Question - (29 February 2012) 4 Answers - (Newest, 1 March 2012)
A female United Kingdom age 26-29, anonymous writes:

Just a quick little question thing. I tried on my mates ring because he told me it was too big for his middle finger which is the one it was meant for so he wore it on his thumb and he told me to put it on to prove a point that it was just too big in general but it fit my finger and kind of got stuck for a few seconds and it was REALLY embarrassing because I dont have fat fingers but my hands were really warm and his were freezing does that have any small affect on hand size? I really should check this for punctuation but i dont have time so sorry for those of you who are out of breath right now. thank you.

If it's cold, yes your fingers tend to shrink down. If it's warm, your fingers will expand a bit.

Deagan agony auntAn odd but amusing question.

In general, you're body swells up if you have a high intake of sodium... it can cause your fingers to swell up and feel fat.

Your body temp can have a certain affect, but it's very limited. When you are warm, your skin "expands" whereas when it's cold it "shrivels" up.

Guys would totally understand what I mean because a particular body part they possess does that depending on the weather.

I don't know, but when I'm in cool place with Air Conditioner on and just leave for the street my fingers become swollen, they get back to normal once I get accostumed to the temperature.
