How much do I need to size up my wedding band?

They resized mine equally and went up  1/4 size.  The thought is the set together will feel tighter due to the width.  Don’t go up too much to where they fall off easily!

Mine are the same size, total width being around 6mm.

Friend of mine has two bands + ering, her first band and e-ring are both the same size, the band on top of the e-ring is 0.5 size bigger. Total width about 9-10 mm.

I wear a size 7 and all three of my rings (e-ring and two wedding bands) are size 7.

Mine are the same size, but if anything, I’d think the e-ring would be bigger than the w-band since it sits higher up on your finger where it’s a bit meatier.

My E-ring is a size 4, and the jeweler making my wedding band recommended a 4.25.  He said that little bit of space will make a difference so I went with it.  It’s not finished yet, so I can’t tell you how they feel together.

That should be the right amount.  It does make just that little bit of difference in comfort.

My rings are both a size 5. I asked if I should go up in size for my wedding band, but the jeweler said the size 5 is perfect for me. I can actually wear as small as a 4.5, so I think my e-ring is actually a little big, but my knuckle keeps it on. I won’t get to wear my wedding band full time for awhile, but from my limited time wearing it around the house (lol) they seem to fit well.

Mine are both the same size and weren’t sized up.  They’re both pretty skinny though, like 1.5 mm each, so if it’s the width that makes them tighter, maybe that’s less applicable for me?

@bnamrs4evr:  +1! Sized up my wedding band 1/4 of a size because it’s fat (4 mm)!

If they’re thin bands you’ll probably be ok with the same size.

my bands were 2mm each, and I went up 1/2 size for comfort and to get rid of the muffin top.  (I could have just gone 1/4 size, but I wanted my rings to be fairly loose.)
