A check on my pressure shows that 95% of the time l'm at 11.5. We're checking with my doctor about raising the top limit. I had been using the opus medium pillows before.

The 95% (95th percentile) does not mean all night, but rather At or Below this number for 95% of the night
There is big difference between all night long and "at or blow", you'll need SleepyHead to see % of time pressure was at 11
This wouldn't worry me, if AHI is on the low side and getting some decent sleep, at times the machine can increase pressure in response to flow limitation, for me its all about compromise and being at the lowest possible pressure, .... YMMV

I second the simplus very comfortable and works well with my 12-20 pressure.

I would recommend you look at the Amara View FFM. My brother in Law just got one and after the first two nights he tells me it is wonderful. It does not come anywhere near the bridge of your nose.
He used the Wisp for the past year and it was a real battle to get him to use it 50% of the days or 4 hours on any given day.
