    Hi Imogen! Long time reader from the heartland of America. I love your site and have gotten so much great information from you! Wanted to let you know that I shared this particular video on my new blog because choosing eyeglass frames has always been a fuzzy area for me — and not just because I can’t see without correction! Love how you analyzed, demonstrated and made it all seem so natural!

    First time visitor from Canada. Found you through Une femme d’un certain age. This was the most informative and helpful video ever! I always have so much trouble finding glasses and this will really help me know what I’m looking for. Example: I’d never even thought of bridge height before. Fabulous!

      Thanks Rachelle, I’m so glad that the video has helped you! There are so many elements to glasses frames, but understanding a few of them can really help choose flattering ones.

  • Such a timely video, Imogen, I just broke my main pair of glasses and have to shop for new ones this week!
