    Feet expand in the morning so you need bigger shoes

    If you go to buy shoes for yourself in the morning you will probably buy a bigger pair of shoes or bigger number shoes than you will be wearing at that moment. It is said that your feet expand in the morning and shrink in the evening.

    Please check.

    Perhaps:

    If you go to buy shoes for yourself in the morning you will probably buy bigger shoes than you would otherwise. It is said that feet expand at night while you're in bed and shrink during the day.

    Re: Feet expand in the morning so you need bigger shoes

    I'm surprised about that claim. I expect feet to swell over the course of the day when we're standing up a lot and gravity causes more blood/fluid to flow down into the feet. Overnight, when we're horizontal (some people sleep with their feet slightly elevated), any swelling usually goes down.

    I think you're right. Ems. Feet expand at night and shrink during the day.
