Body Glove

When you think Body Glove, you immediately think Missouri, right? Although the South Bay region of Los Angeles is actually considered the home of Body Glove, the long story of the company actually traces back to a farm near Booneville, Missouri-a long way from their eventual home along the Pacific. It was there that founders Bob and Bill Meistrell taught themselves to swim and by age twelve had used their imaginations to rig a makeshift diving bell out of a wooden crate and descend into the depth of the farm pond. This love for the water eventually lured the brothers to Manhattan Beach as teenagers in the 40's. Bob and Bill instantly took to the ocean. In 1953 they helped develop Dive N' Surf into southern California's premiere retail store dedicated to surfing and diving. They eventually went on to expand the business to offer full lines of surfing and diving equipment, classes and apparel at multiple locations. Together they found a new insulating material called Neoprene and invented the first practical wetsuit. The suit "fit like a glove" and Body Glove was born.


Nice shades!

For the money you can't beat them. They grip your head well so they don't fall off. Inexpensive, stylish polarized sunglasses. They work as well as more expensive polarized shades.

Love them

These glasses are great. Lightweight. Not too big. Polarized. Hinges have gotten a little loose, but don't cause any problems. Would buy again.

My go-to sunglasses
By Julie V., from Annapolis, Maryland | June 09, 2014

I just purchased my third pair of Body Glove Carillo Beach sunglasses. I found my first pair 7 years ago and have worn them out. Sadly, the second pair I purchased didn't last as long because they were run over by the lawn mower! So, I bought my third pair because they are the most comfortable, flexible, and durable sunglasses I have ever owned--and I've owned quite a few (from very expensive to very cheap, and all styles!). I also like that the overall shape and size is larger, which protects my eyes and surrounding eye area without overwhelming my small face.
