Try them on.: You basically need to try a few sizes to see which one fits well. Make sure it's snug, but not painful, and that it covers to the base of the penis.

They make 2 sizes: Most condoms, according to the trojan co., claim they essentially make tow sizes only. Words like "magnum, etc." are for marketing. Condoms are elastic and can stretch quite a bit!

Condom size: Regular condoms usually work for a girth btwn 4.7 to 5.1 inches. If girth exceeds 5.1 inches (130 mm) may need a larger size condom. If girth is less than 4.7 inches (119 mm) may need a smaller size. See this site for more detailed information: http://www.condom-sizes.org/condom-size-chart/condom-size-chart
