  • If you actually want to know.....

    Your fingers/hands and toes/feet are the two extremities that will swell when you are bloated. The good Lord designed us to have a little "stretchy-room" so the excess water has a place to go when needed. So, when these guys (fingers and toes) are exposed to external water pressure (from bathing or swimming), the reverse happens. Compare it mentally to a balloon that's been inflated, then deflated. Imagine that deflated balloon under water ~ it'd be all wrinkly, just like our water-logged fingers and toes get.
