THE PROS OF RIMLESS GLASSES

The right pair of eyewear enhances your appearance as well as your vision. Some people wear thick frames, but bold specs can weigh down your face or hide delicate features. That’s why many people prefer the timeless appeal of rimless glasses,

WHY DO PEOPLE LIKE WEARING RIMLESS GLASSES?

Think about how you felt when you first learned you needed glasses. Were you excited about experimenting with different frames, or did you feel a bit apprehensive? Many people are nervous about how they’ll look in glasses, so they shy away from oversized frames or bold colors. Rimless glasses help ease eyewear apprehension by improving your vision without overhauling your look.
Rimless glasses are lightweight and comfortable. Because they accent your natural beauty, your features won’t get buried under a pair of rimless glasses.

If you're leaning toward rimless glasses, consider the benefits as compared to rimmed frames:

DO RIMLESS GLASSES LOOK BETTER?

Millions of adults need some form of corrective eyewear, but not all of them are thrilled about it. Rimless glasses are ideal for adults who dislike or cannot use contact lenses but don’t want a noticeable pair of glasses. Some spectacle wearers feel they look best in rimless styles because these glasses obstruct few (if any) of their features. When you wear rimless glasses, you still look just like yourself.

Rimless glasses are also a great option for people with delicate features. Though frames can help narrow a wider face or balance a strong jawline, your face can also look top heavy if you choose framed styles. Consider rimless glasses if you have soft features that might be overwhelmed by framed eyewear.

Framed glasses are often considered fun and trendy, while rimless glasses boast timeless, traditional appeal. That doesn’t mean rimless glasses are unfashionable, though. In fact, many celebrities and models have been seen in rimless glasses over the years, including:

  • Zayn Malik
  • Kit Harrington
  • Kate Beckinsale
  • Bella Hadid


You may have also spotted pics of Jennifer Garner in partially rimmed glasses where the top has a hint of color. These glasses work well for her because they accent her beautiful full brows.

Some rimless wearers argue that frame-free glasses are more fashionable because you can wear them just about anywhere. Rimless glasses are great for everyday wear, but they’re also suitable for formal affairs such as weddings and galas. You don’t have to worry about your frames clashing with your suit or dress.

And while they can certainly be good for those who want glasses that aren’t noticeable or ones that suit everyday needs, that doesn’t mean that they can’t be boldly stylish, too. Consider pairing rimless glasses with tinted lenses, for example, and evoke the nostalgia of a turn-of-the-millennium trend that’s making a comeback.

Or go with a unique lens shape for a more dynamic look. Because they don’t require a rigid fit, rimless glasses offer a wide array of choices when it comes to lenses, including classic lens shapes like aviators and ovals, but work just as nicely with round and geometric shapes. The very literal lack of boundaries makes rimless glasses a versatile and highly-customizable choice.

ARE RIMLESS GLASSES COMFORTABLE?

Rimless glasses are often considered more comfortable than framed styles. They are lightweight, so they won’t press down on your face. However, you may still experience some minor discomfort if your frame adjustment isn’t done properly. Also, it’s important to make sure the parts that wrap around your ears and the side of your head are not too tight, which is where a good frame adjustment comes in. To really minimize the heft of your eyeglasses, consider getting a rimless pair with Hi-index lenses for a near-weightless experience, here at Simply Rimless all of our glasses come with light weight Hi-index lenses included.
