How to Choose a Frame if You Have a Larger Head?

Finding the Right Fit

If you have a larger head, finding glasses that fit comfortably and look good can be a challenge. Here are a few tips to help you find the perfect pair of glasses for your larger head:

  1. Choose frames that are wider (at least 50 mm from edge to edge of one lens) or have a more rectangular shape. These types of frames will balance out the proportions of your face and help the glasses look more proportional.

  2. Consider trying on glasses at a store before purchasing online. This will allow you to try on different styles and sizes to find the best fit for your head.

  3. Avoid frames that are too small or narrow, as these will not fit comfortably and will make your head appear larger.

  4. Look for frames made from flexible materials, such as titanium, which can be adjusted for a better fit.

  5. Don't be afraid to experiment with different styles and shapes. Just because a particular style looks good on someone else doesn't mean it will necessarily look good on you.


Overall, the key to finding glasses that fit well and look good on a larger head is to choose frames that are proportional to your face.  A trained optician can help you choose the right pair of glasses that you love and feel comfortable wearing and customize the frame as needed.
