I recently went ring shopping (as im not yet engaged) and figured out that my ring finger is 8.5, and all the rings there only fit my little pinky finger! I felt like a giant picking up baby rings! its not like Im a big person, im 5’3” and around 120 lbs so my meat cleaver hands dont make any sense! seriously, I knew i didnt need a man around the house to open jars…or break a chickens neck apparently, but WTH this is just rediculous!

I have man hands. I’m size 9.5. Weird part? DH has small hands, mine are actually bigger than his. It makes both of us self consious!

I too have man hands! I hated trying rings on in the store and them only coming to my knuckle! But I loved getting to slip my perfectly fitted ring on for the first time! 🙂

@Koifish: yup! Man hands here. Sized 9.75. 8″ wrists. 5’10” though. stock rings dont even fit my pinky!

I do! I wear a 9 (I can fit an 8.5, but I like my rings loose.) Mine and FI’s are almost exactly the same size. I think mine are a tad bigger.

I’m 5 foot nothing, and my hands are bigger than my FI’s! I like to thank my “Man Hands”, in part, for my athleticism. 🙂

My BFF has really big fingers, and she’s extremely skinny–like 5’7″ and 120 or so. I don’t get it, lol.

Hmmm, my ring size is 8, but I have long skinny fingers. I am a little over 6 feet tall though, so the size of my hands is proportional to the size of my body.

My e-ring is a 9, but I’m pretty sure ill need both e-ring and band sized up to a 9.5, since the bands are thick.
I’m short and chubby so my hands seem right on me though.

Yay im not alone! I thought it was just me since all my friends have such dainty little hands. plus i saw a thread for size 3 rings and i was like whaa!? so small!

My hands freak me out. I can’t look at them for too long. Like they’re way too big compared to my wrists, but just the palms/backs of my hands are too big. My fingers are obnoxiously long and skinny. I’m not even a size 4 ring.

I wear an 8/8.5 but I don’t really have man hands…I don’t think lol Before I gained weight (basically before my SO lol) I was only a size 7. I’m hoping to need to get my ring resized before the wedding and be a 7 again
I more hate that I have short nail beds!! I HATE that about my fingers, it makes them feel so short & stubby

Yay! Glad I’m not alone. I started a similar thread today feeling almost certain that no-one else was going to understand.
I’m 5’6 and my BF is 5’9 and his hands are tiny compared to mine. I literally dwarf them (and I have long fingernails too to make it worse). He’s got the tiniest little things, really skinny and delicate and he’s so embarrassed by the whole ring thing.
At least I can tell him we’re not the only ones 😀 Yay!

@purpleglitterglam: I’ve never measured, so I’m not sure
