Does your mask rub on your face constantly? Does it feel like you’re suffocating? Sizing will make all the difference. All you need is a ribbon or string and soft measuring tape.

Measuring for a Mask

Your mask should tuck in just under the chin and lightly grip the bridge of your nose to prevent slipping while talking. Start by measuring from those 2 points.
