Step-By-Step Glove Sizing Process

Comfort should be a priority when shopping for work gloves or disposable gloves. Gloves will only fit well and feel comfortable if you have the right size. Glove sizing can be a little more complicated than you might expect, so to help you measure glove size accurately, here’s a step-by-step guide to follow.

Measure around the hand at the
fullest part (exclude thumb).
Measure across the hand

Measure from the tip of the middle
finger to the base of the hand.

Measure the height of the hand

When determining glove size, you want to find a specific inch number. Here’s how to find your glove sizing inch number:

  1. Measure around. Wrap a fabric tape measure around the widest part of your hand. When measuring for glove size, you should always use your dominant hand — your right hand if you’re right-handed and left if left-handed. The tape measure should wrap over the top of your hand and across your palm at its widest point. Record the size of your hand at this point in inches.
  2. Measure lengthwise. Once you’ve measured around, it’s time to measure lengthwise. Spread your hand and fingers and place the tape measure at the tip of your middle finger. Then stretch the tape measure down to the base of your hand, holding it taut where your wrist begins. Again, record the length of your hand at this point in inches.
  3. Choose the larger number and round up. Now you have two figures in inches. It’s time to choose the larger figure and round up. For example, the measurement around your hand may be 5½ inches, and the lengthwise measurement of your hand may be 6¾ inches. In this case, you would take the 6¾ figure and round up to 7. That means your glove size is a 7.
  4. Convert as needed. Many manufacturers size gloves by extra small, small, medium, large and extra-large instead of by numbers. If this is the case for the gloves you need to purchase, you’ll need to convert your measurement using a glove size chart.
