TheyFit Condoms

What sizes are TheyFit condoms?

TheyFit condoms start in lengths as short as 125mm (4.92”), rising to 240mm (9.4")— 10 different lengths in total. TheyFit condoms have nominal widths from 45mm out to 69mm—10 different nominal widths in total. Combined, there are 66 unique TheyFit sizes vs. the 7 sizes that My Size condoms offer.

Why are TheyFit condoms expensive?
They aren’t. A sixpack of most name brand name mass-produced condoms costs around £6.00. The average cost per condom from a vending machine is nearly £1.50. The premium brands of harder to produce non-latex condoms costs around £10.00 for a sixpack. Once you find your TheyFit® size, you can buy a larger quantity of custom fit TheyFit® condoms for less than the price of a mass produced condom. TheyFits multipack deals can take the price per condom below 60p per condom.

Are TheyFit® condoms lubricated?
TheyFit® condoms are lubricated with a silicone-based lubricant. If you need additional lubrication, make sure to use a latex-compatible lubricant. This is often identified on water-based or silicone-based products. DO NOT USE OIL-BASED LUBRICANTS such as those made with petroleum jelly e.g. Vaseline®, mineral oil, vegetable oil or cold cream, as these may damage the condom.

Does TheyFit offer a latex-free range?
Currently all TheyFit condoms contain latex. We are working hard on a latex-free range and will update you as soon as possible.

 


 

Condom Sizing

Why hasn't anyone made condoms in different sizes before?
In fact the original condoms were custom fitted. But the arrival of latex in the 1900s meant cheap manufacturing relied on mass production of a single size. No one thought to change it since, not least because manufacturing 66 different sizes is a logistical nightmare. International testing standards had to be amended and we needed to invent new manufacturing techniques, for example.

Are custom fit condoms really necessary?
You bet. Multiple clinical studies dating back as far as 1993 have each identified that a significant proportion of men suffer problems when it comes to finding a condom that fits them correctly. In fact, in the populations studied, 40 - 45% of men had issues with traditional one-size-fits-all condoms not fitting them correctly - being too long, too short, too tight or too loose (or a combination). This in turn caused all manner of issues for the men - things like trouble maintaining an erection, or achieving orgasm. Worst of all, a lot of the men were put off using condoms full stop, because they didn't fit correctly. The obvious solution is to make more condom sizes available.

What is the #1 problem with condoms?
The number one problem with condoms is that people don’t use them. When used properly condoms work extremely well. Non-use of condoms is the major risk factor for transmission of sexually transmitted infections, far outweighing condom failure or transmission of an infectious agent through a latex barrier, both of which are statistically infrequent. Because TheyFit condoms fit better, feedback shows that they feel better during sex. When a condom feels better, a man is more likely to want to use it in the first place.

Since latex stretches, why does the size of the condoms matter?  Why is custom fitting necessary?
If a latex condom has to stretch too much to fit, it will feel tight & uncomfortable. This sensation can be further exaggerated if you use a condom that is too long - the bunch up of unrolled latex at the base will act as a tourniquet (rubber band). Many men suffer a 'red ring' in the flesh of their erection, which is caused by a condom stretching too much, or being too long. In turn this dulls the sensation that is felt during sex with a condom. Our research indicates that nearly all men can tell the difference that just 2mm nominal width makes to the sensation & feeling that they experience when having sex with a condom. And for guys with smaller requirements, stretching is irrelevant - a condom can hardly shrink to fit.

Haven’t condoms always just come in one size?
Not at all. For most of their existence condoms were custom fitted. Medical condoms were developed by Gabriello Fallopio in the sixteenth century to stop the spread of syphilis. For hundreds of years, until the early part of the 20th century, they were made of linen or animal gut fitted to cover individual penis sizes. The advent of the modern condom dipping line and limited store shelf space to stock condoms created the “one size fit all” condom.

Don't various condom sizes already exist?
Actually the range of sizes available from other manufacturers is very limited. Clever marketing of ‘slim’ and ‘XL’ accounts for this perception, but in reality these condoms are little different from standard. A condom branded “XL” by one of the most popular manufacturers surprisingly has a nominal width only 1-3mm wider than their normal sized condom. A "small" condom made by another is still 7 inches long.

Penises are all the same size when erect, it is just myth that they differ?
Multiple medical studies have proven that penises come in a remarkable range of lengths and widths - there is also only a vague correlation between flaccid size and erection size. Here are some Wikipedia graphs showing the variance in lengths and widths when it comes to erections. Typically we witness erections each week that vary in length from 3" to 9", and circumference (girth) from 3.2" to 7.2".

