Aviator sunglasses are a timeless sunglasses style that work well with every shaped face there is. But there is one major factor that will make or break your look, and that’s fit. Just like you wouldn’t wear a pair of shoes that’s a size too big, you don’t want to be caught wearing aviators half the size of your head. Our sizing guide is a quick and easy way to make sure that you get a pair of sunglasses that look right on your face. But here are a few other indicators of good fitting sunglasses:
- The bridge should sit comfortably, not too short or too wide. If it is too short, the bridge will sit too high on the face; if it is too wide, it will droop too low down the bridge of the nose.
- Your eyelashes should not be able to touch the lenses. Your aviators are too small if they sit that close to your eyes!
- They should not be too snug on your nose. You should not have indents on your nose just from wearing your sunglasses for a few hours.
- Aviators typically cover the eyebrows. This makes sense for sunglasses that were designed to cover the entire eye socket. If your aviators don’t at least partially cover your eyebrows they are probably too small.
