I was excited to try sunglasses by Covry because as an Asian woman, I have a relatively flat nose bridge and I wanted to support an Asian-owned business so it was a win-win decision. I have a rounder face shape so I gravitate towards oversized, square frames, making the Merak the perfect choice. Unfortunately, as someone with a ginormous head, ordering sunglasses or hats online is risky, and this was no exception. And as I'm writing this I got curious and whipped out my tape measure to find that the circumference of my head at the nook of my ears is about 22". These sunglasses fit, but it's juuust tight enough to feel a little off. I like the way it looks and sits on the rest of my face enough to ignore it, but just be careful if you have a big head like I do!
I always had a hard time finding a pair of glasses that would fit on my nose and not touch my cheeks or press on my eyelashes. I gave the Merak L Smoke a try and they were perfect! I tested the glasses with a happy face and super scrunched up face and it didn't touch my cheek at all. I also liked that the smoke color is dark and the branding very minimal.
firstly, it looks great. Love the design. It's so hard for me to find this type of designed sunglasses. it always touches my cheeks, eyelashes and so forth. But this one! solved all the problems. it's tad heavy since it's a big glasses and slides down. but my nose is pretty flat. so this is the best one so far. I would definitely come back for more glasses here.
I've tried other "low-bridge" glasses that were better, but still touched my cheeks and slid down. This is the best fit I've found and it's so light and goes well with everything.
Fit my nose bridge right out the box! Which is such a nice feeling-- my face is big too so the size of these are perfect, and I love the color on my skin tone. Will be put to work this summer :)
