**This bracelet is made with high quality, latex-free cording. It is a "stretchy" bracelet. Be sure to refrain getting it wet or exposed to soap. It will weaken the bracelet and cause it to break. Also, avoid over-stretching the bracelet unnecessarily. Over-stretching it will also weaken the bracelet. When placing it on your wrist, gently stretch it enough to roll it onto your wrist.
