Is this a good weight for me? Is it too heavy? Can I use this weight to stretch?
The first thing that I want to cover is that last question. Should you use a weight to stretch? The answer is almost universally, “No.” The reason no one recommends this is because the weight will promote thinning at the bottom of your lobe, and that’s definitely not what you want. You want the stretch to be even in all directions as much as possible, and we’ll cover that in another blog entry that’s focused on stretching. Basically, weights are for decoration, and should be worn for an occasion and then taken off before you start to stretch.
The idea of a reference guide for weights, on the other hand, is a really great one, and we’ve made one up for you guys below, using some common points of reference. We weighed different plugs of different sizes and materials, the kind of thing you’re likely to have if you have stretched lobes, and we’ve compared those numbers to the weights of some of our most popular weights in different sizes and materials.
