c) 9" across by 6.5" down when the pleats are pulled open.


Please note: because pleating is not an exact science, minor variance may occur in the height of masks laying flat, but this does not affect fit or how wide they stretch from nose to chin.


HOW TO MEASURE

Compare the c) set of the measurements above with the two following face measurements:

1. across your face between the outer edges of the eyes and

2. down over your nose, mouth, and chin between the middle of your nose bridge and just below the chin bone.


TIP: if you don't have a soft tailor's tape, use a strip of paper, a piece of cloth, or a piece of string, then hold that material against a straight ruler. Just make sure if you stretch the string taut over your face you also stretch it taut along the ruler.

ESTIMATING QUALITY OF FIT

The mask will fit SNUGLY if your ACROSS measurement is 1-2" smaller than the mask width AND your DOWN measurement is 1-2" smaller than the mask length.

Ex. Your face measures about 6" across and 5.5" down, so the Adult mask, which measures 8" across will extend out 1" from the edge of each eye and go just about an inch below your chin.

The mask will fit LOOSELY if your ACROSS measurement is 3-4" smaller than the mask width AND your DOWN measurement is 2-3" smaller than the mask length.

The mask will fit TIGHTLY if your ACROSS measurement is equal to the mask width or 1" smaller than the mask width AND your DOWN measurement is less than 1" smaller than the mask length.

The mask will be TOO TIGHT if your ACROSS measurement is greater than the width of the mask AND your DOWN measurement is greater than the mask length.

The mask will be TOO LOOSE if the difference between your ACROSS measurement and the width of the mask is greater than 4" AND if the difference between your DOWN measurement and the length of the mask is greater than 3"
