There are no dumb questions, only dumb answers Smile

Yes, the frame fits all, so you can just buy the cushion.
I think small mask comes with a slightly smaller headgear but its not a big difference.
Supplier #1 sells the whole set for US$99, cushion by itself is ~US$33.
Can't remember how much the delivery was to Down Under but they did have a "flat rate" so it may be worth "filling" the box with other goodies.

I got a spare set so that when I wash the headgear I have a new one ready to use and the washed one can dry properly.

Thanks Zeddy

I will get a medium cushion think that is the best solution and in the mean time I will loosen the top head gear strap, I think maybe it is is a bit tight.

Cheers.Sleep-well

Some great tips to get me started tonight to see if I can fix the problem, by reading your responses it looks like I need to go down a size in cushion which leads me to a new question. Does this meant that the frame is one size fits all and it is the cushion size that determines the s.m.l size? so that I can just buy the next size cushion down to fit in my existing frame. Hope that wasn't a dumb question but not sure.

Thanks again.Sleep-well
The answer is yes, you can buy the shell & cushion separately in the three sizes S-M & L. Supplier #8 for one has stock @ USD40. Another advantage of the Simplus mask.

I just googled the Amara mask and will study it later thanks.

Not too sure about the nose fitting think it would feel weird.

Last night I loosened the top head strap and it has made a difference already not that I have checked the data but fairly confident that it helped.

RE: Simplus FF sliding up
Amara View didn't cope well with high pressure ( my 95% is 19 - 20 cm H2O ).
It also gave me a incredibly dry mouth , the air inlet is pointed directly at the mouth and air discharged at high speed ...
Naturally YMMV Smile
