Best paper size for 35mm

Hi guys,

I have done printing only a couple of times. I am a beginner. I am confused with the paper sizes. I only shoot 35mm and the paper I bought wasnt covering all 35mm frame. I bought ıilford 8x10 but I realize 8x11 is also not ideal so which paper gives 1.5 ratio like full frame. by math it looks like it should be 8x12 but this isnt a common paper size as far as I see in the stores. I saw in the "last prints" thread here people post photos with black line around suggesting the prints covering the full frame (?).
