How to fit swimming goggles

How to fit swimming goggles

Swim goggles should feel comfortable while always preventing water from leaking into the eye cups. The proper fitting of swim goggles is an individualized process, simply because the facial shape and head size of every swimmer is different, according to guidelines issued by the Derby Phoenix Swimming Club of the United Kingdom. Before purchasing a new pair of goggles, first test their fit and comfort level.

Fitting Guidelines

To test the fit of a pair of goggles, lean all the way forward with your face toward the floor, and press the goggles over your eyes to form a seal. Even without the straps on, the goggles should remain in place for a minimum of several seconds, preferably longer. Goggles that do not remain in place are a poor fit. According to the professional guidelines of the Derby Phoenix Swimming Club, well-fitting goggles will completely seal out water without having to overly tighten the strap. If goggle straps must be tightened so far that they cause pain or discomfort, they are not a good fit, asserts the Institute of Food and Agricultural Sciences at the University of Florida. Some goggles also offer an adjustable nose piece. Avoid overcompensating for poor-fitting goggles by stretching the nose piece to its maximum length. This will greatly increase the likelihood of leaking or breakage.

Preventing Loose Goggles

Dave Tanner of the Counsilman Center for the Science of Swimming notes that it’s important to try a variety of goggle brands and models, because — like the faces of swimmers — each one is different. Over time, the watertight seal of a pair of goggles may be worn down by the chemical effects of chlorine. Keep goggles in tip-top shape for as long as possible by rinsing them in clean, nonchlorinated water after every swim. Sometimes, a particular diving or swim technique or even a facial expression may cause goggles to lose their seal and pop off the face. If infrequent, this is usually normal and not a sign of permanently ill-fitting goggles.

Risk of Tight Goggles

Poorly fitted goggles can cause more than just annoyance to the swimmer. Research by John C. O’Brien, Jr., M.D., published in 2004 in the Baylor University Medical Center “Proceedings” journal found that goggles are sometimes to blame for what is known as swimmer’s headache, caused by too-tight straps that aggravate nerve bundles in the face and head. O’Brien recommends that swimmers not only experiment with placing goggles until they find a comfortable position, but also that they place goggles on the face in slightly different locations to prevent one area from undergoing continued nerve pressure. The research noted that swimmers can be fit with goggles made of softer rubber.

Other Concerns

In some instances, goggles that don’t fit well have been known to cause ocular damage, according to research published in the “Postgraduate Medical Journal.” The journal article mentions a rare case of double vision caused by badly fitted goggles, and it references additional cases of eye trauma, bruising and contact rashes in which goggles were also the culprit. Primary researcher Gus S. Plaut suggests that, to be worn properly, swimming eyewear requires adequate cushioning around the eye, a flexible frame that includes shatterproof materials, and adjustable straps that allow for a custom fit.

Looking good and seeing well is just part of it, making sure your goggles or masks fit well is also important. Here are our tips for getting the best pair for you.

How can I tell if goggles will fit without using them in water?

For a good fit, your goggles should sit comfortably on the bridge of your nose and create a seal all the way around your eyes without any gaps.

You could use a mirror to check the seal as it can be difficult to spot when you are wearing them, or ask a friend. Also to check the fit of your goggles before going swimming, lean forward, so your face is facing down towards the floor. Press the eye seals into your eye sockets and let go – they should stay in place if they are a good fit. You can make adjustments to the nosepiece and spread of the eyepiece, but if the goggles don’t hold without the strap, at least for a few seconds, they probably will need a very tight strap to keep the water out.

Avoid making a bad fitting pair of goggles fit by over tightening the head strap. Although this may seem to work, you risk having sore eye sockets after a swim, so ideally you want a pair that keep the water out with only a low tension in the strap.

Then it is up to you to choose the swimming goggles you like the best.

All our goggles will protect your eyes from water and help you to see where you are going. This means you can focus on looking great and having the confidence to get the most from your time in the water.

How can I tell if a diving mask will fit without using them in water?

Checking a diving mask will make a good seal is easy.

Move the head strap to one side, place the mask onto your face and breathe in through your nose. Still breathing in through your nose, if you take your hands away the mask should stay in place, even if you pull gently on it.

