How do I know if I need oversized sunglasses for big heads?

Regular sunglasses are too tight.

If you tend to get headaches or other discomfort when wearing sunglasses that are too tight for your face, consider taking them back and shopping around for some big head sunglasses.

Not only do large fit sunglasses offer more protection from harmful UV rays if you choose the correct lens width, but they can also help to mitigate headaches and eyestrain.

Your sunglasses temples stick out too far.

Ideally, the arms should not stick out any further than the widest point of your frame and they should measure long enough to rest comfortably on your ears.

If the arms do stick out, they are too tight, this can not only make your sunglasses look clunky and awkward but can also make them uncomfortable as mentioned above.

Ultimately, keeping your sunglasses' arms within your goldilocks fashion zone will ensure both great comfort and style within a large fit.

They leave marks on the side of your head.

If your sunglasses are too tight for your face, they can cause red marks on the side of your face or an indentation on the skin. This can cause issues with circulation, resulting in painful headaches that are difficult to relieve.

You are already shopping in the "big hats" section.

If you wear a size 7 3/4 hat, you are now entering the sunglasses for wide faces zone. Time to get some big head sunglasses.


Best sunglasses for big heads

If you're a frequent wearer of sunglasses, then you know how important it is to choose the right style and fit for your face shape.

One of the main things to look out for when buying sunglasses for a big head is their size, shape and nose bridge width. Another factor to consider when it comes to choosing the best sunglasses for you is the comfort and look of the arms or temples, paying particular attention to the temple length. The temples of the frame should be just the right length so they bend downwards at about a 45-degree angle at the point just behind the top of your ears. About 3cm to 5cm of the temple should extend beyond this bend point for a perfect temple length.

For the frame, ideally it should measure large enough to completely cover your eyes without feeling too snug or heavy on your face.

With a little bit of research and trial-and-error, you should be able to find sunglasses that can offer the optimal combination of comfort and protection, and once you do, you'll never need to worry about getting headaches from wearing tight fitting sunglasses again.


The frustration of searching for large sunglasses

As anyone with a large head has ever gone shopping for sunglasses knows, it can be difficult to find sunglasses for big heads.

You picture yourself wearing the movie star wayfarer or aviators, just to find there isn't a frame that is even close to fitting or being a comfortable fit.

Most styles seem to be designed for people with smaller classic faces or a more common head size, not people with large square heads. And if you have a wide or oval-shaped face, it can be next to impossible to find a pair that doesn't squash your face or give you a headache after just a few minutes.

Even if you do manage to find a pair that kind of fits, they never feel quite right or are as comfortable as you'd like them to be.

Then forget about trying to go on a shopping spree for wide face sunglasses that are also stylish - most of the time, you end up settling for whatever is closest to your size rather than what looks good on you.

It's no wonder so many people with larger heads go through their lives without ever finding a pair of large sunglasses with their perfect fit. Maybe one day someone will finally design a line of sunglasses specifically for people with larger faces :) Can you relate? Then you need a wide pair of sunglasses.


Tactics to locate sunglasses frames and lenses for big heads

One of the best ways to search for sunglasses with polarized lenses for big heads is to shop online rather than just in your general location, or waiting to be served ads at home.

This is because you'll have a much wider selection to choose from than you would if you were to shop at a traditional brick-and-mortar store.

Your local high street shop will tend to cater for the masses and people with more commonly sized heads, rather than the frame width you might be looking for. Plus, shopping online makes it easy to compare prices and find the perfect pair of shades for your budget.
