Which Bathmate Should I Buy? (Summary Image)

Bathmate is regarded as the leading hydro penis pump in the industry, and having had all 3 Bathmate versions on my desk for review – checkout out my full reviews of the Hydro, Hydromax and HydroXtreme – it’s clear to see why Bathmate is such a popular choice.

For many men looking to increase the size of their penis, resolve erectile dysfunction or simply perform better in the bedroom, a penis pump is a good choice, and for many, by reputation alone, you really can’t go wrong with the quality and results that Bathmate offers.

If you’ve been wondering which Bathmate is right for me? then this article is an essential read before you place your order.

Letter W IconWhat is a Bathmate?

First off, for the rare few of you that have never heard of this product, a Bathmate is a hydro penis pump. This means it’s a penis pump that has been specifically designed for use with water.

Notably Bathmate pumps work best when used with water, however for those that don’t have the opportunity or privacy to use the pumps in the bath or shower, they can be used as air pumps albeit offering in my view, poorer comfort, support and results.

When used with warm water (which further helps to improve blood flow), the Bathmate is placed over the penis and pumped to create a vacuum of pressure.

Using water rather than air means the Bathmate provides a more comfortable pumping experience, whilst water also provides more equal pressure over the entire length of the penis which in turn leads to better results and a safer pumping experience.

Bathmate Hydro Pumps In Front of Retail Boxes

This process of creating a vacuum of pressure draws blood into the penis, which may help overcome the symptoms of erectile dysfunction whilst over the long term giving the potential to increase both the length and girth of the penis.

This increase in penis size is, to begin with, temporary, lasting up to an hour after use. Use the Bathmate for 15 minutes per day, 5 days a week and over the long term there is the potential to start gaining a permanent increase in length and girth.

In terms of natural penis enlargement, hydro penis pumps like the Bathmate are, in my view the safest, most effective and least time intensive methods for gaining an increase in size.

Letter W IconWhat Size Bathmate Should I Get?

Before you start thinking about which series of Bathmate you’d like to buy – the Hydro, Hydromax or HydroXtreme – you first need to carefully consider which size Bathmate you should buy.

You’ve likely been wondering exactly how do you measure for Bathmate? Importantly you want a Bathmate that allows enough room to grow but at the same time you don’t want a device that is too big!

Also don’t forget that the bigger the Bathmate, the more water you’ll need and the heavier the device will become, so a Bathmate shower strap is essential for those not planning on using their Bathmate in the bath.

To determine which size Bathmate you should buy, you need to accurately measure the size of your penis.

If you’re going to spend anywhere from for the Hydro7 up to a whopping for the HydroXtreme11 you seriously want to ensure your measurements are accurate!

Letter H IconHow to Measure Your Penis Size Correctly

If you’re not sure how to measure your penis size correctly, the following guide will show you the best approach to getting an accurate measurement.

First you need to get an erection – once aroused you need to use a ruler to measure from your pubic bone to the tip of your penis. This provides you with the length measurement.

For the girth, whilst still aroused, you need to measure around the thickest part of your penis. If you already have a Bathmate measuring gauge perhaps as a result of buying a Bathmate previously, you can use this to determine the girth, or circumference of your penis.

Measuring the Length & Girth of the Penis

If you don’t have a measuring gauge or a flexible measuring tape, you can simply use a piece of string which you can then check against a ruler.

In these photos I’ve used a lifelike imitation penis which is 6 inches in length and 5.5 inches in girth. That’s a little over 15cm in length and just under 14cm in girth.

If you want to know how to measure your penis size without a ruler, the best approach is to use string and then use an online ruler like this oneexternal link icon.

Once you have the correct measurements you can then determine which size Bathmate provides the best fit. Bathmate also offer this size calculator where you can enter your length and girth and it will show you exactly which Bathmate devices are suitable for your size.

Using the lifelike imitation penis which measures 6 inches in length and 5.5 inches in girth, the Bathmate website tells us the best Bathmate pump for this size is the Hydro7, Hydromax7 or HydroXtreme7.

Letter W IconWhich Bathmate Should I Buy?

Having measured yourself correctly, you’ll then have a clearer idea of which series of Bathmate is suitable for your penis size.

In 2006 Bathmate introduced their first hydro penis pump – fast forward to present day, and they now offer three different models consisting of the Hydro, Hydromax and series.

