    I’m 5 foot 1, and chubby haha. I wear a 5.75, but like my rings better in a 6.

    @Ice_cream:  I don’t think a 6 is large! I think 6-8 is medium and anything over an 8.5 is considered on the larger side.

    I’m a US ring size 7 and 5’0 tall, but I never thought of myself as having large hands, especially. I certainly don’t have fat fingers…. if I look at my hand then the actual “body” of my hand is very wide, but my fingers look quite slim…. I would even say that my hands look quite bony.

    At the moment I’m reallly fat because I had a break from my diet for 8 weeks post wedding, but my fingers have always been the same size regardless of my weight. The only time they get bigger is in hot weather, when they swell.

    I’m a 4.5-5. My fiancé bought me a promise right, size 5.5, and was so proud he knew my ring size. He was so proud (if wrong) that I never bothered to get it sized down half a size. It spun and, if my hands were cold, was really loose. 

    My e-ring is an heirloom, size 6.5. If I’m cold and shake my hands too much to will slip right off!  I’ve put off getting it sized. I need to.

    I just wanted to say that the sizing works the other way also. I’m a size 12/14, and 5’8″ and I wear a size 5. So I have tiny little fingers, but I am not a tiny little person!

    I’m between 6.5 – 7. I don’t think height has anything to do with finger size, I’m 5’9″ and my BFF is 5’3″ and her rings are loose on me.

    I’m a 5.75 – so I picked 5-5.5

    I’m a pretty medium sized person, not tiny but not large and I wear about a 6-6.5 depending on my weight. I prefer rings a little loose though. I’ve always considered myself to have tiny hands/fingers, so I don’t think 6 is big at all.

    I’m 5’8″, thin/athletic build and I where a 4. I just have small hands and feet; I’m a weirdo 🙂

    DH is a jeweler. Size 7 is the “sample size” of jewelry, so about average. I wear a 4.75 on my ring finger but that wouldn’t fit on my right hand ring finger as it is my stronger hand (5.5).

    I wear a 7.5 but my wedding set is so wide I got it sized to an 8.5 so it would fit how I like it. I get really self conscious about my giant ring size, but no one ever asks, so I don’t tell and all is well!

    I believe my e-ring is a 5, but the band (from the same store) is a 5.5. I’m 5’4″ and overweight according to BMI. My ring size has been stable for a long time, even when I was 30 pounds heavier and technically obese.

    My rings are a size 8 and a bit tight.  The ladies on the bee have tiny fingers!!! I don’t consider mine particularly large
