Berserk! My pillow thinks my headgear is an alien

RE: Berserk! My pillow thinks my headgear is an alien
Last night worked better as far as getting my headgear snagged by the pillow (though not for just about any other reason).

I tried a smoother pillow case. I might even get a slick satin one from the Cheap Store to see if that helps even more.  Shudder....satin bedding....what I have to settle for in the quest for beauty rest!  Oh-jeez

RE: Berserk! My pillow thinks my headgear is an alien
I use a satin pillowcase, but only because it's the only one I have big enough for my new pillow. Normally they're a PITA because they slide around a bit too much. They make no difference to my leaks, though.

I really like the Swift's pillow setup, but not the sticky headgear. I like the P10 all around, but leaks are seemingly increasing.

I've just ordered the Brevida headgear (nobody in Amazon will ship a full mask setup to Australia at the moment or I'd have ordered one) to try a hack for the Swift's pillows. I like that it's adjustable, so it's worth a go for me.

Satin seems just so déclassé... what I get reduced to for a good night's sleep! LMAO the difference between upbringing and reality. Oh-jeez 

Sigh...Would that I could afford silk. Wouldn't that be the most paradoxical mash-up paired with one of Kiwii's recommended buckwheat pillows? High-falutin' and hippy...  Thinking-about

I have baby fine hair, and I also had trouble with my Swift FX for Her headgear sliding around at night.  What I tried was a cloth surgical cap/scrub cap.  It gave my head enough traction to hold the headgear in place.

As for slinky pillowcases...Walmart actually has some sheets that are very slinky and reasonably priced.  I think it was around $15 for a set of King size sheets.

A staple gun will also work... Big Grin

Masks are so funny. Who knew?   Dancing

Since I've reached the end of my tether with flappy lips, cyclone leaks, imploding nostrils, and exploding mask pillows—not to mention P10-grabbing bed pillows—I have ordered 3 masks from Supplier #1 with return insurance, at great impact to my cash flow. No groceries for 30 days.

I ordered a Simplus, F20 Airtouch, and Swift FX Nano. Much as I like the minimalism, I'm giving up on mask pillows for the nonce to minimize objections from nares, nostrils, and lesser alar cartilages hell bent on making trouble. Blowing-nose

I'm aiming for "fix it and forget it".


I have not been able to get my DME even to answer the phone.  Annoyed-and-disappointed

Good Luck trying out your new masks. I hope you find one that works for you.

I think once you settle on a mask, everything else should fall into place.   Cool
