Curious, another company has decorated covers for machine does anyone know if their is a company that does for this machine. Don't want to use stickers, difficult to remove or change.

WELCOME! to the forum.!
I know they have decorative skins for different machines but I haven't used them. I wondered if they wouldn't be difficult to change?
Hang in there for more answers to your question and best of luck to you.

Also wanted to say that I purchased the cpap pillow(cost too much) but I am side and stomach sleeper and it is difficult with mask on, I believe it is by Contour. But I am have less problems sleeping and my husband states he can tell difference, less getting up less air leakage in middle of night.
I do find wearing mask annoying to be attached to hose but otherwise I wake up catching my breath. So must wear mask. Don't like others know I have this problem or see me with mask. I have used a machine for about 6 years and did not use it much the first several years until my husband complained could not sleep next to me and I started catching my breath in middle of the night and waking up not being able to breath. I really wish I did not have to deal with this.

Beverlylynn1, CPAP either saves our lives or reduces the risk of getting illness's like depression, diabeties, heart attack, stroke, etc, etc. I can understand you not wanting to tell people but it is an illness and something you can't help. I don't go out of my way to tell people but the majority of my friends that know I have it are amazed how much it has improved my life and want to know all about it, they are so interested. We should not be embarrassed. A number of people have been for sleep studies that I have spoken to and found they have sleep apnea including my sisters who has had depression and fibromyagia for years and years. She has only been on her CPAP for 6 months and her symptoms are starting to lift. I feel I have given my sister a gift by talking to her about it and encouraging her to go for her sleep study, I was so certain she had it and would benefit from it, I paid for her sleep study and bought her machine for her. I hope one day you will change you mind about it.

Sometime in the future you may want to try a hybrid mask. You may find it more comfortable.
I'm also a side-stomach sleeper and bought a papillow. It helped a lot, but when I switched to nasal pillows I was even happier.
Since you have a full face mask the closest you can get to nasal pillows is a hybrid mask.

From what I could find on the Internet, only the S9 has skins available. I couldn't find any decorative covers or skins for the System One.
