This listing is for a Full size Woman adorable floral print 3 layered mask. If you have to wear one, it might as well be cute! :)
We sew our masks using 100% quilting cotton for the outer and inner layer and we sandwich in between those layers a lightweight 100% Non Woven polyester interfacing. We use a thinner interfacing so it's not AS hot, but please note that if you are not in ac, it will be warm. I work in an air conditioned office, and for that kind of a condition I find it to be very comfortable.
The inner layer of cotton is sewn in a pocket fashion, so in case you wanted to add your own filter, you could do so.
There is also sewn in an approximately 4 inch long inner nose wire pocket so you can add the soft Chenille Pipe Cleaner covered wire we include with your mask, or you can add your own (please remove when you wash or you will find it stuck to something else :D ).
The elastic ear loops are not sewn into the mask, but there is a pocket that it is threaded through in case you wanted to remove the elastic that I tie in with your own. The elastic that I include is a round 1/4" type. I myself find it to be quite comfortable :) I measure out 7" and tie a knot close to the end then hide the knot in the pocket. I also back stitch pretty much all stressor points to make sure it's not going to break on you. If you find your mask creeping down your face your elastic ear loops may be too long, it should be sealed to your face. If you find that the case you may need to knot your ear loops a little tighter. 7" seems to fit most people but if you think you need it a little longer please put in the notes how long you would like it and if you want me to just leave it loose for you to tie yourself.
I cannot guarantee the sizing on the mask as everyone's face is different. However this size for women and teens will fit most - but it's kind of like the one size fits all labels on nightgowns :D
I do offer a size bigger in some prints (if it's available I will list it as such). I may have some prints available to do this but if it's not listed it would be a special order.
My face is fuller with a pronounced nose and I generally wear the women's mask, it doesn't go under my chin all the way, but hits right at the bottom, it feels sealed when I wear it. Because of this i never tried the men's size until right before i listed these! Lol it actually fit over my nose and hit below the chin. If you choose this option and find it just a tad bit too large, be aware as it is cotton it will shrink a tiny bit then fit even better.
When I measure from the top part to the bottom of the women's general size, it measures 5 1/2", which measurement of course is going to vary as I am machine sewing so it may be off just a tiny bit and after washing it may shrink a little. My friends that have a bit smaller face/nose finds it to be perfect for them :)
My face with a soft tape measure going from the top of my nose where the mask starts stretching down until it hits right above/on my chin with the regular women's mask measures 5 1/8". With the fuller size mask it measures 5 3/4". Of course your nose may be a different size from mine so this is just a general idea. Please refer to the picture above to see what i mean.
If you notice a little bit of the inner part of the mask showing on the bottom, it's because I make sure to keep the inner lining as flat as possible when I'm top stitching it so that when you wear it, it will be a bit more resistant to being sucked into your mouth or nostrils, just be aware that means the inner lining may show a bit at the bottom of the front.
Sorry so much info, it's really important to me that you find your mask comfortable!
