I tried a mask on, and my nose looked very squeezed after taking it off. This was without going in the water.. Does it basically me the mask doesn't fit? If I go in the water will I basically come back with marks afterward.

Can't say for sure, but I can tell you that although my mask fits fine, the bottom of my nose and top of my lip feel raw after making multiple dives.

Get one that fits good and that you like, you can't change it when you are in the water.

Yep, there is really no way around that, but if it squishes your nose from the get-go, it doesn't fit. Just make sure the skirt fits around your whole face while smiling (I find this is when most masks lose their seal), and that it doesn't cause immediate discomfort. You could get used to a little squishy-face, but why bother?

Keep looking for the perfect fit-nose included.

I went to dive store and only 2 masks fit me out of their 10. So it's a lesson learned. Till you know what type of mask that will fit, don't get any.. Same for booties...

However the fins I got from scubatoys are amazing!
