Face mask reommendations please
Old 06-30-2020, 01:56 PM

I'm looking for a face mask I can live with. I don't like the fitted ones, they're too tight. Some of the layered type ones are too big for my face.

If anyone has bought masks they like on Etsy can you please shoot me the name of the seller so I can head over there and check them out?

Thanks much.

I have a couple different types, but my issue is as soon as I start talking, my chin moving makes it start sliding down my face. No idea how to teach with a mask that does that. I do not have any with nose wires, however.

I like the masks I have gotten from Jasmine20 over on the advertising board, so does my sister-in-law. She wears masks more than me, [I don't go out much or have people in[ and she really says these are the best she has had. She likes the material and the fact they seem to be a little wider. She also likes the nose wire.

She hasn't used the beaded insert yet, since she has really been working from home. But that extra insert sounds like it will be good for keeping you cool with the mask.

1956-those aren't too small for you? I feel like it would be constricting. I have one kind of like that and it's super constricting.

I bought a couple of masks from this designer.

She apparently won Project Runway and is plus sized.

The are not tight, are easy to adjust and she has some cute designs.

I just picked up some from target. I actually really love them. They are lightweight and donít make me feel like Iím having a hard time breathing. I have a big test coming up and I have to wear a mask for the whole test (4 hours). I think I might be able to do it with the target mask.

I just buy the plain old papery ones you can get at the drugstore. Not fancy youíre pretty, but very easy to wear.

I have a few that I've made, as well as one from Jasmine on the advertising board. I'm finding that the ones made out of stretch cotton (like t-shirt material) are more comfortable than those made out of quilting cotton fabrics. They just seem less hot, though I haven't worn one for more than 1 hour yet.

These are very comfortable

These are great. Very economical. I plan on taking 3-4 to work each day if we are wearing them.

3D or Octagon style
Old 06-30-2020, 04:49 PM
  #13

I have been sewing masks for my family and so far I have tried three different styles. The flat kind that is a pleated rectangle, the kind that looks like a cone shape and one that was called an Octagon style. So far, the Octagon style has been the winner for being able to talk without the mask moving up and down, being breathable and comfortable . It is called an Octagon mask because the pattern starts off with an octagon shape. Some sellers on Etsy called it a 3D mask. I haven't bought any but here are a couple of links so that you can see what the style looks like. They do come in different sizes for women, children, men and to fit over an N95 mask.

Not Etsy, but I bought a few from here. I really like them. They don't have the weird chemical smell that the surgical ones do, the ear strap is adjustable, and they are cute.

A friend gave me a BoHo scarf. You can wear it many ways. I love it. It looks like a scarf you just pull it up from your neck over your face.

Masks
Old 06-30-2020, 06:48 PM

Iíve purchased the ones from Target. I like them when I do my therapy exercises in the pool. Masks in the pool are not required, but I wear it. Iím mostly walking laps and doing leg exercises.

Iíve purchased some from LATrends on Etsy twice. These are 3D style and come with filters. I really like them overall, but they are thicker so wearing them for a long time is difficult for me. They also have adjustable ear loops.

Iíve also made some rectangular ones with pleats. These are fine, too. I use a paper towel for a filter.

I do not have a favorite so far.

one I bought from Etsy is my favorite

The N95 is too big, it causes my glasses to fog up and is very hot.

The disposable ones I have in blue with the folds across the front slips off my nose when I talk.

I like my cloth one best. It fits well.
