It's All About Face, About Shape, About Style:About Face:
Have you bought reading glasses before only to find that they do not flatter you in the way you expected? Save a lot of time, money and avoid disappointment when you match the right frame shape to your face shape. You'll be amazed how your glasses can compliment your looks!
Since your nose is the main resting point of your reading glasses besides your ears, the shape of your nose usually determines how your frame will fit you. Properly fitting reading glasses will rest comfortably on your nose without pinching or pulling.
A high narrow nose requires a frame with a narrow bridge (the frame part that rests on the nose). If you are considering plastic reading glasses where the bridge is fixed, look at bridge size as well as the angle of flare. A frame with a narrow bridge fits a narrow nose best because it keeps the frame from sliding down your nose and correctly positions the frame on your face. Metal frames with adjustable nose pads provide more flexibility in fit since the nose pads can be adjusted to fit the bridge of your nose.
A nose that is wide or flared requires reading glasses with a wide bridge for optimal fit and comfort. Adjustable nose pads or plastic frames designed for a wide nose will provide a comfortable fit that will also position the lenses properly for your best field of vision. Some people like to wear their reading glasses towards the tip of their nose so they can look over them to see in the distance. Many of Renee’s READERS styles are purposefully designed to fit comfortably if you should decide to wear your readers down your nose.
FRAME SIZE should be in scale with your face size and stature. Usually your reading glasses should extend to the widest part of your face, even slightly beyond. Some styles are meant to be oversized and some are meant to be worn smaller. It adds to the look!
FRAME SHAPE should contrast your face shape. A frame that is geometric or rectangular, with squared corners, will add definition to a fuller face and has a trendier look. Reading glasses with round edges will soften a more angular face shape. Simply decide if your face shape is angular or full, and then choose a frame shape that adds balance with contrast.
FRAME COLOR can be used to accentuate your best features. Rather than choose a frame color that goes with everything, consider a color that flatters you. Choose readers that accent your hair color, highlights your eyes or enhances your complexion or just brightens up your everyday look.When it comes to reading glasses, since most people find they need to have several pairs, you may also like to have a few different styles. Mixing it up can be fun and it can also be easy way to identify different pairs for different uses. One thing's for sure …finding the frame style that compliments you is the starting point to choosing reading glasses that really look good on you and you'll enjoy every time that you wear them!
