Getting nitrile gloves to fit well, like a glove:
To make using disposable exam gloves
work the gloves need to fit properly. If they are too tight they will be hard to put on and they will be uncomfortable to wear. Too loose and they will fall off or bunch up around your fingers rendering them almost useless. The only sure fire way to buy the right size for you is to try on the disposable glove and see if it fits. This is not the most practical advice since most gloves are sold in sealed boxes or you are purchasing them from an online medical supply store
. What I would recommend is buying one box of the gloves you want to try and then purchasing them in the next size up and the next size down. After you are 100% on size then you can take advantage of the discounts you can get from buying gloves in cases instead of individual boxes. To narrow down which sizes you should start with you can use the "Glove Size Estimates". Measure around the palm and use that to get a general idea of glove sizing. Keep in mind that different brands will have different standards.
