The popular DreamWear Nasal Mask for nose breathers now has the upgraded new headgear with arms which is a vast improvement to the original. This mask was the first from any manufacturer having the hose attached at the top of the head keeping the hose well out of the way, and using the mask with the Hose Lift is a perfect combination, as the hose lift take the weight of the hose and allows freedom to move from side to side without dragging on the top of the mask.
There is the option of purchasing the DreamWear with the original 'under-the-nose' cushion, the new silicone pillows and for a little while longer, the now discontinued original gel pillows. Additionally, the mask can be converted into a full face version for people who occasionally struggle to nose breathe with just the additional purchase of the full face headgear and mask cushion.
Reviews of this mask are mainly 4 and 5 Stars, which is excellent for any mask!

This DreamWear Nasal Mask is the original unique design for nose breathers, and Philips were the first company to launch a mask with the hose at the top of the head, and this was also the first mask introducing the innovative way the air is pushed directly into the mask via the tubular mask frame. Due to its success Philips then brought out the DreamWear Full Face Mask for mouth breathers which is just as popular.
The mask is 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!
The upgraded headgear with arms is proving to be a positive improvement to the original headgear. This mask really does feel so light and almost as if nothing is on the face!
The way the nasal cushion seals in the 'under-the-nose version is a real bonus, but for patients who prefer pillows inside the nose, there is also the option for those instead.
Nasal bridge sores will not be a problem with this mask!
The fact that all sizes of under-the-nose cushion or nasal pillows are included in the fitpack means that selecting the wrong size won't be an issue!
Amazed at the way that when lying on the side the air is simply directed through the tubular frame on the opposite side. We have also carried out testing with a CPAP Manometer, proving there is no pressure reduction when sleeping on our side.
Due to the hose connecting directly onto the mask frame at the top of the head, the hose is unobtrusive, and especially if used with the Hose Lift which angles the hose tube from above the head too and is helpful for stopping the hose dragging on the mask, thus causing leaks. (For people who don't wish to have their hose above them, it may be helpful to purchase a Hose Strap and Clip to attach the hose to their nightwear which also helps prevent the hose dragging on the mask).
Easy to clean and re-assemble.
A huge benefit for some people is that as well as swapping between the 'under-the-nose' cushion and pillows, the mask can be converted to the full face version for people who occasionally need to mouth breathe (such as when they have a cold or nasal stuffiness). The DreamWear Mask Mouth Cushion can easily be attached to the silicone tubular mask frame. However, the headgear is not the same on both masks, so a separate DreamWear Full Face Headgear will be needed for using it with the mouth cushion, but this will still make it cheaper than purchasing a separate mask.
If a person lays on their side and closes off one side of the tubing, will the mask still provide therapy? Will it create a pressure spike?
The mask will continue to provide the prescribed therapy. Every other mask on the market operates with one tube running to the cushion and this mask operates in the same way. No increase of pressure or noise will occur.
With the tubing right next to the ear, will DreamWear Mask be noisier than other masks?
From a sound level perspective, the DreamWear Mask is quiet. However, since the airflow is located closer to the ears with this design and not routing downward in front of the patient, some people may notice the airflow noise more than a traditional mask. For most patients the experience is quiet and comfortable with the unique design offering more freedom of movement. However, since this is such a different design, it may take some people some time to get use to the difference in the noise. It’s not louder - simply different. (We at Hope2Sleep noticed the 1st night of use the mask did sound louder, but after a few nights the noise seemed to disappear!).
There are 3 sizes of frames. How do I choose the right size?
Always start with the medium frame. If the mask is too small, the frame will sit too close to the eyes. If the mask is too big, it will sit too close to the ears. Please refer to the quick start guide or instructions manual for pictures and a thorough description. In most cases, it will be obvious if a different size frame is needed. However, if there are leaks at night or the mask seems to move too much, a different size frame and/or cushion should be tried.
"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."
SINGLE SIZE OPTIONS:-
Medium Mask Frame which fits most people.
All Cushion Sizes - Small, Medium, Medium-wide and Large.

Once one of the DreamWear masks above are supplied or bought, the type of cushion (under-the-nose or nasal pillows) can be used with any of them as they simply attach to the same frame.
For smaller or larger frames these are available separately.

My favourite CPAP mask (and I’ve tried most)! Natalie was absolutely fabulous - she posted the mask out the same day - what a great person & service.

