Softcup Sizes

Hi, all. I got another email yesterday from the Instead manufacturers about their cup that I thought some of the general population here might be interested in.

Apparently the company's creating a new, smaller size of Softcups, and they need testers. Email them at, with the subject "I want to be a tester" and provide your mailing address in the body of the email. They'll send five of the old size and five of the new; you try them out and fill out a "brief online survey." As thanks, you get a "two-month supply" of twenty-four Softcups, in whichever size you prefer. There's a note about limited supplies and replying promptly, so if you're interested, I'd check it out. (I will note, I'm not sure whether this is limited to US customers or not. I know the last email I got from them was a US-based survey.)

Anyway, figured someone here at least might want to to try it out!

Cup trade?

I have a meluna cup, size medium, that I would like to trade for a large meluna. My cup has the ball stem and is the older version. Any stem style is okay as long as it has one, I just need a bigger cup! I am in the United States if that makes a difference. If you want to trade please send me a message or leave a comment here. Thanks!

ETA: Thought I should add, the cup has been used, but only twice. I will boil it before I send it out for a trade. Also I do not mind if the cup I trade for is also used.
