Good option for girthier men or those with allergies

These condoms were a surprising treat for us in all the best possible ways. The condoms were hypo-allergenic, didn't taste or smell and fit my guy's girthy penis. Whether you have allergies to latex or not these are more than worth a try if you aren't satisfied with your current condoms.
No taste/smell, larger than average girth, hypoallergenic, protects against STDs and STIs
Might be too large for less girthy men, still feels like wearing a condom

useful review
We got these condoms from a suggestion that they tend to run larger girth-wise than most regular condoms. They are a bit larger than average after scouring the net we got specs and we definitely gave them a try. The condoms are not colored nor do they have a taste or a smell. This made them great for oral as well as vaginal or anal. They are not made of latex which didn't matter to us but to someone that has an allergy this is a good option. They protect from pregnancy as well as from most STDs and STIs. That surprised me as I was used to the lambskin condoms that only protect from pregnancy.

I personally tend to have an unfortunate reaction with the lubes that go in a lot of condoms. Good examples of this are Trojan and Durex. It isn't a major reaction but it is unpleasant enough to where I do not enjoy sex with those brands. The lube in the lifestyles didn't effect me at all. It was smooth and nice and for once I wasn't waiting for the unpleasant feeling to go away after an amazing round of sex. I also could not feel that he was wearing a condom which was a first.

He was pleased at how the condom felt. We had previously used a wide range of condoms and the best until then were the ever acclaimed skinless skin crown condoms. The problem we had with them however was that they didn't have enough room girth-wise. It was somewhat akin to having a cockring on every time. The lifestyles skin condoms gave him more room and were less constrictive. They do make a large version of the skyn condoms as well if more girth room is needed which is nice to have another option. He said he could obviously tell he was wearing a condom during sex but it was on par with the skinless skin and were far better than other brands we had tried.

All in all we found that we loved this condom for the size and the lube used with it. Others may also enjoy it for its hypoallergenic qualities.
I also use these on my vibrators or dildos that are on the large side that are made of porous materials or when I am on my period and want the fastest possible clean up.
Follow-up commentary
It's been a while and these are still the condom of choice around here. They still don't cause either of us any irritation nor are they too restrictive for him.
