Condoms keep breaking! Where are we going wrong?

I've given up on microgynon.
Me and DP have decided to use condoms instead.

Problem is, every time we attempt doggy style the condom breaks!
We are using Durex thin feel.

Are we doing something wrong?. Should we use another brand?.

It would be a shame to put a limit on doing some positions due to a bit of latex!

I don't quite trust the thin feel ones either... I think we had a break the other day but he flushed it before I could check but I found evidence on my thigh!!'

Bloody thin feel! Tonight was our 3rd breakage in one session. It happened during the week too and I also found 'evidence' on my leg.

Use normal, extra safe or ultra strong.

Ahhh yes... We have thin feel condoms to thank for our lovely dd.

We've never had a problem with the thin ones.
Could they be too small? I know DH cannot use the durex ones in an orange box as they are too small, but the rest are fine.

You can buy bigger sizes online, if you think it could be that.

DP is a well endowed fella but on first glance it seems to fit fine.

I worry if we use extra safe or strong ones he would lose sensitivity.

How about ribbed? Real feel? Boots own brand?
