@Metalkisses:  I would think a whole size up would be huge. I know even a half size on me spins/falls off. I think it depends on your finger, and how many bands (of what thickness) you want to stack. 

In my situation – My engagement ring is a size 6.25 (my true size), my wedding band is a size 6.5. Both are 2.3 mm bands. I sized up the wedding band to accomadate the different thicknesses as they stand off my finger. I have a 4 mm eternity band that is a size 6.75 that I will wear with either the wedding band and the engagement ring, or just the wedding band. it is a little loose even then, but I wanted the option to wear that band on the middle finger of my right hand. When I stack my other 3 mm eternity band (size 6.5) with the 4mm and my wedding band, they are all comfortable. 

see, it’s just very unique to the situation and the bands in question. If your finger is very chubby or prone to swelling it will make a huge difference as well.

@Metalkisses:  My e-ring is my true size and my wedding band is1/4 size bigger. It is true — when you stack more than one ring in your true size they feel tight :-/

@Metalkisses:  My ering is a half size larger, and my bands are a full size larger. I decided to get my bands big becasue they are eternity bands and cannot be sized. Rings do seem to fit a little more snug when they are stacked

My friend has three rings…a band then her e-ring then another band. The first two rings are a size 5, the third ring (highest up on her finger) is a size 5.5, she said it was too tight when all the rings were the same size.

@MlleDarcy:  The ring I wear closest to my palm is a 7.75. The next one is an 8, and then an 8.25. If I wear the larger one closer to my hand (by taking off the first band) it spins just a -tiny- bit, but not all the way around.

I sized all mine up one size to fit and it works perfectly

Currently I wear three rings, but all are narrow and all are sized 7. When it is very hot, I sometimes take them off one at a time instead of siding all three off as one ring. When I order different bands, I will be ordering 1/2 size up, mainly to stack and also because my joints are slightly arthritic.

The idea of a “true ring size” is misleading, though, since it depends entirely on the width of the band. So a person’s size in a 2 mm band would be different from the same person’s size in a 4 mm band, which might be different still if it were a very wide 6 mm or wider ring. So a person with a 4 mm band might say their “true” size is a 6, but if they wore a very narrow ring, their “true” size might be a 5.5. In other words, there is no such thing as a “true size” in rings, only what fits under what circumstances.
