wedgees wedgees

Last year, against the advice of the optometrist, I bought Lilah the frames SHE really liked. She wanted blue frames, nothing would do until we found a pair of blue frames. And at the time, I felt it necessary to buy her the frames she really wanted, because I felt if I did, she would wear them without complaint. The optometrist, on the other hand, felt Lilah would have been better off with a pair of frames that had nose pads, because of her nose bridge or lack thereof, but unfortunately we couldn't find a pair with nosepads in the magic colour - blue! So I bought Lilah the frames she adored!

And she loves her frames - other than the odd reminder from us, she wears them faithfully. And that is quite something for our Lilah, because our girly doesn't like to stand out and be different from other children... no way, she's self conscious and sensitive on many levels and she very much likes to blend into the crowd. And with only one other child in her class with glasses, I figured we'd be in for a battle. But no. Thankfully, that wasn't the case.

However, there HAS been a battle with these glasses. The battle has been trying to keep her glasses from slidding down her nose. In fact, it was getting to the point that she wasn't even looking through the glass half the time and they were more of a nuisance than a help.

So, about a month ago I had come to the realization that I needed to get it together and buy her a new pair of frames, with nose pads. But first, in a last minute attempt to educate myself, I googled the problem... because I figured there had to be more than my Lilah girl out there with this exact same issue. Yep - of course there was! I went through a list of articles and ideas of what to do, etc, etc and then I came across the website for 'Wedgees'! After reading the reviews, I decided we just had to give them a whirl. I figured for $20 (two pairs of wedgees, plus postage) we couldn't go wrong! Oh, and we live in Canada, I think they're cheaper if you're ordering from the US.

And guess what, they're absolutely FABULOUS!! The wedgees are made from a piece of neoprene, (a synthetic rubber commonly used to make wet suits) that slides tightly onto the legs of your glasses. They hold Lilah's glasses on perfectly - no slidding whatsoever! They are comfortable and you can't even see them - I bought the black ones, to match her hair! She can even jump up and down and run around like a crazy girl and they stay put... as demostrated in the pictures below!

We are so thankful for these 'wedgees'. You can check them out here...
I also posted a video below, you can check it out too!



  1. I may need to look into these for Lilah, she always looks like a little old lady in bifocals, the way her glasses slide down and she looks over the top!

    1. My Lilah was exactly the same, Paige! I highly recommend them.

  2. Oh my gosh, I am so excited to get these for my Liliah. She has such a sweet tiny little asian nose and she does look like an little old librarian trying to keep them up on her nose all the time (cute), but annoying and I'm sure not benefiting from the prescriptions she's supposed to be looking through!

  3. I may invest in some for myself!! My sunglasses are always sliding down my nose! This might be the answer!!

  4. I have always loved those glasses on Miss Lilah :)

  5. Lilah looks super cute in her blue specs. I love, love, love these shot's of your girl. Even her ponytails look happy!

  6. Thanks so much for posting this Jill! For us it's a sunglass problem.

  7. I bought a pair from them too, and they work, but don't think they're worth what they're charging for for the material they're made from. I live in Canada and had mine shipped. And if you live outside the U.S. you have to pay $3.50 per pair. If you order two, you pay another $3.50, So, I paid $7.00 postage for my two orders which were sent in one #10 white envelope that was sent by air mail, without tracking. You would think $7 would include tracking. Sadly, the postage attached on the envelope was only $1.30, and I paid $7 for it. I think this is very dishonest on Wedgees part by making money on postage. I totally got ripped off!
