Ray-Ban Aviator sunglasses are a timeless icon that continue to be a favorite style today. Despite the Aviator’s iconic status, determining one’s Aviator size is still a personal quest and the most popular question we get at SportRx! It seems the Aviator sizing alludes even the savviest of sunglass collectors, so our Ray-Ban Aviator Size Guide is here to demystify the topic. We’ll cover the fit features, breakdown the dimensions of each Aviator size, and provide a helpful comparison chart so you can determine your perfect Ray-Ban Aviator size!
Ray-Ban Aviator Size Guide
Join Gabriela as she shows the differences between Ray-Ban Aviator sizes!
Before we go into the individual measurements, there are a few key features to keep in mind when shopping for your Ray-Ban Aviator size. Firstly, and most importantly, Aviator sunglasses have adjustable nose pads. As we go through the measurements, you’ll notice that each Aviator size has the same bridge size. Spoiler alert: It is a narrow 14 mm. Now, even though this bridge measurement may sound alarmingly narrow, do not fear! The adjustable nose pad is the key to unlocking a perfectly custom fit. The bridge is simply calculated by measuring the narrowest distance between the lenses. However, this is not where the frame makes contact with your face. That, my friends, is the job of the adjustable nose pad. What this means for you, is a unique fit that is completely customizable.
Secondly, the Aviator has covered temple tips. Say good-bye to the days of an uncomfortable fit and aggravating pressure points! The Aviator’s temple tips are easy to maneuver so you get a secure, yet flexible fit and all-day comfort.
Now that we know the importance of the Aviator’s adjustable nose pad, and the benefit of covered temple tips, it’s time to get into those measurements!
The smallest of the three Ray-Ban Aviator sizes, say hello to the Aviator 55 Eyesize! If you’re wondering how eyesize is determined, this measurement reflects the widest point on the lens. 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 55 Eyesize is ideal. While the lenses provide excellent coverage, the Aviator 55 is not overwhelming. This size works well on most women and men with small faces.
Aviator 55 Dimensions:
- SportRx Frame Width: 130 mm
- Lens Width: 55 mm
- Lens Height: 47 mm
- Bridge: 14 mm
- Temple Length: 135 mm
The Aviator 58 Eyesize is considered a “Standard” size by Ray-Ban. 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 58 is an excellent place to start if you are new to the style.
Aviator 58 Dimensions:
- SportRx Frame Width: 136 mm
- Lens Width: 58 mm
- Lens Height: 50 mm
- Bridge: 14 mm
- Temple Length: 135 mm
Big heads rejoice! Rounding out the Aviator sizes is the 62 Eyesize. The largest of the three, the RB3025 62 Eyesize 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 62 is here to take care of all those issues. This is a very large frame. If you’re looking at the Aviator 62, chances are you’re very familiar with the fit concerns I just mentioned. If not, you’re probably better off in the 58!
RB3026 Aviator II
A quick note on the Aviator 62 Eyesize. There are two model numbers floating around this particular size: the RB3025 Aviator 62 Eyesize & the RB3026 Aviator II. After much research, I am here to clarify the confusion surrounding the two. A few minor differences to point out are that the RB3025 Aviator is available in 3 eyesizes while the RB3026 Aviator II is only available in 1 eyesize, 62. When comparing the RB3026 Aviator II to the RB3025 Aviator 62 Eyesize, they are visually identical and have the exact same measurements. As far as color offerings, it appears that certain color combinations are only available in one model number and not the other, and vice-versa. However, this could be due to the confusion around the model numbers and the fact that they are so often used interchangeably. Either way, if you determine the 62 Eyesize to be the best size for you, I’d recommend looking at both model numbers to see all possible color combinations.
RB3025 Aviator 62 / RB3026 Aviator II Dimensions:
- SportRx Frame Width: 140 mm
- Lens Width: 62 mm
- Lens Height: 54 mm
- Bridge: 14 mm
- Temple Length: 140 mm

Take a look at those bridge measurements! This goes to show how the bridge is a poor indicator of fit on this particular style. The Aviator’s adjustable nose pad is a crucial feature on this frame and the reason why you get such a perfect fit!)
