Since my husband has had not success in the past with any sort of nose opening strip or dilator, the problem for him is not his nose, but in my opinion the fact that he opens his mouth and breathes through it while sleeping. It was my hope that having clearer breathing with this dilator would stop that, sadly it didn't. I did notice a reduction in the amount of times he snored while using it though. I really appreciate that this is not advertised solely as a stop snoring aid, as the causes of snoring are so varied.
As a nasal dilator though, it's really top notch. My husband has the pictured 'slotted' nostrils, while mine are round, but we both noticed we were able to breathe clearer and had less congestion while wearing these. I recommend getting the pack of three sizes to find which works for you. They look really umcomfortable because they stretch the nostril and make the nose look kind of strange, but actually it is extremely, extremely comfortable to wear.
I can't even sleep with ear plugs in, but I would be able to adapt to wearing these if needed. They are very soft and don't hurt at all. If you stop focusing on them, after a few minutes you begin to forget they're there. My husband, who is much less of a light sleeper than me, was able to fall asleep easily while wearing them. They also include extremely clear instructions for insertion and removal.
