Huge bag under eye
#1
Huge bag under eye
Overall, I'm liking my Amara View except for one thing: A huge sagging bag under my left eye.
I have cushy covers on all straps, but still have strap marks and this eye baggage. I have the straps as loose as possible without leaks. This bag hangs around all day  Thumbs-down-1

RE: Huge bag under eye
That's strange...the mask models never have bags under their eyes!   Dont-know

It seems you are doing all the right things, but still have strap marks.  That can impair circulation of the lymph system, and that might be the cause of accumulation under the eyes. Cool compresses or may help and there are all kinds of products sold for under-eye bags.  Many people find the Amara View very comfortable, and it may just be a matter of finding "that" adjustment you need , but keep an eye out for other mask models that may work even better with loose straps.   I assume you have eliminated nasal pillows as a possibility?

My alternate mask is the Swift FX for her nasal pillow mask, which I love, but I'm a mouth breather. I have to tape my mouth closed. No chin strap or cervical collar keeps the air from escaping my lips. 

I want this to work, but don't want to look like I lost a fight.
