It sounds about how my ring fits and I consider it a good fit.

It’s really whatever you prefer. My ring doesn’t give a “muffin top” on my finger or leave a mark, but it also doesn’t fall off. But some women like their rings tighter because they feel more secure that way.

If it’s a struggle to put on in the morning, I would think up going up .25 size like you mentioned.

When you have babies, you can always resize at that point, there’s no statute of limitations on resizing. If my fingers swell during pregnancy in the future, I’ll probably just not wear them until after the baby and I can tell if they’ll go back down to normal size or what their “regular” size will be then.

From what I understand, it’s supposed to be snug over the knuckle but comfortable after that–no “muffin top” and minimal marks. I’d go up by the .25–as long as it’s snug over the knuckle, you’ll be fine. 

ETA: Mine only leaves a mark on my finger first thing in the morning. After that, it’s fine. I have to pull/twist a bit to get it over my knuckle, but it doesn’t leave marks or create a bulge.

I wonder this too. I have two rings, one a size 4 and one a size 4.25. The 4 leaves a mark on my finger and is a little tight in the mornings and at night, though it is pretty easy to get on and off. The 4.25 slips off a little too easy for my liking and tends to spin. I think I’m a 4.175, lol.

Most people don’t realize this but your finger does not stay the same size all the time. As weird as this sounds it is true. A major impact would be the weather. The colder it is the smaller your fingers are. The more warmth and moisture there is the thicker your fingers are. Your summer size is typically a half size larger than your winter size, so be prepared for the changes.
As far as how the ring should feel it is more of a personal taste. I like for my ring to fit loosely and yet provide some resistance so it won’t fall off easily. Some people, however, like it to be more of a tighter fit. Also make sure you are sizing the right hand you want it to be on because our hands are not the same size.
