Metal vs. Plastic: Which Women's Eyeglasses Material is Right for You?

Posted on September 11 2015

When you start shopping for women's eyeglasses, once of the first decisions you'll need to make is whether you want metal or plastic frames. Both have their advantages--and disadvantages--and you'll need to decide which is right for you. Keep some of these factors in mind when you start to shop: 

  • Hate nosepieces? Go for plastic frames. Metal frames often utilize nose pieces to lift the frame up and off of your face. Some people love that feature while others don't like the feel of nose pieces pressed against their face all day. 
  • Subtle or bold? Think about your own personal style and what you want your eyeglasses to add to it. If you like bold style and want your eyeglasses to stand out, you'll want to check out plastic frames. They are bigger and bolder and typically offer more color selections. Metal or wire frames offer a more subdued or subtle look. 
  • How active is your life? If you often play sports and need a pair of women's eyeglasses that can double as sports eyewear, go for plastic. They can withstand hot and cold temperatures better and some materials, like nylon, are virtually unbreakable. 

Still can't decide? Buy one of each. Thanks to our low prices and free polycarbonate lenses, you can afford to purchase two pairs of women's eyeglasses and decide which one you like the best. You may find that you enjoy having two different styles to mix and match with your mood! Shop for your new frames in our store and place your order today.
