CPAP Masks for Women - A Better Choice for Women with Sleep Apnea
While men are at higher risk of sleep apnea than women, this condition knows no gender. That’s why RespShop offers a variety of CPAP masks for women for sale.
Full face, nasal, and nasal pillow masks–there are all kinds of masks designed for women and people assigned female at birth.
To help you select the right one from our catalog, we’ll answer the most common questions about a CPAP mask for women: why it’s better for you than other CPAP masks, how to choose one, and why you need to replace it regularly.
Benefits of Using a CPAP Mask for Women
Why should you get a CPAP mask for woman instead of a unisex model? Here are a few reasons:
Fits the Size of Your Head Better
Men, in general, have larger heads than women. That’s why the headgear of CPAP masks for women is designed to comfortably fit smaller heads.
Perfect Seal for Women’s Facial Features
Apart from the head size, the sizes of the cheeks, noses, brows, and chins of men and women differ. This kind of mask creates a better seal for women’s faces, preventing leaks and loosening of the headgear.
Allows Versatility for Different Hairstyles
Whatever hair type or length you have, you can keep your tresses from tangling or matting with this mask. It’s made to let you wear your hair over or under the headgear.
Lighter Than Other Masks
Your overall comfort is the key to CPAP compliance. By having a lightweight, well-fitting mask with a good seal, you can reap the many benefits of CPAP therapy.
How to Choose a CPAP Mask for Woman: Recommendations from RespShop Experts
Like most CPAP users, you might find it difficult to pick the right mask, especially when buying one online. Here are a few good starting points when shopping for a CPAP mask for women:
Even if a CPAP mask for woman will likely fit your head, the sizes of the headgear and mask cushion are still worth checking. The good news is: the products in this collection have convenient sizing guides, so you can see which ones will suit you best.
If you often sleep on your back, you can use any type of mask. A less obtrusive mask, like a nasal or nasal pillow mask, is ideal for side sleepers. Stomach sleepers will want to choose a mask with top-of-the-head connection in a smaller size.
The Way You Breathe
To prevent mouth-breathing, most sleep apnea patients use a full face mask or a nasal mask with a chin strap.
As with most purchasing decisions, it’s all a matter of preference. If you feel claustrophobic with a full face mask, a nasal or nasal pillow mask might just be what you need. If the air pressure from a nasal pillow mask is too uncomfortable, consider the two other mask types.

Why Do I Need to Regularly Replace CPAP Masks for Women?
Once a CPAP mask for women is damaged, deformed, or discolored, it’s best to replace it immediately. But it’s generally recommended to get a new one–even if it isn’t broken–every six months.
Over time, your mask will begin to display signs of wear and tear. It becomes loose and leaks air, the headgear weakens, and the mask cushion softens.
By replacing your mask regularly, you can ensure a comfortable fit, maintain proper mask hygiene, and make the most of your sleep apnea treatment.
