Face masks

I've tried several and find they get in my vision, too hot and too unfcomfortable.

I have quite a small face too.

Can anybody recommend a brand or make or style that might be more comfy for me?

I thought about silk?

Thanks.

I have a small face too and wear spectacles and personally prefer the smaller shaped ones. It’s very individual what works so what works for me might not for you. I have a couple of fabric masks that seem to fit better than others. A shaped floral Plumo children’s one in linen, which at £10 for one was my most expensive ( tie knots in the ear straps) and a stripe slightly shaped French one by Paisie £6 which is cut quite small and has an adjustable nose, and filter slot I tried less expensive ones and they don’t fit me. I know others prefer the pleated type. None are comfortable in hot humid conditions! I’m sure there are many more that others will suggest.

Silk won’t work as the masks need to be washed at a high temp to kill bacteria/viruses etc. They’re spendy and would be ruined after one wash!

Have a look at the really soft one piece kids masks, I have one and they’re much more comfortable.

I've been wearing the gap ones which I bought for my children, but fit me pretty well- I'm 5'0" and in proportion.
I also have a small adult sized mask from stempunkwear which fits well and is two layers with pocket for a filter.

Can I ask which brand the kids masks you bought are?