Each Bathmate series offers something different in terms of features and accessories which is (as we’ll come on to later) reflected in the price.

Bathmate Hydro Series

The Hydro series is the most basic model and comes in just one size although you do get a choice of 3 colours – blue, clear and red. There are no added extras, no accessories and this is shown in the price making it the cheapest Bathmate available at just .

The release valve can’t be locked, the bellow of the pump doesn’t provide as much pressure as the higher priced Hydromax and HydroXtreme series pumps, whilst the base of the bellow has limited padding for comfort.

Put simply, it’s pretty basic but it can get the job done.

Bathmate Hydro7 & Retail Box

The Bathmate Hydro7 is, in my view, a beginners pump – a Bathmate for those between 5 and 7 inches in erect length that are perhaps on a budget.

It’s a perfect first device, ideal for those that have never used a hydro pump before however if you’re planning on taking your Bathmate usage seriously, you’re looking toward long term usage and results, whilst your size is either under 5, or over 7 inches, then you’d be best off focusing your attention towards the Hydromax series (below).

Bathmate Hydromax Series

The Bathmate Hydromax series (priced from to ) is the next step up – in my view it’s for those that want to take their pumping experience more seriously or for those with a penile size that isn’t suitable for the Hydro7 version.

The Hydromax7 (and other sizes in the Hydromax range) offers four specific improvements over the rather basic Hydro7 version.

You get an improved valve cap which can be set in either the open or closed position, whilst the join between the cylinder and the bellow allows for the cylinder to be rotated meaning you can always keep the measurement scale on the side of the Bathmate device in clear view.

The most noticeably and useful improvement though is the bellow of the pump. It has been upgraded to increase pressure by 35% whilst inserted in the bottom of the bellow there is a specially designed comfort pad insert to cushion your groin region more effectively when pumping.

Hydromax7 Pump & Retail Box

The Hydromax series comes in 5 different sizes suitable for those between 2 and 9 inches; each version is aimed towards a specific penile length measurement, whilst the Hydromax7 Wideboy and Hydromax9 offer a device for those longer in length, but also thicker in girth as well.

The Hydromax3 is for those between 2 and 3 inches – it is also worth noting that Bathmate is not suitable for those under 2 inches of erect length.

The Hydromax5 should be chosen if you’re between 3 and 5 inches of erect length, the Hydromax7 if you’re between 5 and 7 inches, whilst the Hydromax7 Wide Boy is designed for those with a girth of 6.5 inches or more, whilst the Hydromax9 offers between 7 and 9 inches of erect length, whilst also accommodating in excess of 6.5 inches of girth, up to a maximum of 7.6 inches.

Each Hydromax, regardless of size is available in 3 colours – clear, blue and red. By far, clear is my favourite of the 3 colour options simply because it provides a better view inside the device when in use.

Bathmate Hydromax Sizing & Pricing (English)

Min Length Max Length Max Girth Price
Hydromax3 1" / 3cm 3" / 8cm 6.5" / 16.5cm
Hydromax5 3" / 8cm 5" / 13cm 6.5" / 16.5cm
Hydromax7 5" / 13cm 7" / 18cm 6.5" / 16.5cm
Hydromax7 (WB) 5" / 13cm 7" / 18cm 7.6" / 19cm
Hydromax9 7" / 18cm 9" / 23cm 7.6" / 19cm

Bathmate HydroXtreme Series

For those that want the best or simply need a Bathmate that can accommodate a larger than average penis size, the HydroXtreme (priced from to ) is the ultimate penis pump!

If you are looking for serious results in length and girth and using Bathmate is going to become part of your daily routine for the months and years to come, there is no doubt that the HydroXtreme series is the Bathmate penis pump for you!

The HydroXtreme offers the same quality and features of the Hydromax but also includes a hand pump (for easier pumping and stronger pressure), along with a large black carry case that can hold all the other accessories that come with this package.

You get the Bathmate, hand ball pump, comfort pad insert, shower strap, security lock, measuring gauge, a cleaning kit, cleaning spray and Bathmate towel. You’ll find all the accessories mentioned in my full Bathmate HydroXtreme review.

Literally everything you could ever need to keep your Bathmate clean and have comfortable, effective pumping sessions that produce real, long term results.

