Im trying to play

e9
B12

with a full bend on the B string, im fretting the e with my index and bending with my middle and ring fingers. However because I have really small hands and im bending up with my wrist I keep muting the e with my hand at the top of the bend. Is there a better way of doing this without resorting to bending with my fingers because that really throws off my technique for the rest of the bends in the run?

if you're using your left hand thumb as a pivot, it doesn't really matter how small your hands are...otherwise your technique could hinder your playing here

As you should, which part of your hand is muting the string?

Try straightening out your fingers a bit more to put distance between that part of your hand and the bottom string. You don't necessarily have to use you fingers to bend, but rather use the same technique but with less curled fingers.
