Comfort fit is a LOT more comfortable, although it matters less with how wide the band is. The wider it is, the more of a need for comfort fit. I’d recommend it, though, at least for your FH’s. Comfort fit can still be engraved. I have 2 1.5mm wide bands, and they’re flat and fine, but my husband’s ring is 5mm wide too and he has it comfort fit. Definitely better that way. 🙂

Comfort fit all the way  🙂  My FI actually insisted on it for his wedding band, he was very specific on what he wanted and actually designed my e-ring and wedding band so they would be the most comfortable to wear.

I have a flat fit which matches my e-ring and I can’t imagine something being more comfortable.  Mine is 2mm.  Personally, I think the difference would be so small, I’d go based on price!

@sablemuse:  Not yet, but I probably will.  They have good reviews.

I have a flat, DH has a comfort fit. I feel like mine is super comfortable, never bothers me at all. I’ve tried his on (haha) and maybe because his ring is too big for my finger (1 size or so) but I like my flat way better than his. Go to a store and try them on, you don’t have to buy 😉

I have only just started looking (one store) and pretty quickly determined that with my BIG E-Ring (10 mm) that I’ll be going with a fairly narrow W-Band. 

My biggest decision was what metal.  My E-Ring is 18K White Gold, but being 18K although it is really quite pure, it is also quite soft.  As I won’t be taking my W-Band off EVER, I’m leaning towards something more durable… so either Platinum or 10K White Gold.

Went and tried on rings, fell in love with a 2.5 mm comfort fit domed one (originally thought I wanted 1.5 or 2 mm… but they were just too small and lost next to my 10 mm E-Ring).  Jeweller quoted me $ 250 for a 10K White Gold one, or $ 1250 for a Platinum one.  Now seriously leaning towards White Gold due to pricing.  However, due to the height that my E-Ring has (thick band) I will continue to search… need something that isn’t lost sitting beside my E-Ring.  If I don’t find what I want (have 4-1/2 months still to search) guess we will consider Custom Made.

Hope this helps (somewhat),
