Chin strap for someone with a BIG head?

Chin strap for someone with a BIG head?
I bought a chin strap today on amazon but its way too tight. It looks like all of them are that I've looked at. By chance do any of you know if there is a chin strap for someone with a big head?

The Knightsbridge dual band is available in XL size for those of us who are cranially gifted.

Have you used it. Is it effective?

I bought one and it fits, but I have yet to use it. Sticking with my F&P Vitera full face mask for the foreseeable future. I can’t find a nasal or pillows mask that doesn’t put push inward on my nose (because my head is giant). If it pushes in even a little, it collapses my nostrils (deviated septum).

I look like an astronaut with the Knightsbridge thing on. Will defer to others for its effectiveness, it seems to have a good reputation.

I use the knightsbridge chin strap underneath my full face mask.  It works completely differently from other chin straps.  I'd call it jaw support.  Every other chin strap I tried pulled my lower jaw backwards, which is the exact problem I'm trying to correct.  This one rests with very little pressure underneath my jaw and pulls upward.  Highly recommend.