Thanks for your kind comments about Natalie, and we agree she's a real asset to the charity 😊
I have been using a face mask for 2 yrs since diagnosis. Of the three full face I’ve tried the Amara View was my favourite despite the upward exhaust air flow. I have now had an ENT op to reduce enormous inferior turbinates and the surgeon suggested after recovery I try a nasal mask. I felt I now can sleep with my mouth closed so bought the Dream Wear silicone pillows mask. Well it’s wonderful- the best mask for me, so unobtrusive, comfortable and minimal but doesn’t slide around, no strap marks. I can also wear night cream once again (it made the full face leak) I like the above head hose attachment. It does feel ‘fragile’ at the pillow junction so I tend to leave headset intact and wash through from the top each day. My AHI was already under 5 postop but now down to under 3. I started at 68! Very pleased and feel this will make a good long term benefit to my health.
So pleased for you to hear you're now able to nose breathe, and that you've found the DreamWear Nasal to be a good mask for you 😊
I have been searching high and low for a mask that works for me. So many masks leak air into my eyes, create sores around my nose and create pressure on my cheeks. This mask fits perfectly for me. It fits perfectly around the nose and doesn't leak. It doesn't create any pressure sores lying on the pillow. It's great that the hose goes in at the top of the head (and not on the tip of the nose) which is a lot more comfortable and easier for turning over in the night. I would highly recommend this mask for its comfort and fit.
We're always so pleased to hear when patients have finally found the 'right' mask for them 😊
I am disappointed by this mask. The small nasal cushion broke the first time I used it, you quickly replaced this, thank you.Phillips says that the medium frame should fit most people without giving any way of measuring for the right size. I have been using a full face mask which worked without leaks, but it had to be tight which was uncomfortable. The dreamerwear is very comfortable, but it leaks because the frame is too big for me. I have a small head and completely bald. So when I move my head a lot of the time it leaks so I have to adjust the mask to stop the leak. Is there any way for me to make this mask work better?
Thanks for your review Chris and we can honestly say it was the 1st time we'd come across a cushion breaking when still new. Glad we got this sorted though with a replacement 😊We too wish all the other frame sizes were in the fitpacks as many of us need either a small or a large, and incidentally Philips do provide the small and medium frames in the full face version!! It's frustrating and we do encourage people to send us any unwanted spares they don't need so that we can help people saved the £50 for the frames. Emailing you about this....
This is my first mask, so doing lots of experimenting with it. What is great is that it comes with various sizes so can figure out best fit. As it happens I seem to be an odd inbetween size. The under nose pillows are good design and quality. I ended up settling on the full mask mask option (bought separately as accessory). The top of head design for the hose is great when used with the hose lift. Would recommend.

I have now tried the full face mask, nose and face mask and now the nasal mask. By far the most comfortable for me is the nasal mask, its easier to fit, easy to sleep in and comfortable to wear. I've started to use the mouth strips to prevent me from mouth breathing during the night and this combination works well.
Good to hear the nasal mask verson is working well for you, as whenever possible nose breathing is healthier 😊
I’ve used the Dreamwear mask with cushions quite successfully for a while but as I suffer from a ‘dry eye’ condition I thought I would try the new silicon pillows in the hope of reducing occasional leaks etc. Success! The pillows are very comfortable, the vent seems to direct away from my eyes and doesn’t seem to be as strong, (I am always conscious of a slight ‘breeze’ upwards from the vent on my cushion ) and my dry eye is not as bad.I’ve tried a few different masks over the years and find this one with the pillows is the best of the bunch
This is great to hear Angela and believe it's the first review for the new silicone pillows, so is sounding very positive 😊
Excellent product, ordered small nose piece which came attached to medium head gear. Should have been given the option to order small head gear. Have had to pay extra for a small one which then has not come with cloth straps. Am struggling to get the new small headgear with the small nose piece.
Unfortunately Philips Respironics do not supply the small frame (which is what you mean when you say 'headgear') and even worse is the frame is very expensive 🙁 When purchasing the frame separately the fabric wraps aren't supplied (only with the mask) but if you ever need replacement frame covers please look at our mask strap covers which are much cheaper. Glad you like the mask though.
After being diagnosed with severe obstructive sleep Apnea and being told i would have to wear a mask at night i was totally floored im very claustrophic and the thought of my face being covered was so frightening but one of the Sleep Clinic nurse came out to see me bringing the machine with a nasal cushion ....it took a while to get used to it but its not restricting and so comfortable to use ..its soft and doesn't leave any marks on my face ...
Yes, it can be frightening at first, but once we start wearing the CPAP equipment and realise how much better we feel, it becomes 2nd nature. Pleased you've found the DreamWear mask suits you 😊
Disappointing, the recommended pressure in my machine make the machine very noisy, it’s probably best suited to low pressure c pap machines
Sad to hear this as many people get good success with high pressures. A good seal is needed though and often it's the mask frame rather than the cushion that's to blame. Please contact us if you feel we can help.

Delivery charges are worked out automatically by weight and you can clearly see the delivery charges before making a payment. On the rare occasion delivery charges are miscalculated by the website, a refund will be sent, as it is not our policy to make money on postage charges and neither do we add the cost of delivery into the price and offer so-called 'free delivery' like some sites and Ebay pressurise sellers to do!
Wherever possible with larger parcels, we try to re-use boxes to keep shipping costs down and protect the environment.

Important for International Orders
We can ship most products internationally, but all prices are in UK British Pounds and if paying by debit or credit card the bank will automatically convert to the current conversation rate. Likewise, if you choose the Paypal option, they will convert into your currency for you as payment is made.
International orders are sent via tracked Airmail, and whilst we're happy to ship internationally, we cannot be held responsible for any delays at Customs at your end, or charges that may be added in your own country, such as customs fees and import tax on delivery, which are determined by your country’s import laws and are beyond our control. Therefore, it is the customer’s responsibility to pay these charges, and certain courier companies will not be able to deliver the goods to you without pre-payment of any charges. From our experience, it appears to be randomised as to which parcels incur extra charges, but please know that all accompanying paperwork is filled in correctly when shipping and there is nothing more we can do, as much as we'd like to.If you purchase from us out of the UK or you move to another country after purchasing products, please be aware that the warranty for CPAP machines, masks and parts from the manufacturers are under warranty with the manufacturer based in the UK, so you will be responsible for sending the product back to us and will need to pay postage to get the product back to you after exchange or repair, as the manufacturer will not pay for shipping in any country outside of the UK.
Masks, CPAP machines and and most other products are exempt from a refund or exchange unless faulty due to health and hygiene issues - as stated in our 'Terms and Conditions', and in particular due to the risk of cross contamination as they cannot be re-sold.

Unopened (sealed) products in their original packing can be returned within 14 days for a refund of the product cost, but the purchaser is to pay the return postage, and we would advise retaining proof of postage.
