Flare shaped condoms are recommended for those with penis wider at the head. Most men can happily use standard sized condoms. When it comes to penis size, finding the best fitting condom is the key to safe sex, so invest time in finding the best fitting condom for you.
Flare shaped condoms that fit well are less likely to slip off and are just as safe as tubular condoms.
We will compare different condoms of this type and the comparison will cover condom sizes such as length, girth and thickness. Keep in mind that a best condom for someone else may not be the best condom for you. Choosing the right condom should be easier with knowledge of their differences.
Flare shaped condoms are very popular.
Considering that you want to be practicing safe sex whilst enjoying it, why would you risk using the inappropriately sized condom which may break, slip off or cause discomfort? Finding the right fitting condom will only enhance the pleasurable experience by both offering physical comfort and peace of mind.
What size are flare-shaped condoms?
Some regular width condoms are wider at the head, so sometimes they are considered large or XL. However you don't want the condom to be too tight, so it doesn't restrict the blood flow to the penis.
We use manufacturer specifications for nominal base width to distinguish different sizes. In the chart below you can sort them by whichever dimension you want.
Smaller and snugger sized condoms: nominal base width under 50mm
Medium and regular sized condoms: nominal base above 50mm and under 55mm
Large, XL and XXL sized condoms: nominal width above 55mm or above 54mm with a flared shape.
It is best to compare flare-shaped condoms by their dimensions, after all safe sex is at stake and there is a diversity of penis sizes.
Find the best condom for you and concentrate on enjoying sex rather than worry about a loose condom slipping off.
