I would recommend going bigger. remember that when you start wearing both bands at the same time, together they are going to feel tighter.  I comfortably wore my size 6 1/2 e-ring for two years and had no issues.  once I added my wedding band to it, together they felt too tight. it was subtle — I didn’t notice at first, but it started to bug me after a few months. 

besides, the whole purpose of an eternity band is so you don’t have to worry about it spinning, right?

I wouldn’t go the 3/4 eternity route. That’s what I have and I hate it daily. I plan on getting a full eternity band for my first anniversary.The #1 reason I hate it is because it spins! It spins and spins and spins. It’s always looking ugly when I look down at it and my jeweler refuses to make it tighter. I’m just really not a fan.

I got a half eternity, its more comfortable not having the diamonds on the inside of my hand and this way I can always get it sized up or down. Mine doesnt spin. if it fits right it should really spin, plus the back of mine is contoured for a better fit dont know how to explain ti better but it dips in slightly on inside so it never spins. I got my ring from zales

Mine are the same size, but my e-ring feels good when it’s by it’s self, but my band by itself feels too big. They are perfect together. I’ve been thinking about a plain band to stack, if there comes a time that I don’t want to wear my e-ring.

Contrary to popular belief, it is possible to size some eternity bands although I am not sure by how much. Of course it would cost more than a regular resizing and you would have to find a jeweler to do it.

What the jeweler would do to size down would be cut out a diamond or diamonds and reattach it. Or to size it up they would cut it, add metal and another diamond.

@PinkMagnolia:  I also have a 3/4 eternity, and I had the same problem. I decided to solder mine to my e-ring and that has made a huge difference. I don’t mind because I don’t like wearing the wedding band alone anyway.

I have two 3/4 eternity bands and they are slightly larger (0.25) than my e-ring. For my situation the thicker the set the higher the likelihood that it will need to be larger.

If for some reason you find it moving quite a bit and too large you can get those sizing balls recommended all over WB. I am considering them myself.

it’s hard to explain, but a well known issue (treejewel mentioned it in her post above). try on a bunch of stacking rings and you will see how the more you add, the tighter it feels.  same goes with wide bands– the wider one band is, the bigger you need to go. 

I normally wear a size 6.5 or 7 ring, but I have a coctail ring that has a super wide band — about 1/2″. I had to get it in a size 8 in order for it to be comfortable.
