Large condoms are for men with larger than average penises. Only a minority of men require them. Most men can happily use standard sized condoms. When it comes to penis size, finding the well fitting condom is the key to safe sex, so invest time in finding the best condom for you.
This list is a review of large, larger, XL and XXL 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.
How large is the market for large condoms?
Large condoms are for men with larger than average penises. Only about 10-15% of men use large, XL or XXL condoms. It is best to use correct-fit condoms to enjoy maximum protection from unwanted pregnancy and from transmission of STI's.
Considering that you want to be practising 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 large size condoms?
Nominal condom width (width at base)
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 large, extra large and XXL 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, instead of worrying about the condom being too tight or too short.
