Frame width is the horizontal diameter of the full frame width, and it’s the primary way we determine fit. Choose a width that corresponds with your own face width, e.g., pick a narrow frame if you have a narrow face (and so on).
The horizontal diameter of one lens
The width of the bridge section
The length of the entire temple arm, from the front of the frame to the tip.
Inside hinge to hinge width
This is the horizontal diameter across the inside hinges.
This is the height of the frames from top to bottom, you might find some frames being more of a micro and narrow fit.
HOW TO FIND THE RIGHT FIT FOR YOU
- Do you have a pair of sunglasses handy that you like the fit of? Measure the width of them. This can be the inside hinge to hinge width or the outside width. This will be an indicator of the right fit for your face shape. You can also measure the height of the sunglasses to compare. Don't have a pair of sunglasses handy? No worries, use our guide below for reference.
What sunglasses fit is best for your face shape?
Your ideal sunglasses are out there. To narrow it down - they’re right here! Here's our guide to finding your best fit. One size does NOT fit all, so find the size that fits you best.
Low nose bridge?
Opt for adjustable nose pads and a narrower fit. Avoid wrapped frames and go for shorter frame height. Go for the Cupid, Coco, Wolf or Venus frame.
High nose bridge?
Most sunglasses will fit you well. Explore regular fit styles and designs that match your style.
How to find your face shape:
Snap a Pic: For this exercise, you can either use a photo you have of yourself on hand or snap a selfie with your hair pulled back. Use the draw tool on the photos app to outline the shape of your face. Identify any key features: Look at the proportions of your traced face to determine the shape. Pay attention to your forehead, cheekbones, jawline, and chin. Take note of any distinctive features you have, such as a prominent chin or high cheekbones.
Opt for sunglasses with a regular or wider fit to ensure a comfortable and secure fit on your face.
A shorter frame height may be ideal.
If you have a square face shape with a strong jawline and equal width and length, go for round or oval-shaped sunglasses. E.g Zendaya, Harry Styles
If you have a round face shape with full cheeks and a curved jawline, opt for angular or square-shaped sunglasses.E.g Billie Eilish, Cardi B
If you have a triangle face shape with a narrower forehead that gently widens through your cheekbones and jawline. You have a prominent jawline and delicately tapering chin. E.g Scarlett Johansen
If you have a heart-shaped face with a wider forehead and a narrower chin, try sunglasses with wider frames.E.g Ariana Grande, Cole Sprouse
Best fit for you
Triangle Face Shape:
Opt for frames that balance your broader jawline by drawing attention upward. Rounded or cat-eye styles can work wonders, softening angles and accentuating your inherent charm.
Square Face Shape:
Round or oval-shaped frames can help soften the angular features of a square face. These frames add curves and contrast to the face, creating a more balanced appearance.
Avoid Angular Frames: To avoid accentuating the squareness of the face, stay away from frames with sharp angles and straight lines, such as rectangular or square frames.
Heart Face Shape:
Cat eye frames and round sunglasses work well for heart face shapes. They complement the natural features of a heart face shape and draw attention upward and outward, balancing the wider forehead. Round frames can soften the angles of the forehead and jawline, creating a harmonious look.
