The width of your frames is like the width of your shoes—this isn’t a fashion choice, it’s a matter of getting the correct fit. Here are a couple of tips to remember:
First, measure the total width of the frame, even if it’s not printed on the arm of your glasses. You can measure it easily by measuring the distance from each hinge on both sides with a ruler. Generally the value is from 120mm to 150mm.
Secondly, the bridge should also sit comfortably on the bridge of your nose. We recommend frames sitting lower on the bridge, because the frames are crafted for those with low bridges fit. An adjusted nose pad can ensure the frame to sit suitably without tension and slipping.
Thirdly, if you’re not sure these smaller frames are right for you, use our online Tryon Tool. Upload a picture of yourself, and you’ll be able to see how they look on you.
Lastly, there’s another simple method, buy a new pair of frames that’s a similar size to your previous one.
Oversized glasses are different to wide glasses. Wide glasses have more emphasis on the horizontal width of the frame on your face; oversized glasses emphasize a style. The oversized glasses can be matched with your look. Recently, the trend has been ubiquitous with fashion. Larger glasses are different from wide glasses, not only in the horizontal distance of the glasses, but also in the frame, Nose Bridge and temples.
