Our Eyeglasses Frame Types

Reviewed by: Henry from Basames on 2022-06-27
  • Choosing your perfect pair of glasses should be a fun and rewarding experience! But how can you make your pick from all of the different types of glasses frames out there?

    Are you looking for the bold look of a full-rim frame or the minimalism of a rimless pair of glasses? Or do you want something in-between? Basames has got you covered with a full selection of each eyeglass frame type.

    Full-Rimmed Frames

    If a bold style is what youre looking for, full-rimmed eyeglass frames may be your best option. These frames fully enclose your lenses with the material, offering a sturdy-yet-stylish pair of glasses. Available in all frame materials — from acetate and plastic to metal and titanium — our full-rim eyeglasses always make a statement and come in an endless variety of styles, colors, and sizes.

    Rimless Frames

    Rimless eyeglass frames are the best choices for those who favor a minimal look and feel. Lightweight and modern, rimless glasses offer plenty of style without taking over your face. With the only elements being the temple arms, the nose bridge, and hinges, these frames keep a low profile on your face without the extravagant design elements of full-rim glasses. They also come in various metals, including titanium.

    Semi-Rimless Frames

    If youre looking for the best of both worlds, semi-rimless eyeglass frames may be the best choice for you. These hybrid frames bring together the minimalism of rimless frames with the full-rim durability. More lightweight than full-rimmed styles, but bolder than rimless eyeglasses, semi-rimless styles are classics with plenty of personality.

    Low Bridge Frames

    Say goodbye to sliding glasses! For those of us with lower nose bridges, the constant worry of our frames getting misaligned can be annoying. Luckily for you, we have the solution. These frames are perfect for people with low nose bridges, and stand at the top of fashion and function.

    Wire Frames

    Wire-frame eyeglasses are the epitome of classic. This charming style has re-entered the mainstream and is a universal fashion staple. Wire frames are also minimalist and lightweight, making them as comfortable as they are trendy. Traditionally, wire frames support circular lens shapes, but youll also find cat-eye and romantic heart shapes in the mix.

    Eyeglass Frames for Every Occasion

    Different rim types are suitable for different occasions and personal senses of style. While rimless frames offer a clean, minimalist look thats perfect for the office, full-rimmed frames are perfect for those looking to make a statement. Semi-rimless frames can fall on either side of the spectrum. With so many options, you may feel torn in multiple directions. Dont be afraid to try more than one to make sure the fit and shape are right for you.
