    My mother has very small wrists - she has 128mm circumference wrists.

    We bought her a 38mm watch with the Milanese loop and on its smallest setting it is still loose. Has anyone found any good 3rd party bands that fit sizes that small? I see many sold on Amazon but when people post reviews about their "small wrists" they are still bigger than that.

    Greetings,
    I have a smaller wrist than your mother - measures 127 MM - the sports bands sold by Moko or the actual Apple Sport band fits - the small band on the last notch. I also ordered my watch with the 38 MM SS with ML and don't wear it b/c same issue as your mom. I did try on the Apple Modern Buckle at the store and the small band fits perfect. I haven't tried any of the knock off MB bands. I also purchased the official Apple Link Band and had to spend another 100 bucks at a jeweler store to have them reverse engineer Apple design so I could remove an additional 2 links (you can only remove 8 links yourself) to make it fit perfect on me and not lock. I've ordered the knock off Hermes Cuff from eBay but it doesn't fit right b/c of my wrist size. I might have to pony up some money to get a custom made one from Etsy. I hope this helps!!

    Cheers,
    Bobbie

    Thanks Bobbie - That's helpful. I'll check out the Moko straps. Did you ever try the Classic Buckle, in either the new or current version? It claims it will go down to 125mm on the Apple sizing PDF.

    Greetings,
    I have not but I can tell you the Apple sizing guide is spot on - the Sports band small says it will go to 125 and I believe that's true. I would trust that would fit but I haven't actually tried on any of the leather straps.

    Cheers,

    I know this thread is super-old, but I was wondering if any of you have found good watch bands that are for 127mm wrists. My mom recently got the woven nylon band and it does seem to fit her pretty well. But I keep thinking there must be better options out there.
