Face mask fitting is a personal issue. Even if a certain mask fits many people, it doesn’t mean that it will fit you. Just like buying a pair of shoes, you can’t really tell until you actually put it on and try.
But unlike buying a pair of shoes, no shop will let you try a new mask unless you have bought it. Once you open the pack, you can not return the product because of obvious hygiene reasons.
We have created a downloadable paper dummy – the “Totobobo simulator” – for you to try out and see if the Totobobo mask will fit your face and your family members. The simulator is a full-scale dummy of the actual Totobobo mask, which can be used to test for the right size (though it has no filters).
Furthermore, you can trim the simulator, just like cutting the actual mask to check how it can fit better for smaller faces. It is especially useful for people who do not want to damage their mask unnecessarily.
Now just download the “Totobobo-mask-simulator“, print as many copies as you need, experiment with different sizes and cuts and see which one fits the best.
Here is a step-by-step illustration:
After 3 simple steps, you have your very own simulator!
Now it’s time to have fun testing the fit. If it is too big, just cut it smaller. If you cut it too small, you can just make another one!
The positioning of the lines is comparable to the real thing, you can follow the lines to get M, S or XS sizes, or even any size in between.
However, a simulator is not the real thing. Especially around the nose bridge area, the paper simulator is flat and the real Totobobo mask has a 3D curved profile which fits a human face far better.