Then when you breathe out through your nose the mask will fall away.

If you feel any breeze around the edge of the mask or it does not stay in place it may not be the right one for you. Do not dismiss it straight away though, try the process again, just in case you did not have the silicone skirt seated on your face correctly.

If you have a beard or moustache, getting a complete seal will be almost impossible.

Remember, you should not have to over tighten the head strap to make it fit and when you dive the pressure will push the mask onto your face slightly more.

The swimming goggles should be just tight enough to form a good seal or suction around the eyes to prevent water from getting into the goggles while still being comfortable. However, to ensure you do not deprive your eyes of oxygen for prolonged periods of time, you should remove the goggles at least once every hour

When someone goes shopping for a pair of swimming goggles, one of the most common questions is about the fit of the goggles. Many people are unsure of just how tight the swimming goggles should be. Of course, the swimming goggles need to be tight enough so that they do not fall off when someone dives in the water. Losing the goggles in the water could result in them sinking to the bottom, making them hard to retrieve. On the other hand, swimming goggles that are too tight can unnecessarily restrict the face and give someone a headache. There is a nice middle ground that will allow the swimming goggles to work effectively while still being comfortable for the user.

The Goggles Should Form a Good Seal

The easiest way to answer this question is that the swimming goggles should be tight enough to form a firm seal without giving someone a headache. While someone might be concerned about the “goggle rings” that form around the eyes, these will fade with time. The good news is that a fresh pair of swimming goggles does not need to be very tight to ensure that the seal is formed. Over time, the suction strength of the seal may start to wear off and people may need to tighten the goggles. Excessively tightening the swimming goggles could give someone a headache and might unnecessarily constrict the eyes. Make sure that the goggles have a tight seal and will stay on the head when someone dives in the water. Try to place the strap just below the crown on the back of the head to prevent them from flying off. It might also be helpful to place the swimming goggles underneath a swim cap so ensure that they stay in place.

The Importance of Finding the Correct Fit

There are several reasons why someone needs to make sure that the swimming goggles fit correctly. The first reason is for convenience. If the swimming goggles do not fit properly, someone may end up spending their entire swim trying to reapply the goggles. Water might also start to enter the swimming goggles, making it hard to see and burning the eyes. On the other hand, a pair of swimming goggles that is too tight can also be annoying. The constriction around the head could give someone a tension headache, aggravating their swim and making them uncomfortable. Swimming goggles that fit properly should be comfortable and allow someone to see well underwater without having to constantly adjust the strap or the lenses. Our buyers guide can help you to determine the right pair of swimming goggles and you can find a how to guide for finding/measuring your PD here.

Finding the Correct Fit for a Pair of Swimming Goggles

The first step in finding the right pair of swimming goggles is to think about what they are going to be used for. Goggles are made for all types of uses. This includes competitive swimming, snorkeling, scuba diving, and recreational swimming. This is one of the first ways to break down the various options. After this, the packaging on the goggles should make it easy to go from there. Goggles often have recommended age ranges on them that can help someone decide. After this, it is just a matter of deciding on the personal preference. If the goggles don’t seem to fit quite right, replacing the plastic strap with a bungee cord can be a helpful solution.

Ensuring the Goggles Have the Right Fit

It is vital for everyone to make sure that the goggles fit well before making an investment. Fortunately, the strap on the swimming goggles is typically very easy to adjust and can be made to fit almost any face. Furthermore, many people will elect to replace the plastic strap on their pair of swimming goggles with a bungee cord. This bungee cord is often easier to adjust and will allow the goggles to work for almost anyone. Try to ensure that the goggles fit well before swimming and remember to vent them regularly to allow the eyes to breathe properly.

How to fit swimming gogglesBy Mark Gangloff (2-time Olympian & 2004 gold medalist)

Selecting goggles can be hard. SwimOutlet.com offers its customers seven pages of goggles from which to choose, so there is no lack of options.

Having a variety of choices is great, but a wide selection can also be overwhelming. To help you navigate the waters (pun intended!), I have listed a few things to keep in mind as you shop for your next pair of goggles.

