Petite Ray Bans – No More Looking Like The Fly!

Sometimes you wonder how you never knew something before. Was everyone keeping this a secret from me? I actually found me some petite Ray Bans!  I’ve always wanted a pair of Ray Bans that didn’t make me look like the fly! I can’t tell you how happy I am! When you’re petite it’s all these little things that turn into monstrous annoyances.

I’ve admired many a blogger wearing Ray Bans…

There are so many times that I have tried on the Classic Aviator Ray-Ban sunglasses praying that they won’t cover nearly all of my face! So many times that I’ve admired them on fashionista bloggers.

And then I got an email from Smartbuy Sunglasses asking me to choose a pair of sunglasses and share this online shop with you.

So I set about browsing all the thousands of sunglasses available…

Now, this website is vast! It’s not only sunglasses that they stock, it’s also a shop for your glasses too. I have to be very careful when choosing anything like this and was a little apprehensive because of my small frame face. I started to look at the Raybans and there it was! These glasses came in two different sizes 55mm or 58mm

55mm = petite ray bans!

Out came the tape measure and the difference was quite significant. The price was good too. These retail on the site for £86.95 and if you take a regular size pair of sunglasses at 58mm they are available in other colours.

These Aviators are Matt Gold with a Brown Gradient lens. You can find them here or you may prefer some of the other famous named brands that they have available. I just don’t understand how I’ve never come across the fact that Ray Bans come in a petite size and never been offered this size in a shop before? Did you know?

Sunglasses are needed all year round!

Of course, you will always see me with a pair of sunglasses perched on my head or on my face in all of my photos! Even though it’s cold enough to warrant the fur coat today, the sun is blazing and yes they are needed. Plus of course, there’s the driving. The winter sun is always on the low side at this time of year & it’s good to protect your eye’s and stop those crow’s feet from deepening with less squinting!


I can’t tell you how super made up I am to find a pair of glasses that suit my small face! Are you a fan of Aviators?

The Ray-Bans come in a cute case with of course a cloth cleaner. 100% UV protection and I just love this colour! I’m going to start browsing for other colours now that I’ve found them! Do take a look at the Smartbuy Glasses site, you might find an absolute gem of a bargain and glasses that you’ve been searching for!

    Great glasses, but they don’t work for my face 🙁 Thanks for sharing with #PoCoLo

    I had no idea Ray Bans had different sizes! What a good bit of information! Those sunglasses look fabulous on you!

    Laurie I have this very same pair and I love them. They are a casual classic. They look great on you too. #TweensTeensBeyond

    These are really stylish Laurie and the size would be perfect for me. Thanks for sharing with us at #overthemoon. I need to wear sunglasses year round but Ray Bans always make me look like a fly! Will give these a go.

    LI am a big fan of Ray Bans especially the aviators shape and they look great on you Laurie. It is about time to get to the broader market. Just imagine how many women wished to have them and now they are here

      Thanks, Anna. I’m wondering how long they have been available and if this has just been overlooked by so many women wanting a pair and just not realising xx

      Now there’s something else I just learned. I didn’t know you could get them in normal glasses!

  11. December 7, 2017 / 5:58 pm

    They suit you so much. Ray Bans don’t suit me sadly but they look great on my husband x

      I’m surprised, Vicki. I know you look good in your large sunglasses. At least you can pull that off xx

  12. December 7, 2017 / 4:42 pm

    Laurie, first, I love your coat! So cozy and pretty! second, i am with you in regard to needing small frames! i actually had a lady at Lenscrafters tell me i might need the child’s section, as i have a smaller face too. Those aviators look so good on you!

    Laurie, you are clearly beside yourself with excitement! And rightly so too. You look absolutely fantastic in the Ray Bans. I usually struggle with finding sunglasses to fit my face too because i’ve got quite a skinny face, especially where the sunglasses sit. I love the idea of petite ones – I wonder if they’d be good for me? Hm. My only problem is that I wear glasses full time now so I’d have to find prescription lenses too!

      I think they have them on the site Suzy. I will be wearing glasses full time soon too xx

    Wow what a great find, well done and they suit you so well. Yes I agree fur coat weather is finally upon us. I’m needing a new coat this year, but haven’t seen the right one yet. Thanks for sharing Laurie and I hope you are well. x Jacqui

    It’s not something I’ve ever thought of, mainly as I love my sunglasses to cover as much of my face as possible, but what a good and obvious idea to make different sizes! #bloggersbest

    • laurie
      December 12, 2017 / 6:25 am

      It is a fantastic idea Briony. There are so many of us petites that struggle to find items like this. xx

    This is such a great idea to have a petite version. I have a pair kinda like these, but my hubby wears them more than I do because he thinks they are too big on my face!!
    I guess I need the petite ones!!

    • laurie
      December 6, 2017 / 6:41 am

      Exactly Jodie! My other half has often worn mine because they come up so big! xx

  21. December 5, 2017 / 4:37 pm

    I love the aviator style of sunglasses and you are rocking these! Since I wear prescription glasses, I am very particular in my sunglass choices (I only get one or two pair at time due to the cost of lenses). You look like a star in these, my friend. And that fur coat is everything. I swoon…

    Thanks for linking up with me! #SpreadTheKindness

      I could do with some reactors too Shelbee! I know the same company supplies these. I think I will look into that for the next pair xx

  22. December 5, 2017 / 2:24 pm

    Beautiful look! Love your coat and those sunnies!

    Oh my goodness, I’m onto that! I need them in my life too being petite. I’ve never owned Ray-bans. It’s an aspiration.

    Laurie, wow, wow, wow! You look so perfectly glam classy in these aviators, and teamed with your gorgeous fur, oh my, where did you find it? Love the fur and jean mix. I used to love Ray Bans, such giod quality paired with style, but because of eye issues I have to wear old lady solar shields and I really do look like The Fly, sadly!

    • laurie
      December 6, 2017 / 6:45 am

      The fur jacket was a find at TK Maxx a couple of years back Mary. It’s a good place to find a good fur coat xx

  26. December 4, 2017 / 9:20 pm

    That’s news to me too Laurie! How funny that these things exist and yet we’re oblivious. Anyway, they look fab and you don’t in the least resemble a fly!
