Awesome! Thanks so much for these recommendations! I will try a few different ones for starters! As I look at the different prints/patterns/colors and types, I'm kind of getting obsessed!

I just bought one yesterday from Vera Bradley. $8.00 I need to wash and dry it first before I try it on but my plan is to buy 5 in different patterns and wear a different one each day of the week to school. It has a slit for a filter and I saw online that some have recommended sliding in a coffee filter.

Thank you for the link Amiga! I just ordered some masks for my family. There were some really cute prints to choose from. Yesterday I found jasmine20's add in the advertisement board, and ordered from her. I figure I should stock up since our state, for now, says we are going back to school all day, five days a week.

Please see the post on the Advertisement Board and email me at for fabric and style options.

I have bought masks from Jasmine20 on the advertisment board. They are great. They are wide, have the nose wire and a bead that lets you adjust the mask. I don't wear masks very often but have also bought them for my sister-in-law and she wears it daily to work. She says its the most comfortable for her to wear all day. Jasmine also has cooling beads that go into the mask that helps keep you cool.

I suggest having or at least trying different styles until you find what you like. I prefer cotton masks. My daughter prefers thin masks made from some kind of synthetic fiber. My husband prefers the disposable ones like in your picture.

I have a cotton surgical mask that ties. I like how it fits and it is easy to breathe with it on. I want some with earloops instead because the ties get tangled in my hair. I like that when I'm not wearing it, I can hang it around my neck. If I'd wear my hair back, it wouldn't get tangled in my hair. We should probably all have some masks that tie or go around our head to give our ears a break now and then.

I have one fitted mask that suffocates me. I have another fitted mask that falls off my nose. I saw a mask with vertical pleats I'd like to try.

Cotton masks do get wet after a while, so I will probably need two masks per school day. The plus though is my face is usually dry. With the disposable masks, my face sweats terrible

Hope my rambling helps somehow.

My 22 year old daughter really likes the ones from Sock Fancy.

I like mine from Sweaty bands.

I can vouch for these great masks made by one of our PTers.

I've been wearing those soft blue disposable masks, like what's pictured. However, considering we are probably going to be doing this for a while, I'd rather have a fabric one. I'm a little worried I'll get one that's too thick or made from different material that will make it harder to breath. Considering I'll probably have to wear one all day if/when we go back in the fall, I'd like one that's still comfortable to wear. Does anyone have any recommendations of brands/sellers that would be comfortable and easy to breath in? Maybe on Etsy, amazon, or even a store? What do you recommend?
