Question about FixxGlove Sizing for Women

I am interested in ordering a FixxGlove. Their smallest size is an XS, which they say fits hands with a diameter under 18 cm. My hand's diameter, measured according to their instructions, is 13.5 cm - so, much smaller than the 18 cm they list. So I'm concerned their smallest size might still be too big.

Have any women who also have small hands ordered these gloves, and, if so, do they fit?

I have tried emailing the company twice and they do not respond. I haven't tried calling because I am in the US.

Any help would be most appreciated!

I wonder if you are measuring correctly? 13.5cm seems tiny for an adult? I have a FixxGlove that I no longer use but fished it out from a drawer. My hands are (also) quite small, and I measured as per this site guide https://www.danmicglobal.com/fixxglovepalmarorthosis.aspx a circumference of 19.5cm and sure enough the label on my FixxGlove shows 's' for small.

Edit: I note you said diameter, and as per the photo I measured around, or circumference. So if you meant diameter that's possibly 27cm and maybe a bit more, which would be possibly XL. My flat diameter by the MCP knuckles is 8.5cm.

Yes, I meant circumference. But more importantly: You are right - I measured wrong! I have no idea how I did it because I measured twice. But I used a different measuring tape today and got 19 cm. So I am right in there with a size small. Thanks so much for setting me straight!

Did you find the fixx glove helpful? I have used custom splints in the past and found them very effective. But this particular hand has multiple minor contractures, and the custom spllints I've used did not do as well for multiple fingers. So I thought the glove might work better.

Thanks again!!

I've had RT and my hands are usually pretty good most of the time. However, in winter, or after excessive use for things such as yard work, sport, DIY, etc, they can feel a bit tight and sore, and I will use the Fixxglove for a few nights. I can't really say if it does or doesn't help except by easing my mind.

Edit to add, you can adjust the degree of straightness or curve by gently bending the metal stiffener. Since it's a glove you may not get the same degree of straightening as a splint without some adjustment.
