The Best Cloth Face Masks for Small Faces

The Best Cloth Face Masks for Small Faces

Are you masking up if you can? Wait, not that kind of mask. Cloth facial masks! As expected, the market has become inundated with so many kinds of cloth masks and it’s tough to figure out which ones will work for you. Well, I’m here to share what masks work super well for my adult (yet small and narrow) face!

It goes without saying that I’m fairly particular about things. #ahem #understatementoftheyear But that’s a great thing for you, dear reader, because you know that when I sing the praises of a brand of product, it’s after an immense amount of research and putting it through the wringer.

The Best Cloth Face Masks for Small Faces

I’m a huge fan of the Everyday Non-Medical Masks by Athleta. I’ve tried many, many types and brands of masks and these ones are tops in my book. Why, you ask?


Made from polyester/spandex with a cotton liner, these masks have 3 layers of fabric – a lightweight outer layer and two inner layers of soft, breathable cotton. They are soft and incredibly easy to wear.


Breathability-wise, these masks feel the most similar to disposable surgical masks. I never feel like I’m struggling to get air in, especially on really hot days. Airflow moves easily through the mask.


As a woman with a smaller, narrow face, many adult masks literally hang off my face. Since this mask has adjustable ear loops, I can secure it against my face without worrying that it’s going to slip off.

Also, the encased wire along the nose bridge lends for a better fit and keeps the mask from moving up into your eye area.

All in all, I love these masks. Even my teenage son prefers them, and when do teenagers ever agree with their mamas? #truth Also, my 10-year-old daughter wears the kids’ version too along with these ones by Old Navy.

Hope this helps those of you looking for a top-notch cloth face mask. Let me know if you have any favorites in the comments!

    I’m going to order them, thanks for the recommendation. They are however backordered until the end of August. Do you have any other recommendations for small faces? Thanks!
