Whether I have odd shaped ears or not I don't know but the standard zoggs earplugs do the trick for me & were recommended to me by a few other people who love them as well - but as trogs says you have to get them the right way round tho

Hi Shas , well i tried a few but the ones that seen to work best for me are the Macks aquablock ones .. pretty comfortable .. a little fiddly to get in but not too bad. They are about 4 or 5 quid for 2 pairs from Amazon and fleabay .  No further ear issues so swimming back on track .. just the cycling and running that are a mess now

No chinstrap though

The only thing about the cheap earplugs is that they have a habit of falling out, nothing worse than finding someones yellow ear plug floating around the swimming pool, its like a twisted kiss chase

 

I was chased around the pool this morning by a used plaster, it was like a scene from Jaws ( I screamed like a shark attack victim). I got to the edge safely and was comforted by the pool guard who heroically got the big net out.

I was advised that I needed to use ear plugs and told USE PUTTY (yes nursey was VERY adamant about this!)

I use Zoggs but break each "bit" into 2. I also have a small head so use a childs swimming hair band under my hat to ensure they don't move as I would hate to have them floating about!!

We have gone through and lost quite a lot over last few years but whilst doing the rounds of home bargains last week for cleaning stuff i found they also had the silicon ones we normally use - 79p for 6, i have pixy ears so split them in half and OH just loses them so they are helpful being bright orange! (worth a try and loads cheaper than everywhere else!)

I had some made by my hospital ENT department (they usually make them for children) after a couple of years of recurrent ear infections. £20 they cost me, a bargain. Worth asking...

I have lost count of the amount of swimming goggles i have left.  I too have little pixie ears and have trouble finding earplugs that don't come out.   Finally, found some that are brill.  Speedos.  Very difficult to describe ..... i'd say they are shaped like little umbrellas.

I have recently bought some speedo ear plugs, I forget I have them in most of the time...................Pardon ?
