Help with Adjusting Dreamwear Nasal Pillows Mask

Help with Adjusting Dreamwear Nasal Pillows Mask
I have a Dreamwear mask with both cushions that I have only used infrequently.  How tight should straps be tightened using the nasal cushion--just so touching the nostrils or  little tighter which kind of squishes the nostrils?

The tips need to be in the nose ether the shoulders making the seal. Not real tight just firm enough so they stay in place. The only problem I ever had was the headgear slipping up over my head. They came up with some plastic wings that come down and really makes the mask [Image: 9fd7c927bf3e4940909babbf00e3f8ee?wid=420...large$]stay on.

Thank you Stacy. The few times I tried this set-up I think it was too tight. I'll do some experimenting.
