Aviator sunglasses for a small face?
August 31, 2013 5:45 PM   Subscribe

As said, I am a woman with a small face and most aviators are too large. Ray ban aviators (3025) come in small (55mm) and large (58mm). The smalls suit me fine but I would like to find other brands of a similar small size that curve or wrap around my face a little more as the Raybans are pretty flat across, even though the aviator shape is perfect. Can you suggest any? I have some Marc Jacobs which I also really like but they too are too large, I look like I'm playing dress up. I'm in Australia but am happy to ship if I find something I like.

You want the Maui Jim Baby Beach. (So do I, actually.)

I'd suggest Randolph Engineering. http://www.randolphusa.com/collections/

Any chance they make some of those brands in kids' sizes? I also have a narrow face and have the same problem, and while I lucked out with a pair of Kate Spade sunglasses (not aviators, though), I went with a kid-sized Calvin Klein frames for my regular prescription lenses.

They're great sunglasses. Higher quality, in my opinion, than Ray-Bans, and also usually cheaper.

I have had your exact problem, so count me a second for the Maui Jim Baby Beach - attractive colors for frames and lenses, great distortion-free optics, and best of all they fit my small face.

Response by poster: I want to mark a best answer here but I can't try on any Randolph sunnies, I can't find anyone who stocks them in Australia, but thank you all for your help. I may end up taking a gamble and buy some sight unseen.
