I also wanted this mask to work.  In the beginning I had a high leak rate.  After using it for 3 weeks I finally get zero leaks.  It takes time to learn how to adjust it just right.  
Also according to their fit chart I was a medium,but the large size was the one that works for me.  Try all the sizes and be patient.  In order for me to use it I have to make the upper straps tight and not so much on the lower straps.

Do you think going to a Large from a Medium Wide cushion might work?

I've been using the Dreamwear nasal mask for a couple of years and was looking forward to the FFM as I hate having a hose in front of my face.
Like the nasal mask I found the sizing template said I needed a small cushion but found the medium to be better, so far I've only used it for one night and found it leaked a lot but I do have a beard and mustache so was to be expected. Unfortunately I had it too tight on the top straps and ended up with a sore noses so ditched it and went back to the nasal mask and haven't tried it a again as yet.

Allessio 77 I would definitely try the large size.  I also tried the mw but did not work for me.Did you buy the fit pack that has all the sizes included?

No, I already had the frame for the Dreamwear, so I just got the cushion and the new head straps.
I can get a Large when my 3 month Medicare supply train comes in...lol.

I am encouraged that you are suggesting this. I want this to work!!

Please remember to take discussions of a mask to the Main Forum vs here in the Review Forum. That way everyone can benefit.
