Frame Size (Wrist) Calculator

Use my wrist circumference to determine my frame size.

Since bone structure varies in size from person to person, researchers have added frame size as a factor in helping to determine someone's ideal weight. Knowing your frame size can help you set reasonable weight goals. Enter your height and wrist circumference and this calculator will use standard insurance industry tables to show your frame size and ideal weight range.

lil   hey could you please tell me whats up with my body - 3/17/2014 7:54:56 PM

splooge   @Luara its just giving an average range. You can be 10-15 pounds over if youre lean ripped with muscle. like im 5 11 with 6 inch wrist and my fighter weight class is 1555(which includes weight cutting). just google manny pacquio wrist size and you should get an article from badlefthook or bloodyelbow. and yes its acurate when you want to pick a weight class if you are a fit athlete. - 12/12/2013 1:18:10 AM

jayyie   I'm a female 167cm tall and 14.5cm wrist and the ideal weight was 54 - 60 kg, but i'm 44 kg .. hmm .. - 8/27/2013 3:44:56 AM

Chloe   I have a six inch and a quarter wrist, and I'm 5'1. I have a very large frame for my size. :)) - 5/23/2013 3:06:33 PM

gobble gobble: )   seems fairly accurate to me. 5ft 1inch, 21 inch waist, 28 inch hips, large hands and long toes/fingers, wide feet that are growing in size quote fast now 16. I also swim and run, so look very slim but even slimmer at 45kg because of my bone density - don't feel too underweight though. calculator gives good assumptions. :) - 4/25/2013 1:24:15 AM

Rudolph   Im 16, Male, my right wrist is 15.8 cm, left wrist 15.2 - 3/13/2013 12:33:49 PM

mo   5'9 70 kg wrist size 7inch i have a medium frame ideal weight 67-73 kg so thats good - 2/28/2013 3:09:51 PM

roddy   i'm 6'5", 92kg and my wrist size is 7.1, size 12.5 feet. I seem to be in balance with the chart but feel I should be heavier. Very general!!!! - 2/20/2013 9:24:52 AM

Joe   I'm 6'2 and my wrist size is 9.25 inches. According to this I have a top end ideal weight of 197. This seems low, just after highschool I was 235 and in good shape... I just wonder if this is too general to account for muscle mass etc... - 2/5/2013 1:18:03 PM

Katie   im 5'5, my wrist is 4 inches, i have a small frame and my ideal weight is 117-130, i am 109! am i underweight? - 1/30/2013 6:44:40 AM

Anne   This is complete nonsense. My wrist is 5.5" and according to this, I have a "small" frame. I nor anyone else I know would consider myself "petite" by any means since I have quite a "big-boned" torso (with not a substantial amount of fat either). - 12/23/2012 8:14:57 PM

Lebo   Ok, my wrist is 16cm, my height is 173cm and I weigh 59kgs but accOrding to this I shOuld weigh frOm 62 to 68 dOes this make me "underweight"? Need tO know sOo I can stOp my diet if that's the case *cOnfused face* - 12/21/2012 5:25:01 AM

GG   5'8.5" and a wrist size of 5.3 inches! I knew I had a small frame but the lowest weight in my target is 126lbs and the most I've ever weighed is 125 ish and that's when I was eating loads of junk food and never exercising. Guess I'm just lucky haha - 12/15/2012 10:20:45 PM

Ray   Hi Everyone. Something I noticed with this is that if you have a wrist size of 7.5 and are 6 foot like myself when you type it in here its says Medium build which is wrong. Whats happening is its reading it as if its 7.05 cause you get the same results where as if you put in 7.51 you will get a proper reading... My Ideal weight according to this is 162 ya screw that i wanna be at least 195 but mainly muscle :) some day ill reach that... - 10/24/2012 7:47:05 AM

Laura   Personally I think this gives unrealistic results, I did this for myself and my partner. He is 5ft 11 and it said he should be 163 lbs at this weight he would look ill! I know this is only a guide, but it's far from even giving anything close to sensible. - 10/18/2012 10:50:06 PM
