My Snoring Solution is an anti-snoring strap you wear around your chin that promises to close your mouth and move your jaw forward, which they claim will eliminate snoring. My Snoring Solution promises it has been clinically proven to work, is comfortable to wear, and will give you, your loved one and/or your roommate a better night’s rest.
How My Snoring Solution Works
My Snoring Solution is essentially a stretchable black harness that fits around your chin and has holes for your ears. They don’t say what it’s made from except to tell you it’s comfortable, has no Velcro, and will fit almost any snorer (it comes in sizes S M and L).
My Snoring Solution says snoring is most often the result of a partially blocked throat, due to the mouth being open, which causes the soft palate to vibrate in that oh-so-annoying way. My Snoring Solution claims to be the simple solution: the chinstrap closes your mouth and the nasal passage remains completely open, eliminating the Zzzzs.
My Snoring Solution touts a clinical study that proves its effectiveness. However, this study only had 10 participants and, from our reading of the data, showed very little changes in the number of snores before and after using My Snoring Solution for most of them. While one participant went from 56 snores to 0, another went from 1824 to 3323.
My Snoring Solution Cost:
$129.92 ($119.95 plus $9.95 S&H), which they say is a 2-for-1 offer and they give you a DVD and book on 7 Steps to Sleep Success. But, if you stay on the website long enough, a popup window appears offering a “limited time offer” of $89.92 ($79.97 plus $9.97 S&H) for one My Snoring Solution strap.
My Snoring Solution offers a 90-day money back guarantee; however, they insist you send the chinstrap USPS Priority Mail with Delivery Confirmation and they’ll charge you a 25% restocking fee in addition to keeping your original shipping fees.
Bottom Line: Is My Snoring Solution YOUR Snoring Solution?
Generally speaking, we’re going to have to say: no. This is because most of the reviews from websites and consumers tend to be negative. On Amazon.com (where you can buy it for $22.23 BTW) it averages 2.4 stars from 662 reviews.
However, My Snoring Solution may be beneficial to you if you have been diagnosed with sleep apnea, a dangerous condition where you periodically stop breathing during the night. If your doctor has told you to use a CPAP machine, a device that forces air through your nose as you sleep, My Snoring Solution can be used in conjunction with it to keep your mouth closed and ensure the air goes into your lungs.
If you have undiagnosed sleep apnea, keeping your mouth closed during sleep with My Snoring Solution could possibly be dangerous. Also, if you snore through your nose and not your mouth (ask your bed partner) My Snoring Solution won’t do anything at all, except make you look a little silly.
So, you’re probably wondering what is the best device to help you stop snoring? Generally speaking, mouthpieces designed to move the jaw forward have been shown to be effective in studies but these can be uncomfortable for some people and are also quite expensive. We’ve had personal success with SnoreStop, but this can also be costly over time.
The advantage of My Snoring Solution is that once you have it (and it works) it theoretically never needs to be replaced. Again, if you use a CPAP, this strap might be a good idea.
The takeaway is: if you don’t want to wear a mouthpiece or use a spray and you are a “social snorer” through your mouth, My Snoring Solution could possibly help you. However, we would recommend buying this device from a retailer like Amazon at a discount rather than pay the full price on their website.