But first, a word on personal preference: above all, goggles are an individual preference. Whatever is right for you is right for you. Just like, whatever is right for me is right for me. Now, where it might get tricky is when whatever is right for me is wrong for you. So, trust yourself and your opinion.

However, here are some key factors worth considering when shopping for your next pair of goggles:

Goggle Size

Goggles come in all shapes and sizes. Generally, I like to classify goggles as “small” and “large.” These classifications reflect both socket size and lens size.

  • Socket size indicates the size of the goggle lens. Some goggles are what I consider “small socket.” Some swimmers do not prefer small socket goggles (e.g., Swedish goggles) because they can be harsh on the orbital bone. On the other hand, “large socket” goggles, because they don’t fit into your eye socket, rely on some kind of suction device (e.g., foam, rubber, etc.). My personal preference is a “small socket” goggle because the “large socket” goggles can feel a bit bulky. But, I encourage you to try both small and large socket goggles before making a final decision.
  • Lens size is the size of the lens through which the swimmer sees. A larger lens allows the swimmer to see more; larger lenses allow for a wide-angle view or even “natural” vision. By contrast, small lenses allow the swimmer to “put the blinders on” and, perhaps, focus on their race by limiting their field of vision.

Profile

The goggle’s profile is how far the goggle sticks out from the swimmer’s face. Goggle profile can be classified as “low” and “high.” Your goggle’s profile doesn’t just affect what the goggles look like, but can influence the functionality of the goggles. For instance, I have noticed that when I wear a high profile goggle (i.e., they stick out from my face), they are more likely to leak and/or fall off upon entry into the water during a start. However, remember, we aren’t always diving. Thus, you could chose different profiles for different purposes (i.e., race vs. training).

Assembly

Assembly is the amount of assembly required to make the new goggles (as they arrive in their packaging) functional. Some goggles arrive in your mailbox (and in their packaging) 100% assembled and ready to wear. Other goggles may require threading the straps through the goggles. Others, yet, even require you to string your own nose piece (i.e., the middle piece between the lenses). Though some might be a little intimidated stringing their first nosepiece, easy-to-follow instructions make the assembly of the goggles manageable for almost every swimmer. However, younger swimmers may need some help from a parent, friend, or coach as they assemble their goggles.

Style

Coco Chanel once said. Oh, who am I kidding? I have no idea what Coco Chanel ever said. I do know, however, that a lot can be said by wearing a pair of goggles. Goggles, though functional, are also accessories that can express who you are. Growing up I felt “fastest” in my mirrored Swedish goggles. It showed my competitors that I meant business.

My sister, on the other hand, felt her “fastest” when she wore goggles that donned reptile holograms. Either way, our goggles were a simple way to express our race personalities. And, I believe, influenced the way we raced. However, while style, to some degree, matters, sizing always trumps style.

Summary

So when browsing goggles for yourself or the swimmer in your life, I find it helps to ask a few questions:

  • What is most comfortable?
  • How much do I (or your swimmer) need to see to feel comfortable in practice or a race?
  • Will I (or your swimmer) wear these goggles to race or to train?
  • How much assembly can I (or your swimmer) tolerate?
  • Am I (or your swimmer) bold or do I (or your swimmer) prefer a classic look?

The answers to these questions will help you in selecting the perfect goggles. At bottom I offer simple chart of aspects that were important to me of a small sample of goggles offered by SwimOutlet.com. This chart describes each pair of goggles according to my main criteria I’ve discussed above.

I hope that I have given everyone a better perspective from which to choose your next pair of goggles. For me as a professional swimmer, having my racing goggles completely secure when entering the water is a #1 priority, so my default is always to use a low-profile goggle. It is not absolute that everyone uses a low-profile goggle but in elite racing profile becomes much more important. Another option may be to have a higher-profile goggle for practice and a lower-profile goggle for meets. It is up to you!

