No matter how many pairs and styles you try, your glasses always seem to slide down your nose. You're constantly adjusting them, but they just don't feel right on your face. If this experience sounds familiar, you may need a different fit. Low bridge fit glasses are often the ideal solution for ill-fitting frames. These eyeglasses are specially designed to suit those with low nose bridges.
To find out if low bridge glasses are the secret answer to your frame troubles, learn more about their features and benefits below.
WHAT ARE LOW BRIDGE FIT EYEGLASSES?
Low bridge glasses are crafted to fit a wide face, high cheekbones, and a low nose bridge that sits even with or below your pupils. At JINS, we carry a dedicated selection of high-quality low bridge frames to help you find your match. Here's what makes them different.
Bigger Nose Pads
The most common complaint about standard frames is that they're always slipping. For some, they also tend to pinch. This generally happens because the nose pads aren't sitting where they're supposed to be—on either side of the nose between the eyes. Instead, they're resting on top of the slope.
Larger nose pads solve this problem because their surface area is greater, giving your glasses more support to sit comfortably. This should minimize slippage and tension without adding weight.
Alternatively, you might find better comfort and flexibility with adjustable nose pads. These allow you to twist and angle the pads to better accommodate the unique shape of your nose.
Poorly fitting frames might touch your cheeks or move when you smile, talk, and walk. With a low bridge fit, the lenses are tilted slightly forward and away from the cheekbones to increase comfort.
The temples, or arms of glasses frames, should sit securely on top of your ears without pinching. They should also remain in place when you turn your face down and shake your head. If you have a round or wide face, however, standard-fit glasses might squeeze the sides of your head. The temples on low bridge frames have a subtle outward curve to give you extra space for a more comfortable fit.
WHAT GLASSES SHOULD I GET FOR MY FACE SHAPE?
Getting the right frames can transform the way your glasses feel, and it all comes down to the perfect pairing of fit and style. But how do you narrow down your choices?
There are many shapes to choose from, including rectangular, oval, cat-eye, and aviator frames. The decision is ultimately up to your personal taste. However, some frames flatter certain face shapes and features better than others. Find your face shape below, then follow the recommendations to select your perfect pair.
Curved frames add balance and soften your angles. Great examples include the retro cat-eye Classic Bold 174, the artist-inspired round Classic Bold 169, or the oval-shaped JINS Design Project X Ronan&Erwan Bouroullec Sugata O.
With an oval face, just about any frame shape will look good on you. Even so, the cool aviator-style Airframe Slim 246, rectangular MCF-18A-053, and Wellington Airframe Matte Duo 699 are particularly flattering.
Large, bold frames balance out the soft features of a round face and draw attention to the eyes. Try the Wellington-style Classic Bold 178, the minimalist square and oversized LCF-22S-043, or the rectangular JINS Design Project X Jasper Morrison Wellington.
People with heart-shaped faces typically want frames wider than their foreheads. The Classic Bold 174 cat-eye frames suggested for square faces will likewise suit you well. Our rectangular Classic Oversized 240 would also make a great fit.
The styles you love are available in multiple colors with flexible lens options, including blue-light protection, tinting, and sun protection, so you get a truly customized pair of JINS glasses.
