Yes, indeed, I do wear them that way.  Perhaps it works OK because the layers of the mask are 100% cotton.  I have asthma and no problem breathing with it and coffee filter.

 

I also have real N-95 masks which I had in stock > Pandemic.

I wear one or the other depending on where I’m going.

 

When I go to hospital for 6 week blood draw I wear N-95 with their surgical mask over it.  Everyone is satisfied.

Interesting. My masks are 2-layer 100% cotton with a pocket inside. Maybe it's the brand of coffee filter which makes a difference...? I wore a KN95 when I went to get my scans done at the hospital. But other than that I wear the 2-layer cotton. I also have a 6-layer washable mask with the filter built in. The fit of it is amazing. I plan on wearing that when I run low on my KN95s.

I have a some of the original / old N95 masks which I had pre pandemic due to animal volunteer work I do.  They do have two bands which go around your head, not around your ears.

 

I don't know anything about the KN95 masks.

 

I’m going to look for the type of coffee filter I’m cutting up to use.

I buy the Powecom brand. The brand is established and has been around. They are sold on amazon and other places like ebay.

@SilleeMee  ,Those fit around the head, do you wear glasses by chance? They might  help with my mask slipping problem.

The Powecom KN95 masks I got have the ear loops. I didn't know they made the head elastics, too.

DD gave me a couple of Old Navy masks for Christmas. They are good but no better than some others I have. My faves are some that a few neighbors made early in the lockdown.
