WOOT!! Just got my Diva Cup in the mail. Any advice or tips for a new user who is overweight?

I'm a lil' overweight myself and I can't see how it's made a single bit of difference between my experience and others'! ;)

Good luck, and don't give up if at first you don't succeed :D This applies to everyone, overweight, underweight or neither ^^

If one fold doesn't work, try another. The last fold I tried was the one that worked for me. Also: dry runs aren't for everyone. I learned that the hard way!

I'm overweight too, and I don't think it has made any sort of difference.

Good luck!

Well you wouldn't really keep trying folds if you found one that worked.

I used to say "obviously, it had to have been in the last place I looked" but then my stepdad kept saying "well would you keep looking for it after you found it?" so I don't say that anymore.

I really don't understand what you're saying.

hahaha, I feel silly being excited over it, but I am!

it's not silly, it's a worthwhile investment and totally deserving of excitement. :)

I honestly have trouble imagining how body size would be a factor for very many people in using their cups, so I wouldn't be too worried about that.

General newbie advice, I am glad I tried it for a few hours at home the very first time I used it - it didn't leak, IIRC, but I kept running to the bathroom to check anyway.

Hope it works out for you! :)
