Will Boots Optician let me buy from the children’s range of frames?!

I must have a really small head (!) or something but the glasses I have been trying on all look really wide-even the petite range from Specsaver. I saw a really nice pair in the kids’ section of Boots earlier though-will they let adults buy them?! I have a recent prescription from my optician.

I can't see why not. My sister had a kids frame once but I can't remember where she got them from.
If they refuse, I'm sure you could just buy the frame and get somewhere else to put the lenses in. I used an online company for the lenses and it was very reasonable. Aboutb £10 IIRC.
