How should a bracelet fit?
The perfect fitting bracelet should fit loose enough so that it moves a little, but not so loose that it slides off your hand.
Snug or loose fit? This depends on the individual. Some people like their bracelets looser for the bangle style, while others like them snug to their wrist. Ultimately, you want a fit that is personally comfortable to you.
