My e-ring is about a quarter of a size too big, and I like it. I like that it “flops” to the side a bit. My fingers tend to swell in the summet heat, and I’m assuming the same will be true with pregnancy, so I didn’t want to risk not being able to wear my ring for a period of time. My knuckles are large enough that I’ve never felt in danger of my rings sliding off, but they move around the bottom portion of my finger freely.

bbbria:  Heehee I love when my ring flops to one side too 🙂 When Fiance sees it like that, he gets a cute little frustrated look on his face and re-centers it for me. So adobable.

Elizabear:  you MUST get your ring sized properly or you could lose it. I thought I was a 6 but it came off too easily so I got it sized to 5.5. Here’s tips for a proper fit:

it should take 1 second to put on but 3 to take off (should require some wiggle to take off)

It should not be comfortable at the knuckle.

Sometimes it’ll feel snug depending on swelling but that’s okay, it should still be comfortable.

If you use a jewelers ring sizer, make sure it’s a similar width to your ering- thicker the ring, higher the size.

My rings come off very easily over my knuckle. My issue with sizing is that the bottom of my finger is meatier so it is bigger than my knuckle. So I have my rings sized to fit when my fingers are their biggest. Otherwise, I would have to take them off all the time. I’ve had them sized that way from day one and have never had any issues with them coming off. Knock wood!

TheGridMonster:  Haha ring flopping is the best, but perhaps not for the OCDers among us.
