    hwint16: Just wondering, i just got a jockstrap, and the pouch is too small but the waist is good. By dick and balls keep popping out of the pouch. Is there any company that makes jockstraps with larger pouches?

    I'm probably the resident expert on jocks (says he modestly :) ), having worn them 16 hours a day for the past 35 years or thereabouts.

    I have never come across any way of getting ones that will suit me other than by approaching the manufacturers and getting my jocks custom made with a pouch much bigger than standard to fit me.

    It all depends on your stats and why and when you need to wear them. In my case it is the knockout combination of penis size and weight, balls size and weight, and very frequent erections that makes them pretty well essential all day.

    I'd be very glad to give you a bit of help with this .. it might be better — and less boring for everyone else here! — if you contacted me by private message or email.

    Good luck

    Max

    NO MAX! ;D

    I would prefere if you let everyone else know! Cut a long story short I often wear the kind Max is talking about, but only on special occassions just to save me the embarrasement of an unwanted erection - they hide it quite well, and if I knew about them earlier I would have had one for the past three years!

    So maybe it would be more beneficial if everyone knew what you were talking about. What do you think?

    Oy...Attack of Micro$oft smart quotes! In case you didn't know, browsers can't read the em dash, curly quotes, en dash, or certain other Micro$oft-specific characters. (My favorite is the Y with an umlaut. LOL)

    There are some unreadable characters on your post. Don't use non-ASCII characters, please. It's hard on my browser.

    Some browsers can read these ... some can't. Maybe this was a protest of 2 Brits (Johnstone and me) against ASCII = US cultural imperialism :)

    But, seriously, where else could you go from complaints about undersized jockstrap pouches to the deficiences of ASCII in just one step? This forum has to be unique.

    jay-too: When I was in middle school and playing soccer, I started wearing Speedos to keep the equipment from hanging out. Before going the Speedo route, I had serious problems. During a game I would suddenly realize that my dick (and or balls) was hanging out. Besides breaking my concentration, I would have to stop and reposition the equipment. BUT once the equipment breaks free, the jockstrap is useless; nothing is going to restrain that longing to be free. Yeah, it was disconcerting for me; but the fans loved it AND sometimes it was disconcerting to the other team. Ten years later I still wear Speedos for Lacrosse, Soccer, and Rugby.

    For what it's worth IMHO if you have a problem wearing a jock, either fall-out (!) or discomfort, you are probably wearing the wrong jock.

    Because I get mine custom made, after a period of trial and error I was able to get them made in exactly the right dimensions to hold me without cramping, and the give firm enough support at the same time. I tend to keep one or two made smaller than the ones I wear normally - these smaller ones keep things in order at the gym, or playing sport.

    fitdude: Take a look at the new N2N jocks with the VERY stretchy pouch (and it is a good size, too). Very comfortable. 8)

    ace420: The pouches are never big enough. I actually enlarge the pouch. It takes some practice to master the sewing, but it can be done.

    PLynx37: I have a friend that's really in need of an "extra-large" jock pouch. He has sons that are physically active that require a larger size jock (pouch only). Any suggestions would be appreciated, other than whats been shared already. Maybe getting them custom made is the only answer. What do you think ?

    fitdude: Loose fitting speedos work for me. Like aussie cossies. Also, some like the lycra type briefs worn by wrestlers.

    There are two things which might work, depending on what the other fit requirements are.  

    If buying a larger overall jock gets a big enough pouch, but the waistband and or leg straps are then too long, start out with this oversized jock and shorten the waistband and straps.  This can be easily done by cutting and sewing up the back of the waistband to shorten it, then shortening and reattaching the leg straps so that they are in the right position and the right length.  This is far less work and expense than making a jock from scratch.  If you are not handy with a needle, most dry cleaners, uniform stores, and similar establishments will do simple alterations like this very inexpensively.  Just fit the jock and use pins to hold everything in place, then bring it in and ask them to sew it.

    A second possibility assumes that you are looking for a soft-pouch jock, not one with a cup.  Some jocks designed for cups have oversize pouches to accomodate the cup.  Constructions vary greatly here, so look at various styles.  You may find such a jock that has a big enough pouch when worn without the cup.

    An additional possibility is to have something custom made. If you go to a surgical supply store, I am sure that they will be able to have a "surgical appliance" manufacturer make a jock-like supporter to custom measurements.  However, this is likely to be expensive, and may not conform to your idea of what a jock should look like.  From time to time, some LPSG posters have siad they have had jocks custom made by athletic goods manufacturers.  Perhaps one can post exactly how they went about getting this done, and who they contacted, as it seems unlikely that most mass-market manufacturers today would be able to accept custom orders for small quantites.  Most of their stuff is now produced in huge lots offshore, and I've never had luck getting anything (shirts, etc) special ordered.

    I have been wearing jocks with XL (or maybe XXL  :) ) pouches for more years than I care to calculate (ie since my teens).  

    Ericbear is right about the large suppliers, when the company which used to be the standard jock supplier in the UK was taken over by Slazenger they told me they would no longer be able to supply custom made ones.  
    In some desperation I researched the market and found a small outfit which could help me; later they went out of business, and I had to find a third company.  I still go to them with a regular order.  I don't know if they do international orders, I think probably not.

    I think the small specialist supplier who will custom make them for you is the only real answer.  I can't see myself that just going up to a huge waist size and hoping the pouch will be correspondingly bigger is going to help you.  Beyond a certain size, you need something made for you.

    Chilazer: Not sure about larger straps buddy, but if you ever need a cupped strap for sports... then the "Banana" is cool. Also the Bike Contour gives plenty of room for all the meat and potatos. I'm cupped pretty often for playing bball, so I thought someone might appreciate the information. Keep it strapped buds!
