This new DreamWear 'Under-the-Nose' Nasal Mask is a unique design, and the first mask to also introduce the innovative way the air is pushed directly into the cushion via the tubular mask frame. Early reviews are very positive and the mask is sure to be welcomed by people who like to wear as minimal a mask as possible on the face. In fact Philips Respironics have described it 'like wearing nothing at all' and comments from some of the users are endorsing this statement - certainly in comparison to other masks they've used!
"Like Wearing Nothing At All...
...and designed to provide many of the benefits of nasal and pillows masks, DreamWear allows patients to have the best of both mask types. Its remarkable design directs airflow through the frame so patients can sleep comfortably. The minimal contact, under-the-nose cushion prevents red marks, discomfort or irritation in the nostrils or on the nose bridge.
Freedom Of Movement
DreamWear users experienced more freedom of movement throughout the night than with their current prescribed mask. Unrestricted by cumbersome tubing, patients can sleep in any position they desire – on their stomach, side, or back.
Exceptional Fit And Comfort
Users stated that DreamWear was more comfortable, appealing and had a better fit than their prescribed mask. DreamWear’s soft, flexible silicone frame and fabric wraps provide a soft touch on the patient’s cheek."
Included in the pack is:
For people who need a smaller or larger frame, this is available as an optional extra.
Additional replacement Headgear, Fabric Frame Wraps and the Nasal Cushion can also be purchased separately.
Thank you so much for your help and advice. You were right it is such a comfortable mask, I wish I had bought one ages ago.

So pleased to hear the Dreamwear mask is working well for you Geoffrey :)
I have recently been diagnosed with sleep apnoea. I had a full nasal mask but didn't like it so I bought this latest mask as it seemed less obstructive. I found it really noisy & leaks a lot in my eyes so have to wear an eye mask. I didn't realise I could get it on the NHS so quite annoyed. Can't wear it more than 3 hrs. Don't sleep at all in CPAP masks. The doctor said wearing it for 3 hrs is fine so I am swoping around my face masks. I now have 3. Losing weight so hope I don't have to do this for very long. Absolutely shattered messing about with masks & trying to sleep. As soon as I take them off I fall fast asleep.
I'm using Dreamwear mask for about three weeks now. It's much more comfortable then my previous mask. I had to tighten my old mask very much to have a good seal, it wasnt very comfortable and I woke up with mask imprint on my face. I have straps on Dreamwear mask pretty loose and it has no leaks at all. I can barely feel it on my face. The hose connector on top of head is very good when you change position during sleep. Quick release on the hose is very practical when I need disconnect mask for cleaning every morning. Im realy very satisfied.
This mask has made such a difference to my life, l cannot speak to highly of it. With the tube coming from on top of your head, it doesn't matter which side of the bed you have your machine, you can turn any way you want. Not having to stay on your back all the time is absolute heaven ! The soft plastic tubing is so comfortable, so unlike the wide strapping of other masks. With my old mask, l couldn't wait to get the thing off, usually about 5 am. With this mask, l still have it on at 8, all comfy and cosy. I sleep sooo much better than l have for years !! Worth every penny !!And the delivery was so quick .Lovely lovely lovely !!
Wonderful to hear such a positive review that's made a huge difference Delyse :)
I took a chance on the Dreamwear Nasal mask even though it's expensive. For years I've used a full face mask and was worried that a simple nose mask would work for me. I'm so pleased I did. I'm astonished that I've taken to it from night one. It has been plain sailing after the initial getting used to the slight difference in noise and getting the seating under the nose adjusted to avoid very minor initial air leak. I had slight soreness at the end of my nose for a few nights but I've loosened the mask straps just slightly and that has improved it. Now I wouldn't go back to my old face mask unless I had to. Keeping the mask clean is easy with just warm soapy water. I've even turned down the machine air pressure from 6 to 4. I've also found that having the air tube on the top of my head and the soft rubber nature of the mask a real improvement for movement. I also think it looks better. I liked the company `youtube' videos on using the mask. I will invest in a second mask to ensure I have a 'just in case' spare. I'm well pleased.
I've been using this mask for about 7 months, and I love it! I learned to breathe though my nose, but still found some of the masks difficult. Then, I found this one. I find I have to fasten my hair up at night, and use that to anchor this mask to my head, but I think that's because I have so much hair and sleep on my stomach. I also have nerves trapped in my neck which causes me to move due to pain. However, this mask is just AMAZING! I can hardly feel it, and it leaves no, or virtually no marks! I was getting deep wrinkles from my full face masks, that never disappeared. No worries on that now. Even better, I have just had some operations on my eye, and I have been able to continue with my Cpap with no trouble. There is no way I could have done with any of my previous masks, not even the Amara View. If you can nose breathe, try this mask! Amazing!

Mask stays still no matter how much I move, I can sleep without a problem even on my stomach
This review is on behalf of my husband. He has used a variety of crap masks, nose and full face, he has never really complained about wearing them, he just appreciates they give him a healthy nights sleep but as the person who lays next to him they clearly had their flaws.. Ie some sound like I am sleeping next to Darth Vader, then there the noisy air leaks where I had to try and adjust the mask on his face in the middle of the night, and those nose indentations he has on face in the morning. Recently his mask broke so had to buy a new one asap. We saw this dreamwear mask and wasn't sure if it was a risk or a brilliant purchase. The previous reviews helped in deciding to go ahead and buy. we are so glad we bought this mask, I can confirm despite doubts it was a brilliant purchase. After wearing the mask my husband could not praise it enough, despite never complaining before he said he couldn't believe they difference, it was so comfortable and he had the best nights sleep. His face was also free from indentations. I liked it too, unlike other masks this mask had little to no noise ( no more Darth Vader), There was no air leaks either. My husband did say however that for him it was a little more noisy. I believe this is because unlike other masks this mask travels up closer to the ears. I should add this noise did not bother him in any way. He has been using the mask for approximately 4 weeks and still praises it and stating he is getting better sleeps. He said now he has this mask he wouldn't go back to wearing other masks. To add we found the instructions easy to follow to insure a good fit. It is very easy to dismantled and clean too. Another bonus is it's easier to pack away for travel. My husband has to frequently stay in hospital and it was a bit of an annoyance trying to fit all the gear into it's carry bag. This is far easier to pack. We would highly recommend this mask,. It gets full marks from us.

What a fabulous review thanks Jane - told also from the partner's perspective, and so glad the DreamWear is working well for you both. Kath
I received the nasal mask this morning at 11am, I set it up straight away,btw, very easy to do!....I laid down to try it out, and here I am now it's 14.45, I woke up to the phone ringing.....didn't realise I had fallen asleep, I feel refreshed and more focused than usual, and I am looking forward to bedtime, the mask didn't feel like I was wearing anything and my nose is not sore like usual from my other nasal mask.
Love the title of your review Anna 'hope at last' and 'hope' the mask is still proving successful.
This mask really is the Dream (I see I'm not the first reviewer to use a pun ha ha). I'm amazed I can still sleep on my side too - the inventor deserves an award.
