Warmer temperatures entice us into going outdoors to enjoy some fresh air and sunshine. Don’t forget, while you’re slathering on the sunblock, that your eyes need protection from the sun as well. A good pair of sunglasses protects your eyes from harmful UV rays and keeps you looking stylish at the same time.
Finding a good pair of oversized sunglasses that are a perfect fit on a big head can be a problem. Although they are considered to be a one-size-fits-all product, this is not true for a portion of the population. If you have a wide face or a large head, it might be difficult to find the perfect pair of sunglasses frames with the correct lens width, in a size that's a comfortable fit.
If the frames are too tight they can leave marks on your nose or at the sides of your temples, then you need a wide frame. They may also cause you to have headaches when wearing them for long periods of time. Not all sunglasses fit the shape and size of every head, and an ill-fitting pair can be uncomfortable and cause pain.
Finding a Pair That Fits Big Heads
Our XXL sunglasses are designed to fit wider faces comfortably whilst still offering a classic style. There is more width on the frames to accommodate wider temples, so there is no pinching or pressing on the sides of your face. Nobody should have to wear sunglasses that are too tight just to protect their eyes during an outing at the park or a nature hike. Our Sunglasses for big heads solves the problem of frames that are too tight and don’t fit well. There are sizes that fit every person including our Regular lines, Large, XL and XXL sunglasses.
When it comes to ensuring a good fit, it pays to know your frame size. Since we are referring to people with a wide face or larger head, the extended sizes are XL and XXL sunglasses. There is no reason to struggle with sunglasses that are too small and don’t fit right to be stylish and well-put-together.
How to Choose the Best Sunglasses for Big Heads
One good method for picking out a pair of sunglasses is to go by face shape. Look at your reflection in a mirror and determine if you have a round, oval, heart, or square-shaped face. To find out your face shape, look straight ahead and draw the outline of your face on the mirror in front of you to see what shape you have.
By Face Shape
When choosing sunglasses by face, picking a contrasting frame shape style is often very flattering. For example, a round face often looks great with squared, boxy-style frames, and large square heads may look best in a round pair of lenses like the classic John Lennon style. An oval face can wear almost any style and look great. With these tips you are sure to find sunglasses with wider lenses and temple distance for most wide heads when buying sunglasses.
Measure Your Face
Another way to make sure you get a good fit is to measure your face or use the measurements on a pair of reading or prescription glasses you currently wear. If you have a pair of glasses that fit you comfortably, measure the frame width, the bridge, length of the temple arms, and height of the lenses.

Best Sunglasses for Eye Protection
You need something that will protect your eyes from the sun’s UV rays while still blocking the glare for daytime driving. Oversized sunglasses are another layer of sun protection just like sunblock and wide-brim hats. Everyone should have a pair of well fitting sunglasses frames for their head size, with the correct lens width, even children.
Sunglasses protect your eyes from UV rays in the same way that sunblock and clothing protect your skin. Sunglasses that block both UVA and UVB rays offer the best protection from cataracts and skin cancer.
Different Lens Colors
Sunglasses come in a variety of colors for the frames as well as the lenses. Faded Days has a good selection of frames in multiple colors and styles. From aviator glasses to snow goggles, there is a style for everyone.
Polarized lenses help reduce glare. Darker lenses help you see better when the sun is very bright. Sunglasses with a yellow tint help block the glare you can get from driving in the direction of the sun. Blue- or purple-tinted sunglass lenses enhance color perception. They help you see objects more clearly while offering protection from reflective surfaces like water and snow.
