So I've been a Diva Cup user for about a year now and although I've been satisfied with how comfortable it is, I've never been totally happy with how difficult it can be to pop open or remove with that short little stem!

I've been lurking on this group for a while and decided that it might be a good idea to invest in a lunette, everyone who uses it seems to like it so much and I hear it pops open much easier than the diva.

I decided to buy direct from their website (even though it's more expensive that way) since I was a bit dubious about going through a third party and besides, I like to support companies directly. However, I've never filled out an order form like that before. It said it used paypal but after I filled in my shipping info it just said, "we'll be in touch with you soon", it didn't direct me to paypal like every other online order I've ever made, nor did it charge me for shipping. I felt a little funny about it. Has anybody else had this experience? Might it be because I'm ordering from the US? Is the lunette website the best way to go or are their others that can get you the cup faster?

Hmmm, I'm not sure, but I didn't think you could order the Lunette from the States. I could be wrong though...

Hmm...I ordered my Lunette from, and thought it was very quick (and professional.) Leastore is the same as, which is listed on the Lunette site as one of their international distributors.

yeah i think you cannot order directly from the lunette site. i used as well and it was all good.

It says this right under the Submit button on the form:

"We use PayPal Email Payments. It is a quick and secure way to bill customers and accept credit card, bank, and PayPal payments online. After the order you will get the email invoice (in 2-3 work days), and simply click the link in the email to make the payment on PayPal’s secure payment page. You don't need a PayPal account to pay!"

They don't have their own online check-out set up, they have a simple email form and then create an invoice. I you don't want to wait 2-3 days, just order from somewhere else and ignore the invoice or reply telling them you changed your mind. :)

I've ordered mine with Leastore (Finland), it's very easy and fast. It costed me 27,10€ (=US$18,62), shipping free! I had a problem with size, sent an e-mail and they answered quickly and changed the size. On your Leastore account, you have your order status updated (an e-mail is also sent). I've ordered it Saturday, sent monday, I expect it for tomorrow... This site is really great!

With current rates, 27.10 EUR = 39.32 USD. I only wish it were $18.62! I'd definitely try a Lunette for that price.

Oops! yes sorry, I just read the wrong line! Well, it isn't too expensive, is it?

I just saw that Divacup is the cheapest cup ($17 at
Does anyone know a site with the cheapest price for Lunette?(save Leastore, of course! ;)

I purchased my Lunette from this Ebay store: The cost was a little over $32 (incl. shipping) to the U.S. Wish I had purchased Size 2, instead of Size 1. If you have heavy flow days, definitely go with the larger size.

Well... wish I found this Eba store before ordering it at Leastore...
But Leastore is reaally good, really quick and has an excellent customer service!

I also ordered mine from Ebay. The seller is an incredible lady, committed to spreading the word about the cups in Europe.
