When picking out sunnies and glasses that suit your face, it’s all about the fit. Other than face shape, it’s also QUAY to figure out where your nose bridge is so that your frames sit comfortably on your face without slipping and sliding. While many specs feature a standard fit, you may find a low bridge style preferable. Here are all the deets on low bridge fit glasses and the best QUAY low bridge fit styles to add to your eyewear wardrobe.
WHAT ARE LOW BRIDGE FIT GLASSES?
Low Bridge Face vs. High Bridge Face
Just as we have collections for square, round, oval, triangle, heart, and smaller faces, we also have one for those with low nose bridges. But what’s the difference between a low bridge and a high bridge face anyway? To break it down, it’s all about where your nose is. On a face with a low bridge, the nose sits in line with or below the pupils. In a high bridge face, the nose sits higher on the face. As you may have already guessed, low bridge fit glasses are suited for those with lower nose bridges — they're also great for those with higher cheekbones.
They're sometimes called “Asian glasses” because many people of Asian heritage find that these specs comfortably complement their features, which may include a low nose bridge. Of course, you don’t have to be of Asian descent to find low bridge specs just right for your face.
HOW DO I KNOW IF LOW BRIDGE GLASSES ARE RIGHT FOR ME?
WHAT’S THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN LOW BRIDGE FIT GLASSES AND STANDARD FIT GLASSES?
Standard fit glasses are, generally speaking, more geared towards those with higher nose bridges. They tend to have fixed nose pieces and straight temple arms, sitting on the face higher and coming in narrower widths. If you’ve got a low nose bridge, low bridge fit glasses will help you keep your specs on without fuss thanks to their design. This means no struggling with lenses flush against your cheekbones or your glasses moving down. Some features to look for in low bridge fit glasses include:
Big or high nose pads to keep your frames comfortably balanced on your nose
Adjustable nose pads so that your frames stay on just right
Curved temples that provide extra stability and room
Slightly tilted frames that push up and away from cheekbones
