Thinking of ordering a pair of either Wayfarer II classic or the RB4305. Should women get standard or small size?

I’m an optician and sell RayBans so I have quite a lot of experience here! There is no way you can know without trying them on. Some women have large heads, some have small heads, same with men.
Unless you know yourself to have a particularly big or small head you really need to try them on (obviously not easy right now).
RayBans can be tricky in that I think a lot of styles don’t suit lots of people. Plus you need to see how they fit on your nose, how they fit along your brows etc - which cannot be adjusted with plastic frames. Make sure if you order them online that they have a good returns policy!

I bought mine direct from RayBan, free delivery and returns. I got Jackie Ohhs and love, love, love them!

They are the only sunglasss I have ever found that don’t hurt behind my ears

I have small ones , I haven't got a massive head . Not sure that helps!

I have the small wayfarers - until I went into an opticians (rather than a sunglasses outlet) I had no idea they did the smaller ones. The website has some in the small size, but not all of them.

What’s the lens size?

Oooh look -

A 58 is the ‘standard’ size

I have the ‘new’ wayfarers-pretty sure the model is a 2132. I have a pretty small head and they are a 52 width, I think.

Sorry 58 is the aviator standard (why was I thinking aviator?).

I treated myself to these while I've been locked down with my holiday cancelled!

I bit the bullet and went for tortoise shell wayfarer II classic in standard size. On their website it advised that 90% of people suit standard size. I got them direct from Ray Ban and got 30% off for signing up to their newsletter. They arrived today and I love them. I've only had cheap ones before. The difference in quality and weight is so noticeable.
