Big Hands, Little Wrists


Little known fact – I have tiny wrists and massive hands. Now I’m not entirely sure how massive they are (they don’t look massive) but I have never found a bangle that fits over them and actually stays on. Maybe my bones don’t squish the way they’re supposed to.. other peoples hands seem to collapse so they can slip on they’re bracelets but mine are like “nope, this is just how big we are.. no getting past us”. Even as I’m writing this it sounds strange but I’m convinced there are more of us out there and so I thought I’d share my plight and offer comfort to my fellow ‘big handers’ while sharing a recent purchase which is one size fits all – yay. I picked these up from Next, I have similar expander bracelets to those on the left from Primark which were an absolute steal but these were a little funkier than plain old silver, I think you can get them from Topshop too so they’re probably the new ‘thing’ – you know I’m not down with the kids when it comes to fashion/accessories, I like what I like.


The neon and crystal aren’t quite so elastic and aren’t worn as often as they’re a little more glitzy but they’re a nice pop of colour/sparkle for a basic outfit, which is pretty much my every day ‘uniform’.

The metallic expander bracelets are £8 here and the crystal/neon ones are £10 here

    I love the yellow bracelet! Also, I have the same problem! I have wide hands I guess, but my wrists are small so when I have a bracelet on, it slides up my arm until it wedges itself close to my elbow haha! Love this post 🙂

    Oh my god I suffer from big handedness too and I hate it! Can’t just ‘buy’ bangles – I actually have to try them on haha, and can only get them over my left hand. Sad really…

    I too buy a bunch of stretchy ones, so glad there are such nice ones around 🙂
