Have they made shoe sizes bigger or...

Have my feet actually flattened out in the last few months? I bought shoes in July,and when I went today to get new ones,I'm apparently a whole size bigger now! i thought it was the brand,but nope. I tried on 5 different kinds. I went from a 8 1/2 to a 9 1/2!

  • Well, I've gone from a 71/2 to an 8 ... I think it's because I'm less willing to tolerate uncomfortable shoes!

  • Retaining water maybe?

  • I think retaining water would make them tight,not too short. I 1st try them on untied to check the length,then tie them up.

  • Are you standing for long periods of time? that could cause more flattening of you feet.

  • I gained a whole shoe size when I was pregnant, and it never went back. My feet got a tad bit wider at the toes, but they got longer too.
