Ashley answers the GLASSES question!

You probably know you can ask a question HERE.

But you also probably know that we've recieved more than 35,000 questions over the last couple years. So that's A LOT of questions and lots of girls are waiting for answers and advice.

Sometimes, people just pipe up on the blog and say can you answer this question, here it is, even if it doesn't have anything to do with the post. For instance, on a post about gymnastics, Anonymous asked...

I am getting glasses in a few days and i don't know what my friends will think! Will they make fun of me behind my back? Please help me Jemma or somebody!

It's a good question, but before we could even answer it - Bam! - Ashley responded with a great answer:

Hey. It'll be ok I got glasses a year ago. Nobody laughed at me. Pick out a pair u like. If u want 2 u can pick a pair that isn't 2 noticeable. Mine only have half a rim so they aren't 2 noticable. After you've had them 4 awhile u can ask you're mom if u can get contacts.

Hurray for Ashley! That's thinking pink and being a helpful contributor to the Pink Locker Society blog.

Here's a little more info on glasses and contacts.

Glasses and Contacts

Think pink!

I've had glasses for quite some time as well, don't worry, just think. Soon people won't even remember what you look like without them! I'm going for contacts on the 3rd, wish me luck! And good luck to you too Anonymous person! Haha

Ive had glasses since i was 8. It all depends on you friends personality. Do they like to gossip? Do they compliment people?
So if you know your friends well enough then you can figure it out. But at my school getting braces or glasses is pretty normal.

Hey Jemma have you ever read the book Smile? Its an awesome book. Its about a girl who trips and her two front grown up teeth come out. And when the dentist tries to put them back in she has even more dental problems. It shows her life from sixth grade all the way to high school.

Hey, it's me again, I was thinking about how you LOOK with your eyes, then I thought about actually looks, then I wondered, did PLS get a new artist? Because Jemma used to look like this....
And I've been on here so often, that I never even noticed! So, does anone else remember when the PLS gals looked like that?

So I got glasses in 3rd grade. I'm in 7th now (and still have them). I was so scared to wear them at first, but, honestly, when I did, NO ONE noticed. Maybe a few people did (like the math teacher I was deathly afraid of), but no one's going to notice or care. Hope I helped!!!

I absolutely hate the stereotype when people say that you're a nerd or a geek or a brainiac because you wear glasses. It's so hurtfull! But if they're really your friends, they wouldn't care what you look like so don't sweat it!
Hope I helped!
P.S.The next pair of glasses I'm gunna get will probably be black framed square ones because I've always really liked them

Don't worry about getting glasses. One of my friends started wearing them and I couldn't believe how they suited her so well! You can get them in different colours as well. People will get used to you with specs!

I have had to wear glasses for about 6 years, and i can't survive without them! I wear them from the moment I wake up to right before I go to bed. No one at all makes fun of me, and I actually like them!

My friend who has glasses and braces, but alot of guys like her. She even got asked out! She is really nice so I guess her personality shines through her appearance- even though she's really pretty! But ya, she was worried that people would make fun of her once she got braces, but nobody did! :)

I've got glasses and when I got them nobody laughed, or it was becouse I'm homeschooled, anyway, they're rather comfortable once you get used to them.
No worries!
besides, any friend that laughs at you, or anybody at all, should be ashamed of themselves, it's bad manners.

Don't worry, plenty of people want to have glasses. I need them, and I know that my friends wouldn't care because they themselves wish they had glasses.

Ive been wearing glasses for 6 years now and its not bad; you can get them in lots of colours, shapes and sizes, from thick to thin, from big to small. It doesnt matter what your friends think, but if they think its lame, then they are not true friends! (No offence.)

Even i have glasses and learned how to live with them. If anyone teases youjust flash them a smile and act as you dont care.

Yo, I live with glasses that are bright red. Nobody teases me. Pick a colour that goes with all clothing, like red, black, white, or purple. Also pick a colour that outlines your eyes. My eyes are milk chocolate brown, the red of my glasses really brings out the warmth in them. My friend got glasses two monthes before me. They were hot pink. Every guy in the school had to stare into her eyes for a minute, dazzed, they were soooooooooooooooooooooo distracting! Ha, ha, ha!

I got glasses in the 3rd grade. It's no biggie! They hurt you for a bit, but then you don't even feel them! My friend's say they look good on me and that my face looks empty without them! Don't be ashamed! You will be surprised!

My best best best friend wears glasses. They make her look sooooo pretty. One time, she took off her glasses, and I was shocked. She looked sooooo different! She looks beautiful with glasses, and I bet you do too!

I just got glasses in November. I was nervouse about what everybody would think about me. I got to choose the ones I wanted and I was sort of excited. When I went to school I got tons of compliments on them and they make me look smarter! All my friends said I looked beautiful

ALRIGHT, LISTEN UP GIRLS, im tiered of hearing things like "i dont know wat they'll say about it" or "i dont really like how it looks on me". EVER HEAR OF, "dont doubt your beautie, its the only face god will give you"? And glasses are the TINIEST thing you need to worry about ruining that. I HAVE GLASSES! A girl once told me she didnt like them on me and i said ok and smiled and then i never wore them for the rest of the year!!! BIG MISTAKE! My eyes ALWAYS hurt. i wear my glasses any time i can at school now. SO GIRL, DONT WORRY, YOU'LL LOOK BEAUTIFUL IN YOUR GLASSES!!! and if AYONE says they dont like them, just say "at least my eyes, can actually be looked through!" CASE SOLVED, NO MORE SHALL BE SAID! (p.s. im yelling with a luagh in my voice) :^)

Hey! I got glasses in December and I was afraid that everyone would make fun of me but eventually I realized that my vision would get worse and worse so now I wear them whenever I can't see something. Believe me. All my friends got used to it (I asked them)

Think of how some people would look WITHOUT glasses. Like Harry Potter or that kid that lives down the street. Or your grandpa. Sometimes glasses make the person look even more like themselves.

I've had glasses for 3 years and believe me, they're a TOTAL nuisance. You really don't want them!!!
But once you've been diagnosed with eye power, you must wear them or contacts.

Dont be afraid glasses are really big this year especially if you get like the square kinds. If you wear them with the right attitude you will be OK :)
