Best Sunglasses for Women

While at the beach, polarized sunglasses are really the best option.  Polarized sunglasses are sunglasses that have a polarizing film that is applied to the lenses to help reduce any type of glare. The glare is created when light bounces off of surfaces such as buildings and water. When buying women’s polarized sunglasses, put good eye protection and comfort ahead of style and price. This will most likely mean going for a more sporty type of glasses rather than a street style fashion. However, polarized sunglasses were developed specifically for outdoor activities such as volleyball, swimming, fishing and hiking. This being the case, street style fashion should not be your highest priority.  Polarized sunglasses will be lighter than your normal pair of sunglasses because they are meant to be worn all day and need to be comfortable. They will offer a good fit that does not slip around the sides of your head.

    Hi Laehrae,
    I am a big fan of Maui. I own one of their polarized sunglasses and they are fantastic!
    I absolutely agree that a good pair of polarized sunglasses is a must-to-have for every woman, especially on the beach. It protects your eyes from the impact of UV-waves.
    The season is coming and I think I should go ahead and upgrade mine to a new pair! Glad to find your post, it gave me a great overview of available options!

      I have Ray Bans and have always been partial to them. But I did try on a pair of Mauis at my son’s work, and they are NICE! It is time for a change for me 🙂 Glad you enjoyed reading about the best sunglasses for women!

    I hadn’t really understood why we need polarized sunglasses until I read your post. Now I am sold on the idea. It makes more sense now.
    I really like the tortoishell Ray Bans and think they will be a great buy. I like to buy brands that have good reputation.

      Silly, but I have two pair of that exact Ray Ban, and then one other different style Ray Ban.  Not only should you use polarized lenses, the view is awesome.  Everything looks better 🙂  Thanks for reading!

    My wife needs a new pair of sunglasses and Mother’s Day will be here soon, so that may be a great present for her. The Ray-Ban Havana Polarized Sunglasses are just her style. She also has pretty sensitive eyes, so I think the larger style will help to protect her from the wind as well as the rays. I love the tortoise shell, and polarized lenses are a must. This is a great gift idea and something she needs.

      I am glad you found a pair you like for her.  I personally have three pairs of Ray Bans and love them.  They are comfortable and the view is great 🙂  Thanks for visiting the best sunglasses for women.

    Leahrae, I enjoyed your round up. We live in Sunny Victoria Falls Zimbabwe and know that sunglasses are essential. I totally agree that it’s not always just about looks, you do need to have practical eye protect that fits your activities. Visitors to Vic Falls, often forget to get sunglasses (and they cost a bomb this side) or they aren’t used to the sun and don’t realise that heat and glare can hurt your eyes. We like Ray-Ban, but thought the Costa would be an excellent choice for water sports.

      I have 3 pair of Ray Bans myself, but I keep thinking I am going to get a pair of Costa. I tried them on and love the fit and what you see thru the lenses, amazing! Thanks for visiting and taking the time to leave me a review about the best sunglasses for women.

    Great post full of useful information.It’s sad that some of our youths don’t know how important it is to wear sunglasses especially while out in the sun.
    I really love Costa Fantail Polarized Sunglasses.

      Great choice Ruth! Yes, I keep trying to pound it in my son’s head how important it is to wear sunglasses, especially here in the sunshine state. I don’t walk out the door without my Ray Bans 🙂 Thanks for reading 🙂

    Many of these sunglasses look cool. I would really need to try them on to see what they look like on me. I am curious if they would allow for me to try on and if they do not look good return them?

    Reply
    1. Leahrae (Post author)

      Yes, you can always return them 🙂 If you don’t like them and they don’t fit your face, you can most certainly return them. Amazon has a GREAT return policy 🙂 Thanks for visiting the best sunglasses for women!

    I think my girlfriend would really enjoy these sun glasses. She tends to like the larger lens like this. How is the gradient polarization? Is it really noticeable when you wear them or is it primarily for looks? My regular glasses are RayBan too. I thought they were expensive at first, but I’ll probably never go back to a cheaper brand.

    Reply
    1. Leahrae (Post author)

      I will never go back either. If I break or lose a pair, I will still buy another pair of Ray Bans. I don’t think the polarization is noticeable. I think everything looks awesome behind the lenses.

    Those are some very pretty sun glasses, though I don’t think I would ever spend that much money for a pair of sun glasses, sorry. I actually prefer glasses with a wide side to block the sun on the sides not just from what is directly in fron of me. I also think I would be afraid that having a costly pair would end up breaking easily with kids around. But like I said they are very pretty.

      They are pretty 🙂 I have a couple of pair, and yes at first I was worried that I would get them broken or lose them. I guess I am just cautious with them.

    I see Ray Ban is maintaining its long standing excellent reputation.
    Eye protection is important and sun glasses really do have to be comfortable.
    I see from your other comments that these glasses don’t change the color of the environment and that is the best way to view art and historical places (if you’re touring).

    Hi there!
    Ray Ban sunglasses are my preferred ones. And there are so much models, right?
    When I have to buy sunglasses, my first priority is the lens quality, and for me Ray Ban is one of the best brands in it! Besides the lens quality there are the design, and these ones are really beautiful!
    Thank you so much for such a great review!

      I have to agree Alex. I have two pairs of Raybans and I won’t wear anything else. They are worth the money in my opinion!

    I am always wearing sunglasses, especially on bike rides. I am wondering about the glasses you offer: are they shielding from the wind enough? And another question: what is the the enhancement of color they transform the landscape in? Are they towards bluish or green? Or do they evoke the impression of seeing things in the evening sun?

    Reply
    1. Leahrae (Post author)

      Yes, I have this pair and they shield fine from the wind. I see the landscape in true color. It doesn’t appear to change the color for me.

    Hi Leahrae,
    Those sure are some beautiful sunglasses. There’s also plenty of positive customer reviews to prove it. Of course you will always have a few unhappy people but for the most part people are raving about these comfortable, well built, stylish sunglasses. I always prefer products with high ratings from happy customers. I’m convinced they are good ones. Thanks for the review.

      You are welcome and I am glad you like them. As you say, you cannot make everyone happy. But I absolutely love them. I am on my third pair now. First pair I lost, second pair I sat on 🙁 and this pair I am trying to be a bit more careful with. New style for me and they are awesome 😀
