I am beginning to look for my wedding band, and I am debating what ring size to get.
My e-ring is a size 5, and it fits snug (but comfortable). It rarely spins, and it has never felt like it will come off on its own.
I know when you get two rings it feels a bit tighter because of the added width.
I’m thinking I might want my wedding band to be a bigger size just in case it’s too tight with two rings. I plan to wear my wedding band on the inside, so it will be secured by the e-ring.
But how much bigger to get the wedding band? Up a quarter size? A half?
Are your rings the same size or different? How did the e-ring fit on its own?

My e-ring is a 3.75, and my wedding band is a 4. I wear the wedding band on the inside.
I thought it was weird to have the wedding band be 1/4 size bigger. Someone recommended it to me and I decided to try it. I’m so glad I did! The fit feels perfect!

Mine are exactly the same size and fit perfectly.

I’m ordering my wedding band, an eternity band, in the same size as my e-ring, 5.25, and overall I think my e-ring is perfect but it spins a bit so I’m getting sizing beads put in.

I ordered both of mine on the big side because I knew they’d be more snug when worn together. When we got married, they fit perfectly and I thought I was oh-so-clever for sizing up to begin with. Then I lost weight this year and both rings are loose. So much for that.

I ordered my band in a size 8.5 and my ering in a size 9. I got a size smaller in the band so that my ering could sit on top of the band. I’ve also been losing weight and my ering started to spin by the time the wedding came around.

@maggielou52: same for me, except 4.75 and 5 🙂

Have you tried on bands at the jeweler?
Mine are supposed to be the same size but they feel slightly different. I think it’s because they’re made out of different materials. My ering is white gold and my band is titanium. They’re both quite thin (2mm) so it doesn’t bother me when they’re stacked.

Mine are the same size and fit great. I would try on rings with your e ring and see what works.

each of my bands is a different size.. bottom band is a 7 (what i measure), ering is 7.5 – had to size up due to wide band width, and my top band is 7.25!

Mine are teh same size, but both are fairly narrow bands. When I wear both with an anniversary ring, they sometimes feel a bit more snug, but I then just remove them one at a time instead of trying to treat the three like one ring and move them all together.

Wedding band is 0.25 bigger!
My Ering is 5.5 and my wedding band is 5.75.
I want to be able to wear my wedding band when I gain weight with pregnancy or age or whatever. I just want to have some comfy wiggle room if i need it. The ering keeps it from sliding off.

My e-ring is bigger…. 6.5. When we got it it was the perfect size, but then I lost around 10 lbs during the year and a half we were engaged, and now it’s big. It’s tough though, because when my fingers swell (humidity, salt, etc) it feels fine. Other times I feel like it might actually fall off.
We got my wedding band in a 6, which I think is a good size (esp with wearing both rings together)…. I think I will probably have the e-ring sized down to a 6 as well. That said, 6 is not snug on me. If my rings were tighter I would definitely be worried about both together being too snug. I would think 1/4 size would do it based on your question?