HydroXtreme Pump & Retail Box

The Bathmate HydroXtreme series has 5 sizes starting with the HydroXtreme5 which is for those with up to 5 inches in erect length.

The HydroXtreme7 and HydroXtreme 7 Wide Boy both offer 5 to 7 inches of erect length, whilst the later also allows for up to 7.6 inches of girth.

At the top of the Bathmate range sites the HydroXtreme11 – it’s the most expensive, has the most accessories and offers between 9 and 11 inches in erect length and a whopping 8.5 inches in girth.

Put simply the Bathmate HydroXtreme is the golden standard of penis pumps and a great way of looking after your penile health in a natural way.

Bathmate HydroXtreme Sizing & Pricing (English)

Min Length Max Length Max Girth Price
HydroXtreme3 1" / 3cm 3" / 8cm 6.5" / 16.5cm
HydroXtreme5 3" / 8cm 5" / 13cm 6.5" / 16.5cm
HydroXtreme7 5" / 13cm 7" / 18cm 6.5" / 16.5cm
HydroXtreme7 (WB) 5" / 13cm 7" / 18cm 7.6" / 19cm
HydroXtreme9 7" / 18cm 9" / 23cm 7.6" / 19cm
HydroXtreme11 9" / 23cm 11" / 28cm 8.5 / 21.5cm

Letter H IconHow Much Does a Bathmate Cost?

Price is likely to be a key consideration where choosing a Bathmate device is concerned.

The Hydro7 regardless of colour is , whilst the Hydromax series ranges from up to .

The HydroXtreme (as I’ve already highlighted) offers the ultimate package combining the best Bathmate penis pump and pretty much every accessory you could dream of along with the exclusive handball pump.

This starts at for the HydroXtreme5 up to an eye watering for the HydroXtreme11.

Notably pricing does increase based on the initial size of your penis – so the bigger you are, the marginally more you’ll pay for the larger, longer or wider Bathmate cylinder.

If you’ve got even more money to spend, the totally exclusive Ultramale range gives you everything and more in an epically awsome hard metal case. Pricing depends on pump size (it includes the HydroXtreme version pump) ranging from to a whopping .

Of course for some of us the cost of a Bathmate is just a little too high whilst for others, water isn’t really a viable option (especially if you live in shared accommodation).

If a Bathmate or specifically a water based penis pump isn’t suitable, then I’d definitely suggest reading my ultimate guide to the best penis pumps, which includes both air and electric pump models as well.

Letter B IconBathmate Pricing & Sizes

The Bathmate Hydro7 which is available in clear, blue and red is priced at .

If you’re interested in the Hydromax or HydroXtreme series though, take a look at the following Bathmate pricing table below which lists every Bathmate version and it’s pricing based on your local currency. The Wide Boy versions are denoted with the abbreviation (WB) which notably offer the same length but a larger girth for those that are that little bit thicker.

Letter W IconWhere to Buy Bathmate

If you’ve already started searching for ideas on where to buy Bathmate from, chances are you’ve noticed and already realised that there are hundreds if not thousands of online retailers selling the full range of Bathmate hydro pumps.

Given the very wide variety of both online and offline stores, you’re spoilt for choice however I would personally air on the side of caution given the fact there are so many fake and counterfeit versions of Bathmate on the market.

To ensure your buying a legitimate, authentic Bathmate hydro pump and to cushion the financial cost, it’s well worth buying from the official Bathmate website where you’ll not only get completely free shipping, but you also get a full 60 day money back guarantee period allowing you to return your Bathmate for a full refund if you’re not entirely happy.

You generally won’t find Bathmate for sale elsewhere for a hugely different or varied price, whilst if you do then it’s a good chance the product could be counterfeit.

Rather than taking a gamble and, given the fact that the official Bathmate customer support team know absolutely everything and anything you could ever want to know about their products, i’d always recommend buying directly from Bathmate.

Bathmate Direct Website

If you do purchase from Bathmate directly, you may be wondering where does Bathmate ship from? The answer is one of more than 23 distribution warehouses dotted across the globe so once you’ve ordered, regardless of which country you live in, delivery is generally pretty quick!

Given the free shipping, warranty and 60 day money back guarantee, not to mention the fact that your not really going to find an authentic Bathmate cheaper elsewhere, whether your asking yourself which Bathmate should i buy, what size Bathmate should I get or how much does a Bathmate cost, you can’t go wrong and likely won’t find a better deal so you’re always best off buying from the official Bathmate websiteBathmateDirect.comexternal link icon.

