Condom Size Chart to Find the Brand and Style That Fits Best

Your guide to condoms that fit your penis’ length and girth

When it comes to finding the right condom, size matters. This includes ones that are appropriate to your length and girth (circumference) of your penis. Improperly sized condoms can easily break or fall off, and you may not even realize it.

You also need to address comfort and safety by taking into account the material a condom brand is made with (lambskin, latex, polyisoprene, polyurethane).

To help you find the right condom for you, this article provides a chart that compares the many condom brands available by size and special features.

Why Condom Sizes Matter

People aren’t all built the same, and neither are condoms. Finding the right-sized condom will increase your comfort level while wearing it. Furthermore, condoms are most effective when they fit properly.

The body of most condoms is roomy enough to accommodate almost any penis size. But even though most are super stretchy, if you buy a condom that is too small, you may feel discomfort and even pain. Moreover, there is a greater possibility that the condom will burst.

Similarly, if a condom is too short, the head of the penis may flatten the reservoir tip at the end meant to catch the ejaculated semen. If this happens, the semen will seep to the sides of the condom and possibly ooze out at the base.

Why Condom Materials Matter

Condoms are typically made with either lambskin, latex, polyisoprene, and polyurethane. Some materials work better than others in avoiding pregnancy and preventing sexually transmitted infections (STIs).

There are pros and cons to each:

Type Pros Cons
Lambskin - Soft and comfortable
- Able to transmit body warmth for increased sensitivity
- Effective against pregnancy
- Not as stretchy as latex
- Not as available as other condoms
- More costly than other condoms
- Not effective in preventing STIs
Latex - Readily available
- Generally the least expensive
- Effective against pregnancy and STIs
- Not suitable for people with latex allergy
- Is degraded by oil-based lubricants and can burst
Polyisoprene - As soft and stretchy as latex condoms
- Effective against pregnancy and STIs
 - Thicker than latex and may reduce sensitivity
- Some people find them uncomfortable
- Not as available as latex condoms
Polyurethane - Thinner than latex and better able to transmit body heat
- Effective against pregnancy and STIs
- Not as stretchy as latex
- Tends to fit looser
- Can readily burst if the fit is too tight
-Not as available as latex condoms

Finding the Perfect Condom Size

Before you can decide what condom size you need, you must first measure your erect penis size by both length and girth. Use that measurement as a guide as you select condoms that have similar measurements.

You may have to try out several types of condoms before finding one that provides you with the best fit and the most comfort. Buy individual condoms or the smallest pack available so you won’t waste money on those that don’t work well.

Most condom brands have their own definitions of what is considered to be standard or large condoms. In general, condoms are available in "snug" fit sizes, regular sizes, large, and extra-large (XL) sizes.

What About Extra-Long Condoms?

If you require a condom that is extra-long, opt for brands like Durex XXL Extra Long Extra Wide and separately check that the penis circumference size is correct. With that said, most extra-large condoms can accommodate penises that are up to 8.7 inches in length.

Summary

It’s important to find a condom that is snug, secure, and comfortable. A condom that meets these criteria will increase pleasure and provide the best protection.

To determine which condom is best for you, start by measuring the length and girth of your penis. The right condom for you will provide better comfort and may prevent such accidents as the condom breaking or falling off.

Frequently Asked Questions

  • How can you tell if a condom fits properly?

    A condom should fit snugly over the penis without slipping off or feeling uncomfortable. Condoms are supposed to be tight, but an overly tight condom that is overstretched can break more easily. Most men can comfortably use a standard condom, but condoms also come in bigger and smaller sizes.

  • What is the best-fitting condom for a smaller-sized penis?

    When it comes to condom fit, width is more important than length. You want a condom that is narrow enough to not slide off during sex. For a penis that is on the slender side, look for terms like snugger or close fit.

  • Are magnum-sized condoms wider than regular condoms?

    Condoms labeled as extra-large, max, or magnum are wider and longer than standard condoms. Some brands also provide extra width at the top of the condom to fit more comfortably on penises with larger heads. 

    Wearing a condom is the best way to protect yourself and your partner during sex. Once you have properly measured the length and width of your penis, you can look for a condom that suits your size. The right condom for you will provide better comfort and may prevent such accidents as the condom breaking or falling off.
