I sure could use some help with sizing, from those "in the know."

I've decided I need a Chamilia flex bangle. I just love the sleek look of that design. Anyway, on the Chamilia website, it says to measure your wrist and add 1". The flex bangle is available in 7.5 inch, 7.9 inch, and 8.2 inch for $70. I also see medium, large, and X-large flex bangles on Ebay for $50-60.

Would you assume that the medium, large, and X-large bangles on Ebay correspond to the 7.5, 7.9, and 8.2 inch bangles on the Chamilia website? And, if your wrist measured 6", which size would you buy? I do not like my bracelets to be snug, but I don't want them falling off, either. Help????

I have a 6" wrist and have both a med and Large flex bangle. Both are just about full. There is no way either would fall off even with a few beads. They do stretch alittle and u can squeeze them to make it tighter. Kinda like the old toy rings from the gum ball machine lol. Once it's on the ends kinda overlap so no risk of falling off. The number measurements do correspond with the M, l, and xl. I have searched a few jewelry shops that either list the number next to the med, large etc. hth

Excellent! Your note is SO helpful, Amy, especially since it sounds like our wrists are about the same. I think I'll go with the large, just because I do like bracelets to be a bit looser. I can't wait to get the flex bangle and that new Snow White bead (the fairest of them all)! That's the one that pushed me over the edge.

Thanks for your help!

I also bought my kids birthstones and told DH he was set for Mothers day, LOL!
Anyway, I hoped one of you experts could answer this question-I love the Minnie bow that was posted a couple days ago. Will it be out on the chamilia website after the current sale is over? Also does Chamilia ever do a buy 2 get 1 free direct or is that up to individual stores? I took advantage of the 30 percent off sale but still have a big wish list left!!!
Thank you all for your great pics and posts-I have enjoyed this thread!!
I've never seen the Chamilia site have a BOGO sale, though they do have sales where if you spend, like $100, you get a bracelet for free. Seems like they have it a couple of times a year.

It's so addicting. I like to travel as much as I can and its nice to find beads that represent my families adventures. I love my bangles, they are so much easier to take off and I like the look as well.

I collected 2 bracelets and a necklace worth in just 2 years. One bracelet is all Disney and the necklace. My other bracelet is our other trips and adventures. Have fun!

That's what I thought I might do. I travel every now and then for work, and as luck would have it, my next trip is to the Contemporary Resort for a conference, three weeks from today. Woo hoo! I went ahead and bought one of those "hidden Mickey" beads on Ebay this morning. I just couldn't resist!

Do you happen to know if they sell the flex bangle at WDW? I thought I might get the bangle and another bead or two, while I'm there. I've been wanting something I could add to every trip, and this would be perfect!

I don't think Disney carries the bangles just the traditional. If you check your local jewelers or mall they usually have them in stock. You can look at the chamilia website they have a store locator, you will be surprised how many places locally have chamilia. Also online retailers usually sell them with free shipping and no tax.

Hi, this is my first post
I have just started a Chamilia bracelet for my dd and have got her the minnie bow, minnie murano, minnie's face and tinkerbell dangly. I originally ordered the Mrs Potts and Chip but the store contacted me last week to say it is discontinued and they can't get it for me
My dd is a huge Beauty and the Beast fan and it is perfect for her, have any of you found a store that still has it? I am in England but would be willing to pay the shipping!
Thanks

Your best bet is probably going to be eBay.

Advice needed.... new chamilia fan :)

I have enjoyed reading through this thread, and seeing the pictures in particular.

I've decided to get myself one of these bracelets and begin a Disney-themed bead collection.

Can anybody give me some advice on bracelet size. I'm looking at the classic snap-style bracelets. My wrist measures 5.5 inches. I usually can not wear bracelets cause the default/standard size of most styles is always falling off my hand. I see the Chamilia snap comes in several sizes. I guess I would need the 6.0 or the 6.7 inch. My question is which one you guys think I would need? Is .5 inches of extra room going to allow for beads all the way around or should I go with the 6.7? I'm nervous that one will be falling off...

Any advice appreciated.

Hi nu2dvc! Welcome! I have a very tiny wrist (5.5 too) and I LOVE my Chamilia bracelet! I'm not sure how they measure the lenght of the bracelet but, without including either end that makes up the clasp part my bracelt measures 6 and 3/4 inches. I have lots of room for charms and the bracelet is loose on my wrist, but it won't slide over my hand. I purchased my bracelet in a jewelry store and that was the size the jeweler recommended. I hope you find this helpful. Happy collecting!
