Patience.

And understanding that the mask you are asking about may not be the one for you. Nor may be the one after that. Or even the one after that.

I am an active sleeper who uses the Nuance Pro. I use a chin strap to help with mouth breathing and found that by putting the Nuance headgear under the chin strap it will make the Nuance a great deal harder to dislodge when I move around. It did take a couple of nights to get everything adjusted. I haven't had a large leak since I stumbled upon this combination.

I had the opportunity to try out about 4 masks before I had to buy my setup. I chose the DreamWear, but in hind sight (which everyone knows is 20/20) it is not the perfect mask as I had thought. I went back to the P10's which are a minimal design type and have my leaks at almost nil. Good luck getting the right mask as I've heard it can be the most difficult part of the whole process.
