RE: Nasal pillows?
The last time I ordered a Swift FX, it came with S/M/L nasal pillows, and maybe even XS. There really isn't much to "fit". One Velcro strap behind your head, and a silicone strap across the top. Pick whichever set of pillows seems to fit best.

RE: Nasal pillows?
My experience with nasal pillows was they stretched my nostrils and made my nose bulbous. My nostrils stayed very large or flared. After 3 months using a regular nasal mask my nose is more like it used to be, but not 100%.

Yeah, I don't like them, but if the area around my nose gets carved up, I think they will be preferable to the nasal mask (Mirage FX). I am hoping this will be a relatively quick, temporary thing.

Off to Babe's Fried Chicken and then give a radio test.....
