You might want to look at one of the Resmed Airfit products.
The Airfit P10 is a nasal pillow mask and you probably won't want that.
The Airfit N10 and F10 are masks that cover your nose and mouth in a small package, much smaller than a full face mask.
I use the P10 and have an F10 back up in case I ever get a bad cold and need to breath through my mouth
Great. Thanks. I will look into those!
Wait. The N10 is a nasal mask, isn't it?
And the F10
Is about the same size as my current mask, isn't it? (See my signature).
My experience with mask sizes is that generally there is no change in the width of the mask at the mouth with different sizes. The sizes for full face masks seem to be based on the distance from the deepest part of the bridge of your nose to the indentation between your lower lip and your chin. You might look into a mask that is not a "for her" model. May give you more room at the mouth.
If you want to side sleep, you can sleep with your head on the edge of the regular pillow and the mask hanging out in the air.
I've been a mouth breather most my life. Have used FFM's since I started CPAP in 2003. Have had difficulty maintaining seal at times. I found my solution using an RespCARE Hybrid FFM. It's a FFM with a much smaller mouth area to seal. Due to design I don't need to use a chin strap to keep mouth closed. Might be worth taking alook at.
Love your family, treat your friend(s) well, and don't waste your time. Everything else is just so much BS.
Check out the Amara View while your at it.
to set a mask, with the straps on the lose side of tight, with air flowing pull the mask away form your face a little to let the silicon seal inflate and then let it go. the mask should "float" on the silicon seal so that the seal conforms to your face. If mine leaks at a spot (identified my slightly pushing the mask with a finger) I will pull just that part and get the seal to better inflate.
Edge of pillow works for me for side sleeping as I used to do this before masking up anyway.
Been trying the "hanging off the pillow" thing...hasn't worked. Moves mask and I get leaks.
I already have the "For Her" model. (as I said, my signature expresses that).
Was lucky to get a mask fitting today. The tech was kinda rushed so I forgot that I wanted to try a hybrid. I don't know that I really got the most time/attention I needed but I did get to try the Amara. Flimsy, sticky plastic piece with a large nose hole leaked at the nose too easily.
Tried the mask I currently have but in a "Small", and that felt better. As Payton said, the area between crease in chin and bridge of nose: apparently mine is kind of small, so I'm hoping that will work. So I took that mask.
I'll keep in mind the RespCare Hybrid if this doesn't work.
