    Anyone Else Have Different Sized Wrists?

    I have a 7.5 inch left wrist. When I try and put a metal bracelet on my right wrist however, it's too small, I can't even close it. (I don't wear watches on my right wrist anyways.) Am I the only one who is like this?

    Nope. Likely far from it. My left is 7.25 and my right is 7.5.......I'm right-handed....

    size differences are normal in dominant vs non-dominant hand.

    I've been wearing watches on my left wrist since I was 12 and I'm now 54. My watch wrist (left) is a lot smaller than my right wrist, in fact you can actually see the difference. My left wrist has a permanent indentation from my tight fitting watch straps over the last 42 years. None of my metal watch straps will fit my right wrist without adding more links.

    Unless you are ambidexterous and use that trait a lot you would likely have a dominant arm.

    As you use the dominant arm more the carpal muscles will develop more. Ergo, your wrist will get larger.

    Funnily enough, my non-dominant wrist is just a smidge larger than my right. I think this might be due to the fact that I played a lot of cricket as a kid (batted right-handed), and your left hand is the dominant arm (supporting most of the bat load) when you're right-handed. Even though I switched to tennis and other sports later, this this slight difference in wrist size has remained.
