I have worn glasses since I was 6, then I quit wearing them for many years and went to contacts-only because 1) I didn't want to look nerdy and 2) glasses were EXPENSIVE and I couldn't usually afford the thinner lenses, even with insurance. Now that I'm in my 30s, I am more concerned with eye health than looking fabulous all the time. I wanted to get some glasses from my eye doctor, but they were almost three times what these cost. I found Coastal, liked this pair, and decided to try it--I am SO glad I did! These arrived promptly and are very nice frames and lenses. I can't say enough good things about the color--a nice matte red metal frame with subtle reddish-brown earpieces. They flatter my coloring very nicely, and I really don't look that nerdy in these--shocking! My only complaint is that the vertical (up and down) width of these is slightly smaller than I would like--I can almost look over the top of these even when they're pushed all the way up on my nose. Other than that, I love them and plan to order more glasses from Coastal soon and gradually start wearing glasses more than my contacts. That's coming from a person who hasn't regularly worn glasses in over 15 years, so you know they've gotta be pretty good for me to say that!
Feels true to size
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
