    I’ve never heard the term “tapered fingers” before, but I get muffin top all the time even though my rings spin and they technically can be sized down a quarter of a size.

    I have my rings sized at a size 6 to allow for the lovely Midwestern US humidity in summer.  I could wear a 5.75 but especially with two rings, I like how the size 6 feels better.

    Here’s how the two rings look:

    Here’s just one ring:

    And here’s my other ring that I wear solo:

    I just thought I had fleshy fingers!

    I’ve never heard the term ‘tapered fingers’ before, but it perfectly describes mine! I have mine a size 7, but I could probably take a 6.5 (the jeweler who sized me said that a 7 was the absolute largest I should go). It slips on an off VERY easily when I’m cold or my hands are soapy, but is much harder to move when my hands are warm/swollen. Despite this I still have a teeny muffin top, but I have a very narrow band so I think it looks ok.

     

    Not the best picture to see the muffin top, but my nails are afwul just now so I don’t want to take a better one!

    I have a little bit of muffin top.  When my fingers are together, it sits better.  I don’t care though.  This is the size I should wear and at least I don’t feel scared that it’ll fall off in cold weather or when wet. (This picture was also taken in 96 degree Florida heat, for reference)

    My e-ring band is soooo skinny. 1.8mm. Finger muffin top is inevitable.

    I’d say my fingers are tapered… as in the knuckle won’t keep the ring from sliding off. For this reason, I always wear my rings tighter than the average person seems to, so I get a bit of muffin top :-/ I’m thinking of sizing it up a bit but am worried about it sliding around.

    ETA: I am going to have to get the e-ring and band sized up when I have them soldered together, since they are definitely too tight and muffin-y once it gets that wide.

    I would rather have a little muffin top than risk losing my ring! I had a problem with muffin top when i first got my ring, but now that I’vebeen wearing it for almost a year, my finger has an indent where the ring sits and it doesn’t look like I have muffin top anymore 🙂

    @chouette: I never heard of “tapered” either, nor carrot fingers. I stumbled on this post by accident. Thank goodness I’m not alone. The jeweler told me I had “small knuckles” which my Fiance jokingly refers to as my “crayola fingers”. 

    When they measured my ring it was at a 7.5. When it’s Shark Week – I go up to 7 & 3/4ths & when it’s hot outside, I can go to an 8. In winter or when I’m dehydrated & unmoisturized, a 7. 

    I completely understand, I’ve flung rings across the room accidentally.