I would like to end this guide with a few highlights from the list of goggles I tested. I am a long-time user of a low-profile goggles, but some of the pairs from above gave me an experience that was different from previous experiences. I have used large socket goggles (great view) that have high profiles (potential to leak during entry) but what was new for me was the large socket goggles (great view) that had a low profile (less likely to leak during entry), which gave me the best of both worlds. I think that adidas, FINIS, and Dolfin have provided something a little different that is worth a try. I also like using the Arena Cobra, although the field of view is slightly less because the socket and lens size are smaller. Overall the Arena Cobra is a very good goggle; plus they give you a nice case to carry the goggle in.

How to fit swimming goggles

To ensure that your session goes swimmingly, your goggles must be used properly, i.e. fitted and adjusted in the best possible way.

Decathlon

1. Swimming Goggles – Usage

To ensure that your session goes swimmingly, your goggles must be used properly, i.e. fitted and adjusted in the best possible way.

To help you with this, Nabaiji is here to give you its top tips on how to use your swimming goggles, for a session without any disruptions!

2. Adjusting Your Swimming Goggles

For optimal swimming comfort, it is important to adjust your swimming goggles to fit your face shape and based on how they feel. The nose bridge and adjustable straps allow the lenses to create a suction effect and not let any water seep in as you swim.

After adjusting, place your goggles on your face and position the head strap at an angle of approximately 45° from the top of your head. This will prevent the goggles from moving during your session.

Important: do not overtighten the head strap as this can cause discomfort and leave marks around your eyes.

If, however, your swimming goggles continue to do as they please, here is a simple trick used by competitive swimmers:

Put on your first cap and your goggles as usual, then add a second cap that will hold the head strap of the swimming goggles in place. It's as simple as that!

3. Fogging on Swimming Goggles

A recurring problem for any swimmer, fogging on the lenses of swimming goggles can be uncomfortable or even restrictive in some cases.

But how to solve this problem?

The first thing NOT to do is rub your lenses, whether with your fingers, a cloth or anything else. This would only make things worse, since you would deteriorate the thin film of anti-fog treatment present on Nabaiji swimming goggles. Do not fall into this vicious foggy circle!

If your session becomes tiresome due to the appearance of fog on your swimming goggles, simply take them off and dip them in the water. In doing so, you will get rid of that annoying fog without damaging your swimming goggles.

Please note: Even when impeccably used, maintained and stored, swimming goggles wear out and lose their effectiveness. So do not blame yourself unnecessarily. And do not hesitate to replace them as needed, so that your enjoyment of swimming does not suffer!

Also check out our techniques and tricks that will enable you to care for and store your swimming goggles optimally.

In order to ensure an effective fit you will need to adjust the head strap and nose-bridge strap before wearing your goggles in the water. This easy guide will assist you in fitting and removing your swimming goggles.

STEP 1 – Adjust the head strap

The head strap wraps around the back of your head holding the goggles in place. The strap is normally quite stretchy for comfort and ease of use. However, while the strap is stretchy, don’t fall into the trap of pulling the strap tighter believing that it will stretch a little once the goggles are on your head. Making the strap tighter does not necessarily mean that it will give you a better fit as this may cause discomfort and marking around the eyes, and we all know this is not the most attractive look! The correct adjustment can be obtained by tensioning the head strap until a comfortable firm but comfortable fit is achieved.

STEP 2 – Adjust the nose bridge

The nose bridge allows for support between the goggle eye cups. To avoid water intake, ensure you select the correct nose bridge for both comfort and a water tight fit. Most swimming goggles come with an adjustable nose bridge. Sometimes this is simply an elastic strap across the nose which can be easily tightened by pulling each side. Other nose bridges will require you to actually thread a small piece of rope through the eyelets in between the eye cups. Another type of nose bridge is the clip in and clip out pieces. These normally come in three standard sizes and are easy to clip in and out.

The nose bridge should fit comfortably over the bridge of your nose. If you have a small/narrow nose, you may need to tighten the nose bridge. Similarly, if you have a large/wide nose you may need to loosen the nose bridge.

If the nose bridge is too tight you will be able to feel the eye cups of the goggles pulling in towards the centre. This means the outside of each eye cup is likely to lift off your face allowing water to seep in. Similarly, if the nose bridge is too loose you will able to feel the eye cups of the goggles pulling outwards. This means the inside of each eye cup is likely to lift off your face allowing water to seep in.

