I haven't seen this posted here before, so in case anyone else wants to know, I emailed Lunette to ask about the possibility of getting the Selene as well as the regular (clear) Lunette in the US. (Why, yes, blue *is* my favorite color. Man, if I'd known cups came in other colors before I bought the Diva...) Anyway, this was the response I got:

Right now we only have FDA clearance to sell the clear cup in the US, but we are in the process of filing to sell the Selene as well. I estimate the time frame to be only a few months. When new things happen, we post it on our FaceBook page, Twitter and our website. You might want to keep your eye out since we will most definitely make an announcement when we can sell the Selene.

That sounds pretty promising, wouldn't you say?

yea! can't wait to try the large I am waiting to receive, i hope it is ok but worried it may be too long still... if I end up deciding to get a small I'll wait for the Selene to be available to the US! what is it about cups that makes you want to have a variety of them?

I don't know what it is either, but they certainly do multiply.

I wouldn't know what size to get, myself; I'm currently using a small Diva (and therefore not so worried about length), but they make it sound like the small Lunette is really really teeny and most adult women are better off with the large. Which sounds... large. I hope it works for you!

I decided to use my cups at different times depending on flow, time out and about, bladder comfort, etc. I even have two MCUKs since I found the one I lost. Plus I keep one at school and one in my purse. I am sure I have room from one more. You should see my pad collection ;)

I guess multiple colors must need to be approved separately. Sigh.

Probably the formulation of the silicone is a bit different when they include color. Annoying, but I suppose it makes sense. :(

Hey, at least they're trying to get it approved in the US. In Australia, it must be too expensive, because we just get the clear one. :P

That's interesting as this is what their website says:

"Lunette Selene is made of the same FDA approved silicone as our other cups and the colour ingredient is FDA approved and safe to use. It does not contain heavy metals."

but yet there is no order button.
