For those that use acrylic discs for applying buttercream, do you prefer discs .25" bigger than the cake or .50" bigger than the cake? 

Thank you so much for your input!!

How thick do you want your icing to be?

I think that would help you decide the extra width...

I don't necessarily want the extra thick icing that would come with the .50" bigger discs. I'm wondering if there is an advantage to having an extra thick layer of icing or a drawback to having a thinner layer during the icing process. I'm really just wanting to get the best looking end product with the fewest problems along the way.
