Secrets of spectacle frames
GOOD news for everyone who has concerns about the length of their nose – if you wear glasses, choosing the right model can make a long nose appear smaller.
That is the advice from the KGS, an optical-industry body in Germany which promotes quality in eyeglasses.
The position of the nose bridge has an effect on the appearance of the nose. The higher up you push the eyeglasses, the longer the nose seems. (top)
A curved nose bridge has the same effect. This means high and curved bridges suit people with turned-up noses, according to the KGS.
On the other hand a bridge that is lower down can help make a long nose appear shorter.
If you don’t want the ridge of your nose to appear uneven or crooked, you should choose a wide nose bridge.
Narrow bridges draw emphasis to bumps and kinks. – dpa
