    I initially purchased these frames as regular eyeglasses, but the lenses were so super huge that I just knew I had to make them sunglasses. The shape is so flattering to my face; they emphasize my cheekbones and make me feel really feminine. I have a big head and these frames fit comfortably...granted, they did need minor adjusting from my local [...]. I'm so happy I was able to get my hands on these frames...I desperately needed prescription sunglasses.

    Cute, but HUGE

    I ordered these because they were cute and matched the width & arm length measurements of my previous glasses, which fit me well. I have a medium-large size head.

    I ordered these because they were cute and matched the width & arm length measurements of my previous glasses, which fit me well. I have a medium-large size head.

    Much to my dismay, when they arrived, they were HUGE on my face somehow. (Like, so huge that you could see the sides of my head through the lenses, distorted through the prescription so it just looked really funny.) I was really bummed that I had to return them because they were super-cute otherwise.

    When ordering these, bear in mind that the lenses are much MUCH taller than normal lenses. Double check the measurements and probably pass on these frames if you have a small head/face ...

        Comments about Derek Cardigan 7005 Black:

        I purchased these about 3 years ago when Coastal offered the first pair free. I had no idea I would love these glasses so much. I was nervous that the frames would be too big, but they actually fit the size and shape of my face really well. A few months ago the arm to the frames just fell off when I picked them up, not sure how that happened, it couldn't be screwed back on so I just super glued it and they've been great ever since. The only downside is that they have faded on the sides and it's pretty noticeable since they're black. But I guess that's to be expected after all these years. I'd definitely purchase another pair at full price.

            I love these glasses so much. This is my second pair of Derek Cardigan cat eyes. I love them so much, I have just ordered them in purple and ordered the brown/aqua ones as sunglasses. I get so many compliments on these. They are just on the verge of being over the top but they work great for casual or dressy occasions. I'm so glad I found these. They are my favorite glasses ever.

                I'm absolutely OBSESSED with coastal.com and the Derek Cardigan line. I saw these glasses in the Brown Tortoiseshell and fell in love. Opening a box from Coastal is like opening a present. These gorgeous frames literally go with everything and I get compliments on these glasses each and every day I wear them.

                They're a larger frame, so be wary of that when you buy them. If oversized frames are your thing, these are PERFECT!

                  Out of my 20 year career of wearing glasses, these are by far my most favourite pair I've ever owned. This actually my second pair of black 7005's and I've got the brown as well. I think I have a fairly round face and these specs suit it well. I get compliments on these glasses nearly everyday. They're sturdy, thick frames and they hold up well. Hopefully Derek Cardigan keeps making these frames because I'm certain that these are "the ones" for me.

                      Out of all of my frames, this pair is my all time favorite. Traditional cat-eye frames are usually made for small faces...which I do not have. Nice and large, this frame compliments any face shape.

                            I am in love with these glasses. They are pretty big but thats the best part of this frame. I find that they feel dirty at times because the lenses are big however thats ok I dont mind cleaning them. I ordered mine as prescription glasses even though they would make fun sunglasses. I do recommend this frame because it goes with just about any outfit.

                                I've had these for about a week now and I enjoy them a lot. I was scared to get these at first because online they look quite big, but they're actually not that large in person. The only thing is that they are a little tight on my temples, but nothing too bad. They don't leave marks or anything. I'd give them a go!

                                  For someone with a wide face, I've always had a hard time finding women's glasses that fit my face without cutting off the blood circulation to my temples. Honestly, my face makes most of the women's selection of glasses look like toddler glasses. Luckily, with a headroom measurement ( temple to temple) of 132mm, these glasses are at least wide enough for my face. However, they may run large for most of humanity.
                                  Joking aside, it took me a while to get used to seeing these things on my face-they are definitely Bold (with a capital) and almost mask-like. But the nice thing about them is they not outrageous so they can be worn casually. My main gripe with these glasses is the angling of the frame and temple and the height of the lenses makes them sit on my cheeks when I smile. This makes them a bit uncomfortable. Otherwise, I'm relatively happy with my purchase.
