    Wide Women's Frames

    Hello all!

    I'm on the hunt for some frame options that meet some very specific requirements. I have a young lady who needs a wide fit but has very prominent cheeks. We are looking for something that wide, yet has a shorter B, and is feminine. She has been wearing the Aspire Expressive, which is discontinued but can be seen here for reference:

    https://www.coolframes.com/glasses/a...tml#d26fe686e5

    What we are looking for:
    minimum eyesize of 54
    maximum B measurement of 37(ish)
    feminine shape (curved/flared brow) with a squared off bottom. nothing rounded
    metal construct or at least has nosepads

    The current frame has broke on multiple occasions, but we are no longer able to get it for obvious reasons. She wears a -4.00 so this type of flexible plastic/ nylon is not ideal for longevity; hence the request for metal.

    So far, I have looked through OWP, OVVO, Carolina Herrera, Paradox, and Aspire for options but only have one or two that truly meet the requirements. My hurdle is that B measurement. We would greatly appreciate any suggestions of lines that may offer this type of fit! Thanks in advance!!

    Thanks guys! These are some great additions. CV Brynn is very close to her needs so I'm going to get one of those in. I'm keeping the other lines in mind for future people (they didn't quite have the shape I need) but very nice range of sizes.
