How to measure for a mask

Masks, in order to be effective, need to have a snug fit.

  • Most men will wear an adult large.

  • Most women and bigger kids, an adult small.

  • Most children 10 and under, kids size.


You can confirm sizing by following these sizing instructions.


  1. Using a flexible tape measure, starting 1 inch from either ear, wrap the tape horizontally from there across the bridge of your nose until stopping 1 inch from opposite ear.

  2. Take the tape measure and again, starting at the bridge of your nose, measure vertically down to just below your chin.

  3. The first set of inches listed next to each size is the vertical measurement. The second set of inches is the horizontal measurement.


  • Adult large - 7.5 inches x 11.5 inches

  • Adult small and big kids - 6.5 inches x 10 inches

  • Kids (small children over age 2) -  5.5 inches x 9 inches

Got it? Great! You're ready to order.

How to wear your mask

  • Wear your reversible mask looped around your ears or use the removable back covered elastic neck piece which keeps the mask secure and comfortable.

  • Slip the mask over your face, adjust to make sure it covers your nose, mouth and chin. 

  • Pinch the copper wire nose piece to conform to your nose.

Your mask is reversible. Make sure to wash before you reverse sides.
