Trollbeads Bangle Size Guide

It can be a little perplexing when, after you have decided which of the lovely Trollbeads Bangles to buy, you then discover that each style comes in five different sizes!

From Extra-Extra Small, Extra-Small, Small, Medium and Large, which size will you need?

How big or small should they be on the wrist?  How should they look when worn?

Well, worry no more! We are here to help cut through the confusion, with some examples on people’s wrists.

First, let’s look at the Trollbeads Official Bangle sizes available‚Ķ

A few things to remember, when selecting the correct size bangle:

  • The Trollbeads bangle slides on your wrist side-on (ie you don’t need the opening of the bangle to be wide enough to go on over your wrist at the widest part!)
  • You will not wear as many beads on your bangle as on your Trollbeads bracelet. Some customers love the bangle without any beads on.  The Trollbeads bangle is designed to allow the beads to fill a section of the bangle, with stoppers each side of the beads to hold the beads in place.

We have found that XXS, XS and Small fit most ladies.  The XXS is really for those with wrists measuring 14cm or 15 centimetres – and this would be if few or no beads are worn on the bangle.

Denise, in the shop, who has a 14.5-15 cm wrist has worn a XXS with three beads and stoppers, although the bangle was quite fitted with little movement. She already has her eye on a Copper bangle and has said she’ll get an XS this time for a little more movement. You can see how the different size bangles look on her wrist in this video

Nikki has a 16-centimetre wrist size and shows you how the small bangle looks on her wrist below. An Extra-Small also fits but she likes a little movement so wears a Small.

Amy, who has a 17-cm wrist, finds that the Medium and Large are too big for her.  Small is sufficient.

We have devised our own table below, based on our experience in the shop and what customers prefer. It’s not perfect but it’s a good guide. (Do let us know if you have a different experience – the more ‘data’ we get the better this guide will be).

We hope that this video help to show that the XXS, XS and Small Trollbeads bangles are perfect for most ladies.

Trollbeads have made their own video to show the correct sizing of the bangle which we’ve provided a link to below.

If you have any suggestions or can help our readers by telling us the perfect size bangle for you, compared to your wrist size, and if you wear with or without beads, that would be very helpful to us all.
