Hello, not sure if guys post here or not but just need some advice. When I intially got my wedding ring it was a size 10 and was always a bit loose. So I recently lost some weight from eating healthier and my ring became way too loose so I finally took it in to get sized. They sized it the first time at an 8.5 and it was just way too tight after wearing it around and definitely gave me a muffin top per say. So I took it back and they resized it again just a few days ago at a size 9 plus a little and it still feels a little tight. Although my ring goes on easy and comes off pretty easily as well. The guy at the jewlery store said it looks like it fits because you don’t want it slipping off but when I tried it on I just kinda felt it was a little tight but it could be in my mind. If I push up on the ring from the bottom there is a little gap so not sure if I have to get used to it. Although, after wearing it for a day I just feel a dull ache in my finger but kinda nervous about going back yet again to have them resize it a third time.
Here’s a pic for reference

In my expeience, most staff at jewelry stores seem to be trained to size rings as tight as possible. Most people I know are more comfortable sizing up a bit from the store recommendation.
Going from your photo, that’s a bit tighter than I would be comfortable wearing, but I also HATE the feeling of a tight ring. My fingers tend to swell a lot and I wouldn’t be able to wear my ring over half the time if I sized it as small as some stores have wanted me to. (I have my rings sized on the large size and then have sizing beads added, so the ring stays on when my fingers aren’t swollen, but they they do swell, there’s room for the swelling.)
Was the ring sizer they used to size you the same width as your actual ring? You generally wear a larger size in wider rings, so if they sized you using a narrow ring sizer, it won’t be correct.

They used a ring sizer that was definitely narrower than my wedding ring. The ring sizer I tried on definitely fit with no issue and didn’t feel tight at all but it was narrower than my ring. I know I have to get it resized bigger again but not sure how much bigger I need to go. Right now it’s a 9 plus a little. I’m thinking I might go to several different jewelry stores tomorrow to get sized and see what size they think I am and try on some ring sizers that are actually similar to my ring. Then I can take my ring back to my jeweler and have them fix it yet again ugh.

If it’s uncomfortable then definitely go up a half size, but I wouldn’t go up more then that. Also too in warmer weather our fingers swell quite a bit too, so in the winter it’ll feel bigger. I size my rings on the bigger side for summer, and in the winter I use these rubber ring sizer things that wrap around the bottom of the band. But I still have the same issue as you, I’m considering taking my wedding band in YET AGAIN to have it sized up a bit. My jeweler is probably sick of seeing me.

Maybe go up a quarter size? 9.25? Im sized at 7.5 but prefer 7.75 for my finger. It still fits without falling off and is comfortable to me.

If they’re sizing the ring, you can go up a quarter size for sure. My e-ring is a 7 but it definitely spins and during the winter its way loose. I got my wedding band made to 6.75 and it’s perfect so I am going to have my e ring sized down as well. The .25 made all the difference but I tried on a 6.5 and it was definitely tight enough to cause some discomfort if my fingers swelled etc. I have also heard as above posters have said that wider rings fit tighter so you may need some more room. Maybe the half size is too much though.

Looks too tight. Also, is that your middle finger you are wearing the ring on?

I have a very wide band ring 10mm across. When they sized it for me they gave me 3 of the sizer bands to put on at the same time. That way you will get a feel for what it might be like once the wider band is on your hand. Hope you hit the right size. Third time’s the charm.

I had to get me ring sized a few times, so don’t feel bad. The thicker the band, the bigger size you’ll need to go too. I originally got a 6, which was good for summer but the ring fell off my hand during winter. Got sized by jewler as a 5, but that felt just a little to snug for my own taste. I now have a 5.5 and have no complaints.

Lol, no its my ring finger. The pic does look a little weird that it could be middle though.

Such a nice ring! Looks tight for me. I prefer a spin and movement toward the knuckle.
