When small heads fit on top of small bodies eyeglasses can pose a problem like every thing else our petite frames do not fit into. Do your glasses slip off your nose? Do they not tuck properly behind your ears? And most important of all, are the frames flattering, chic and fashionable?
There is nothing wrong with wanting reading or permanent eye glasses that offer all of the above as well as flatter the shape of your petite face. Not to worry. We found some fabulous providers who know what a petite woman wants. But before we give the providers there is some tips to jot down somewhere when shopping for next new frames.
Because our faces are smaller, the width of the lens should fall somewhere between 46mm to 48mm. The majority of us have smaller bridges as well and to attain a comfortable fit it should fall in the range of 13 to 15mm, especially if your PD (pupillary distance) is small. If you want nose pads, go a point or two larger to adjust for fit.
Those brands that have a generous range of petite sizes are Kate Spade, Prada, Anne Klein, Lafont, Nine West, Skechers, Candies and Peachtree.
