A Big Bratwurst, or a Tiny Todger?

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 5.5 inches, and when flaccid the average size is 3.75 inches, according to Bedbible.com/penis-size-statistics. Check out the link to see how your country ranks on penis size and many other interesting and invaluable facts.


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!

I have been searching for a company to start listing pouch sizes as well as waist sizes! It would be nice if all your underwear could come in waist and pouch size options. BA be the first to break the ice and help us chaps out! I am well endowed and it is difficult to find underwear that I don’t spill out of. Especially something that is sexy, silky, and comfortable. Too often I cannot fit myself into the ‘one size fits all’ pouch and I am left having to skip out on buying styles here that I desperately want but know I won’t fit into.
Keep this conversation going!

Needing Bigger Pouches November 13, 2020

I’m a small stature guy @ 5’2" but pack a 6.75" buddy. Growing up I didn’t know there was variety to underwears. I just wore the typical whitey titey mama buys when I was a kid. In my teens, I switched to boxers because all my friends wore them. I was never comfortable in any under garmets as there just wasn’t any support and I’m constantly having to reposition myself. In my early 20’s I came across mens bikinis. It had a fairly nice front pouch that provided sufficient room when I’m not erect and good support for me and it also stopped my buddy from sticking and rubbing my thighs or flayling around during regorious activities. Finally something that is made for small stature guys that pack a punch.

I am a very small guy unfortunately. I’m about 1” maybe flaccid. About 2.5” hard. My balls are tiny as well. Would really be nice to have pouch sizes on underware. I have to get an XXXL to fit my waist and my balls just bounce around in there. It can be very painful.

I would say the biggest issue is what to do with balls and a c*#k that never stop touching my thighs. I’m 6” flaccid and have gone as far as designing my own underwear to solve this issue. I like the freedom of boxers, but there is no protection from chaffing, so I use creams to keep the jock itch at bay.
If a company would do package sizing for da boys as well as waist size, that would be awesome.

Chaffing near the anaconda September 12, 2018

My penis is just slightly larger than the average stats stated in the article so I’m definitely not big. However my balls are let’s just say more than adequate for my penis size & provide me with quite the load of ammunition which I thoroughly regularly enjoy! Yes pouch size matters of course. When wearing pants or shorts & coverage is lacking the chafing effect can detract from wearing some of the most comfortable underwear on the planet! Agreed?

Pouch size matters! Dahh. My underwear drawer is half full of briefs that don’t fit right. Its so flipping frustrating. I challenge BA and XD to break new ground and lead the revolution. Start sizing pouches as simply as bras. Even A B and C would be fantastic information! Just like waist sizes do not fit all, why on God’s green earth do underwear-purchasing men accept products from manufacturers on the assumption that one pouch fits all. Our testicles vary in size as much as our penises. PAH LEEZ try breaking ground with a simple design, and let your customers show their response. I realize that sizing three pouch options would triple the “size” of most inventories to the “carried,” but life is too short to wear stuff that does not fit. So, I wonder if, at least at the start, somehow the waistband would be adjustable (think adjustable bra strap hooks, perhaps, located in an area that would not be exposed to rubbing— either side of the pouch?).

Yes—it makes a big difference! I’ve experimented with all generic, gendered types of men’s underwear, and pouch size, for this tiny todger, is a huge factor. Often, the fit is okay upon first donning the new pair, but, sure enough, after a couple of hours of wear, too-big pouches (most of them) look terrible—and feel terrible, too, compared to smaller pouches. I know it’s a big taboo, but it would be incredibly helpful if, as a previous poster said, men could have cup sizes like women do. I actually found this post because I was searching for advice from other small guys on which small-pouched underwear worked best! For demographics: I’m 2” or less flaccid (my penis retracts into my body a little).

I’m definitely a Tiny Todger. Mine is 1 inch limp and 3 inches fully hard. My testicles are tiny also. They stay inside of me most of the time. I have to wear tight briefs cause my penis is so short and shriveled. This post helped me.
Thank You,

Pouch size is very important for me. I have a tiny waist so I usually order size small. But I’m around 5.5" when flaccid and I have fairly large sized testicles. This makes shopping much harder. For example I ordered the lace Brazilian brief here. It looks great and feels great. But I end up spilling out the sides. If I get even the littlest bit aroused I just come right out of them. Just ordered 2 pairs of briefs and they look like they have a larger pouch and are made of stretchier material. Hope I can fit all of me in them because they look great.

I think in addition to waist size, pouch size also should be mentioned in men’s underwear. I have a wide hip but 2.5’’(when soft) penis. So sometimes after I wear an underwear it doesn’t look good as good as it’s on the models in ur pics. If there is a pouch size like cup size in women’s bras, I could select better.

I am so happy to see you writing about this topic. In addition to a pleasantly sized penis, I have been told by a number of people that I have very large balls. A close examination of some porn confirms that that is probably true. As a result, a lot of underwear doesn’t work well for me. I need something with a pouch that keeps my balls supported so they don’t get squished between my legs. Boxers don’t work; they are worse than going commando.

Some BodyAware styles that work for me are the Stunning Sun brief, the Spring Swing, and the BodyCon brief. There used to be something called the “Well Endowed” brief but I no longer see if on the web site. I also recently bought a pair of the Space Grunge Leggings which do a wonderful job of highlighting everything. Definitely not for working out in public.

From your description I would be classified as a proud Tiny Todger. Maybe that’s why my underwear drawer has many pairs of panties … panties that match my wife’s. Yes we like to wear and shop for matching panties together. I do consider the size of the pouch when making a purchase because having a lot of unfilled material in the front is not a good look. Anyway we love bodyaware and its sister site xdress …. keep up the good work of making quality underwear for every penis size.
