Something I never thought could be an issue when looking for underwear was penis size. Now that I actually wrote it out onto a random white space on the internet, it seems ridiculous that I would think it wouldn't be, but with how often we get questions about whether or not their “well-endowed” penis would fit into our designs, I’ve noticed that it’s definitely an important factor in looking for a pair of underwear. So now, with this knowledge under my belt, let's talk about how to know whether or not you have a Big Bratwurst, or a Tiny Todger. (Why yes, we did have a lot of fun with those nicknames.)
So here’s the thing: the average penis size, when erect, is 5.1 inches, according to Medical News Today. When flaccid, the average size is 3.5 inches.
Are you surprised? Underwhelmed? Rushing to see if yours matches up? (Relax, you’re fine, no matter what size you are!) I thought this would be a useful bit of information to share, because penis size does seem to be important to a lot of people outside of shopping for underwear, as well. It can be a big source of insecurity, because many guys think they need to be 7-8 inches to be considered competent. However, the average size is plenty big! Even if you’re below average, hey, there’s no need to fret. Just means you don’t have to uncomfortably shove it into tight pairs of underwear, right? Comfortability is pretty great, in my opinion.
So if you’re below average, you might be considered a “Tiny Todger.” In the underwear world, that means you can wear underwear with smaller pouches with fabric that doesn’t stretch, like our 3 Degrees of Dazzle Tanga. However, you might want to avoid underwear that has bigger pouches, as the pouch will look a bit off since it’s not being filled.
If you’re above average, you’ll want to stay away from non-stretchy underwear like the one we mentioned above, (unless you’re going for the “exposing half of my penis” look.) Our Silk Satin Tanga, however, has a smaller front that stretches out to accommodate bigger penis sizes. If you want something specifically meant for your bigger penis, our Invisible Shaper Brief is stretchy enough to fit you in there! It's made with an incredibly stretchy, contouring pouch that should fit you, no matter how big you are.
I never knew penis size could be a big issue when looking for a pair of underwear, but knowing which ones would accommodate bigger or smaller guys is definitely helpful! It’s good to be aware of that kind of stuff, you know? Now you can shop for underwear with full awareness of whether you have a Big Bratwurst, or a Tiny Todger!
Has penis size been something you have to consider when you shop for underwear? Leave us a comment! Just be sure to keep it classy!
Not only Penis size matters. What about ball size. They will fill the strechy or non strechy ‘cup’ as well. Is there an average size for them as well?
Finally it’s spelled out!
I’ve had trouble in that aspect when bying underwear fitting waist and butt. Perhaps it’s time to do like women bra’s, have different “cup” sizes :-)
Thanks for great underwear anyhow!
