Which Bathmate Should I Buy?

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.

Not only will i cover the differences between the Bathmate Hydro, Hydromax and HydroXtreme series pumps, but i’ll also be telling you how to choose the perfect size, how much a Bathmate costs and just as importantly, where you should buy your Bathmate from to ensure you avoid the fake, counterfeit rip offs!

What 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.

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 size 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.

What 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!

How 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 Your Penis
Measuring Your 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 one.

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.

Which 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 HydroXtreme 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.

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

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.

Bathmate Hydromax Series

The Hydromax series 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.

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 HydroXtreme Series

For those that want the best or simply need a Bathmate that can accommodate a larger than average penis size, the HydroXtreme 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.

Bathmate HydroXtreme7

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.

1 HydroXtreme5 3" / 8cm 5" / 13cm 6.5" / 16.5cm

How 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.

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.

Bathmate Pricing

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.

Where 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.

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.com.

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.

    1. Nous ne vendons pas de produits directement car nous sommes un site Web de révision – vous devez contacter la boutique en ligne avec laquelle vous avez passé votre commande d’origine.

  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?

    1. 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?

        1. 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.

    1. 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.

      1. I have a hydromax 7 but have a lot of trouble makeing 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

        1. 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.
