If you wear contacts do you feel less sexy when you have to wear your glasses?

Silly question I know!

I scratched my eye last night in my sleep (yeah, talented right?) and have to wear my glasses for the next few days.

I feel gross and not sexy at all, like suddenly my hair looks bad, my clothes look bad. it's weird but I don't feel sexy in glasses!

Anyone else?

  • My glasses are at least ten years old and I try not to wear them too much. I'm like you. I feel gross when I wear them. I'm super blind so I have to wear something.

  • I did. But I just got new glasses and I really love them.

  • I think I look smart in my glasses. I just don't like wearing them because of the paralax.

  • Glad it isn't just me. My glasses are 5+ years old and still the same prescription as my contacts.. I just feel less sexy in glasses period

  • No, I go for the "sexy librarian" look when I have my glasses on. Definitely need to go a little heavier on the eye makeup so my eyes still stand out, but it's a nice change. Get some new frames! There are some great ones out there, it's just finding the right frame for your face.

  • I like contacts better because of the different colors you can wear.glasses can look nice if the color and fit is right for the face shape.
