Wearing a mask when going outside is now a way of life. But if you’re a large person with a chunky face, large head or a thick beard, finding the right fit for you can be a bit of a struggle.
Fortunately, many designers and mask brands have recognized this, and have decided to create masks for people who need larger sizes. Both creative and well-fitting, many of these masks allow larger people to be stylish while also being comfortable.
Take a look at our list of brands and designers who cater to large and bearded faces!

Lone Flag’s Antimicrobial Quarantine Mask was made with specific attention paid to sizing. According to the retailer, the one size fits all mask was made to try to accommodate as many face sizes as possible. “These are one size fits all and are measured to fit 90% of all men’s heads, but we do know everyone is different. Please remember that you can adjust each one simply by cinching / knotting the straps if you need more snugness. Of course, no OS fits everyone perfectly but we did our best to size for the greater good to cover everyone.” Get yours for $16 at their website.
