One size does NOT fit all!

Why is size so important? For far too long, sunglasses have been a one-size-fits-all affair. But here at Faded Days, we're on a mission to change that forever. Why should all sunglasses be the same size when heads come in such a delightful variety of shapes and sizes? It's not rocket science; it's just science.

While we may not be scientists at FD, we're certainly problem-solvers. With our diverse range of sunglasses shapes and sizes, you can rest assured that you'll find sunglasses that not only look good but are also comfortable to wear.

Welcome to our exclusive guide, designed to help you choose the right size for that beautiful face of yours.

Frame Size
Sunglasses, like all things you wear, have their own sizing system. However, most sunglasses companies offer just one size, typically geared towards small to medium head sizes. But here at Faded Days, we do things differently. Below, you'll find our exclusive fitting guide, ensuring you make the right choice and finally get sunglasses that fit like a dream.

Face Shape

Sunglasses, like all fashion items, come down to personal preference. If you love a particular style, you should absolutely go for it. But for those who could use a little guidance, here are our tips for finding the right pair.

People typically fall into two categories, especially in the realm of larger heads: round or square-faced.

  • Square heads often complement softer shapes, like Aviator-style sunglasses.
  • Round heads benefit from more aggressive lines to contrast those soft features, such as sport-style frames or more angular shapes.

However, there's an exception to this rule – the classic wayfarer style. It remains one of the most popular shapes for a reason; it tends to suit almost any face shape.

If you're lucky enough to find yourself somewhere in the middle, congratulations – you've won the sunglasses lottery and can pull off either style.

Time to Try Larger Sunglasses?

It might be time to consider larger sunglasses if:

  • Your current sunglasses feel uncomfortable or, in some cases, cause pain.
  • Your sunglasses leave marks when you take them off.
  • Your sunglasses don't provide sufficient coverage for your vision.
  • You catch a glimpse of yourself and realize you look less than stellar in your small, ill-fitting shades.
