One of the things that my sister-in-law and I have in common is our love for big sunglasses. For us, the bigger the lens the better. I recently received a pair of Foster Grant sunglasses. The frames were generously sized, just the way I like them. I wasn’t completely thrilled with the arms though. My sister-in-law saw them and fell in love with them. I haven’t seen them since.

If you think about it, sunglasses are really versatile. They can protect our eyes. They can hide our eyes. They can make it easier to see. They can make a fashion statement. They can even look good on the top of our head. We all wear sunglasses for different reasons. Can you imagine what it would look like if everyone wore the same sunglasses? Boring!

Foster Grant is the original sunglasses manufacturer. Yes that’s right. Foster Grant has been making sunglasses since 1919, longer then most of us have been around. So it’s safe to say that they know their stuff when it comes to making sunglasses. There’s no need to worry about everyone wearing the same sunglasses, since Foster Grant makes tons of different styles. Fashion, sports, driving, polarized, active, trendy and classic styles, just to name a few.

Even though there is a huge selection of styles, Foster Grant sunglasses have a couple of things in common.

  • Every pair of Foster Grant sunglasses is equipped with MaxBlock™ 100% UVA-UVB lens protection.
  • Every pair is made from lightweight, durable materials, built for quality and value.

Another thing my sister-in-law and I have in common. Virtually empty pockets and wallets. We can’t afford crazy expensive sunglasses. With Foster Grant’s selection, that’s not a problem. Pricing for a typical pair of sunglasses is between $15 and $20. That’s not bad at all for an item with so many uses now is it!

I love big, round lenses and a fairly traditional arm, and my favorite color for the frames is usually black or tortoise. What’s your favorite style of sunglasses?

I’m jealous–love good sunshades but am too frugal to iinvest in a pair.

I love those sunglasses! My son broke my favorite pair of sunglasses, so I need a new pair. Going to check these out…

They look fabulous on you! Love the rhinestone detailing on the sides. I’ve honestly only seen corny infomercials for Foster Grants, but they actually look like really attractive sunglasses. Stopping by from the SSM thread 🙂 Have a great rest of your weekend!

These are gorgeous. Not sure they would fit my face though, they seem awfully big, but for someone with a longish narrow face, it is just perfect.

Love the sunglasses, your sis-in-law looks great in them! I need a new pair, I just broke mine. Unlike Daisy, I can’t even blame it on my son. I dropped them on the cement and they broke.

Oh I love those glasses!! Love the look too very pretty!! Might have to check into getting these!

Emily September 29, 2013 - 2:53 pm

These look great in the pics – I think it can be hard to find oversized sunglasses that still fit the face & face shape well but they look like a perfect fit for your sister in law!

It’s nice when sunglasses are an affordable little luxury!

Thank you for the review. I just ordered two pair of Foster Grant sunglasses. I was pleasantly surprised at the affordability. Also, I went to their website and signed up for their FREE club which gave me a discount and free shipping!! That is two pair of glasses for less than $19! An added bonus is that they offer payment via paypal. I hope they will look as good as the pair you modeled here.

I was duped into thinking this american company was the right choice. I bought 3 pairs. ALL MADE IN CHINA.
One pair is pretty o.k., (yellow lens for night driving). One pair of aviators had so much glare and reflection on the back of the lenses, they were unuseable. I gave them away and the person who got them said the same thing.
The third pair were polarized and fit nicely, however, the ear piece separated from the temple after wearing them maybe ten times. I took very good care of them. To return them I’d have to download a mailing label (I have no printer), send them back, and wait to see if they’d replace them. I used super glue and avoided the hassle.

I paid for mine- 15-30 a pair. Better off buying cheap sunglasses.
