Are Silicone Rings True to Size?

Are Silicone Rings True to Size?

Learn the ins and outs of sizing silicone rings and get the perfect fit for your finger.

Shopping online is one of the greatest conveniences of our modern era. Let’s face it—it’s so much easier to search through hundreds of clothes, shoes and accessories when they’re available right at the tips of your fingers. And you can do it all from the comfort of your own home—what’s not to love?

But online shopping often comes with a risk—that dreaded question that we all ask ourselves before hitting the order button: “will it fit?” Not being able to try things on is a big concern for anyone buying something on the internet. You might have even not bought the perfect accessory just because you weren’t sure if it would fit right when it got to your house.

Silicone rings are no exception to this fear. How do you know that the size 6 online is the same size 6 as the one you’re currently wearing? Especially with a product you may not be familiar with—like a silicone ring. You might feel unsure when it comes to choosing a band size in this material, but there are a few principles to follow to ensure that you’ll always get a perfectly sized Enso ring.

Sizing silicone—just a little bit of a stretch.

When people think “what size silicone ring should I get?” they don’t generally consider the differences in material from silicone to metal. It often comes as a surprise for most first-time buyers that silicone bands require different sizing considerations than regular rings.

Silicone, while a strong material, is also highly flexible. This means that, over a few days of wear, your once perfectly fitted ring might seem a little loose. Because of this, it’s recommended that you go a step smaller than your regular size when getting a silicone ring. After a few days of wearing it, the material will relax and your new band will fit perfectly. Learn more about how to stretch a silicone ring to ensure you get the best fit.

In addition to considering the material, you should also consider your fingers. Your finger size can actually shift slightly depending on certain factors—and not just during a significant increase or decrease in weight. Ring sizes can fluctuate on an almost daily basis due to things like extreme temperatures, certain foods or sickness. Try putting on and taking off your regular rings to see if they fit normally before attempting to size your silicone ring.
