Last fall I started swimming again for the first time in over 20 years. It seems that I have a larger than average nose and all of the goggle I have tried cut into the bridge of my nose and become quite painful by the end of practice. Any suggestions on what brand or type I should look for. I have been looking online but the plethora of choices is overwhelming.

Speedo Bajas work for me. I have had similar problems with other models.

Swedes.

Little rubber "straw" piece feels good on the nose and would adjust to even fit toucan sam's nose if needed.

Kelly,

It sounds like you need to look for goggles that have an adjustable nosepiece. I have found that making the nosepiece narrower or wider has a huge impact on both comfort and leakage.

I wear the TYR Racetech goggles. They are an old style that has been around for years. Several of our sponsors sell them; I think the last time I bought them I got them through SwimOutlet.com.

I can't use sweds , they smash my eyes & my contacts won't stay on.
Most new goggles have a set of nose pieces to fit noses of all sizes .
