In order to enjoy your ball stretchers to the fullest and to get the best results, it is crucial to choose a correct size. This is particularly important if you wish to go with metal ball stretchers and ball weights. It is vital to wear only ball stretching devices of appropriate size to ensure safety and satisfaction. Wearing ball stretchers that are too small or too big will not only ruin the experience but also put you at a significant risk.
Stretchers smaller than your size will be too tight, which will significantly constrict the blood flow and lead to injuries. The grip will also be too strong and uncomfortable to allow you to enjoy. Stretchers larger than your size will be too loose to provide adequate stimulation. Furthermore, they can make your testicles simply slip off. Keep in mind: an ill-fitted stretcher is not only useless but also dangerous.
To prevent these problems it is important to know your proper size. The proper size cannot be guessed – in order to know how big your ball stretchers should be it is necessary to measure yourself. Measuring yourself for a ball stretcher is not difficult but it requires some patience and precision.
Things to Keep in Mind
Choosing an appropriately-sized ball weight or another stretching device is mandatory to ensure safety. Not only that, but it will also provide the best results and the most effective stretching. This is why you should pay special attention to measuring.
The first thing you need to keep in mind is that you can probably wear ball weights of different sizes comfortably. That is, for every penis there are a few comfortable ball stretcher diameters. The goal is to know the sizes (diameters) that suit you perfectly.
Ideally, your ball stretcher should be tight enough to provide effective results and to prevent testicles to slip through. At the same time, it has to be loose enough to be comfortable and not to restrict the blood flow.
There is an ideal diameter (ball weight size) you are going for. At the same time, keep in mind that there will probably be several diameters (sizes) that fit you. As such, measuring will determine your ideal diameter but also the minimum and maximum diameters you can use. You should never wear a ball stretcher with a diameter smaller than the minimal one that suits you, nor the one with a diameter larger than the maximal one that suits you. Proper measuring will determine all three of these sizes, so you can use them as a guide when buying ball stretchers.
That being said, keep in mind that each person’s anatomy is different. There are no “standard scrotum sizes” to go for. It is also possible that your size will change depending on the circumstances, such as sexual arousal, temperature and stretching degree. Remember, scrotum becomes somewhat thinner when stretched, so men with low hangers will probably need smaller ball weights than the beginners. However, this is not a rule and all will depend on your individual anatomy.
Therefore, measuring for ball weights is more about determining a comfortable range of sizes rather than one specific size.
Measuring for Ball Stretchers: How To
Measuring yourself is not difficult, but you need to have some patience. In order to get the most accurate results, it is advisable to take several measurements, preferably at different times. Many men choose to perform measuring after a warm bath. You may also wish to try different “extremes”: when you are flaccid and when you are aroused, when it is hot and when it’s cold, etc. For each of these, perform several measurement and not the results. Discard any measurement that seems a bit “off” (too small or too large compared to other measurements). The average measurement of all will give you your ideal diameter for a ball stretcher.
To measure, you will need a flexible measuring tape you can easily wrap around your testicles. You should measure at the point just between the root of the penis and top of your testicles. If needed, pull your testicles down so you can wrap the measuring tape.
Once the tape is in place, make sure to wrap it tightly enough so your testicles cannot slip through. However, do not make it too tight or else it will be dangerous. When the tape is wrapped properly, mark the spot on the tape where it comes together. Make sure to mark it and not simply place your finger on it because you might move your hand, which can lead to wrong results.
When it’s marked, take the tape off and read the result. Note it: this is your circumference. This is NOT your diameter, nor the ball stretching size you need. However, this is the only thing you need to measure, so make sure to note your results on all repeated measurements.
The average result will give you the circumference. The next step is to convert this number into diameter, which is the base size of a ball stretcher you need. To get the diameter, simply divide your circumference by 3.14 (the rounded-up value of pi). The number you get this way is the base diameter.
In practice, however, this base diameter will be too large. If you buy a ball stretcher with this diameter, chances are that the testicles would slip through. In order to prevent this, it is best to order ball weights that are a bit smaller than the base diameter you get. For most men, this diameter should be about 20-25% smaller. In order to calculate the ball stretcher diameter to order, multiply your base diameter with 0.8 and 0.75. These numbers will give you the biggest (loosest) and smallest (tightest) ball stretcher diameter that will fit you.
However, keep in mind that these are just general indicators and all will depend on your individual anatomy. Some men, particularly those with large testicles, will find these numbers too tight. Some may find them too lose. When in doubt, go with general instructions and test a ball stretcher to see if it fits you. If it is too tight, order a bigger size. If it’s too loose, order a smaller size.
One thing to keep in mind when ordering ball stretchers: pay attention to measurements. Some ball stretcher sizes are marked in millimeters and some in inches. It is therefore important to know your diameter in both millimeters and inches and to pay attention to the measurements displayed in product description. This is the only way to ensure that you’re ordering a correct size.

Measuring for Ball Stretcher Thickness
Another thing to keep in mind: ball stretchers do not vary only by diameter, but also width. There are very thin, ring-like ball weights, but also very thick, almost tube-like stretchers. Some stretchers are oval or come in other designs and shapes. You may wonder how to determine the ideal width for your needs.
While there is no one rule to follow, keep in mind that a comfortable width will depend on the distance between the base of your penis and the top of your testicles. Men with stretched balls can accommodate very thick ball weights, and they can even pile many ball stretchers on top of one another.
As a beginner, you should stick to thinner ball stretchers, the ones you can fit between your penis and testicles. In order to determine this size. Simply measure the distance between the base of your penis and the top of your testicles. Keep in mind that this distance will change and become bigger as your balls begin to stretch. Once you achieve those low hangers you will be able to wear any type of a stretcher you like. As a beginner, however, it is best to go with those ball stretchers you can comfortably fit between your penis and testicles.
