Info on foreign cups?

Does anyone know what the firmness/stiffness is for the small MiaLuna, LunaCup, or Organicup? Compared to the common cups.

Also the measurements for small LunaCup, or Organicup?
The Organicup site shows 50mm without stem but I wonder if that's the large or small. Organicup is expensive.

EDIT: Also firmness for a small Bella (korean)?

EDIT: Jasmine won't work for me so I removed it from the list above.

Cup Sits at Entrance..

I'm super excited, my period is due in the next couple days and I just received my medium meluna classic with ball stem. I was so excited I had to try it out before my period. It inserted fairly easily (will take some time to get used to it), it sealed perfectly, it felt okay but I did have a few cramps. My problem is more of a concern. The ball stem sits right at the entrance of my vagina it may stick out just a touch. My concern is will this damage my pelvic floor muscles? The stem doesn't really bother me it's hardly noticeable but I'm worried that since its sitting so low it may hurt my muscles with continuous use. Anyone with similar personal experiences? Am I worrying for nothing or should I try a shorter cup? The only one I know of that is shorter would be the meluna mini but that one has a smaller capacity.
Also will the cramping go away with continuous use.

Teething problems or poor fit?

Hi! By background I am 35 and have had 3 children. I am using a Lunette size 2 with the stem fully trimmed. This is my second cycle using it and I just can't seem to get it right. When I have it in it is generally comfortable, although especially on the first day of my cycle it can be painful when it pops open and crampy for a while afterwards. It can also be hard to get it to open fully, when I try and feel around it is sometimes concave in parts. And even when I think it is in right, and I can't feel it, it leaks. Not a lot, but enough to need to wear a pad all the time, which I really don't want to do. I'm wondering if maybe it is a little large / stiff for me? Or maybe I'm just not getting the seal right? Any ideas please?

Calling all Pink Fleurcup owners :)

I'm trying to decide between getting a pink or a red Fleurcup. I like red by default, but the pink is also appealing from the Fleurcup website.

The pink seems to be similar to the color of a Cynthia Lunette in some photos, and in others it seems like a very light pink. Then some of them look flesh-colored.

There seems to be a lot of deviance in how it actually looks in photos, so I don't know how it looks in real life!

So, if you have a pink Fleurcup, I'd love to see it.

Especially if you bought one recently. I don't know if they may have changed their pink over the years.

Edit: Thank you all who posted! I decided to get the red.
