    I wish to quote the answer given by a family relationship expert as follows:

    If you have more than three sisters, you might refer to them as "my eldest sister", "my second-eldest sister", my youngest sister", "my second-youngest sister", etc. If you have exactly three sisters, you might say "middle sister" for the one between the oldest and youngest of your sisters. However, none of these include information about whether your sisters are older or younger than you are.

    If you talk about "my big brother", then you are referring to a brother who is older than you are. Without further context, it suggests that you have only one brother who is older than you are.

    If you talk about "my little sister", then you are referring to a younger sister. Without further context, it suggests that you have only one sister who is younger than you are.

    Reference: http://www.english-test.net/forum/ftopic52775.html

    In English, we seldom mention seniority for siblings, but if you insist on it my suggestion to your question would be

    My eldest sister;

    My second-eldest sister; and

    My third-eldest sister

    There might be a need to tell exactly who is older than the other, in particular when compiling a family tree.
