In brief: 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.

In brief: 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

In brief: 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!
