Achieving The Perfect Fit

Premium acetate eyewear is more than just a fashion accessory; it's a fusion of style and comfort. Achieving the perfect fit for your frames involves a combination of understanding specifications, considering your face shape and making adjustments. Here's your go-to guide for luxury sunglasses:

Frame Dimensions

Start by familiarising yourself with your frame's specifications: lens width, bridge width and temple length, usually imprinted on the inside of the temple arm. For instance, the numbers 50-20-145 denote lens width (50mm), nose bridge width (20mm) and temple length (145mm). Knowing these measurements is crucial for finding frames that sit comfortably on your face.

Face Shape Matters

Take into account your face shape when choosing acetate frames. Different shapes complement various face structures, contributing to both comfort and aesthetics. Regardless of your facial structure, there's an ideal frame shape for you.

Nose Bridge Fit

The nose bridge plays a pivotal role in stability. Ensure it rests comfortably on your nose without sliding down or pinching. A well-fitted nose bridge enhances comfort and prevents constant adjustments throughout the day.

Temples And Ear Position

Check that the temples rest evenly on both ears. If you notice uneven pressure or if one side feels tighter, gentle adjustments might be necessary. Temples can often be carefully bent to achieve a better fit.

Behind-The-Ear Comfort

Comfort around the ear area is essential; the curvature behind your ears should be snug but not excessively tight. If discomfort persists, you can make adjustments to the acetate temples yourself, or seek assistance from a professional to tailor the fit to your unique physiological structure.

DIY Adjustments

For minor adjustments, consider carefully bending the temples inward for a tighter fit or widening them for comfort. Hot water is also recommended to make acetate frames more pliable, to avoid damage to frames. Heat them for about 30 seconds, in hot water (not boiling), then make necessary adjustments to the temples or nose bridge. Ensure frames cool and dry completely before wearing again. Repeat process, for desired fit.

Opting For Professional Adjustments

DIY adjustments aren't for everyone, when in doubt or if adjustments seem challenging, seek professional help. Visit an optician or eyewear specialist who can fine-tune your acetate frames for optimal comfort and fit. Their expertise will ensure precision adjustments, without compromising the integrity of the material.

Regular Maintenance

Keep your acetate frames in top condition by cleaning them regularly and storing them in their protective case. This routine prevents warping and maintains the material's integrity, ensuring your eyewear stays stylish and comfortable over time.
