    I too have very similar shaped fingers and when I went down in size to the exact combo you have (a thin solitaire and a thin diamond band), and I got tons of comments about how my ring looked painfully tight but it wasn’t and I could take the ring on and off easily. I too was self conscious about it. But I will say this, I went up in size with my new ring and it looked better and it actually felt better too. I would try going up to a 6. I think ultimately it will feel better and if your fingers are at all like mine then they will swell from time to time, and if its is already slightly (even the slightest) too tight, it wont hurt to go up a little. I truly don’t think it will slip off. But I hate to say that and it does. However, at the same time, if it feels good and you’re confident that it is the correct size for you then keep it. Muffin top is just a thing we have to deal with sometimes 🙂

    I think thin bands create that stupid muffin top….I had a knife edge and I had the same situation.  It fit me fine, but I was always self conscious about the muffin top.

    This time around I went with a wider band and sized it up a half size and I am much happier with how it looks and feels.

    Hmm… if it was me and the ring fit good besides the muffin top, I’d keep it as is.. I would hate to loose my ring and girl, your diamond is gorgeous! I’m also a size 5.5, and when my finger swells, I have a muffin top but when I’m cold, it spins. It’s cold here!

    Usd to size up my rings till my mid forties because I didn’t like the feel of a close fitting ring but I’ve lost many rings because of it. When I got my e ring I sized up a mere quarter size (6.25) and it drove me CRAZY with all the spinning so I had to resize back down to 6 and now I have a little muffin top but it’s not uncomfortable and I’m so much happier without spins and not afraid of losing my ring anymore which is a relief. Resizing down the road is annoying and costly if you have a moissanite (have to use a laser which not all jewelers have).

    I definitely wouldn’t resize more than once, you’re right it negatively affects the structural integrity. It sounds like maybe you should wait a while to see what size you ultimately want if you’re on a weight loss regime. Maybe get an inexpensive stand in ring or you could stack your rings which makes them fit tighter, simple thin bands or rings that complement, especially on the outside of the e-ring, so even if a ring slipped off it wouldn’t be the irreplaceable one!
