Bracelets- but will it fit?

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?".

Thanks for this post, it is really helpful. I'm in the process of adding a note to my bracelet listings to let them know that they can be custom made in any size, and I really think that's important and often overlooked.
