Dreamwear Full facemask vs Resmed F30i

Dreamwear Full facemask vs Resmed F30i
I’m a side sleeper. I’m getting leaks periodically throughout the night with the dream wear full mask. I have a narrow face and I’m using the medium size. Starting off the night it’s fine I’ve heard the Res Med F30i is better. Finding it cheap isn’t easy. I saw the dream wear mask on Amazon for 11 bucks.  So my question is which mask is better for side sleepers
CA and OA decided to call HYOP and the 3 of them crashed RERA's place, and then the 4 of them decided to call Large Leak to meet in an Unclassified location while Rice95 had the best night of his life.


Bed         best sleep I've ever had...

RE: Dreamwear Full facemask vs Resmed F30i
I have the f30i   I am a side sleeper and I almost bury my face in the pillow.   I have tried the F30, F20 and the F30i.   They all leak and blow cold air into my eyes.  Air in your eyes is not good for cataracts.  I have ordered a dreamwear FFM, in small.  I have trouble with the sizes of standard headwear.standard.  I ordered a small in resmed for f30i, it still is slipping and leaking.

For me the correct size is a small-wide in the F30i, which I did not originally realize was an option, as it did not come in the starter pack. So, you may want to consider it if the small is too small and the medium is too long.

Update Sept 2022
I’ve had great luck with the Dreamwear medium FFM as I’ve worn it over time and adjusted the straps. I also mark the Velcro with sharpie. It will shrink a little when you wash so adjust accordingly. Don’t over tighten ! That will cause leaks too. 
Somewhere between tight and loose …I call it a comfortable snug fit.
