If you have a wider face, maybe a square or round face shape, your glasses might sometimes feel tight or look disproportionate against your facial features. This is why it is so important to find the right pair of glasses for you, and Specsavers is here to help with a range of glasses sizes to make sure there’s a frame for every face.
What style of glasses best suits wide faces?
The best glasses for wide faces tend to be rectangular shaped frames or classic styles like the Wayfarer. Geometric frames that are wide, rather than round or long, elongate the face and effectively accentuate your features. Wide faces often suit big glasses frames too, so why not try an oversized retro look?
Don’t forget, what matters most is how confident your glasses make you feel and how comfortable they are on your face. Your face is unique and you should celebrate your features in any which way you want, whether they're balanced or not! What’s most important is how your glasses fit, which is why Specsavers have prioritised creating a wide range of glasses in a variety of sizes — including petite and bigframes.