If you’re still not quite sure which Bathmate to buy, then why not read (or watch) my full reviews of the Bathmate Hydro7, the Bathmate Hydromax7 and the amazing Bathmate HydroXtreme7.

So I’m Chris Sabian, the creator and owner of the Penis Enlargement Resource website.

Now I’m going to be honest, I’m actually really happy with the size of my penis – i’ve never had any complaints, and it works exactly how it’s meant to.

That said however, I have worked for various companies and businesses within the men’s sexual health niche – it’s from these years of experience actually working on a number of different products that i have an absolute wealth of knowledge on what does and doesn’t work.

Yes natural penis enlargement IS possible but the amount of bullshit out there is phenomenal.

In some cases, even doctors don’t know what is truly possible, with many (especially in the US) simply prescribing treatment options that are the most profitable for their clinics!

The number of times I’ve seen adverts online for this miracle cure for erectile dysfunction, or a product claiming to give you 3 more inches in less than a month really does play in to the unrealistic and misguided view point of so many and that is why i created Penis Enlargement Resource – to stop the scare mongering and provide a completely unbiased view point on every product that passes my desk.

Yes! Every product i review i actually have possession of – i’m not simply writing reviews based on other generic online content, so if your reading a review and can’t see any unique photos or videos, chances are it’s just an affiliate marketer trying to make a quick buck off your insecurities.

So take a step back, read the articles I’ve written and see which products I’d REALLY recommend, so you can take that first step towards making your penis bigger, stronger or harder.

The journey to natural penis enlargement is not a fast process, it is not an easy process… but if you stick with it, i absolutely promise you, it IS possible.

Have you got a tip or suggestion on choosing the right Bathmate device? Do you own a Bathmate Hydro, Hydromax or HydroXtreme and can tell the Penis Enlargement Resource community how you got on? Simply leave your suggestions and questions in the comments section below.

22 Replies to “Which Bathmate Should I Buy?”

  1. If I have a 6.5 inch length and a 6 inch in width should I buy the wide boy 7 for future growth or should I just buy just the 7?

    • Gaining girth takes a lot, lot, lot longer than length. I’d suggest going for the Hydromax7 or the HydroXtreme7. If cash is a little tight, go for the Hydromax7, then in 6-12 months you’ll be hopefully starting to max out in terms of length. Then you can look at upgrading to the HydroXtreme9 to take you beyond 7″ whilst also offering up 7.6″ max girth as standard. You’re more likely to reach the length limit before you reach the girth limit on the Hydromax7/HydroXtreme7. Hope that helps.

  2. Hi, my current length is exactly 7 inches, girth is about 4 inches. Shall I go for the Hydromax Xtreme 7 or 9? Will I outgrow the size 7 fast and have to spend money shortly after again, or will 9 be to big for me and fall off?

    • Without a doubt, go for the HydroXtreme9 Paul – if you go for the smaller version you’d likely need to upgrade to a larger size after 5-6 months. Feel free to purchase through this link to show us some love and help keep the site running 🙂 Also if you’ve not already spotted it, here is my full HydroXtreme review.

      • Thanks a lot for your fast reply. Already made an order through your link.

        • Awesome. Make sure you come back to the site once you’ve had the pump a month or so, then you can give us your own, completely unbiased review. If you’re new to pumping, I’d also suggest taking a look at my article on the 7 dangers of penis pumps.

      • Hello Chris! My penis is 5.6 inches which Bathmate is suitable for me?

        • You’ll likely want to go for the Hydro7, Hydromax7 or HydroXtreme7 – if you have a larger girth than average, then you may need to consider one of the Wideboy versions. To double check your sizing, use the following Bathmate size calculator.

  3. My length is 4.8 inches and width 4.6. Should I try x50?

    • The x50 no longer exists. If your measurements are accurate you’ll want either a Hydromax5 or a HydroXtreme5 – you can check your measures and ensure you get the right size via this link.

  4. I have a Hydromax7 but have a lot of trouble making it seal I ordered a valve replacement to see if that will help if had the pump for approximately 2 months still new I’ve had it seal about 5 times that’s it very frustrating. Help!

