I got sized at one jeweler as a size 5 (but I didn’t think to ask for comfort fit ring sizing). I went to another jeweler who sized me as a 4.5 using comfort fit bands. When I asked the customer service person from the website where I’m ordering my ring, they said the sizing would hardly be different at all for the 2mm comfort fit ring vs. the standard size, so they recommended I just order my standard size. I had planned to order a 5.25 since my fingers swell a lot from working out and during the hot weather. I know resizing later is an option, but I would love to avoid the expense and time away from my new ring!
What is your experience with comfort fit sizing?

It’s not uncommon for your ring size to fluctuate over the course of a day… and a month with the menstrual cycle. Also, you will wear a different t size depending on the width of the band… larger size the wider the band gets.

A wider band will always fit “smaller” or feel tighter than a narrow band, and multiple rings – like an engagement ring and a wedding band – will always fit tighter than single rings. Additionally, your ring size is generally larger first thing in the morning or in warm weather or if you have been actively using your hands than it is in the early evening, in cooler weather or when your hands have been idle.
I would try on rings that would be the width of my ER and wedding band together to make sure both will fit comfortably together. Many people need to increase the size of their ER when they pair it with a wedding band. And if I were sized a half size larger in one place and a half size smaller in another, I’d go with the larger size.

Thank you, both! Excellent points. I’ve definitely noticed bigger finger size in the morning and throughout the day. I went with your advice and ordered the bigger size.
