This will only help if you feel like you are digging into the ice too much and this causes you to fall. It will also change how skating feels on the rest of the ice.
This. I went from a 3/8 to a 3/4 and it made a BIG difference in learning to stop. It gives you more forgiveness on stopping until you get more adept at using your edges.