    • The usual culprit for a bad seal is at the base of the device – where it touches your groin region. Everyone has a slightly different body and contours so getting the right position can take a bit of practice. First off if you’ve got any pubic hair, try and cut it back as much as possible or shave complete. Any hair that gets caught under the bottom of the pump will basically create little air pockets and as a result that can lead to poorer suction. Don’t forget you can also rotate the pump of all Bathmate devices to find the perfect fit. With reduced pubic hair, try applying a small amount of Vaseline so the base of the pump, when you then place the pump against your skin, this will help created a better seal but also allow you to more easily rotate the device to find that perfect position. Usually a lack of pubic hair and a little Vaseline is a winner.

  5. Wish I found this site before I bought! Got the HydroXtreme7, initially measured 18cm length and 14.5cm girth. Bathmates website recommended the 7, where now that I’ve been using it for a month the HydroXtreme9 would have been a better fit. For now its a tight fit and fully pumped I’m 19cm. Will be looking to upgrade to the HyroXtreme9, going for it all! I’ll gladly pay the upgrade, since that’ll mean I’m firmly established in the 8 inch club knocking on the 9 inch door! If anyone is on the fence, I highly recommend spending the extra for the HydroXtreme, the hand pump really helps out getting max pressure and results and all the goodies that come with it. I’ve also had initial problems with the valve, that’s where the pump helps out, lock the valve and pump away, holds pressure regardless. I contacted Bathmate and they immediately sent out 2 replacement valves, although regular post and had to wait but didn’t matter. Looking forward to joining the 8 inch club soon! Then from there who knows. I also have been getting rid of the pubic hair forest for years, so to trimming off a little more for a perfect seal was no problem. Found Nair and Veet sensitive skin works well on the entire area, I have a large nut sack and like the clean feeling it gives me. When I was in Germany found a Veet mens product that has worked the best so far. I’ll definitely click through your site when I’m outgrow this “little” HydroXtreme7 on my way to 9!

    • Awesome stuff Peter! The issue with upgrading to a size that is too big (too soon) is that you then need more water, and more water means a heavy device whilst you’re obviously no doubt going to use/need more effort to achieve a decent level of pressure – it’s a tricky balance, and no point going for the HydroXtreme11 (for example). If you’ve not already done so, just be a bit careful with the pumping as even experienced vacuum pump users can get occasionally caught out by some of the penis pump dangers.

  6. Hey, what is the best routine for advanced user? Maybe you could help with different routine plans?

    • Thanks for the request Casper. I’ll look at pulling together some routines for penis pumping, along with some recommended routines for combining pumps with other devices such as penis extenders. Where pumps are concerned, I definitely think its very important to not over pump, even if you’re in a situation where you want to push yourself and attain better, faster results as that is a sure-fire way of increasing risk and potential health complications. As with all natural, physical methods, it’s best to be the tortoise rather than the hare. Slow and steady wins the race.

  7. Hey! I need some help deciding which pump to buy. I want to buy a HydroXtreme and would have bought the 7 if it had more depth, the reason is that my penis is 13cm in circumference and I don’t like pumps that have too much girth like the 9 has. Is it possible to extend the depth with cushion pads on 7? Otherwise I have to buy 9. My penis is 18cm long and of that 7 is too little in depth.

    • If your 18cm erect length, and 13cm erect girth (that’s the circumference of your penis) then you want to go for the Hydromax9 or HydroXtreme9. If you’re not quite sure re the measurements, using this sizing calculator. Also remember that Bathmate is specifically designed for use with water – water is also considerably more supportive of your penis (compared to an air pump) so you should find that regardless of your concerns with your girth, that the size should provide a suitable fit. Notably I’m not aware of any additional means of introducing cushion pads, ultimately the Hydromax7 or HydroXtreme7 would be too small based on your highlighted measurements.

  8. I’m 7 inches in length & 5 in girth, should I buy the Hydroxtreme7? If not, what is the recommendation?

    • Yup, the Hydro7, Hydromax7 or HydroXtreme7 are the best fit based on your size. The Bathmate calculator can be found here – so just plug in your sizes and it’ll then confirm which models are best for you.

  9. If i am only looking for girth increase, how many months are we talking about for actual results?

    • Unfortunately there is no way to specifically gain girth, you will gain length as well. Length is also generally easier to gain (compared to girth) with one half inch (or more) being possible within the space of a little over a month however obviously everyone is different.
