Default Do you like 5/8" or 7/8" better for 3" bows

I have a custom order and she is going to be using the bows in pairs to hold up her dd's hair on the side (so not pigtails). What size ribbon do you think looks best like that? They are 3" bows... Thanks!

I like them both. I use 7/8 more but that's just because it's easier to find if I have to get it at a store.

I would use the 5/8~the only problem that I found is the selection in 5/8 is not as good as 7/8!!

I agree... I would say 5/8 but it is not as good selection of ribbon as 7/8. i think either will work

thanks! I am going with 5/8. She picked solids so that makes it easier to get.

I am one of the odds ones out...I prefer the 7/8 for 3" bows and the 5/8 for 2" bows. They seem to be fluffier.

I like the 7/8" but it is up to you since I do not know how thick the girl's hair is.
