What to look for in Kegel Balls?
Kegel balls have been around for centuries, and with the birth of the internet have become much more popular. Due to this many companies have come out and declared that they sell the best kegel balls on the market, but rather than just believing the marketing claims, we thought it would make sense to go out and test out a few different pairs.
The Factors to Consider:
Ease of use - Detailed Instructions
To be honest, this is a bit of a confusing subject. Prior to this we hadn't really thought about this "subject" so detailed instructions were a huge plus for us. Sadly, most companies selling kegel balls either don't have instructions, have terribly written translated from Chinese instructions, or just unhelpful instructions. One package even told us to put a condom on top of our kegel balls!
One company did come out on top with really useful and helpful instructions. The details are provided below.
Packaging - Discretion
If you're just getting started, you probably don't want something that screams "here are my kegel balls!" We sure didn't. A lot of the people who buy kegel balls are mothers, and it would be horrible if our toddlers or young children get ahold of a package and asked, "what are these?" Plus, kids will put anything in their mouths. Gross!
Even if you don't have children, or even share housing with anyone, it's just better to keep it as your own secret. In the end, discreet packaging is a worthwhile factor for us.
Weight Options - Can you mix and match weights?
Some products come with 1 weight, some come with several. In the beginning, we didn't think about this factor at all because it wasn't clear why it was important. After reading some helpful detailed instructions, having multiple weights is great as you "progress" in your kegel training.
The ones that we recommend below have 4 balls and 2 strings so you can have up to 10 different weight combinations!
