 2.6 2 3/8 7.46 (7 1/2") 6.03 19
M/L 2.10 2 5/8 8.25 (8 1/4") 6.67 21
XL 2.12 2 3/4 8.6 (8 3/5") 7.1 22

Glass bangles are breakable and must be put on slowly and carefully in small groups. Typically you will have to use lotion on your hands to get these bangles to slip on. The 2.10 M/L is the most common size in the U.S. and should fit most women.

If in doubt of your bangle size, size up. If you are buying a gift for someone, get the 2.10 size.
