I have heard from a number of women that buying bracelets online can be a real pain in the well rounded tushy. If your wrist is under 8 inches around, then any bracelet that says it is 8 inches long should fit right?
Well, in a word, No.
I am linking to a post that has information on why not all bracelets fit, and how to find out if the one you are looking at is a reasonable option for you.
Ask not "How long is the bracelet?", ask instead "What is the inner circumference of the bracelet?".
