I'm sure someone has asked this question before, but I can't seem to find the topic.

Alright, so we've found that the condoms we've been using are a bit tight, and cause some discomfort. But we're worried that any larger and it'll be too baggy...

So, my question is... will a bigger size be too baggy and slip off? Because that'd be bad. Obviously we wouldn't want to sabotage our birth control method.

EDIT: And I forgot to add... We've been using Trojan Ultra Thin Lubricated. In case that changes anything.

Boyfriend here, I was actually going to ask this question, but she beat me to it.

To clarify, the normal condom size is almost exactly the same circumference of my penis, maybe a few millimeters smaller, and are quite tight around the base.

If the ring size on the condoms you've been using is too small, it's pretty unlikely that a larger ring size will make them too big - the difference really isn't much, only a few millimeters generally. As for which brands you may want to try, check it out: Your Map to the Condom Aisle
