The diameter of the candle itself is about 1 1/8 inches. It does not fit in standard taper candle holders as is – BUT – there is a plastic adapter included than is inserted into the bottom of the candle. This adapter will help the candle rest upright "above" the rim of a taper opening. Not ideal but these are the best Halloween candles I could find. And they can be turned off and off by pressing down on the flame tip – you don't have to remove them from candleholders.
