I have that issue!  It goes from loose to tight all the time.  I only wear it when out of the house, and I can’t wear it when I’m on a plane, it gets crazy tight.  I think my issue is fluctuating hydration levels and also being overweight.  There’s a lot of skin on my finger to swell and lessen.  I’m hoping as I lose weight it goes away!!

It will change, it’s normal. Your fingers will swell when you’re hot or be thinner in the cold. If it needs an adjustment temporarily you can get a spacer put on to help it stay snug. I wouldn’t get it resized unless it needs a permanent change (like if you ordered the wrong size).

This is normal. Your finger will swell in heat and constrict in cold weather. I find that my ring *just* about stays on in Winter now, and in summer isn’t *too* tight. At normal room temperature it’s a perfect size. There isn’t really anything you can do to avoid this.

@tropical_chic:  I think its normal for it to fluctuate a little. Your hydration, body temp, water retention, etc. will all effect it. 

Unless it is a majorly wrong size like….falling off/cutting off circulation ALL the time, I wouldn’t worry too much.

@tropical_chic:  Yep. Happens to me every day too. It’s totally normal and unfortunately you can’t do anything about it. But you have to find a happy medium. If it is so loose that it can fall off, then you definitely need to size it down. Mine is loose enough to spin but not loose enough to fall off.

It’s normal! When I wake up in the morning my ring feels real snug. In humid weather is also really snug but then towards the end of the day or during cold days it feels really loose. I have big nobly knuckles so I think they may be the culprits.

It’s normal. Most of the time mine has wiggle room and sometimes it feels like it’s going to spin off but right now it’s tight because I just woke up. I wouldn’t worry about resizing it. After a month, I’m finally getting used to it.

Yeah, and it drives me insane – almost like you need two rings in different sizes to account for the fluctuations! I prefer to err on the side of larger, but then it’s loose and spinning through the cold months. 🙁
