Mask for a "wider" mouth
#1
I am on an F&P Simplus medium mask. However I feel as though my mouth is at the very edge of the mask where if my mouth twitches a leak will happen. The next size up is the same width. I have the first 30 days to change the type of mask I use and I wondered if anyone had any suggestions.

You might like a nasal pillow mask (not actually a mask, more like and "adapter" for your nose.

There's much less surface area to leak, so depending on your face, it might even seal better.

Masks are very personal. Lots of people go through a half dozen or more before they find one they really like.

If you're uncomfortable exchange it for something else. Some people can go through a dozen different masks before they find one they like.
I was lucky - it only took two.
I agree with the suggestion to try nasal pillows. They work great for me.
