    I ordered a 3mm band online… a risky maneuver I know, and even though my e-ring is also 3mm, the shape of the diamond sort of overshadows the band and makes it look tinyer. : /

    My band has a design on it (but i feel like you have to look reeeeeal close to see it) but no diamonds or anything so it’s def. plain compared to others…

    I wish I had gone w/ a 4mm, but i suppose it would depend on the shape of your ering and all.

    I do not have one but I wanted to say that I love the look of a wider band with a thinner ering. If you want to wear it on its own it also will look more “substantial”. I know wider bands are less popular these days but to me they are just so classic.

    My old band was 3mm (as was my ering) and I always found it not quite “enough” in width.

    My band is 4 mm with a 2 mm e-ring. I’m not super tall or long-fingered, and I think it works great!

    I don’t have a plain band; mine has channel set diamonds, but it is 4mm wide, and my e-ring is 2ish (maybe 2.5)mm wide.

    I had the same issue, and ordered a couple cheapie stainless steel rings off of ebay.  It really helps to try them on.  I was always sure that I’d want a 3mm or 2.5 mm wedding band to go with my ring, as I wanted something thicker, but upon trying them on, they just didn’t look right and I ended up going with 2mm.

    @morganjenkstamwood:  Hey, thank you!!! My “set” (they’re actually technically mis-matched) is incredibly plain compared to what most women go for these days. But I’m clumsy and would never trust myself with losing stones etc. I also wanted a wedding band I could wear totally on its own. The wider bands are better at that. And I just saw your rings. Absolutely gorgeous!!! Our wedding colors were red and white. I absolutely adore rubies!

    My wedding band is 4mm, but I don’t have it yet (it’s in transit now though, yay!!).  For me it’s too thick to wear with my engagement ring because I have ridiculously short fingers and it’s SO different from my engagement ring I don’t think they’ll look right together.  Here’s a pic of my hand with my engagement ring with a 3mm band and the stock photo of my actual band on a model’s hand (not technically plain, but an AWESOME deal on amazon.com hehe).  If you have longer fingers than me (which most children do, so you probably do too LOL), I think 4mm is a perfect size for a band.  Thick enough to look substantial but thin enough not to overpower your hand.

    @JustLove25:  Just a thought, if you want to try on different sizes to wear around the house to get a ‘feel’, Tanga.com has some 4mm tungsten or titanium bands for like $10 with shipping.  Might help you get more of a feel for it than trying one on in a store where they might not fit right and you can’t really wear it for too long.  Post pics when you decide!!

    when I’m not wearing my “fancy” set, I have a plain 2mm comfort fit band. it’s very comfortable, and I really love how it looks– it has kind of an understated elegance. kind of a “nothing to prove” look to it.
