Truth is, some masks "fit" better than others. They all take a bit of adjusting before they're tolerable, i.e., adjust bendable portion over bridge of nose, pull mask pleats open to cover chin if desired, or leave the pleats closed and the mask as small as possible, yet over nose and mouth.

Do you work in surgery, special procedures, or just wear them for iso cases? Perhaps some of your co-workers have suggestions. -- D
