Anklet Size Guide for Children
Guide to choosing your anklet size.
What size anklet do you need?
There is no reason you needed to know a child ankle size. Until now! It is not true that there is an average size anklet. So lets get to it and see how we can work this out.
There is a reason you want a good fit for your anklet. If it is too loose, it will will fall down over the heel and likely get lose. Too tight and it will not be comfortable.
Before you purchase, we advise you to measure the ankle and then check our product details. Have a look at the general guide below but please note ankle sizes vary like shoe sizes!
Anklets can also be used as bracelets and worn on the wrist.
How to measure
Measure against the skin, not with socks or tights on. Use a flat tape and place around the ankle, just above the ankle bone where you imagine the anklet will fit. You need to order a little above a flat measurement, about 1 cm to 1.5 cm, to allow for the beads, a bit of movement and maybe a bit of growing room.
For example: If you get a measurement of 14 cm snug, you'd need to order a 15 cm anklet.
To see what these lengths will look and fit like on the wearer, you could use a necklace with small beads and measure against the wearer and on a ruler. You need to be able to put a little finger into the gap.
If you don't have a tape, use a ribbon and ruler.
We are a little generous with our fits. A 15 cm anklet will measure on a ruler, not pulled taught, at 15 cm to 15.5 cm.
