Yeah, I'm 35, never had a kid, use the small size, no leaks. I don't think your bits automatically just expand with age.

Also, Insteads aren't technically reusable... mine would actually split if I tried to use them repeatedly...

Yeah, I know they're supposed to be one-use. But some people re-use them.

When I had to buy a new cup, I bought the larger size because I was a year over 30, and I think I kind of regret it. It doesn't seem to fit as well as my smaller cup did. My muscles are all very strong from years of bellydance.

I think it's only the Divacup which recommends using the larger size if you're over 30, the other two manufacturers only say to use it if you've given birth vaginally.

This is a good poll, but I'm not sure if it's phrased the right way to show who is unhappy with their cup size and which category they fall into. The only way I could think of to cover that would be to do something like:

1. Under 30, have not given birth vaginally, using smaller cup, happy with it.
2. Under 30, have not given bith vaginally, using smaller cup, not happy with it.

and so forth, but the list would be a mile long. What might be easiest is for the people on this poll who are using the larger cup and/or are unhappy with their cup size to put in a comment explaining why.

Actually, it's only the Keeper that doesn't mention age.

Yeah, I couldn't figure out a sane way to set up the poll to show correlation either. But if someone's really curious they could look at the individual answers (under the "view answers" link) and play match-up. If I have the time later, I might do an analysis of the data myself.

Are you on work avoidance?

So to speak. I'm on sabbatical, so I'm home today. But I have a bunch of errands to run.

I think I'm going to post the tabulation on its own as well, since I don't know how many people will look this far back to see it.
