# How To Measure Your Hand

When buying a watch or bracelet, you should know the size of the hand of the person to whom it is intended. The size of the gloves depends on the girth of the wrist. To sew clothes with sleeves, you need to make the appropriate measurements. In all these cases, the hand must be measured correctly.

## Instructions

### Step 1

Find out the size of your hand if you are purchasing the jewelry for yourself. Measure the circumference of your arm where you will be wearing the bracelet using a tailor's tape measure. Add two centimeters to your result. By measuring your hand in this way, you will find out the size of the bracelet that is suitable for you. Two centimeters are added to the girth of the arm so that the jewelry can be easily buttoned up and worn comfortably without risking losing it.

### Step 2

To find out the correct size of the bracelet for the watch, you must also measure your hand in the right place for this, not forgetting to add an additional two centimeters to the result. Measure from arm to arm the length of the watch. Subtracting the length of the watch from the girth of the wrist gives you the size of the bracelet for the watch.

### Step 3

To find out the size of your gloves, measure your hand as follows. Use a tailor's tape measure to measure the circumference of your hand. Usually the right hand is measured. The girth is measured in the area of ​​the fifth metacarpophalangeal wrist. Express the resulting value in centimeters, rounded to the nearest whole number. The resulting number will correspond to the size of your hand.
