Body Frame Sizer

Ever heard the excuse, "I've got big bones." to explain a higher number on the scale?  If your frame is much heavier or smaller, it may affect your healthy BMI by a small amount.  But let's keep it real.  Here's how to accurately measure your frame size.

Take a tape measure and measure around your wrist over the big bone on the outside of your arm.  Here's the scale for men and women, adjusted for height.


Height under 5'2"

  • Wrist size less than 5.5" -  Small
  • Wrist size 5.5" to 5.75" -  Medium
  • Wrist size over 5.75"  - Large

Height 5'2" to 5' 5"

  • Wrist size less than 6" - Small
  • Wrist size 6" to 6.25" - Medium
  • Wrist size over 6.25" - Large

Height over 5' 5"

  • Wrist size less than 6.25" - Small
  • Wrist size 6.25" to 6.5" - Medium
  • Wrist size over 6.5" - Large


Height over 5' 5"

  • Wrist size 5.5" to 6.5" - Small
  • Wrist size 6.5" to 7.5" - Medium
  • Wrist size over 7.5" - Large

When you calculate your Body Mass Index, your frame size can have a very small effect on your score.  Don't overestimate it, and use it as an excuse for staying overweight.
