Question Which size hair bands should I get?

Sorry about posting this, I know there's like 100 threads about hair bands for the topknot. I looked & looked & searched, but I can't find the one I'm looking for. Someone said which size they used & I can't find that thread

Should I get the 3/8" or the 5/16" ? I'm leaning to the 3/8" inch

We do 3/8th. The other one didn't work out for us. My fingers are not nimble enough.

I'm leaning toward the smaller size because I don't want to have to wrap it around a bunch of times.

I posted the wrong sizes in my original post! I meant I was debating between 1/4" & 5/16" I know that's barely a difference between those two, or should I get a 3/8"? That's what I meant to ask. My brain has been set to "deep fried" lately! Can't wait to get off pain meds so that I can think clearly again.

ETA:
I still don't think I asked the right sizes.

Just ignore that part & just tell me which sizes y'all prefer to use since I can't seem to get my sizes straight. Ugh. Sorry.

I use the 1/4" orthodontic bands when I make bows, so that it doesn't have to be wrapped. They are too difficult to manage for anything other than slipping on a bow. To tie the top know I use the soft very flexible 3/8" ones from ShowOff Products.

We use clear latex free ones... I got them online, i think there's only one size.

But when we are having lazy days at home I just use a baby scrunchie (the soft cotton bands).... But Grace leaves her ties in....

We lucked out that around the time we brought Sophie home my BF got his braces off and the ortho bands he had were PERFECT! I think they're 3/8 but I know they are the "sea lion" size.

I'm currently using the ones from Topline pet. I think they're either the "snag free" ones at the bottom, or the 3/8" latex free, but in red and black. I like that they're very thin and stretchy, so I can stretch them out to get my fingers in easily, and as soon as I let go it goes back to original size so stays on securely.

I don't use bands at all---just scrunchies--on both Lisi & Kitzi---the really tiny ones, but they are hard to find. I found a pack of pink ones in the UK. I still have to do about 4-5 loops on Lisi's piggys.

I use the same ones

I get them here in the US at Walmart... in the little girls' hair section.

I checked every Wallmart anywhere near me in Oct./Nov. and found some small ones but not as small as the ones I used to be able to buy. Both are made by Goody but the old ones I have are much better!
