It is basically the circumference of your wrist when measuring it just below the wrist bone. If you got a broken size (i.e: 15.34cm, 17.2cm, etc), go one size up.

For bangles, close your fist and make sure your thumb is brought closer to your little finger. Simulate putting a bangle on your hand. Using a tape measure or paper strip, wrap them around your hand in the widest range possible. Mark where your size is with a pen then measure it with a ruler. That is the circumference of your wrist for your bangle. Purchase a bangle that is the next size up from the measurement you performed.
Now, for a fitting style, add 1 1/4 or more. For a snug fit, add around ¼ to a half-inch. For a comfortable fit, ¾ to 1 inch should be added. For a loose fit, add 1 ¼ in.
It is highly recommended that you do a snug fit. Most bracelets should have a comfortable fit unless they are large cuffs or thick bangle. It is suggested that it is best to purchase large bracelets with loose fit when you don’t want to feel tightness on your wrist.
