"Sizing is WAAAAAY Off!!"
Bought this for my boyfriend based on the measurements they give on the site. They must measure from end to end, with the bracelet laying flat, because trying to put it on and snap it, came no where close to fitting him - way too small!! I tried putting it on (my wrist is 7") and it was super-tight, uncomfortable on my wrist. Too bad because I had several of these on my wish list; some for us and some for gifts, but if they don't fit anyone, why waste my money?? Measurements given should be of the of the inside circumference of the bracelet, with it closed, for ACCURACY!!
- None, doesn't fit - size advertised is not what you get
