Glasses frames for a round face shape
Glasses are not only a visual aid, but also a fashionable accessory. So the question naturally arises: which glasses fit a round face shape?
In many people, the shape of the face is not elongated and oval, but rather rounded. The round face is characterised by a soft, rounded chin.
The round face tends to appear "too round" with round glasses. It is therefore a good idea to make the face form appear slightly narrower with glasses that are stretched more wide.

Seen from the front, the glasses should be about as wide as the face, i. e. they should end above the cheekbones to the right and left.
Wideness of glasses
But of course there are exceptions: Nickel glasses or glasses with round lenses should be slightly smaller. On the other hand, retro glasses such as butterfly glasses are often much wider. This special shape is not disturbing, but extravagant and fashionable.
Some people's eyes are relatively wide apart, others rather close together. With glasses you can "harmonize"the interpupillary distance.
Eye Distance - What glasses frames?
In general: the wider the distance between the eyes, the stronger the bridge between the eyes. And the closer the eyes are to each other, the stronger the outer part of the frame and the stronger the temples.
Full rim, half-rimmed or rimless glasses?
For eyewear design, the designers are very creative: eyeglasses can be made from very different materials (plastic, metal, horn, wood, etc.). The shapes are also very varied. There are basically three types of spectacles: full rim, half rim and rimless spectacles. Full rim frames are "classic" and "like real eyeglasses"because they are most reminiscent of the original frames. It was only through modern production processes that parts of the glass border could become thinner and thinner and eventually disappear completely. they are relatively heavy. The following points must be taken into account when choosing glasses:
- Full rim frames are heavier than the others. The pressure on the nose and behind the ears can disturb in the long run.
- Full rim frames are relatively stable because they completely surround the lens.
- At the transitions, where the glass sits in a groove of the frame, dust and dirt easily collects, which is relatively difficult to remove.
- Rimless eyeglasses are very light and inconspicuous.
- But rimless glasses are also relatively fragile and sensitive. At the nose bridge or the side bars can bend relatively easily.

Individual is better
Of course, no one has an average face. Of course individual is better. If you don't find yourself in one of the five cases: it doesn't matter. Familiarize yourself with the guidelines. For soft, round faces straight edges act harmoniously and give more firmness and dynamics. For angular, bony faces the situation is the oppisite: soft, rounded shapes gives more feminine harmony.
