What sizes are traditional condoms? Are condom sizes 'one size fits all'? You might think that condoms are already available in a wide variety of sizes; indeed it's a view shared by many people: Dragons' Den is the British version of Shark Tank But this perception owes more to clever marketing of things like 'XL' or 'Magnum' condom sizes than any significant difference in their actual dimensions.
In fact, the smaller your penis, the more complicated it can be to find a condom that fits correctly. Many guys are too bashful to shop around, so they buy the first condom brand they recognize at a drug store, and end up having an uncomfortable—or worse, unsafe—sexual experience. A Google search shows that condom slippage is certainly a popular item.
It could also affect your ability to orgasm. You can use a ruler or measuring tape. This means you could end up buying a condom smaller than you need. Remember that your girth is the distance around your penis.

It only feels right, when it fits right! Think about it: Everything you put on your body - from gloves to hats to jackets - is perfectly designed for your size. And now so is your condom.
Condoms are still the most effective way to prevent pregnancy and sexually transmitted diseases. Men have been using them for over 11, years, after all, so the technology is pretty sound. But a condom's got to fit right—not so loose it slips off or so tight it breaks.
Perhaps this is due to the lack of clear sizing on packaging…or awareness that condoms are indeed available in a wide range of sized. Condoms are measured in nominal width ranging from 49mm, for smaller condoms, up to 60mm for the larger sized. You will then be able to reference the width when shopping around for condoms.
Getting the right fit is important—and not just for increased pleasure, but to avoid unwanted pregnancy and sexually transmitted diseases. Get the right length by measuring from your pubic bone to the tip, and also measure your girth by wrapping the cloth tape measure around your penis at the thickest part. Standard condoms usually have a length of seven inches.
