2 overgrips.
also I believe there's heatwraps or something that also do that.
beware of removing bevels (if you care that much) with wrapping multiple grips.

I also have that issue, so many used racquets are 3/8 but I'm really about a 1/2 or 5/8

You can use a heat shrink wrap:

Read the above. Also, go to youtube.com/yulitle and watch the video on increasing grip size with a wrap. Note: with any of the above methods, bevels will become less prominent.

Also, but less easy to obtain, and more work, and only available for particular racquets, particularly Head, are replacement pallets that make up the grip (under the replacement grip) with one of the necessary size.

Your concern isn't, "How many?" Your concern is how does it feel and fit in your hand and any loss of bevels.
