Cute Readers, Poor Quality
My sister gave me these for Christmas. They are a very cute style and I received lots of complements. Unfortunately, after six weeks of minimal use, they broke. The right ear piece just fell off. Thought maybe the screw had come loose, but it actually cracked and broke away from frame. I keep different readers all over my house in various areas, where i know I will need them. These I kept at my bedside, so they were probably worn 30 minutes - 1 hour daily. For what these cost and for as little as I wore them, they should last much longer.

The material used in making these glasses is brittle. The frame around the lens broke within a week of intermittent wear.

I am hoping 3rd time is the charm
I really like the frames of these glasses and get wonderful compliements;however, my first pair didn't last that long. The frame cracked and the lens came out of the glasses. I returned them - and bought another pair because I was told that this never happend. I have had the 2nd pair 6 weeks and the frame cracked again? I see from the review that others have had the same problem.

Cute but short lived
I really liked the look of these readers. But, the frame cracked within 6 months, real bummer. My other pair I found at a hotel lobby store while on a trip, are flexible and have lasted for years. Perhaps Vera Bradley can work on this.

I got these in the store, and I love them! I wish they came in other colors. They are rather thin, but I don't wear them all the time so they seem sturdy enough for me. In fact, I love how light-weight they are.

Had purchased VB readers in stores previously with great success. Ordered these online. Arrived quickly and immediately was disappointed. Presumed they came with a case like in the stores. They didn't. Wore them once and right side piece broke.
