Thinking I am riding in stirrups that are a little on big size. Something I never really thought about till a few years ago.

4.5" and I wear a size 7. I dislike riding in 4 3/4" and really can't stand to ride in 5". With my smaller foot, I feel like the iron ends up tilting and doesn't hang balanced with the bigger irons. It makes a difference (to me anyway). :)

I ride in 4.25" I wear a size 8.5 but I have narrow feet and these little kid sized ones seem to work great!

question: is it any safer to ride with irons that are slightly bigger (though not so large your entire foot could go through)? ie, if you use bigger irons, is your boot less likely to get caught in the stirrup should you come off?

Yes.

You want a finger's width on either side of your boot at the widest point.

I wear a ladies' size 11B and prefer a 5" iron.

Normally 4.5." But the ones I have now are 4.25" because the only other option of that kind was 4.75 which I find feels too big. I'm shoe size 9.
