Same thing with these other online eyeglass sites. Almost all cat eye shape.



This is cat eye:

Those are not attractive glasses for women, IMO. I know they're in fashion right now but I personally don't like them. Aside from that, almost every woman looks sexier in glasses if she gets the right ones. There are some plastic ones that look good on just about every woman but they're probably not "in style" right now so if you get them people will treat you like there's something wrong with you because you don't want to look just like everyone else.

I don't know if I'd call those cat eye. I mean, that might be what they're called but I'm not sure why. They look more owl-like to me.

I don't think that's true. Some people just look ugly in glasses. Or at least uglier than they look without glasses.

Well, I guess everything is relative. I don't even notice glasses on men. I like them on women because I guess maybe I have a fetish for it or something. But glasses are definitely getting uglier (the ones that are in right now don't appeal to me too much).

These ones are inoffensive (for plastic) and seem like they would look fine on just about anyone. Though the fit issue you mentioned might be a problem...

I got these a few years ago and like the shape a lot. So something similar in shape and size to this but translucent would be great. I'm using these right now actually because I bent the metal frame ones too far. They are too weak since my prescription has gotten worse (can't see my toenails when clipping them).

I like the rectangular shape, too. I don't understand why the cat eye shape is so popular. They're so large. My glasses are rectangular with a metallic, light purple frame. I don't wear them outside that often, but I'm picky about the frame.

Considering these ones. I love the color. Just wish the lens height wasn't so big. Found a couples pictures of people wearing them. I don't look like them at all but gives you an idea:

Those are not bad on her but they could be atrocious if they didn't blend with her face that well. I guess the fact that they're translucent helps a bit.

I don't recall. Not a whole lot, though. They're just your basic black wire frames; and last time I had to have my prescription changed, I just had them insert new lenses into my old frames.

I paid about $40, and this is only for lenses with glare protection. I got the cheapest frames in the shop for about $30 and a voucher from my workplace covered that. I don't see the point of buying expensive glasses because I will inevitably sit on them, drop them badly, or do something else to render them unusable.

I get compliments for these glasses, they have a translucent blue frame and large lenses. My ideal style, as demonstrated by Will Wiesenfeld, is this:




Yesterday, about 6 months from purchase, I opened the door on my way out, hit myself in the face and snapped the frame of the glasses on the side. Managed to superglue it, though, so hooray.

Around $400 which is depressing considering they don't look good on me..I don't have a good face for glasses. Most of them look way too big or the shape is wrong.

Yeah, I went to this one eyeglass store the other day. This place had a pretty big selection. Not the optometrist (he only has a small selection) where I got my prescription.

None of the glasses looked good on me. I checked out some of there glasses online before going. Even the ones I thought were cute online looked horrible on me.
Sucks. My face is just unsuitable for glasses.

Edit: oops. I already mentioned this before in this thread.

Yeah I tried on almost all of the glasses at the optometrist where they had a big selection, and spent hours online and nothing really looked right
