I get really bad hand/finger swelling when I’m hot. I’m working on losing weight so I know that will help but how tight is your ring? If I go up a half size it’s too big (even in the winter/no swelling) but I feel like it looks so tight.

I think it’s totally personal preference. I like my rings very snug so there is no possibility of them coming off unintentionally. So they at times look a little tight. Also, in very hot humid weather I cannot even get some of them on or off, or I need to use soap and water on my hands to be able to do so.
Others like their rings pretty loose.

I have the same issue. My rings spin freely on my finger while not swollen but take a little pull to get over my knuckle. This will be my first summer with wearing both so we will see how it goes. Maybe go up .25 instead of a half size. I’m a 5.75 for reference and don’t have the “muffin top” effect

This is me now after a 4 mile walk with the dog. It’s only 75 so I know they’ll swell more as it gets to 90 today. But last night when I went to bed in the nice AC it looked so much nicer.

I can’t stand tight rings (and actually like spinning) so mine is on the loose side. Whenever it feels *too* loose (in the winter or otherwise), I wear a tiny 1mm spacer that’s sized down on top of it to lock it on.

That sounds like a great idea to me. I never would have thought of that.

I don’t like tight rings and my are probably about a 1/4-1/2 size bigger than my jeweler would have recommended.
I’m not too worried about them falling off though.

I can’t stand my rings to be tight. It gets worse when you add a wedding band to it. I never noticed my ering being too tight on its own even through the summer, but once I added my wedding band it definitely fit more snug. I have a stand in band that is one size larger than my actual wedding band that I’ll wear during particularly humid days or days when my hands are feeling extra puffy.

I’m having this issue with summer heat and baby weight. I am spending $200 on an Etsy standin moissanite ring. Can’t wait to get it!

I do the same – works great!

Mine fit about like yours in hot weather. You have tapered fingers like me also, so it’s almost like I have to wedge my rings on to get them to stay securely. It’s uncomfortable right after I put them on, but I get used to it after a couple of minutes.
I’d recommend not wearing it when you walk the dog on general principle, but especially if the swelling gets so bad. Perhaps a silicone ring would work better for that kind of thing.

I have tapered ish fingers (wider at base) 🙄 so my rings always “look” tight even when they are not. They take a second of wiggling to take off which I’ve heard is a good rule of thumb for how your rings should fit. They do spin but like some of the other PPs, I actually like the spinning and glancing down to readjust them! Here’s what they look like most of the time (my solitaire spins more than my wedding band, both same size):

I take mine off at night, and it’s tight enough that you can visually see that my ring finger is rough and callused and the knuckle is sometimes swollen.
I also have an index finger ring that glides over the knuckle without too much resistance as that’s how the sales associate told me it should fit. This was how my e-ring was originally sized, but I took it in 1/4. I ended up losing that index finger ring for a month and eventually found it in my lab coat bag. It must’ve come off when I took my lab coat off! That helped me decide to not resize my e-ring again… I can deal with the calluses.

My loose enough that it spins a bit on my finger but tight enough to take a solid few seconds of twisting to take off.
