I have a really small nose so I'm very conscious of the bridge measurements when ordering glasses. The measurement listed was the largest that I would ever get but is still manageable. Unfortunately, with the length of the lenses, they just kept sliding down my nose and sitting on my cheeks. They're so adorable but they're just not meant for someone with a small nose.

Comments about Derek Cardigan 7005 Brown Tortoiseshell:

I adore these glasses. They are such a unique size, shape, and style - great cat eye glasses are hard to find. They are HUGE for most people but I have a big head and they actually are wide enough to cover my eye area from temple to temple (nothing makes my big head look bigger than glasses that are too narrow). They're big and fabulous.

The lesnses do seem to scratch easily. I have worn glasses for 20 years, since I was a child, and I have never had scratched lenses except from serious trauma. However, over the last few months I have noticed two small scratches come out of nowhere (at least, I don't remember any event big enough to cause a scratch happening). It might be because they're so big - I'm just not used to having such large glasses on?

The frames, however, have held up amazingly well. They fit perfectly after one quick adjustment a local glasses store (to widen the temples) and are still brilliantly shiny and unscratched. The color has help up perfecly - with some tortoiseshell glasses, I've noticed that skin products and perspiration slowly bleached the temples and ear pieces of the glasses. Not these! They look nearly new.

They're a little heavy, but comfortably so. They don't leave dents on my nose like some heavy glasses, but they aren't so light that they're always becoming malpositioned.

I bought these in tortoiseshell but I am planning to buy these in black as well!

      I adore these glasses! Just a little retro, just a little geeky and a whole lot of style - right down to the "divide" and "multiply" decor on the frames. Perfect!!

        I love these glasses! They are so fancy and make me look professional. I generally wear them to interviews and when I'm feeling like dressing up. I get a lot of compliment when I have them one. Perfect cat-eye glasses that are large be not too large for my face.

              I love these glasses and I get complimented on them daily! The are slightly heavier than your normal glasses, so once in awhile they will slide down the bridge of my nose if Im looking straight down. They are super durable though! (Ive dropped them about 4 times so far, and no scratches or dents!) I really recommend them if you are looking for a cute, quirky pair.

                    These glasses are fun to wear! I feel like I can put these on for a little pizzazz when I don't really feel or have anything to give me that oomph for the day. I have gotten compliments on them wherever I go and get asked where and who makes them.

                    The only thing that bothered me was the strength, but that's due to my doctor strengthening my prescription. And don't really understand why there are mathematical signs(plus,negative multiplication, division, etc)on the glasses.

                    Overall, I LOVE them and will be purchasing more from D.C.
