Poll -- “Build A Cup” (Just For Fun)

Hey ladies, I have a poll for you here. I always thought it would be cool to be able to specify what we like in a cup, so I’m just trying to find out what qualities (specifically) most women prefer. I might submit these poll results to a few companies, haven‘t decided yet. I wanted to do 2 separate polls (one for women who’ve given birth vaginally, and one for women who have not, to see if there are common preferences), but I can’t get 2 polls into one post, and I don’t want to post twice, lol. So I’ll just sort of generalize here… Basically, the poll is about the cup you most frequently use, and what you want to be different/the same, or what you prefer in comparison to that particular cup. Have fun! Comments welcome, of course. If there's anything I forgot, go ahead and mention it, and what you prefer in that category. I'll try to add that up too.
