Making Our Social Imperative More Comfortable.
When you want to get social – at a distance of course – but also want to be able to talk without fabric intruding in your mouth we've got a better option. Our designer, Kim, set out to make a more comfortable face covering that moves the fabric away from your nose and mouth to give you a pocket of air that allows for gum chewing and laughing without constriction.
The details: Machine washable. Outer fabric is a soft cotton jersey: 90% cotton 10% spandex, an inside lining panel is made of 100% cotton percale. Like a crisp cotton sheet in front of your face. Visible seams on top and bottom in teal blue thread. Our children's version has a smaller nose piece.
Glasses fog? No problem: The Soshell style fits snugly across the top of your face and uses the stretch of the fabric to stay on your face. This significantly reduces the very real problem of glasses fog.
Ear loops. Don't need 'em: No need to put anything over your ears. The custom fit, when measured properly, should fit your face perfectly without slipping and is worn just under your ears and over your nose. A great mask choice for hearing aid wearers too.
So Convenient: Feel ever so prepared for a social interaction when you wear The Soshell around your neck. Pull it up when you need it and lower it when you are a safe distance away.
It's just extra: This versatile design can also be worn as a headband! Perfect for those days when you are gardening or reading a book on the front yard and a neighbor stops to say hello.
$2 from the sale of your mask goes to benefit Family Meal in Portland, Oregon, supporting food and agricultural workers in crisis.
Now, here is how to get the best fit.
This item is custom sewn just for you. So cool right? Before ordering we need two accurate measurements for the ideal fit. Use a measuring tape or a non-stretch piece of ribbon or string and a ruler. See video for demo or sample measurement photo. Keep head pointed straight ahead when taking measurement #1.
The Soshell is designed to leave a small gap at the between the bottom of the face covering and your chest to allow for a sliver of fresh air. If you prefer The Soshell to completely seal at the bottom by resting on your chest just select 'full length' when entering measurement #1.

What I love about the Soshell:
A) There are no annoying loops behind my ears.
B) I can easily and quickly raise it up over my nose, and pull it back down to leave loose around my neck when not needed, making it perfect for situations like hiking or walking in public. Pull it up when you come near people, lower it easily when you’re at a distance.
C) It’s super soft and comfortable.
D) It has enough elasticity to reliably stay up over my nose.
E) It’s cozy to keep around your neck. It feels like something you might choose to wear even if you didn't have to.
F) When I wear it with a hat and sunglasses I look like a train robber and I think we can all agree that's a plus.
I am a postpartum doula and finding a mask that was breathable and also didn’t fog cup by glasses on late nights. When I found Dare Heart I was so excited. I actually own 4 of these masks for rotating purposes. After I ordered the second - Kim reached out and asked if I would like to have the mask longer. I said yes. I ended up liking the shorter one better and she offered to shorten it! Kim is responsive and her mask is comfortable and doesn’t fog up my glasses. I can wear it for a 5 hour shift and breathe easy. It is also extremely well made. So happy I found this product and I recommend for all!
I find my Soshell to be super comfortable! Most of the other masks have straps that bother me behind the ears after a while. This one is super easy to put over my face and I don't get fatigued wearing it.
A mask that is easy to have around your neck whenever you may need it. A great walking accessory.
I love my dare heart masks. The soshell is my favorite. I am an essential worker and the soshell is comfy all day. And i love how it can just go down around my neck or in my hair when I don’t need to “mask up” (driving, eating). Also, my favorite aspect of the soshell is no strain on my ears. I wear glasses and sometimes hearing aids. It is so nice not to have fight for space on my ears. I bought more after I realized how handy this style is for someone who has to be masked up.
