When we buy a pair of sunglasses, the biggest question we ask ourselves is this: “do they fit right?” After all, you don’t want your sunglasses to overwhelm your face, and you also don’t want to be pushing them up constantly throughout the day. That’s why it’s important to figure out how your sunglasses should fit before you plan on buying them. 

They should feel snug, but not tight 

Your sunglasses should be snug, but not tight. In other words, if you bent down to pick something up off the floor, they shouldn’t be falling off of your head. However, they shouldn’t be so tight that they pinch your nose or leave marks alongside your face. 

Know your face shape 

Understanding your face shape will go along way in helping you find the right sunglasses. Round faces, for instance, should wear square or rectangular shades to contrast their soft curves. Square faces, meanwhile, will need round or oval-shaped frames to soften their sharp angles.If you’re not sure which face shape you have, then read over ourguide here. 

Make sure they’re not wider than your face 

Some people can pull off oversized sunglasses, but most of us can’t. To get a comfortable fit and a clean look, find sunglasses that are no wider than the widest part of your face. For some that may be their cheekbones, while others it’s their forehead. Measure your face and read our face shape guide above to better understand how wide your sunglasses should be. 

Don’t let your lashes touch your lenses 

Are your sunglasses brushing your lenses every time that you blink? If so, then that’s a sign that your sunglasses are too small and are sitting too close to your eyes. Not only is this annoying, but it could also mess up any mascara or other makeup you may be wearing around your eyes. 

Here at ShadeTree Sunglasses, we have plenty of different shapes and sizes of sunglasses for you to choose from. Look through our inventory today to get started!
