Weight lifteing gloves

My doctor is recommending weight lifting gloves to wear for my arthritics when I use weights or my kettlebell. Can anyone tell me how to figure out size? I found some at amazon but not sure what to do.

    Meg, I don't have any great advice.  My hands are tiny so I just bought small.  IMO, you might want to try a few brands on at the store if you can.  I have a pair of Athletic Works (I think that's the brand) that I like and a pair of pink GoFit ones that I can't use for weights or kettlebells bc they're too uncomfortable.  I wear them when I use bands now.

    Does anyone know how to measure for these gloves? I have small hands but don't know how small.

    I measure where the base of my fingers meets the outer edges of the palm.  I would highly suggest if you can trying some gloves on at a store.  I just went by a store yesterday and found my hand is too wide for women's gloves and I'm a petite woman! (5'1").

    Thanks jusca. I was going to try amazon but it makes more sense to actually try some on. I have arthritis in my left thumb and my doctor suggested weightlifting gloves if I wanted to continue lifting weights.

    You're welcome, meg.  I hope you find some gloves that work out for you.