A good test to use when trying to work out the size of the nose bridge is to place the eye cups on your eyes and if they provide good suction, even for a moment you know you have the nose bridge adjusted to the correct size.

The eye cups of your goggles should sit comfortably around your eyes.

STEP 3 – Putting your goggles on

  1. Place your thumbs under the head straps so that your left thumb is under the left side, the right thumb is under the right and your remaining finger and palm are holding the eye cups. Hold your goggles out in front of your face so you can see the inside of the eye cups.
  2. Place the eye cups on your eyes and press the cups into your eyes gently.
  3. Slowly slide your thumbs around the head strap whilst placing the strap over your head. It should wraps comfortably around your head.

STEP 4 – Clearing water from your goggles

While the purpose of goggles is to keep water out, it is inevitable that at some stage a small amount of water may seep in. To clear water or fog from your goggles, take a firm grip on the eye cup and tilt the lower edge of the eye cup slightly away from the face. Once you have cleared the water or fog, you can then place the cups back onto your eyes.

Never pull eye cups away from face as they may spring back and cause damage.

STEP 5 – Removing your goggles

To remove your goggles, place your thumbs under head strap on each side of your head. Slide your thumbs under the straps and lift the strap from the behind your head to the front. They eye cups should simply pop off your face at this point in time.

How to fit swimming goggles

So you’ve decided you need a pair of swimming goggles, but now you’re faced with a wealth of options – men’s goggles, women’s goggles, kids’ goggles, polarised goggles, techy-looking goggles….help! Don’t panic, we’ll cover everything you need to know here.

How to fit swimming goggles

How do I choose the right pair of goggles?

If you’re feeling bamboozled by the choice of goggles, don’t panic. At Speedo we’ve broken our goggles down into categories to help make choosing your goggles easy.

As a starting point, it’s useful to have in mind what you need your goggles for. For example, are they for fitness swimming, competitions or training, or maybe just for holidays? Are you looking for an open water swimming goggle? Start using our Goggle Selector Tool to find the right one for you.

Which goggle will suit my face shape?

At Speedo we’ve done extensive research into face shapes and have used global head-scanning data to create the pioneering IQfit™ technology found in some of our goggle styles. To ensure a secure fit, our Women’s Goggles have been designed specifically to fit the smaller contours of female faces. Similarly, our Kids’ Goggles have been put together specially with infant and junior face shapes in mind.

How do I know if a pair of goggles fits properly?

Try on a few pairs to determine the fit that suits you best. The key areas to focus on are around the eye socket and across the nose – some goggles have adjustable or interchangeable nose bridges to allow a more bespoke fit, whereas others are made from softer materials that adapts to the shape of your face. Gently hold the goggles to your eyes without the strap, if you experience a brief level of suction they will offer a good fit. With the best fitting goggles you will feel a slight suction and a comfortable, even pressure around your eye.

Which colour goggle lens is right for me?

From polarised swimming goggles to goggles with mirrored lenses, we offer a range of goggle lens types to suit a variety of environments and light conditions. But which is right for you? Our Goggle Lens Types article explains in depth, but here’s a brief overview:

Polarised lenses – offer superior glare protection and are designed for high-level light and sunny conditions. Ideal for open water swimming, triathlons and bright indoor pools.

Mirrored lenses – reduce brightness and offer glare protection. Ideal for indoor swim races and some outdoor swimming conditions.

Clear lenses – designed to provide maximum visibility in low-light conditions. Suitable for both indoor and outdoor swimming.

Blue lenses – good all-round lens option providing reduced glare in bright conditions. Suitable for both indoor and outdoor swimming.

I wear glasses – do you offer prescription swimming goggles?

Absolutely. We have a great range of Prescription Swimming Goggles at Speedo, across a variety of dioptre options, from -1.5 to -8.0. We also have a ‘build-your-own’ prescription goggle, the Pulse Optical Lens Prescription Goggle Kit (available in 0 to -8.0 dioptres), which allows you to change lenses and cater for any differences in prescription for each eye.

Why not try one of our best-selling prescription goggles, the Speedo Mariner Optical Goggle?

