With over 100 years of optical expertise, we know one size does not fit every face. MOSCOT offers multiple sizes so that you can find the proper fit for the optimal optical experience!
We breakdown size by the width of the face using the following categories: Narrow, Average, Wide, and Extra Wide. We typically encourage narrow sizes for smaller faces and wide sizes for larger faces, though if it’s your first time purchasing, we recommend sticking to average. Using The LEMTOSH style as an example, we find that most people fall within ‘Average,’ with the most popular size being 46. As depicted on the model images below, the same frame in different sizes can evoke different looks. In this way, we offer different sizes pending individual fit, as well as personal style—if you want an oversized look, consider sizing up.Both models are wearing The LEMTOSH SUN in Blonde in sizes 44, 46, 49, and 52.
ALL ABOUT FIT
“An important part of fit is determining where your eye sits in the frame—your eyes should be well centered. Eyeglass frames that are too wide will make your eyes appear too close together, while narrow frames will give your eyes a wide set look.”
- Harvey Moscot, 4th Generation
If you are already wearing glasses, we recommend looking at your current pair as a size reference. Size is determined by the width of one lens in millimeters and is typically engraved in the inside temple of each frame.The size measurements of the frame go beyond just the horizontal eye size (as shown above). While it may be the most discussed dimension, and most beneficial when determining fit, bridge size and temple length are also key factors to consider when selecting a proper fitting frame.
Bridge Size is the distance between the lenses and temple length is the distance from the frame front to temple tip, both measured in millimeters.
Not only can ill-fitting glasses be frustrating, but they can also cause headaches and eye strain.
Here are a few ways to determine if your glasses are the wrong fit or just need an adjustment. After determining that your eyes sit in the center of your frame, move your head up and down and side to side. If the frame slides off your face or falls off, it just needs the proper adjustments by a licensed optician for a more secure fit.
Now, what if the opposite happens? If the temples are pressing into the side of your face and you feel like you must force them on, once again, all that’s needed is an adjustment. Take your glasses to a licensed optician to have the frame fit to your comfort level. Adjustments are a common practice. They are quick, easy and any optician can do them for you.Still have questions? Our frame fit specialists are here to help you get framed!
