Choose Your Sunglasses

Choose the perfect sunglasses for your face. For you choosing for the best fit, we are quoting here some tips, hints and tricks, to help you figure out what style will most compliment your shape and size. Sunglasses tend to be larger than eyeglasses, but the measurements are calculated the same way, (this is just in case you ended up reading this, and you’re looking then for eyeglasses).

Face size

When measuring your face, you’ll need to line up a ruler (on the millimeter side) with the location of your temple, (which is the side of the head behind your eyes). The ruler should stay in front of your face, in the space from one temple to the other. Then, please measure straight across, and the measurement you get is the best frame size for your face.


  Looking into your mirror, hold a ruler so it is lined up with each temple. Then measure the distance between your left and right edges (temple area): this is your face size.



Face measure

Use the table below to compare your measurement to a frame size and style.

below 115mm / 4.5” 48mm Small
115mm / 4.5” 49mm Small
127mm / 5” 52mm Small
130mm / 5.125” 54mm Medium
135mm / 5.25” 55mm Medium
140mm / 5.5” 57mm Medium
146mm / 5.75” 58mm Large
152mm / 6” 61mm Large

Estimate Your Match Up

If you know the total width of the sunglasses (including lenses, end pieces and bridge), you can in general, subtract 6 mm from the total and compare it to the width you calculated earlier. If it’s within 2 mm of your face size, the sunglasses should be of a good fit to you.

If you don’t have the total width of the sunglasses but still you have at hand the glasses to measure, then add up the lenses’ width (of the one multiplied by two), to the size of the bridge (distance between the lenses). If that number is within 2 mm of your face size, you should be good to go with those glasses as well.

Face shape and frame type

Actually, every face is unique! For eyeglass fitting, face shapes are categorized as Round, Square, Oblong, Heart-shaped, Diamond, or Oval. Our guide can assist you in choosing a frame type that best suits your face shape.

To determine the shape of your face, brush your hair back, away from your face, and look straight ahead into a mirror. Take a close look at the width of your forehead, cheeks and chin. Now look at the outline of your face, from your hairline and down through to your cheekbones and jawline.

Read next after this table, some tips on the recognition of the face shape and the categorization of frame types. Then use the table below to choose the sunglasses that suit best to you.
