Menstrual Cups: One Size Does Not Fit All

I have mad love for my cup (hello freedom!), so when I had the opportunity to try a cup from Lunette I was excited.  I love my cup for the convenience, comfort and health benefits, but women come in all different shapes and sizes so not every cup will work for every woman and I was thrilled to have the opportunity to try other types so that I can speak about them from experience. (Special thanks to Lunette!)

My experience with the Lunette Menstrual Cup reaffirmed for me that not every cup works for every body. This is a bummer because, “What if I buy a cup that doesn’t work for my body?” – that would be seriously unfortunate, but it also means that if you tried a cup that didn’t work for you, there is still hope because there is likely a cup that will.  Check out the video below for a quick size/shape comparison using the Lunette Menstrual Cup in model 1 and model 2.

As you saw in the video, I found that while the larger cup didn’t work perfectly for me, the smaller size did.  In other cups, the larger cup has worked for me, so it just goes to show that the size and shape of the cup make the difference for your body.  I think it’s wise to use the manufacturer’s guidelines, but also to use the knowledge you have of your body and shape.

The Lunette Cup fit well and was very comfortable in both sizes, however I find that I always end up cutting the stems from my cups.  If you have found that this annoyance keeps you from loving your cup – chop that baby off!  I don’t use the antenna to remove the cup anyhow, so for me, it’s just a convenience to have it removed and you may find that the same is true for you.

If the idea of a cup is new to you, I suggest checking out my guide (linked below) and my other posts on reusable menstrual products for more information.
