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 does not recommend using it’s devices as air pumps.

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 can help overcome the symptoms of erectile dysfunction whilst over the long term helping 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 20 minutes per day, 5 days a week and over the long term you can gain a permanent increase in size of a good few inches.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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 gains, 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 (although i still find this considerably harder to use than the Penomet release valve), 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 gains 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 guaranteed means of increasing the size of your penis in a completely natural way.

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 $110, whilst the Hydromax series ranges from $129 up to $199.

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 $249 for the HydroXtreme5 up to an eye watering $399 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.

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.
