    @MrsSnowMountain:  Comfort fit means that simply there is more gold added to the inside edges of the ring to make it more rounded. Since more gold is used these bands are usually more costly than non-comfort fit bands. The reason comfort fit bands are more comfortable is since there is extra gold and the edges are more rounded you don’t really feel the ring. I’ve noticed that when wearing comfort fit and that is why a lot of people feel comfort fit bands run in a slightly larger size. The ring is not bulkier it’s just the edges that are more rounded therefore creating that glide-like fit.

    Comfort fit is not necessarlity better, it’s just personal preference. I prefer non-comfort fit because since my engagement ring is non-comfort fit I want the band to match and comfort fit just looks too thick next to it.

    @MrsSnowMountain:  It does sit up higher off the finger because more gold is used on the underside to make it rounded and more comfortable! Trying both of them on will definitely help you understand it better. It’s kind of hard to explain.

    Maybe these will help:

    Not sure if you can see the difference because the comfort fit is a low dome style where the regular fit is regular dome. This makes a difference also.

    i have a comfort fit band and i love it.  my band from my previous marriage was not.  i can really tell the difference.

    if you are unsure, go to the jewellery store and try on one of each for comparison.

    I don’t know if I can explain it much better (not having tried on a comfort fit).  However, I was there when my Darling Husband tried them on.  The “comfort” part is more in the edges, then the bottom of the ring where there is the added metal.  The comfort is rounded to slide on/off the finger easier, ie getting it over your knuckle

    ETA I didn’t vote, because i personally haven’t tried them

    Hubby went for a comfort fit band because he can’t feel it as much as a normal band (I think it’s the fact that it has rounded edges versus flat, so less metal is rubbing).

    My wedding band isn’t comfort fit and I don’t find it uncomfortable at all (don’t feel it) BUT I am also the type of girl that always wears jewelry, so few pieces bother me.

    For someone not used to wearing jewelry, I think comfort fit is better. But if you are used to wearing rings it’s not as noticeable.

    I’ve tried both on, and even at the 2mm width, I prefer comfort fit.  It just feels nicer.  For a thicker band, I wouldn’t consider anything else.

    Comfort fit rings are rounded on the inside, which allows for more space, thus making the rings more comfortable to wear.  Less friction, less discomfort.
