I have a big head and a really round face! What sunglasses would suit me? Budget is £££'s willing to spend for a great flattering pair.

Lots of optical websites have that online virtual try on thing which would give you a good idea of the best style for your face shape.

I think oversized angular?

I think I look a bit stupid in anything oversized!

My sister is law says she has a giant head and wears Ray Ban wayfarers, they look great on her but I think they are the men's sized ones.

@keepingupwiththejones seriously wearing oversized glasses can make your features look smaller and angular evens out the proportions.
I've a round face and buy my specs from here: and their advice is spot on.

I have a round face and find that Rayban wayfarers suit me well

you need big glasses. Definitely not small round ones, they will make your head look bigger and rounder!

I agree, anything small- like John Lennon, round glasses will just make your head look massive! Everything needs to be in proportion so you need larger!

Another vote for RayBan Wayfarers. The original shape not the new smaller shape.