 


 

Online Purchasing and Delivery

Why should I buy my condoms online?
What have your experiences of buying condoms face to face in a store been like? For most people it’s a fairly embarrassing experience at best, and a downright stressful, palpitation-inducing one at worst. Buying TheyFit® condoms online is stress-free. You can do it at a time convenient to you, privately and without any need to rush. Most of our customers buy several packs at once for added convenience and to benefit from our multipack offers.

Am I responsible for duties and taxes?
Customers are liable for any charges, levies, taxes or import duties imposed by local Customs Officials (if any) and we reserve the right to attach a 'customs label' when not doing so may prevent delivery. Most if not all EU customers will be exempt from any such charges, and a customs label is not necessary for orders sent to any EU county or state.

How will my condoms be delivered?
The condoms are delivered safely, securely and in a plain package with no indication that condoms are inside or that the sender is TheyFit®. TheyFit® will select the most appropriate carrier for your goods. This means your delivery may arrive in more than one batch to ensure your order is transported in the best possible way. While every reasonable effort shall be made to keep to any delivery date, time of delivery shall not be of the essence and TheyFit® shall not be liable for any losses, costs, damages or expenses incurred by the customer or any other person or company arising directly or indirectly out of any failure to meet any estimated delivery date. The risk in the goods shall pass from the company to the customer upon delivery of such goods to the customer. You will only pay one delivery charge per order, which will be the highest depending on the contents of your order and your chosen delivery service. When you have added items to your shopping basket, the standard delivery charge for those products will be automatically applied to your order.

How will my purchase appear on my credit card statement?
Snug Corp Ltd distributes TheyFit condoms in the UK and Europe, and your credit or debit card statement for any transactions with us will read SNGCORP  - see an example bank statement below. We accept payment by Paypal and all major credit and debit cards. All product prices and delivery charges are shown in UK pounds sterling. Your credit card company will perform any necessary currency conversion.

Will the outer package say "TheyFit Condoms" on it?
The condoms are delivered safely, securely and in a plain package with no indication that condoms are inside or that the sender is TheyFit®.

Will my size be printed on the condom box?
The size code is a sticker on the box which you can remove if you prefer. All boxes and foils look identical. We understand that your size is personal to you and rest assured the only person who will know what size condom you are using is you.

Will the postman know that I've ordered condoms?
No. There is simply no way for either your postman or post office to know what the package contains.

Will the postal service x-ray my package?
Contrary to what some people believe, the Post Office will not x-ray or inspect your TheyFit package. There is simply no way for anyone to know that the package contains condoms.

I live with my parents - do I have send my order to my home?
No problem - why not have the package delivered to your works address, a friend, or a sibling? At TheyFit we let you choose any shipping address for your order, not just your billing address. Delivery can be to any address as long as the address at which your payment card is registered is also present on your order.

I'm embarrassed to buy condoms - do I have to use my real name or email?
Please feel free to use just your initials, or a nickname. You may use any email address that you choose - although keep in my mind that fitting adjustments/discount codes utilise the email address which you use to place your order with.

What if my partner/parent opens the package before I do?
If this is a concern, tell them that you've ordered a gift, and you don't want them to spoil the surprise! During checkout, you can also write "GIFT - DO NOT OPEN" as the second line of your shipping address. This will be printed on the mailing label so they won't open the package.

Why don't you ship to my country?
The list of countries we can ship to is growing - please make sure to check the latest list.

I want to buy in bulk?
We do offer a 10 pack multi-buy deal (60 condoms). If you'd like to buy more condoms than this in one transaction, please contact us for further information.

 


 

The Fit Kit

How do I know if my FitKit™ printed correctly?
It is important that your FitKit™ prints correctly as otherwise you may not get the best fitting TheyFit® condom. Always perform the simple calibration check after printing, by taking any generic credit or debit card and comparing it to the pattern on the FitKit™.

My FitKit™ has not printed correctly – what should I do?
99% of printing issues are solved by disabling Page Scaling, a transformation that some printers do automatically. Fortunately it is very easy to disable this option. When you select Print in Adobe® Acrobat® Reader, Page Scaling is usually shown as an option – simply select None and then continue printing as normal. For some printers, the Page Scaling option is contained in the Properties or Advanced tab of this first Print menu – again simply select None and then print as normal. Alternatively you might want to consider using our mm-measurement fitting service instead - the results will be the same as using a FitKit, without any printing necessary.

How are TheyFit® condoms made and tested?

The TheyFit® condoms that are not very narrow and are not shorter than 7 inches meet the current adopted version of ISO 4074. The remaining condoms are tested using methodologies developed by the world’s technical experts working closely with TheyFit®.


Do TheyFit® condoms have a CE Mark?
