Finding a style may be the first step in finding a good sunglass. You want one that is flattering to your face shape, hair and skin tone. But you also want a good fit. So how do you determine that? Conventional wisdom says there are three things to consider when buying sunglasses. Lens width, bridge width and temple length. The width refers to the horizontal length of the lens. Ideally, the glasses should be no wider than your face width. Bridge width says that the glasses should sit comfortably on the bridge of your nose, without slipping when you bend down or move around.
The pupil of your eye should line up with the center of the glasses and they should sit no higher than the eyebrows, which gives you an optimum sight line. If there is pinching of the nose, either the glass isn’t a good fit, or the inner nose pads need to be adjusted a bit to suit your face better. Finally, there’s the length of the temple, or stems of the glasses. These should comfortably wrap around your ears, without being too tight, and hold the glasses in place. If they slip when you bend down or move around, they may not be the right length.
Take a look at various styles and see what fits best and feels most comfortable. Glare-Guard offers two mens and one woman’s frame styles that offer different looks and fit for different people.
