Just received them and I am pleased with this purchase. I am a large male of English descent with a prominent (i.e., 'big') nose; plus I wear glasses. This mask fits me well, and expands to cover my face from above the bridge of my nose to the point where my chin meets my neck (yes, I'm pleased to report that I still have a bit of chin/neck delineation at my advanced age). The mask when fully expanded is taller than it is wide, which is fine for me. The ties allow a secure, comfortable fit. The cloth is good quality, very soft and comfortable and allows adequate airflow.
Solution for Glasses Fogging
Now, my protruding schnozzola did create a bit of an air gap at the top of the mask which caused fogging of my glasses. Fortunately, I was able to implement an easy solution. I happened to have some soft 1/8" aluminum armature wire commonly used for creating forms for clay sculpting. I cut a length of this wire to ~5.5", which is almost equal to the width of the mask. I then used an awl to poke a hole in one end of the trim strip at the top of the mask and inserted the wire into it, pushing it all the way across the width of the mask inside the trim (see pic). I then bent the wire in the mask to conform to my nose and cheeks and now there is NO FOGGING. It's not even necessary to sew in or glue the wire in place. It stays snugly nestled inside the little trim strip just fine. And it is easily removed when it comes time to launder the mask. You can find a spool of armature wire here on Amazon or at an art/hobby supply store for under $10. The 1/8" diameter wire had the perfect balance of malleability and stiffness for this purpose.
NOTE: I had considered buying some flat, adhesive-backed aluminum strips to use for this, but I'm glad I held off and used the armature wire instead. I think the aluminum strips may be a bit too wide to fit inside the trim and I can't imagine the adhesive would hold up too well if applied to the outside, whereas the 1/8" wire was just the right shape and size.
So, half a star off for having to find a DIY solution to the nose strip/fogging problem, and another half star off for having to buy 48 of these things at one go (I mean, why not market these at five for $15 or ten for $20?). Still, at less than a buck per mask these are an excellent value; and to my tree-hugging, plastics-hating, penny-pinching self, reusable is preferable to disposable. Happily, with so many extra masks on hand now, I'll be able to passive-aggressively give them out to those domestic terr...er, brave freedom fighters I see going without in public places.
Hope this helps with your decision. Keep well!
Addendum: these do not have nose bridge strips/straps. Not sure how sewn in thin metal strips would hold up in washable masks (?shifting ? break ?rust ). However, you can purchase them with adhesive backs on Amazon.
I think these are ideal for kids because of the t-shirt feel. You can tell the difference between the outside and inside materials. There are 48 white masks, so it screams craft project. Customizing a few for each person would not be difficult.
They arrive in four bundles of 12. Unless you like puzzles, separate small groups in laundry bags prior to washing. Failure to do so, may create two large mask squid that will need to be separated in a neglected Christmas light fashion. The masks do launder well. Once they are washed, they pack easily in individual snack bags or five fit in a sandwich bag for travel/work/school.
I you have to wear a mask or want to wear a mask, these are a great option.

J/k. The mask are easy to use, relatively comfortable and should fit most faces. I'm a 6'1'' guy with a large face and they fit ok, and my GF is a tiny girl with a tiny face and they fit her correctly too, so I guess they should fit most people.
They tie on the back of the head instead of an elastic on the ears. It takes 10 seconds instead of 5 to put them on, but they hold better.
A pack for 48 is a lot (I gave some to friends and neighbors), but at the current price (60$/48), it turns out to be just 1.25$ per mask. Given that they are re-usable, it's a really good deal. Most re-usable mask will cost 15$+. So for 60$, you get 48 instead of 4.
I wish they had made a pack with different colors instead of all white. Or 24 black/24 white. But I guess then it would cost more.
There IS a very good cotton mask - 3 layers and with a wire to fit the nose available - go for that - also the ear loops are not elastic and are a good sewn cotton. get the Hanes pack of 5 https://www.amazon.ca/gp/product/B08DSC6J27/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_asin_title_o02_s01?ie=UTF8&psc=1
One review said these were made in the USA, but my package clearly stated Nicaragua as the country of manufacture. See the photo.
