Most Vintage frames tend to run small. They were worn much closer to the face than today's frames. Cat eye glasses are no exception. While there are many factors affecting the size, the lens width is a good way to get a general idea. Lens size 42 and lower is considered small, 44 and 46 medium, 48 and above are large. Please make sure this size will work for you before ordering.
Cat-eye glasses are a form of eyewear for women that were mainly popular in the 1950's and 1960's among fashionable women. Out of the small amount that were originally made, most are not around today and they are becoming harder to find. When you buy a pair of vintage cat eye glasses, you are not just getting something made yesterday and shipped overseas. You are wearing something that has been through life, an age different than our own, and survived till this day. Wearing vintage cat eye glasses assures that you’ll stand out from the masses in a pair of glasses that brings out your individuality.
