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.
This nasal mask is extremely lightweight & with the padding supplied for the head piece making this a very comfortable mask to wear with a good seal on the nose.

Great to hear Susan, and I wish I could use the DreamWear myself, but I'm a mouth breather. Kath
I have found this mask to be comfortable. I particularly like the tubing attaching to the top of the head rather than in front - much easier if you turn over during the night. The two vents direct air away from the user so I have not found it too noisy after having settled down. I initially had some air leakage but now I have become used to the different nasal cushion design I rarely need to adjust the mask during the night. I suspect that a small mask frame might fit me better, but I just about manage with the medium frame and the small cushion, so having paid out so much already I don't feel inclined to spend any more. For the majority of users I am sure that the frame supplied would be fine. On the whole a very good design and an improvement over previous masks that I have tried.
I use Respironics Nuance Pro, and tried this for 2 nights. For me it was not as effective, both on clinical (tired) and machine reported AHI, so went back to the Nuance pro. However I have high pressures, 22/14 on BiPAP, so suspect better on lower pressures and CPAP (?) Good idea, and I may try again. Fair bit more comfortable, sits better, less nasal blast up nose. Promising but not quite for me.
This mask is fantastic. No more wrapping my head up, no more leaks, no more irritation on my skin. I truly am amazed. 1 slight flaw.... don't wear if you are suffering from a cold. Other than that I can't fault it. The support received from Hope2Sleep has been amazing. Friendly people that literally bend over backwards to help you in every way possible. Living with Sleep Apnoea can be difficult, Its nice to know there are people like this around that not only want to help but know exactly what you are living with. 5 stars for the mask and 11 out of 10 for the amazing support and service!
Love that the mask is perfect for you Leanne, and thank you so much for recognising the passion we have in helping our fellow sufferers 🙂
I was using the wisp mask before getting this one, and found it was leaving a very noticeable mark on my face. I did some research on this and found people were giving the dreamwear mask great reviews, so decided to give it a go. It's not cheap when you have to convert to euro but it has made a massive difference to my face and sleep. I now find I am sleeping much better as it's not a bit annoying, there's no build up of condensation and it leaves no marks on my face. In fact you don't even realise you are wearing a mask. Would highly recommend the dreamwear mask, and well worth the money after all. Hope2sleep are also a good site to buy from, with reasonable quick delivery.
So pleased to hear you've found the DreamWear so much better for you Marguerite :)
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.
