Leading eyeglass manufacturers have upgraded styles giving smaller faces more options. There has never before been more fashion choices in women’s sunglasses for petite faces. For smaller people who have been dissatisfied with over-sized lenses, earpieces that were simply too long and frames that were always a bit too wide, selections are available to solve those problems. No longer do you have to settle for eyewear that just doesn’t fit right.
Knowing what to look for is key to selecting the right shape, style and frame to fit a smaller face and head. Sunglass shoppers should look for narrow fit eyewear with a lens diameter of less than 50mm. When comparing frames, measurements appear as three numbers separated by hyphens, the first number indicating the diameter of a single lens.
- Wiley X AirRage is a wraparound style designed specifically for a narrow fit. This style is available in a variety of lens finishes: smoke grey, mirrored, polarized, etc.
- Wiley X Saber Advanced is a semi-rimless, wraparound ballistics style frame. Featuring interchangeable lenses, the temples of the eyewear are also adjustable to customize length and fit making this another option for those who need a smaller fit.
- Wiley X Talon Advanced is a fully adjustable semi-rimless frame. Temples and nose bridge fit can be customized for any facial measurement or shape.
Traditional & Glam
- Ray Ban Original Wayfarer is, perhaps, the most classic sunglass fashion that looks good on just about everyone. This eyewear is available with a frame option that is scaled just for smaller faces.
- Ray Ban Clubmaster is another retro style suited for a narrow face featuring curved lines in metal or plastic frames.
- Carrera 123/S is a full rim frame that has a bit of classic cat-eye feel to its oval lens shape. With a 49mm lens diameter it is perfect for a feminine look and comes in eight different frame colors.
- Fossil 2026/P/S is a glamorous oversized style scaled to fit petites. It comes in classic black or you can make a statement with a faux tortoiseshell or peach hued opalescent effect.
- JP Aria, JP Glides, JP Razor and JP Binya are all designed for smaller frames of prescription eyewear that require fitover sunglass protection. Petite prescription eyeglass wearers should opt for these designs that meet the needs of their smaller frame dimensions. This style is available in a variety of lens shades and frame colors with the added benefit of full UV protection and polarized lenses.
Tactical & Goggles
