    I want to purchase a pair of Machingers with the $10 gift certificate I won in the online shop hop; but am not sure whether to get S/M or M/L . Can anybody help? I googled the Machingers website and the recommendations for my hand is S/M; but wondering if they are true to size. I measure 6 3/4" from where wrist meets hand to tip of my middle finger.
    Looking forward to hear what any of you have to say before I order.
    Thanks, Nancy

    My hand measure almost exactly the same. I buy the s/m but find I have to keep pulling them on. I will buy larger next time. Just my opinion though.

    I have short fingers and small fits me well. If you have long nails or slender fingers, definitely buy the next size up.

    My hand is about the same size. I found the S/M was a little short in the fingers. I bought the M/L and found them very comfortable. Snug enough but not tight.

    Congrats on winning the $10 gift cert. I won one, but the site had VERY little to offer and what I did find that I would buy was overpriced. Sadly, I decided to forego using it.

    I have mine on as I type. I tried them on at my local quilt shop because I wanted them to fit snug not sloppy. On my package it says XS so I guess that means extra small? I have medium length fingernails..1/8 inch passsed fingertip? Measuring from the palm side of my hand is 7 in.? or just the middle finger from web to fingernail tip 3 1/4. Don't know if this will help but I LOVE my machingers!

    i'm the same size as you and purchased the S/M and they were way too big.

    i returned them and got the smaller size (XS) and now i'm thrilled with them

    when I was buying things, my mum would always say...you can make something smaller but you can't make it bigger....I use that approach to everything.....if the gloves are to big you may be able to make them smaller...too small you'll have the hassel of sending them back !

    Go to this website and look for the sizing table.
