Sturdy, Decent Lenses, but Awkward Fit

Received this yesterday as the 2nd try to replace my favorite Smith Jetset polarized sunglasses i broke after 4 years. These Natives are seemingly sturdy plastic frames and lenses. The frame color is a cool/ subdued royal bluish or a brighter navy would be the best way i could describe them. I have very sensitive-to-light eyes and these block sunlight adequately with greenish tones. All of this is good - the problem is how they sit. I have a average to large head, round face and a relatively average to thin/ small ski slop nose, yet these sit at an awkward location on the bridge of my nose because the bridge opening is seemingly pretty tight combines with the slight curvature of the frames. If i sit them where they fit, high up my bridge, my eyelashes hit the lenses, moisture traps behind the lens pocket, and it also looks awkward; if i slide them down my nose then the light transmission from above the frames is noticeable and it still looks awkward (as if i have nub for a nose). Usually most sunglasses look good on my face but these just look a little awkward and the nose grip is uncomfortable - uncomfortable enough that you can still feel where it grips your nose long after you have taken them off. They are getting sent back.
