A: If there is any round shape bangle that fits you properly, just take that bangle, use a scale/ruler/ and measure the diameter of the circle in inches as shown in the picture above. The standard bangle size is 2-4/16 inches (2.25 inches). Bangle sizes are usually in the range of 2.0 inches - 3.0 inches. Please do NOT use a measuring tape as they are not accurate enough.
Before you take the measurement using a scale/ruler, please take a moment to look at the scale/ruler and see how many divisions are there on the scale/ruler. You can do this by counting the number of lines or divisions between any one inch. Some scales/rulers will have 8 or 10 or 16 lines (divisions/markings). If the scales/rulers has 8 or 10 lines (divisions/markings) between any one inch, it is NOT very accurate and its not recommended to use this. Try to find a scale/ruler that has 16 lines (divisions/markings) between any one inch, this is the most accurate one.
When you take the measurement, say for example it comes to 2 inches and 4 lines or divisions, then the bangle size would be 2-4/10 inches (if the ruler has 10 lines or divisions between any one inch) which will make the bangle size 2.40 inches (do NOT confuse this with INDIA bangle size of 2-4 or 2-4 anna, that is a completely different size, please read the question below this for information on that) or if the scale/ruler has 16 lines or divisions, and when you measure it comes to 2 inches and 4 lines, then the bangle size will be 2-4/16 or 2.25 inches - this is the same as India bangle size 2-4 or 2-4 anna

Q: Is the bangle size when measured using the instructions above the same as the bangle size as specified or used in India?
A: Answer is Yes and NO. In India, bangle sizes are measured in 1/16th of an inch, so if you measure the diameter of the bangle using the instructions above and if that size come to say for example 2.25 inches, then that size is called size 2-4 or 2-4/16 or 2-4 anna in India. Size 2-4/16 is the same as size 2.25 inches, please do not confuse India bangle size of 2-2 or 2-2 anna or 2-2/16 with size 2.25 inches, these are two completely different bangle sizes
Q: Can I put a string or thread around my wrist and figure out the bangle size?
A: NO, this is the most inaccurate way to measure the bangle size, you can be 90% sure that the bangle you will receive if you do this will NOT be of the right size.
