Ray ban wayfarer Size?
The 50mm corresponds to a medium size.
The 54mm is not extreme but it would be better for someone with larger features. It is almost 10mm wider than the medium.
The Wayfarer is popular with both women and men. The sizes are not set up for gender so you should pick whatever fits best.
The Ray Ban Outsiders Icons RB2132 New Wayfarer Sunglasses is avialable in a 52mm size and is worn by average to large sizes.
If you buy your Wayfarer from us, you can exchange them if the size is not right.
We are an authorized dealer of 100% genuine Ray-Ban Eyewear that is brand new and comes with the full warranty from Ray-Ban.

Ray-Ban Medium Wayfarer: Ray Ban RB 2140 50 mm lens size
Ray-Ban Small Wayfarer: Ray Ban RB 2132 in 52 mm lens size
RB 2132 frame has a smaller fit than RB 2140. That's why RB 2132 in 52 mm size is smaller than RB 2140 in 50 mm size.
Ray Ban also makes a few more Wayfarer sunglasses styles. They all differ in color scheme and frame/lens geometry. You can check all the current Wayfarer Ray Ban models here.

Let me know if you are interested in any model in particular and have any questions about it.
Unfortunately, there is no official comparison information from Ray Ban. I just have a few pairs of Ray-Ban Wayfarer sunglasses in front of me, take the measurements, and let a few people try them on, compare and share my thoughts. I rely on the feedback from my customers as well. My Ray Ban representative also agrees with me So, there are good chances that I'm right.
If you buy this frame, please post a few lines and tell us if you do like or not how it fits. Everybody is different, there is never 100% guarantee that the sunglasses you have never tried before will work. But we have 30 days no restocking fee return policy, so you can always return them or exchange for a different model. You will be short only off the postage fee to send the sunglasses back to us. On the bright side, we do not have that many returns & exchanges, so for the majority of our customers that works!
I have tried the 2140 50mm and they align perfectly with the sides of my face, however, I tend to prefer larger sunglasses.
If my calculations are correct, the difference in total length is 4mm only.
50mm: 50+50+22= 122mm
54mm: 54+54+18= 126mm
So this means that I will have an extra of 2mm on each side of my face with the 54mm, right?
Would you advice me to go for the 54mm? You've mentioned that the difference isn't "extreme"...

My downside is that I have a very wide face. At Macys once, I tried on all their wayfarers and none of them look right on me, even the employee helping me said they don't look right.
Just last week, I went to buy new eyeglasses, and even though I ran in the same problems with the Wayfarers, I was able to figure out a perfect size of glasses for me - 56mm.
Would you be able to tell me if wayfarers can be made in a 56mm size?
I saw the sizes a couple posts above - S M L size - and I was wondering if there was a XL. lol
Thanks for any help.
I have been able to try out the size 50 in a store and they were a little smaller than I expected on me and think a bigger size would fit me well
How much bigger are size 54? they didn't have them in that size in the store and I'm thinking of ordering them, but I'm worried they might be too big
Also, the smallest size done in the wayfarers 2140 is 47mm (most colours). I originally bought some 2140 in 50mm and found them to be too big for my face, resting too deep on my cheeks. I then got some 47mm in the same style, and although these rest okay on my cheeks and nose, they are too wide for my face....gap between the arms of the glasses and my temples. They feel loose too.
I asked my local optom to tighten them, but they can only do this a bit, as they can break - so they tell me!
Is this just the style?
I just tried on 2140 and 2132. I found that the size of the 2140 frame was better (bigger) however, the arms of the 2132 were longer and fit better! Is there a measurement for the length of the arm? The shorter arm and bigger curve at the end of the arm on the 2140 sat ontop of my ear, instead of falling behind it, tilting the glasses forward. The 2132 though, was long enough, and the arm was a little straighter at the end (not such a steep curve down) that it sat behind the ear nicer.
How can I look for 2140's with the arms of the 2132? (or longer arms in general?) Is there any indication of this?
