Looking for info, size of wire wrap needed?

I want to order some self wrapping braided sleeving for the bed, and hotend cables (Bright Orange of course lol), but am not sure what size to get.

Should I get 1/4", 3/8", or 1/2" (All inside diameter before opening)?

Please help me pick!!!

My gut is that 1/4" should be fine as that would open/stretch to like 1/2-3/4"" or so I would imagine.

I used 3/8” on the extruder and power supply cables, then 1/4” on the printbed and motors.

I used the 1/4 and 1/2, but the 1/2 has plenty of room so the 3/8 is probably better. Mine looks fine though.
