Are my lobes too thin?

Hi. I'm new here, the name's Libbee :)

I'm currently at 5/8 inch and my lobes have been looking a little thin lately. I massage them every day with vitamin E oil and leave the jewelry out for at least 2 hours every day. I think the lobes are getting a little thicker since I started doing that, but I don't know if they're thick enough. I'd like to start wearing my new stone jewelry, but I'm afraid that the weight of it will thin my lobes out even more. Do I need to downsize (which is a last resort for me, as I only got to this size about 3 weeks ago and really would like to stay here for a while) or are my lobes okay?
Here are a couple pictures, with and without jewelry in:

I'd like to mention that there are no thin spots, so I know I'm not in danger of tearing. But I'd eventually like to go to 3/4 inch (my goal size), though for now I'd like to stay at 5/8 for a while. I just want to be sure my lobes won't thin out even more, and that I can wear stone or other heavy plugs without worrying about further thinning. Thanks.

Your lobes look great! They look very healthy, I'm sure you care for them quite well!
They aren't too thin, stretch as you like! But if you notice them getting thinner, stop immediately.
Happy stretching!
