Sizing Cushion

  1. Familiarise yourself with the cushion-sizing template provided and the cushion sizes available.
  2. Hold the sizing template under your nose, and use it to help determine the most suitable cushion size. Ideally, the outer edge of your nose should sit on the grey band in the centre of the coloured margins.
  3. Select the matching cushion and try it on your face for comfort and fit.

Sizing Frame

  1. Use the frame-sizing template provided as a guide to help you choose the correct frame.
  2. If the mask frame falls back over your head or sits too close to your ears, it is too large. Try a smaller frame.
  3. If the mask frame falls forward over your head or sits too close to your eyes, it is too small. Try a larger frame.
  4. A well sized frame will sit centred on your head, and is neither too close to your eyes or ears.
