Need help with goggles Can't Post

Ok I have a factory driver full face helmet i bought used without the visor. I bought the visor i feel like my face is smashed up against the frame. I really want to use sunglasses but I cant get the damn thing on with sunglasses on and tighten the strap. I tried jumping without the strap because i was told they would stay on but they are a pair of curves and they keep sliding. Is there a way to get my helmet on with the sunglasses on. OR is there a pair of sunglasses that will fit tighter to my head so they wont slip> OR AM i just doing something wrong?

Sunglasses are not skydiving goggles, no matter what you see the 'cool' guys on the dz doing.

Factory divers are no good for sunglasses if you want the visor in. I'll occasionally pop my visor out and wear sunglasses for a high pull or something, but the helmet's tight enough that it just doesn't work. If you must wear sunglasses buy a full-face that can open. That said, though, I've never really felt the need for them and I jump in sunny Arizona.
