Frames for glasses? Tuesday I'm going to get new glasses and I am just wondering what you ladies think are the better material.

I've been wearing glasses for about 15 years. I prefer the plastic frames. They don't get bent out of shape as easily. They're lighter. They don't have those annoying nose pieces.

I prefer metal since isnt as clunky as plastic for my size frames.

I've always gone with metal.  But the plastic frames without the nose pieces don't seem to fit my face right.  Plus I like the metallic look.

i like my plastic frames that i have been getting the past few years. The ones i have now are Candies brand. I had metal most of my life and constantly had to have them saudered back together because they would wear apart. I have been wearing glasses since i was 6 yrs old. Im 29 now

I would say plastic only because the metal would bother my nose and ears lol

 i haven't found metal frames that are comfortable.  they always have those little nose pieces that dig into your face

i go with plastic ones
