An introduction to Cubitts frame sizing
We’re changing that.
Each Cubitts frame comes in up to five sizes - from the Lilliputian to the colossal, the capacious to the svelte. They also come in a range of different fits.
What size am I?
If you don’t have a current frame, stand in front of a mirror and hold the ruler in line with your temples.
The top of your frames should be no higher than the line of your eyebrows
Wider shapes tend to be worn in a size larger - this include cat-eyes and aviator shapes, plus sunglasses.
What fit am I?
Choose a fit which maximises the area of contact between the frame and your nose - the spectacle kiss, if you will.
This will not only make a frame more comfortable to wear, but reduce the chance of it slipping down your nose.
Our range of frame fits.
If your nose is of a diminutive nature - or starts lower than your pupils - try our frames with a low bridge. Look for this if the top of your existing frame is sitting too low, and obstructing your vision. Shop frames for Low Noses.
If blessed with a Roman or Grecian nose - where your nose begins above your pupils - try our frames with a high bridge. Look for this if your frame is sitting too high on your face (e.g. your eyebrows are in the lenses). Shop frames for High Noses.
If in doubt, try a frame with nose pads which can be adjusted, providing a graceful confluence between human and spectacle. Shop frames with Adjustable Nose Pads.
All our acetate frames are also available with a deeper nose pad addition - you can add this free of charge at checkout.