How do I put my goggles on properly?

We suggest starting by holding the lenses snug to your eye sockets until they’re positioned correctly. Hold in place with one hand. Next, pull the goggle strap into place, and re-adjust the lens position if necessary. The best fit will give you a comfortable even pressure around your eye and a slight suction.

My goggles keep fogging up – why?

The scientific answer is that goggles fog when warm air meets the colder-than-air lenses, causing condensation. However, all Speedo swimming goggles include anti-fog technology to prevent fogging, either through an anti-fog coating or technology impregnated during the goggle’s construction. It’s important not to rub the insides of your lenses as this will wipe away the anti-fog coating. The age of your goggles can also be a factor.

For more information, read our article about how we prevent Speedo goggles fogging up: Speedo Anti-Fog: How We Prevent Goggles Steaming Up.

How should I look after my goggles?

Looking after your goggles properly will help you extend their life. Our top Speedo tips for looking after your goggles are:

Use the goggle pouch they came with. This will help prevent scratches and other damage that can occur when they’re loose in your swim bag.

Rinse gently after use with lukewarm water. Chemicals and chlorine can affect the life of your goggles. However, DO NOT use soap or detergent to clean your goggles as this can damage them and affect the anti-fog coating.

Don’t touch or rub the goggle lenses. Rubbing and touching can scratch the goggles and remove the anti-fog coating, affecting your vision in the pool.

Leave goggles to air-dry after rinsing. Lay your goggles flat to air-dry and never leave them wet in your kit bag, as this can encourage bacteria and mould.

Keep goggles out of the sun when not in use. UV light can affect the life of your goggles. When you’re not wearing them, pop them out of the sun. They’ll last longer!

Where can I buy swimming goggles from?

You can browse our Men’s, Women’s and Kids’ Goggles online at the Speedo Store, or visit one of our stores nationwide.

With such a range of brands and features, choosing a pair of goggles is as difficult as choosing a new phone or pair of shoes.

And while the cost is (usually) incomparable to the phones or shoes, most regular swimmers know the immense frustration of a dodgy pair of goggles, needing to be adjusted and fiddled with at every other turn.

So before you dive in and pick the most expensive or the most aesthetic pair, take a minute to read our quick guide and work out what you really want from your goggles.

Choosing the right swimming goggles

There are three essential aspects that you need to address when choosing the right swimming goggles:

  1. That they fit (don’t let in water)
  2. That they’re comfy (don’t chafe over the nose or apply too much pressure on the eye sockets)
  3. That they’re clear (they don’t fog up or scratch).

1. The Fit

This is decided by the seal of the goggles (not the strap). Always try your goggles on before you buy and if you’re shopping online, check whether the retailer will offer a full refund if they do not fit.

The most common style of goggles are oval-shaped with a silicone gasket seal. When you try them on, the seal should provide a split second of suction – anything less and they will let in water, anything more and they are unnecessarily tight and applying too much pressure.

Be careful to check the goggles are not too wide either as they may leak water if they stretch too wide around the corners of your eyes.

Competition styles of goggles are a much sleeker design to minimise drag through the water. They tend to be less adjustable so there is even more reason to find the right fit before you buy them.

‘Swedish’ goggles are a popular example of a competitive style which have no gasket seal and sit on the eye socket.

A final option is swimming masks which offer a wide range of vision because of their size – these are best suited to children or people swimming in open water.

2. The Comfort

Your goggles might seal perfectly around your eyes but a lack of comfort over the nose can be hugely irritating.

Many goggles have adjustable nosepieces but if yours is too tight or rubbing against the bridge of your nose, try another pair on.

The strap has little to do with the seal of your goggles but is imperative for holding them in place. Goggles worn too tight will merely add pressure to the sensitive parts of the eye.

Many goggles now have split straps which are better at holding them in place – look for a split strap if you are likely to be swimming fast or turning quickly in the water.

3. The Sight

Nearly all goggles now come with an anti-fog coating and UV protection. If they don’t, you shouldn’t be paying as much for them.

The majority of manufacturers will also produce prescription goggles.

The final thing to consider is the colour of the lens. The six most common are described below:
