Cross your fingers

So back when I first became interested in cups, I told my sister about them and she purchased a Diva as well. Now, whereas I had success with it (most likely due to my endless reading of this community and sheer determination that - like it or not - that cup was going in), she didn't. She says that she wasn't able to fold the cup up small enough to fit. I can understand that - the small Diva is still pretty big. I suggested to her tonight that she might have more luck with a smaller cup after she asked me if I had any more heavy tampons around (I had one, left in the bathroom from ages ago).

The thing is, she doesn't have a lot of money right now, so I decided to just buy one for her. Because frankly, if she can get to using it, it'll save her a lot in the long run. I ended up bidding on a small Pinkcup from the ebay store. It's the smallest cup, it still holds as much as a Super tampon when she normally uses regular ones, and it's a softer cup so I think she'll be able to have an easier time with it. Cross your fingers for her, girls!

Oh, and I was in Wal-Mart the other day, and I took a quick trip down the pads/tampons aisle... Oh, the smug sense of superiority I felt...
