How to determine the right fit

Let’s start with a misconception.  Very simply, there isn’t a standard length that’s right for you.  Your belly ring should not be too tight and definitely not too long. If it's too tight, you risk putting too much pressure on your piercing, and if it's too long, the bar will stick out and get snagged and pull onto things.  Please consult our Piercing Concierge™ for more details on fitting, jewelry and more.


A comfortable belly ring length is about 1 to 2mm longer than the distance between the top of your piercing and the lip or ridge of your navel. In other words, to get the perfect length, measure the distance from the top of your piercing to the shelf of your navel and add 1 to 2mm.


Aside from the length of the belly ring there's one more important factor to consider - the shape and size of your navel. If your navel is petite or closes in when you sit, certain styles may not be unsuitable and could potentially cause discomfort or irritation to your piercing. You simply want to ensure there’s enough room for the belly ring to sit comfortably in your navel.


To find the right length, watch the video and follow along.


NOTE: You will need are a clear plastic ruler with millimeter markings on it and your phone. 


IMPERIAL SYSTEM: If you prefer working in inches 2mm is just over 1/16-inch.  To increase accuracy, use a ruler that goes down to 1/32-inch lines.  Measure between 1/32 and just over 1/16 of an inch over and follow the averaging below.






    The following sizes are listed on our website: 5, 6.5, 8, 10, 11 and 12mm. 

    If you're unsure or need a size that isn't listed just select Per Piercing Concierge™ and add the size in the special instructions.  We can custom make any size - it is worth the wait.  Also, don’t hesitate to reach out to confirm availability as often we do not list all of our inventory and may already have the size you're looking for. 


    Just a reminder – our Piercing Concierge™ is one text message away to help you find that perfect fit. We cannot encourage you enough to send us your pictures to review and confirm your measurements.  And we will do more than this.  You will also get our input on the jewelry shape and style that best fits your navel.
