How To Wear your WEARSOS

Unlike many other masks on the market, WEARSOS masks go around the back of your head rather than around your ears. This means your mask is more comfortable and can be worn for longer periods of time without irritating your ears.

You’re Out of a particular size or style that I like?

Because of this, our masks are often one-of-a-kind or in limited supply. That’s what
makes them so special! If you are interested in purchasing a bulk order of a particular style shown on our website, please email contact@wearsos.co
