The Best Low Bridge Sunglasses You Didn’t Know You Needed

I’ve always struggled with sunglasses. Either they’re sliding down my nose constantly, sitting on my cheeks, or riding up my face every time I smile. It wasn’t until last year, when I purchased my first pair of Chanel sunglasses at Bloomingdales, that I discovered something called low bridge sunglasses. 

My boyfriend and I were approached by a Bloomingdale’s sales lady in the sunglasses department about a year ago. I asked her if she had any recommendations for which sunglasses she thought might look good on me, and she immediately said, “I think you’re going to need low bridge sunglasses.” I had no idea what she was talking about until she pointed out the larger nose pads on a few pairs. She explained that, if I’m finding my sunglasses ride up a lot when I smile, they are probably resting on my high cheekbones. They should be resting on my nose instead. She suggested a pair with a larger nose pad to accommodate my face shape.

The first time I tried on the Chanel sunglasses she suggested, I was blown away. I kept smiling wide-eyed, waiting for them to move, but they never did. I bought them and they are still one of my favorite pairs of sunnies. 

You might find that low bridge sunglasses are also referred to as low nose bridge glasses or Asian fit glasses or sunglasses. This is because these types of frames are designed for a flatter nose bridge and higher cheekbones. Note that both names refer to sunglasses that have a larger nose pad.

These Are The Best Low Bridge Sunglasses

After the discovery of low bridge fit frames, I’ve been on a hunt for sunglasses that actually fit my face. Did you know that most sunglasses are designed for a specific face shape? Most of us with flatter face shapes have a harder time finding sunglasses that actually fit properly. Thankfully, eyewear brand Mohala Eyewear has made it its mission to cater to folks with a variety of face shapes. And I believe they have some of the best low bridge sunglasses on the market!

I’ve tried multiple frames from Mohala, and some look better on my narrow face than others! See below for a few of my favorites.

Lanikai Sunglasses

These shades are super cute and have a bit of a feminine feel to them. They come in two shades (black and tortoise shell) and are available in the “medium nose bridge” and “low nose bridge” versions.

Keana Sunglasses

These were the original Mohala Eyewear sunglasses that I purchased last summer and I wear them all the time. They are another pair that are a bit large for my small face, but they stay on my nose really well and I wear them when I want to feel more like Paris Hilton with my ridiculously large shades. This style comes in five different frame colors, three different nose bridges, and two options for frame width—either “medium” or “wide.”

Kona Sunglasses

These shades are perfect for folks with narrow faces and low nose bridges. This style comes in three frame colors. Unfortunately, the black and tortoise shell frame shades only come in the “low nose bridge” style. The “ice” frame shade does come in the medium nose bridge, which is my best nose bridge fit.

Hana Sunglasses

I really love the shape of these square Hana sunglasses, but they are way too wide for my face! I ended up returning them. However, I think these would be amazing for someone with a round, wide face that is on the hunt for low nose bridge sunglasses.

The Pros of Mohala’s Low Bridge Sunglasses

I had originally tested out some of the Mohala Sunglasses with the special “low nose bridge” option. However, I discovered that I actually fit the “medium nose bridge” option better. I found that the “low nose bridge” sunnies were actually fitting too far away from my face. It turns out that I needed a nose bridge that was larger than my regular sunglasses, but smaller than the “low nose bridge” sunnies from Mohala. The “medium nose bridge” fits just right. 

Not only are the nose bridges customizable, but I also appreciate that you can bend the legs in and out every so slightly to fit your face shape.

The Cons of Mohala’s Low Bridge Sunglasses

I love the way both of these sunglasses fit (they are the same style, just different colors) on my face. But I do wish they were a bit smaller to fit my small-ish face shape. I’d love for the brand to release more sunglasses that don’t have such large/wide frames.

One of the downsides of this brand is that not all sunglasses come with the three nose bridge options. I wish that each sunglass color came with each nose bridge option.

The Details

The Packaging and Costs of Mohala Low Bridge Sunglasses

Each pair of sunglasses costs between $179-$189. They come in a millennial pink, collapsible water-resistant case, along with a microfiber cleaning cloth pouch. The frames are made from renewable sources, and I know these sunnies will last me a long time. 

I love that Mohala Eyewear donates one week of school to the Room to Read Girls’ Education Program for each sunglasses purchase.  Plus, I’m really looking forward to purchasing more from this brand in the future. If you are someone who finds yourself always purchasing ill-fitting sunglasses (and maybe you’re not even aware of this–I wasn’t!), consider trying Mohala Eyewear!
