Do You Wear An Eye Mask to Bed to Help You Sleep?

Before we go any further in our friendship, it's only fair that I tell you about an addiction I have. It's one that my sister calls "ridiculous," but I don't care. My name is Bella and I'm addicted to wearing an eye mask to bed.

Ever since I watched Breakfast at Tiffany's, I, like Holly, have donned an eye mask while catching some zzzz's. Sadly I have been told that I look nowhere near as elegant as Audrey while doing so. Humph. Aside from being labelled "old before my time," another con is the startling affect that wearing one has on your hair. Not to mention sex appeal. But the pro is one blissful night of uninterrupted sleep. There's something satisfying about it being as dark as possible. Or is that just me? Do you wear one while you sleep too?

Yes, I do. I never used to be able to - but as I have gotten older, I find I am more sensitive to light levels when sleeping (that said, a kip on the couch can happening in glaring sun), and especially if hubby is having a rough night.

Oi Moi Gawd, TWINS - I started donning an eye mask just for the love of Holly, too. But I had to stop - it was kinking my hair and would slip off during the night and get tangled in my hair, or I'd wake up suddenly and think I was blind for a terrifying second.

My sister who I share a room with does. But they always feel so uncomfortable on my face.

Yes every night. And if I am away from home and have forgotten it, I find it hard to sleep.

I think wearing an sleep mask at night actually made me more sensitive to light. I never used to need one but ever since I started wearing one at night I can't sleep without it. If there is even the tiniest bit of light in the room I can't sleep, no matter how tired I am.

I wear one pretty much every night that actually looks a lot like Audrey's in the movie, blue with eyelashes on it. I have to wear one because my eyelids are really thin and when they're closed I see exactly the same amount of light as when they're open. It kinda sucks, but you get used to using one. Now I can't fall asleep without one.

Not quite, but I've fallen asleep with an eye pillow on. The eye pillow I have is similar to a sleep mask but without the strap so it really only works if I'm laying on my back. I tried wearing a sleep mask that the airline provided on an overseas flight, but it was made out of cheap material and not at all breathable. I didn't like the feeling of my eyelids sweating, so I took it off after awhile.

Sometimes. I have several and once in a whole I'll pull them out. It makes me feel so luxurious, but they're around my neck by morning.

My sister bought me one for my birthday a few years ago, but I hated the way it felt and I also felt uncomfortable in total blackout. I tried to give it a chance a few times, but I just didn't like it.

they're so pretty! Sadly I can't wear them because I have a really flat nose bridge so they sit too flush against my eyes, and I find this super uncomfortable and distracting

No, but I need one! Miss Golightly had the right idea! P.S. that's one of my FAVE movies.
