As one of the most widely available forms of birth control, condoms are popular for their ease of use and near universality. Unlike other forms of birth control, there's no need to see a doctor prior, and you can pick them up at any drugstore on the cheap or even for free. But condoms aren't necessarily one-size-fits-all. Every penis is different and you want to make sure to use a condom that fits properly so it doesn't rip or come off during sex. Here, a list of some of the more difficult to find condom sizes:
Smaller Sizes: Look for terms like "Snugger wear" or "tailored fit"
Caution Wear Iron Grip
The latex Iron Grip condoms are 20% more narrow than the typical sized condom ensuring a snug fit that won't come off as easily. It measures 46 mm in width, where typical condom sizes measure 50-55 mm. Also comes with a neat little silver case that holds two condoms.

Life Styles Snugger Fit
This latex condom measures 48 mm in width and is both slimmer and thicker for a tight fit. If you're looking for a condom that's not ultra-thin and is a bit thicker (for sensitivity reasons or because you tend to rip thinner ones) try these.
