Whether you're going out to stock up on groceries or a socially distant walk, the Centers for Disease and Prevention (CDC) advises wearing cloth face coverings in public to prevent the spread of the coronavirus.
Due to these guidelines, fashion brands are using their resources to design cloth face masks, and Old Navy has recently expanded its selection of triple-layer masks to include even more styles.
The original five-packs sold out quickly in May, and now they're back in stock with new colors and patterns for both kids and adults. Even better, the brand is now offering an option with adjustable ear straps that allow for a more customized fit. You simply pull the tab closer or further away from your ear to loosen and tighten the strap.
Old Navy is using excess fabric to create the 100% cotton poplin masks, which are designed to ensure comfort and effectiveness, according to the brand. In addition to producing cloth face masks, Old Navy will donate 50,000 masks to the Boys and Girls Club of America.
We've had the chance to try the original non-adjustable version of the masks and found them to be extremely soft and lightweight — and the fun prints are an added bonus!
So far, the new masks with ear adjusters have received rave reviews from customers.
"Bought these for my whole family," one reviewer wrote. "Everyone loves them and the adjustable ear straps are an added bonus. Love the prints!"
According to one reviewer, these are a great option if typical face masks slip down your face throughout the day.
"I’ve had a hard time finding masks that don’t drop down on my face; usually I have to undo the elastic and retie," another reviewer wrote. "These are great because you can easily move the adjuster to make it as tight/loose as you wish!"
