Mine are super skinny but gigantic. My hands are bigger than any man that I put them up to, not thicker but overall bigger. Think, like Angelina Jolie, they’re skeletal but huge. A 1 carat ring on other women looks beautiful, on me it looks tiny.

haha, i always feel like i have man hands, i mean, they look girly enough, but they’re huge, and the same size as my SO’s! Ring size is 8 and my sister-in-law’s ( who just got engaged)  is a 4! to be fair, she is a tiny, short little thing, and really, i don’t feel like my hands are TOO big other than when i go to try on rings in stores and they only fit on my pinkies!

I’m 6’1, my ring size is a 7, but that’s just because I have skinny fingers compared to the rest of my hand.  I can palm a basketball, no problem.  My hands are actually bigger than my SO’s.  His fingers happen to be a larger size though.

I totally have man hands. My ering is a size 9. I guess my hands don’t look disproportionate to the rest of my frame (I’m 5’8″), but I have big ol’ palms and long fingers.

I wear a 7 but my hands look manly. I have a no fear attitude when it comes to turning a wrench as hard as I can if needed working on cars and have busted the crap out of all my knuckles, so they are way more beat up than they should be.

Man hands here!  I’ve got an 8.5  I hate how ‘small’ they make my not that small diamond look!

I guess I am not so bad off. I was thinking this same thing recently – that I had manhands. I started getting really self conscious of my hands aging or not being feminine enough when I started trying on rings. Now I am constantly aware of them.

I think they are kind of average, really. But they just seem so much less youthful and feminine than a lot of the hands I have seen on here showing off their rings. What a stupid thing to feel bad about!

I am 5’7″ and a ring size 6.5/7. It changes with the weather. I have size 7 rings. They fit fine in the summer. My finger is swimming in them now that it’s cold. I have very short fingers. If I match palms to my husband, he can fold his fingers over the tops of mine at his mid-knuckle.

I have the mini version of my Fiance and my father’s hands (yay similar genetic heritage) with slightly nicer nails because it doesn’t look like I tried to reach into the food disposal. My friends like to laugh at how tiny my hands are, but they’re only small because my fingers are short and stubby, my palms aren’t really that much smaller than theirs. I do a lot of fiddly crafts that make my hands really strong and they definitely don’t look very feminine. That’s why I like to post the close up of my ring rather than the hand shot 😛

ME! ME! ME! I am a size 7.5 and my 2 carat doesn’t look stunningly huge on my finger. I just don’t understand why I couldn’t be a size 5????!!!!

5’7″ with size 8 fingers here! I prefer an 8.5 so it can twirl a little. SO calls them my working hands. Not sure what I will do when I get a ring…I kinda just want a small one so that maybe it can just blend into my hand and no one will notice anything, hands or ring haha

I have tiny hands with a size 4 ring finger (its actually smaller than that but I thats what we bought). Fiance calls them nanna hands because they are small and thin with LOTS of wrinkles!! 🙁 Least you have hands 🙂
