My LilacCups came in the mail today. :D I ordered from from the LadyCup eBay store about two weeks ago. They're so pretty and purple. ^_^ The small is weensy, but I think it'll be just what I need for my light days; my small Diva never filled past the 7.5mL line even when left in for 12 hours.

Because I had been searching for pictures of side-by-side size comparisons of the Diva and Ladycups and never found them (just big group shots) I decided to contribute one. :)

Thanks for posting this! I always thought the small Ladycup would be just tiny, becaus of it's relatively low capacity, but it's not as little as I pictured. I had this image of a "menstrual cup nano."

And that purple is just beautiful, I'm a little jealous :)

Part of its low capacity is no doubt due to the hole placement. The holes DO angle downward, so there is about 3mm between where the hole appears to be on the outside of the cup and where the hole actually starts on the inside of the cup.

Oh! The Lady Cups STAGGER the heights of their holes? I never noticed that before. Is that something new?

They've been making them like that for at least nine months or so, as when I purchased one last spring it had that feature.

No, it's not new at all. As far as I'm aware, that's how LadyCups have always been.

Great pic! Just, uhh... very big. I appreciate that you're showing it at a moderate size, but memory-wise, it's still actually very large (2,5 MB) which makes it slow.
Just a heads up!

Thanks for the photo! I'm getting a lotos cup from Santa this year and now I can see it's going to be just the right size :D
