If you want to "comply" while still breathing - this is a very pretty way to do it. I bought these for all my friends. Theyre breathable and the ear loops are adjustable. Perfect.If you want to wear a medical mask underneath, go for it. I wouldn't but that's because I wear medical masks when appropriate (around elderly, in hospitals, etc) and not just because the gubament demands it.Love this. I was wearing a lace mask before when forced, but this one goes over the ears so thats way better. No one has ever said a word about my sheer masks as they are equally as effective as a bandana.
