Size matters. Finding the perfect silhouette for your face shape is just one step of the way when leveling up your style. Another QUAY component of choosing sunnies is finding the right frame size. Because we know the power of a good fit, we’ve gathered everything you need to know about sunglasses sizing in one convenient place.
How to Measure Your Frame Size
When considering glasses measurements, there are QUAY numbers to keep in mind. Here’s a guide on how to measure glasses and their components.
Frame width: Measure from the outer left edge to the outer right edge of your glasses.
Lens height: Measure from the highest point of your lens to its lowest point.
Bridge width: At the top of your bridge, measure from the inner edge of one lens to the inner edge of the other one.
Arm length: Measure from the hinge to the tip of the glasses arm.
QUAY Frame Size Options
QUAY’s frame size options include: small, medium, and oversized. When you look at a pair of sunnies on QUAY’s website, scroll down to the “Frame Size” section to check its size. Beneath the "Product Description" tab, there are measurements for frame width and lens height, which give you an idea of how the frames will fit on your face. Plus, you get the bridge width and arm length as well.
So what are some extended size options? Let’s take, for example, HIGH KEY, a bold aviator perfect for a Top Gun-inspired look. You can get it as HIGH KEY MEDIUM (142 mm frame width), HIGH KEY LARGE (146 mm frame width), or HIGH KEY EXTRA LARGE (153 mm frame width). On the sized down end of the spectrum, find faves such as ON THE FLY SMALL (137 mm frame width) and TOTAL VIBE SMALL (137 mm).
Fresh Ways to Style Different Frame Sizes
No matter what sunglasses shape, color, or material you’re looking for, find a variety of styles in different sizes. Here are go-to sunnies in different frame sizes and tips on how to style them.
Small Frame Glasses: NO ENVY
For a fitted pair of sunnies, keep it fresh with oversized attire. Even with narrow sunnies, you can make your outfit bigger and bolder to balance your look. Turn heads with NO ENVY. For statement flair, this wrap-style shade features reinforced arms, gradient lenses, and snag-free nose pads. Pair it with a bold lip, oversized outerwear, and statement gold drip to wow the crowd.
Medium Frame Glasses: High Key
Medium frames are versatile, so you can dress them up or down — they center your look, no matter if you’re running errands or heading to a holiday kickback. But just because they’re versatile doesn’t mean they can’t make a statement — many feature head-turning silhouettes such as cat eyes and circles.
For a just-right medium frame, keep it HIGH KEY. These black everyday sunnies deliver style with a sleek cat eye shape in addition to metal deets at the brow bar and nose bridge. Play up your specs appeal with a classic turtleneck or tee with jeans — maybe add a swipe of your fave bold lip color.
Oversized Frame Glasses: ICY
Oversized shades give you celeb glamor without much effort — in fact, they pair beautifully with basic pieces. Keep it ICY with big sunglasses featuring thick, reinforced temples and snag-free, built-in nose pads. Wear ICY with a simple neutral blazer or shirt, but don’t shy away from drip — sized up earrings can complement the sized up shades beautifully.
Whichever size werks best for you, find just-right fits from QUAY’s extended size collection.
