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.

  1. Yeah I’m also 5’2 and 105 and it says I’m supposed to be 108-121 but I look really pretty average for my height not underweight or anything

  2. I’m 5’1 (155cm) and my wrist is 4.5inches(12.5cm) it says my frame size is small and should weigh 106-117. I weigh 103 and Im in 8th grade and 12(for now) turning 13 November. In pants im size 14 in kids and 0 fits me big in women. Is this thing accurate?

  3. So apparently this thing can’t measure bodies that are too small. I’m a 5’5″ male and my wrist has a 5.75″ circumference. It didn’t recognize me under male. I had to switch to female where it told me that I was small framed and that I should weigh between 117-130 pounds. I’m at 155 right now, so it confirms I have some more weight to lose. I think this is rather accurate, but still confusing since it couldn’t even measure me. I’m almost 25, so it’s not like I have some growing left to do. I guess guys as small as me are just really uncommon.

  4. 6.75 or 6 and three quarters at 5-10. It says medium boned, and i should weigh 151-163. I weigh in the 180’s. I have really big built forearms. My wrists are way too small. It bumms me out alot.

  5. This calculator isn’t very accurate. I am 6′ tall with 8.5″ wrists. It says I’m supposed to be between 164lbs and 188lbs. When I was 17 years old I was 205lbs with a 29″ waist and thin. When I was 20 I was 228lbs at 9% body fat. It’s not possible for me to get into the 180’s without looking like a starving Ethiopian.

  6. I’m 6′, 9.3″ wrists and you can see the bone, just a big frame… what should my ideal weight be? I extrapolated (or tried to) and came up with 180-224?

  7. My wrist is 7.25 inches. I am 5’1″ and weigh 135lbs. I have larger wrists than many men I know, but I am very short. Is this abnormal?

  8. Hi, the result I keep getting, is undefined! What’s going on? I’m 160cm, 70kg and not sure about my wrist size, but nothing seems to work!
