    Wink 7/8 - 1" is it a big stretch?

    Hey my ears are currently 7/8 and i'm thinking about going to 1inch
    I was wondering if this stretch would be too large causing my lobes to rip or blowout.

    How long have you been at 7/8?

    7/8 to 1" is a 3mm stretch. I would recommend taping up to make it more gradual.
    If blood is thicker than water then, you'll drown quicker than we intended.

    Dude, that's a 3mm jump, three sizes basically, so DON'T do that stretch all in one go or you WILL tear your lobe.

    You're best of finding some cheap in between size jewellery and following the timeline of around 3 months per stretch at each 1mm increment. I'm sure BAF will have some cheap jewellery at the in between sizes.

    As an alternative you could try taping, but I don't think you'd want to tape for 3mm worth of stretch.

    EDIT: Okay, so after a bit of searching, I think your best bet would be to tape about a millimetre up to 23mm and then grab something at 15/16. If you check in BAF, there's plenty of reasonably priced SF glass and SF steel at this size. There's organics listed too but obviously you want to avoid those.

    Then you could tape from 15/16 to about 24ish mm and then make the jump to 1" from there.

    Have fun buddy!

    I would personally wait until you can put the next size in easily. What's your stretching history like? how long have you been at 7/8"?

    Just go to a sex shop and grab some bondage tape it's amazing. Some Spencer's gifts stores carry it also. It's a pretty srs gap to try without tape, unless you've been at 7/8ths for a long time and have gigantic gaps above them.
