mask primer fitting instructions worked
Yesterday I clicked on Mask Primer which is a link I found under Bon Jour's signature titled Mask Primer This instructional article written by a board member goes step by step in how to get your mask leak free and is located in Forum WIKI.  Yesterday afternoon my boyfriend and I followed his instructions explicitly.  The final fit was much looser than I had been wearing mine.  I had been having large leaks with my Dreamwear Full Face mask so I was excited to see if this fit would help.  My leak graph showed only one large leak the last two hours of the night. The deep mask mark I always woke up with on my right cheek was barely visible. I am still reading Sleepyhead for Beginners to try and figure out what happens to cause most of my events and all my graphs to react during the last two hours of my sleep night.  It took two of us to do the mask fit and I don't think I could have done it myself.  I am sure the poster writing the mask primer did the fit alone, so it can be done by someone more skilled than I am.

Haley,
There will come a time when you will be able to put your mask on blindfolded....well maybe not. Smile

bonjour’s mask primer is very good. It seems like most folk want to tighten their mask as much as possible, but this sometimes causes more leaks.
