@Jane77677:  I can’t help from experience…but I know I’ve seen a couple posts on here where bees had the same issue when they had multiple bands…so I don’t think its just you!

@Jane77677:  I have a sleeve wedding band (which is two bands attached at the base, so that the e-ring slips in between).  I am not married yet and have not worn them for long periods of time, but I already know I am going to have to have both my e-ring and the sleeve sized up at least half a size.  It makes bending my fingers uncomfortable at its current size and I swell sometimes which causes finger muffin top.  I will have this done right before the wedding, so that my e-ring is not loose leading up to the wedding this fall.

It doesn’t look tight in this picture, but that is because it is extremely cold here at the moment.  At warmer temperatures, the rings definitely feel tight.

@Jane77677:  I went up a quarter size when I stacked, because it did make my fingers swell after a few days at the regular size 6….but after that, it was all good!

I went up a quarter size when I had my two bands soldered to my ering. The flesh just doesn’t have anywhere to squish around the band because the band is now 5/8 in thick. It helped tremendously with comfort to size ever so slightly up.

@Jane77677:  The thicker your set the tighter it will be unfortunately. I had to have my wedding bands sized up to a 6.5 to fit all three onto my finger. When you solder them it will become even tighter (which is one reason why I haven’t done so). Colder weather helps but when it gets warm or I am puffy they can get tight still.
