Large Condoms

Size and style comparisons for latex and non-latex large condoms

By

Finding the best condom is really about finding the one that fits best. If you find regular condoms fit too tight (either causing discomfort or breakage), you may want to experiment with large condoms. Large condoms may be longer, wider, or both. And while the differences between large condoms and regular condoms may only be a fraction of an inch, those fractions can make a huge difference in comfort. Below you’ll find a selection of large condoms and, where available, measurements.


Kimono Maxx (latex)

Kimono condoms, manufactured by Mayer Labs, tend to be thinner than most major U.S. brands. The Kimono Maxx was one of the first thin large condoms available. Maxx is both slightly longer (195 mm, +/- 10 mm) and just a little bit wider (52 mm, +/- 2 mm) than an average condom. It is also slightly thinner than average (0.05 mm along shaft, 0.085 at tip). It is contoured and wider at the head which can be more comfortable for some.

Kimono Microthin Large (latex)

Currently the thinnest latex, large-size condom available. The Kimono Microthin Large has the same length and width measurements as the Kimono Maxx, but slightly thinner (0.04 mm along shaft, 0.075 at tip). It is contoured and wider at the head, which can be more comfortable for some.

Ansell Healthcare

Lifestyles Kyng is the newet large condom offering from in the Lifestyles line (formerly it was Lifestyles XL and then Mega). Lifestyles Mega is both longer (190-210 mm) and wider (56 mm) than an average condom. The thickness of the latex is about average (.06-.07 mm).

Trojan Ultra Pleasure (latex)

Only a few years ago, people looking for large condoms had one or two choices at most. As condom designs have changed, more options are available. Trojan Ultra Pleasure offers a wider than average fit (54 mm) along the shaft and the widest head available (69 mm). The idea is that extra room will be more comfortable and the extra latex can create added friction. For people who just need a larger condom, the Ultra Pleasure can also be a welcome product. Standard thickness (0.07 mm) and slightly longer (195 mm) than average.

Trojan Magnum XL (latex)

The largest condom available, the Trojan Magnum is both longer (205 mm) and wider (54 mm along the shaft, 65 mm at the tip) than average condoms. The thickness of the latex is average (0.07 mm) and Trojan Magnums have the added benefit of being more widely available than many other large condom brands.

Trojan Supra (non-latex)

The newest non-latex condom, Trojan Supra are slightly longer than Avanti (200 mm) but otherwise has the same dimensions, benefits, and drawbacks. Be aware that Supra are still available with a spermicidal lubricant, which is not recommended (the lube, once thought to provide extra protection against STDs is now thought to increase the risk of transmission). Only the version with no spermicidal is recommended. With polyurethane, some people report a crinkly noise from the material rubbing against itself.

Sir Richard's Extra Large Condoms

Sir Richards Condom Company

Sir Richard's is what you might call a boutique brand of condoms, marketed with an ethical twist; for every condom they sell, they donate a condom for distribution in a developing country. According to their website they are working with Partners in Health to distribute condoms in Haiti. They are also the only vegan latex condom available in larger sizes (for a different ethical interest). They are wider than some other large size condoms (56 mm, +/- 2 mm), a little bit thicker than most (0.084 mm), and a little bit shorter than other large condoms (although still longer than average at >185 mm).

Female Condom (non-latex)

The new version of the female condom, called FC2, is made of nitrile, giving it more stretch and safety than the original polyurethane material.    The Female Condom is 184 mm long, 76 mm wide, and the thickness is 0.04 mm. While the Female Condom is considerably more expensive, because it is so large, and worn by the person being penetrated, it can be ideal for guys with very large penises.
