Since bodyweight is not necessarily an indicator of facial size or structure, we strongly recommend using the body weight indicator as a back up only if you are unable to measure your self or family members.
Bodyweight and face-size can differ hugely between people of all ages, body types, cultures,and genders, this is by no means a fail-safe way to choose your mask size.
Please be aware of the following issues with using the bodyweight indicator alone when selecting your mask:
- Your weight maybe not be typical; you may have more muscle mass or perhaps weigh heavier/ lighter than average, but it doesn’t affect the size of your face.
- Body types (ectomorphic, endomorphic, and mesomorphic) are very difficult to factor in.
- Your height and weight may not correlate at all with face sizes – this can often be seen in very tall people with ectomorphic body types.
