hmmmmmmm
My ears are super thick and quite happy, i'm curious if anyone ever stretched to 1 1/4" as thats the size i need in order to keep my 1" collection and wear them through silicone eyelets.

how do you convince yourself to stay at the size your at? i'm ridiculously inveted in my size but i keep seeing pictures at 1 1/4 and just drool at how perfect the size is.

maybe just going up to 1 1/8" and alternating back and forth between that and 1" would that work do you think?

i'm interested in input from people who are really invested in their size but realy secretly want to go a bit larger. What did you wind up deciding? are you able to go up and down? i should mention i have plugs that are 27mm that i wear as well as 25mm so its NOT that big a change i just managed to really tighten and thicken my lobes by no wearing jewlwery a lot of the time to really tighten my super stretchy lobes.

since nobody i know IRL stretches their ears supportive ideas are appreciated!
  • I stay at my size because it's what looks good on me and I have nearly everything I want in my size. I legitimately have thick lobes and could probably go to 5/8" or larger, but I just prefer the way 1/2" looks on my ears. Bigger is not always better. I haven't seen good pics of your ears lately, but I don't recall your lobes being especially thick... do you have updated pics since you started thickening them by leaving the jewelry out? I'd be interested in seeing the improvement :)
  • Ditto on this. Also, keep in mind you have the rest of your life to stretch, but there's no guarantee your ears will shrink nicely back to 1" if you decide to downsize.
    • this is also totall true. Also most sizes stop at 1" and are ridiculosly expensive larger. i've found the "cheaters" way form me is to get custom wear with 1 1/4" front flares and then regular saddles and back flares with 0-rings which allows me the detail without going up. totally nom my lobes but i suspect it would to the same if i stretched up
      • Yeah, that's the thing about stretching up--if you don't have the tissue to do it, you will have to put in a lot of work massaging, downsizing, etc, and you STILL might not have the tissue to do it. Honestly, it's cheaper and more satisfying to get custom jewelry in your actual size (1" with good front flares that you like) than to screw around with stretching up with ears that might not be happy at that size.
  • i do! i'll try to get some pics up. they're really really thick. i put on kaos today and 1" looked positively tiny. I highly recommend thickening for everyone you don't have to necessary downsize i'm home alot due to medical reasons and while at home i don't bother wearing plugs so my ears really tightened up and thickened as well. i don't think i have any nude pics so i'll try to get some in my collection post. I'm waiting for my quetzalli pieces to arrive as then i'll have the full set and really be excited to post!
    • Are you already working on collection post pics while waiting for your more recent purchases to arrive? I'm eager to see all your jewelry and I know a lot of other people are as well - we've been waiting for a long time! :D
