.wav to .mp3 conversion

I'm confused! I thought mp3 was a compressed form and so a converted wav to mp3 would be smaller.
I've tried Switch and Acez and both create a much bigger file. Is this normal? If not, can anyone suggest a good audio converter that also incluse mp3 to wav conversion?

Lots of ways to convert but I use WM Converter free at click here
It will also do video
Just converted a 49mb .wav to 4.5mb .mp3 YMMV

Ive been using Switch for years on and off,i just cannot see how you used Switch and created a bigger file when converting .Wav to MP3.

As Dippygirl says;

Ive just converted a 4.55MB mp3 file to .WAV and this comes out at 50.1MB

Reversed the conversion to MP3 and 4.55MB

This all done in Switch and very quick.

Just check your output format is selected to MP3
