So I got my purple stem free classic MeLuna today ( and my extra free sample one was a soft SILVER GLITTER medium as well!!) but I noticed that the medium looks more like the large now...I was kind of looking forward to having the medium be a bit smaller than my small Lunette but I realized its almost the exact same length!
I know they changed MeLuna sizes but according to the info, isnt the new medium supposed to be a little smaller than the old medium? I'm almost concerned that they accidentally sent me Larges >

see the exact dimensions at the sizecharts. the new medium is quite a bit narrower than the old one (which nevertheless had a smaller capacity, so the width wasn't worth it - especially for virgins etc: if you're getting such a wide cup you can as well get one with a considerably higher capacity like the large lunette or fleurcup). it's also a little longer than the old one, because other than freaks like me, most don't need such short cups :D
really my old medium looks insanely similar to my small lunette, far more similar than you'd imagine by the dimensions or pictures.
why exactly did you decide to try a medium in the first place? in what way is your small lunette too big? i thought mine was too long but it's really too narrow. narrowly shaped. so is my medium meluna so even it sticks out despite having a larger diameter. i actually think the new medium with its shape (or a small fleurcup) might solve the problem... but i'm trying the new small meluna first because it's so short.

Well, I had a soft medium old meluna a few months ago but it was too soft for me, and some cycles my Lunette is perfect and then some I still feel it a bit and it annoys me so I ordered a medium classic MeLuna to see if it would be better- but it seems almost like the Large was when they sent me that as a extra last time. I think I may try the small classic one if the medium is too big...thank goodness for mc_sales :D

hm and why do you feel it? the small lunette is considered pretty soft so i guess you have to get along with what you say is "too soft". seen this post yet? http://menstrual-cups.livejournal.com/2618390.html popping open is easy if you know the right tricks. i'd not recommend the classic if even the small lunette is too stiff sometimes.

Taking a look at that post right now =) thank you so much! I will probably try out my medium classic this coming period and see how it works- if not I'll list it on mc sales
