Sizing women's leather gloves is a simple task that makes all the difference when shopping. Because leather gloves are an investment and will last a long time, it is best to purchase your exact size. Glove sizes are measured in inches and then categorized into small, medium, large or extra-large. Knowing your size will also be helpful if ordering gloves online, where you cannot try them on before purchasing. If you already have a pair of gloves and need to know the size, measure around where the knuckles would go and match the inches to the nearest size.
Measure your dominant hand in inches by wrapping the tape measure around your four fingers, just below the knuckle.
Locate the nearest inch after measuring around your hand. If half-sizes are available where you will be shopping and, if necessary for your measurements, round up to the nearest half-inch.
Locate your correct size. A size small is six to six and a half inches. A size medium is seven to seven and a half inches, and a size large is seven and a half to eight inches. Extra-large gloves are eight and a half to nine inches.
