I have a great nasal mask, the ResMed Airfit N30. 2 issues, I’m a mouth breather and have to wear a chinstrap. I wanted to try a full face so I’ve tried the Airfit F20 both for her and the regular in size small. They are too big. When I put the For Her mask on, it goes almost to the bottom of my chin rather than under the lip. If I push it up, it’s too far above the bridge of my nose. The masks both leaked so of course that stopped after tightening the straps but it hurt. Before I bug my RT again for a refit, does anyone have any suggestions? I looked at kids masks but the only one I could find that is full face goes all the way up above your eyes. Thank you!

I tried an F20 but gave up on it. I now use the P10 with mouth taping. Have you considered the new Airfit F30? There is also the quite similar full face Dreamware mask. It has the hose on the top while the F30 has it in the normal location.
