What face shape are you?
And why does it matter?
Let us measure your face
and recommend frame shapes for you

Have you ever wondered why spectacles or sunglasses look great on some people but not on others? Having difficulty finding a pair to suit you? Well the answer lies in the shape of your face! The secret to finding suitable spectacles, either normal optical glasses or sunwear, is to select a pair that compliments your face shape by contrasting its contours rather than matching them. As a rule of thumb there are 6 different face shapes:


Round Face: Select angular or square/rectangle shapes to elongate the face and give a thinner appearance. 

Square Face: Select circular shapes to soften the angular contours of your face.

Inverted Triangular Face: Select shapes which will add width at the bottom to soften the upper contours and help elongate the face. An example of such a shape is 'Aviator'.

Oval Face: Lucky you! Almost any shape will suit you, but any frame which adds width towards the top or bottom of your face will work.

Triangular Face: Select shapes which will add width at the top to contrast your facial features. An example of such a shape is 'Cateye'.

Heart Face: Select angular shapes to compliment the narrower lower part of your face, such as square frames, which will compliment the widest point of your face.

Further frame fitting considerations include your overall head size, the shape of your brow line, the distance between your eyes, and the width and shape of your nose. At Boutique Optical we realise everyone is shaped individually and so we are able to design bespoke glasses to fit your face and style needs.
