Boxing Glove Fit Recommendations

Society Nine’s boxing gloves are designed to have a fit that is more narrow and shallow than a traditional boxing glove. Reducing the depth and width of our gloves allows for a closer fit that prevents your hands from ‘floating’ when striking. Our boxing gloves can be worn with or without our Society Nine hand wraps that provide additional support and protection for your hands. The choice to wrap is yours.

If you are new to combat sports or are not sure what size gloves would suit you best it is always a great idea to ask your coaches and/or trainers for their recommendations. However, to help you choose, we have compiled information female fighters shared with us to identify the three main factors they consider when choosing the size/weight of their gloves.

There are two parts to understanding the
purpose of your gloves: First, the type of combat sport you are practicing (Boxing, Muay Thai, Krav Maga, MMA, cardio boxing classes etc.) and second, the focus/intent of your training (speed, accuracy, power, sparring etc).

Weight of the Athlete:
While the size of the glove is something to take into consideration, the weight of the athlete using the gloves can impact what weight gloves that athlete should use. This is because an athlete’s weight can be a representation of the force generated in striking. For example, the jab of a 5’3” 120lbs woman will likely have a different impact than that of a 5’8” 175lbs woman. Because of that, it is often suggested that athletes choose the weight of gloves that will provide the proper protection and support their hands need for the force they may generate when striking. Below is a basic guide:

The final factor in choosing a pair of gloves is the actual measurements of the gloves. As stated above, Society Nine’s boxing gloves are more narrow and shallow than traditional boxing gloves, creating a better fit for a woman’s hands. Whether you have petite or large hands, choosing a glove that caters more towards your hand size will ensure a good fit, allowing the athlete to form a proper fist and preventing your hands from shifting or ‘floating’ when striking. Below are the width measurements of our boxing gloves.

Examples of athletes choosing gloves:

Athlete: Grace

Athlete: Lynn

Athlete: Meghan
