When buying sunglasses for small faces, you are limited to certain criteria by default. The first thing to look for is the frame size and fit. Although oversized sunglasses are now in trend, purchasing a bigger frame size than what you need could potentially lead to some inconveniences. If the sunglasses are stylish but uncomfortable and don't stay in place, where’s the joy in having them fall off your face every time you move?
Size and fit can be the conclusive issue while purchasing sunglasses. If the frame has modifiable nose pads, then they can be adjusted to keep the sunglasses from slipping off. Other than that, make sure to look out for this potential issue. On the other hand, you can also adjust sunglasses for small faces by tightening them around the temples; However, it’s only a matter of time before they tend to loosen up again.
In order to avoid these potential size and fit issues, we recommend choosing a pair of frames that have an optimal width for your face when shopping for sunglasses for small faces. How can you do that you ask? Perform a quick mirror test. It simply requires wearing the sunglasses in front of a mirror and seeing where your eyes are located through the lenses. For the best sunglasses fit, your eyes should be centered behind the lenses of the frame. You can also look at the size indicated inside the sunglasses temples.
