Getting the perfect fit for a condom is part art and part science. The measuring step gets us really close, and usually perfect - but there's nothing to stop a little personal preference taking over either.
Remember, because of where you wear a condom, even a tiny difference in the size of the condom will have a dramatic impact on what you can feel during sex. In fact, just one size code longer/shorter or tighter/looser is equivalent to a whole size of shoe. Our research into condom sizes found that nearly all men tell the difference between adjacent TheyFit sizes - that's a difference in nominal width of just 2 millimetres!
At TheyFit you can choose from any one of our 95 sizes and we are here to help with advice and guidance too. Never have so many different condom sizes been made available before. And we know that we're onto something - more than 92% of customers report that their TheyFit condom feels better than any condom they have ever used.

Getting the length of your condom right is critical for safety and comfort. Too long a condom, and it will bunch up at the base. Not only does this look odd, but the extra latex can act like a tourniquet at the base of your penis, causing tightness. Too short, and part of your erection is going to be exposed - that's not safe, and may increase the chance of the condom being pulled off during use.
At TheyFit we use letters to denote length, so it's easy to adjust longer or shorter:
Each adjustment is equal to approximately 1cm of length.
Getting the width of your condom right is absolutely critical. Too small (narrow) and the condom is going to feel tight, and uncomfortable when you wear it. You might lose your erection as a result of this tightness, or have difficulty reaching orgasm. Lots of guys say that "they can't feel anything" during sex - this is usually caused by a condom that is too narrow, and it's why supposedly 'thin' condoms don't fix the problem. On the other hand, too big (wide) and the condom is going to be loose. During use, it will slip, or fall off all together.
At TheyFit we use numbers to denote width, so it's easy to adjust wider or narrower:
Adjusting by just one increment tighter/looser is usually enough to perfect your fitting. But if you felt that your first size choice was significantly too tight or too loose, adjust the number part of your size code by 2 increments rather than just 1.

Sensitivity During Use
Want to feel more during use? A common tip is to put a few drops of condom-safe lubricant inside the condom. It's something we are told about frequently, both for TheyFit condoms and standard ones too. The effect can be quite dramatic, so it’s certainly worth considering. You may also like to try out the TheyFit size that is one size wider than that which you originally measured, as this can have quite the impact too.
