"How big can I stretch my ears before it is irreversible?"
I had my 1 - 1/4” gauges go back down to about a 4 gauge-ish size. It maybe took about a year to shrink back down. When I stretched them back it only took about 3 months to get back to an inch.
I had 00 gauge ear and it shrunk back to almost where I could put regular earrings in. Now I've gauged back to a 0 gauge.
I stretched my ears to 1 inch and got all the way back down to a 6 gauge before deciding to restretch lol.
I was at 4 gauge ears years ago and let them shrink back, I couldn't wear normal earrings unless they had large earring backs on them and when I decided to stretch again I was able to put in 6 gauge plug with no pain or problems.
I was at 7/16” and I let them shrink down starting in early February. Now they’re probably about 10 gauge ears give or take some.
Mine went from 00 gauge ears back down to a very tight 14 gauge. I took them out because they were a bit crooked from having them pierced originally when I was a little kid. I repierced them properly and now my stretched ears are back up to 00 gauge and now I just size up whenever they get loose.
They never shrank enough to wear regular earrings from a size 0 gauge ear. So I just stretched my ears back out.
3/4" ears and couldn't get them to shrink past 9/16"
I was at 00 gauge ears for 4 years and they've shrunk enough to accommodate regular earrings without falling off. I don't know the exact size. It's been around a year or so since I took them out.
I was stretched up to 1 - 7/8" and they've only shrunk down to 3/4" at the smallest - keeping them out for years. I will definitely need cosmetic surgery for mine.
My stretched ears were at 1 & 1/2 inches, and while they didn't go back to "normal," I was pretty impressed that my ears went down to about a 0 gauge ear.
I was at 1 inch and my ears shrunk down to at least a 00 gauge. I decided to keep them smallish. lol
Yea, it took a LONG time but mine went back from 1/2 inch. To normal-ish earring size.
My stretched ears were at a 3/4 inch. Putting the plugs back in and out and cleaning them was too much when I was pregnant. So I left out the plugs and they went down to like 2 gauge. They are back at 3/4 inch now.
I stretched my ears up to 1/2" and when I took them out they shrunk back down to 2 gauge.
Mine were 00 gauge ears. I shrieked my stretched ears back to maybe like a 12 gauge in just a few weeks.
I went from 00 gauge ears back to normal. I had my 00 gauged plugs in for like 3 years
I went from 3/4" to 00 gauged ears, that's as small as they'll go. When I stretched I tore my lobes too many times.
I had 00 gauge ears and mine shrank back to "normal" gauge size.
Got my stretched ears up to an inch and a quarter. After 6 years of no earrings, my stretched ear went down to about half inch. When I started wearing jewelry again it was easy to go back up only took a few days for each size I stopped at 3/4" this time though lol
Yeah. I had 2 gauge ears and they shrank back to standard 16 gauge. I’m currently back up to 4 gauge.
I’ve gone from 7/16" stretched ears back down to "normal" twice.
