Some people find a slight INCREASE in pressure helps--you wouldn't think so with the air going directly in your nose, but some people find a little more pressure makes it easier. And you can try going up one size of nasal pillows, as the air delivery "holes" get bigger as you go up in sizes.
Be sure you are doing good "nasal hygiene"--use a neti pot or spray bottle twice daily for nasal rinses and consult your doctor about taking a nasal steroid and/or oral antihistamine to keep the sinus passages clear (avoid OTC decongestants because of rebound effect).
I find that the combination of good nasal hygiene and nasal pillows has made my sinuses crystal clear for the first time in many years. My sense of smell is so much better (which is not always a blessing!).
