In the real world, bodies come in all sorts of different shapes and sizes, and it’s no different when it comes to penises. Luckily, so do our condoms – and it’s really important to find one that fits you.

Choosing the right size condom not only means you’ll be having safer sex – protected against STIs and unwanted pregnancies – but it’ll also feel better for you and your partner (or partners).

Our condoms are designed to fit to different penis sizes and will stretch to fit different lengths and widths– while still leaving space at the tip for when you cum. However, you might find that not all condoms fit you quite right. Whether it’s too long, too short, too tight or too loose, wearing the wrong size can damage the condom or cause it to fall off – stopping it from doing its job.

If a condom is too long, it can roll up your penis during sex and hang off the end. This not only stops it working but can ruin the moment when you have to pause and swap it. On the other hand, if it’s too short, the ring (at the bottom of the condom) could snap while you’re going at it and the condom can be pulled off. Simply put, wearing a condom that fits you properly increases it’s effectiveness and your pleasure.

The perfect fit

So, what should you be looking – and feeling – for? Your condom should feel ‘snug’ and comfortably sit over the full length of your penis, with a little room for air at the tip. When a condom fits just right, it should stay intact and in place until you’re done with it.

Too loose?

If you feel that your condom always slips off or feels baggy, you should have a look at a narrower option like our Invisible Extra Sensitive Condoms, which have a width of 52mm (rather than 56mm). To save some time you can even search our condoms by width.

Too tight?

Or maybe every condom you try always feels too tight? Durex Comfort XL are our extra-large condoms that are slightly longer and wider. Wearing a condom that’s too small doesn’t only put you at risk of it breaking, it can be painful or reduce the sensation you feel – and where’s the fun in that?

Think about thickness

There’s also lots of choice when it comes to a condom’s thickness. You could go thicker for extra safety and peace of mind, or thinner to increase sensitivity and feeling. Our Thin Feel Condoms provide the same high level of protection, while helping you feel closer to your partner during sex.

Remember, a better fit means better safety and better sex. Now go have a feel of what fit feels best for you.
