How Should Aviators Fit?

Before we get into the individual measurements, there are a few key features to keep in mind when shopping for your Ray-Ban Aviator size. First, check out the graphic below to see the measurements we will be discussing in this post.


1. Lens Width/Eyesize 2. Lens Height 3. Bridge Width

Ray-Ban Aviator with Adjustable Nose Pads & Flexible Temple Tips

As we go through the measurements, you’ll notice that all Original Aviators (RB3025) have the same bridge size. Spoiler alert: it is a narrow 14mm. The bridge measurement (#3 in the diagram above) is the narrowest distance between the lenses. If you are used to acetate frames without nose pads, this bridge measurement may sound alarmingly narrow, but don't worry! All Aviator sunglasses have adjustable nose pads. The bridge on the Aviator does not come in contact with your face—the nose pads do. They are the key to unlocking your perfectly custom fit.

Additionally, the Aviator has adjustable temple tips. Say goodbye to the days of uncomfortable fit and aggravating pressure points! The Aviator’s temple tips are flexible so you get a secure fit and all-day comfort.

With these easy adjustments you can make on your own, the way your Aviator fits is totally up to you. For more coverage you can adjust the nose pads to bring the frame closer to your face. If you want more of a fashionable, trendy look, you can adjust them to sit a bit further down your nose. Now that we know the importance of the Aviator’s adjustable nose pads, and temple tips, it’s time to get into those measurements!

RB3025 Original Aviator Sizes

With different variations of the style out there, you may be wondering which is the Original Aviator. The Aviator with model code "RB3025" is the true classic. The Aviator is the first pair of sunglasses Ray-Ban designed. Originally created to protect US fighter pilots' eyes while flying at high altitudes, the shades featured a gold frame with Ray-Ban's proprietary G-15 lenses, which filter out 85% of visible light. This classic combo is still one of the top choices for eyewear in the world. With three sizes available, learn more about each one below to find your perfect fit.

RB3025 55 Eyesize

The smallest of the three Ray-Ban Aviator sizes, say hello to the Aviator 55mm eyesize! If you’re wondering how eyesize is determined, this measurement reflects the widest point on the lens. In the measurement diagram above, eyesize is also called lens width. Due to the dramatic teardrop shape, this style can easily look too large when the correct size is not chosen. If you have delicate facial features or a small face, the Aviator 55mm is ideal. While the lenses provide excellent coverage, the Aviator 55mm is not overwhelming. This size works well on most women and men with small faces.

Aviator 55mm Dimensions:

  • SportRx Frame Width: 130mm
  • Lens Width/Eyesize: 55mm
  • Lens Height: 47mm
  • Bridge: 14mm
  • Temple Length: 135mm

Prescription Compatible:

RB3025 58 Eyesize

The 58mm is Ray-Ban's standard Aviator size. Typically, we see standard sizes when there are multiple sizing options. By labeling a specific size as "Standard," this means that 90% of people select that size. A happy medium within the RB3025 Aviator sizes, the 58mm is an excellent place to start if you are new to the style. If you have a more petite face, this size will provide an oversized look.

Aviator 58mm Dimensions:

  • SportRx Frame Width: 136mm
  • Lens Width/Eyesize: 58mm
  • Lens Height: 50mm
  • Bridge: 14mm
  • Temple Length: 135mm

RB3025 62 Eyesize

Big heads rejoice! Rounding out the Original Aviator sizes is the 62mm. The largest of the three, the RB3025 62mm is ideal for those who struggle with finding a frame that fits. If you feel that most sunglasses are too small, squeeze uncomfortably at your temples, or do not provide enough coverage, the RB3025 62mm is here to take care of all those issues. This is a very large frame. If you’re looking at the Aviator 62mm, chances are you’re very familiar with the fit concerns just mentioned. If not, you’re probably better off in the 58!

RB3026 Aviator II

A quick note on the Aviator 62mm Eyesize. There are two model numbers floating around this particular size: the RB3025 Aviator 62 Eyesize & the RB3026 Aviator II. After much research, we are here to clarify the confusion surrounding the two. A few minor differences to point out are that the RB3025 Aviator is available in three eye sizes, while the RB3026 Aviator II is only available in one eyesize—62mm. When comparing the RB3026 Aviator II to the RB3025 Aviator 62mm Eyesize, they are visually identical and have the same measurements. The biggest difference here is colorway options. So, if the 62mm Eyesize is the best size for you, take a look at both model numbers to see all possible color combinations.

RB3025 Aviator 62mm / RB3026 Aviator II Dimensions:

  • SportRx Frame Width: 140mm
  • Lens Width/Eyesize: 62mm
  • Lens Height: 54mm
  • Bridge: 14mm
  • Temple Length: 140mm

Additional Aviator Styles

Now that we've covered each Original Ray-Ban Aviator size, let's take a look at a couple other styles in the Aviator collection.

RB3625 New Aviator 58 Eyesize

The New Aviator debuted in 2022. It is very similar in style to the original with a few modifications. The New Aviator features a bolder frame. The iconic Ray-Ban rivet shape is engraved into the temples and bridge for a more luxurious and artistic look. So, if you love the Aviator shape but want a thicker frame that really stands out, this is a great option.

Additionally, if you have a high Rx, and your prescription isn't compatible with the Original Aviator, give the New Aviator a try. This style features a 4-base frame, whereas the Original Aviator features a 6-base frame. This makes the New Aviator the flattest and thickest of the collection, and the most prescription-friendly. This frame appears larger than the Original 58mm style because of the bolder frame, but the fit is very similar.

New Aviator Dimensions:

  • SportRx Frame Width: 136mm
  • Lens Width/Eyesize: 58mm
  • Lens Height: 50.4mm
  • Bridge: 14mm
  • Temple Length: 135mm

Prescription Compatible:

  • Yes; Good option for high Rx

RBR0101S Aviator Reverse

The Aviator Reverse is the latest Aviator style on the market—and the most unique. Ray-Ban switched it up and put reverse lenses into its most iconic frame. The Reverse features concave lenses instead of traditional convex lenses. This means the lenses curve inward toward your face, rather than away from it. Due to the lens design, this style is not available with polarized or prescription lenses.

If you prefer low bridge fit eyewear, this is a great option for you. The lens curvature aligns with the natural curve of your cheekbones. If you have tried standard Aviator frames and found that the teardrop lens rests on your cheeks, you won't find this problem with the Aviator Reverse. The Reverse comes in two sizes: a 59mm and a 62mm. Both options are on the larger size. For those who fit well in the 58mm Original Aviator, the 59mm Reverse will fit you similarly. If you need an XL frame, go for the 62mm.

Aviator Reverse Dimensions 58mm / 62mm:

  • SportRx Frame Width: 136mm / 142mm
  • Lens Width/Eyesize: 59mm / 62mm

Prescription Compatible:

  • No
