Luv ur body vs fleur

Received my new luv ur body and thought I'd share my initial thoughts.

Been using a large fleur which is a fantastic cup with good capacity as I have heavy periods. Not quite my goldilocks but pretty close.

I ordered the large size as I have a low cervix (between the first and second knuckle) and it is shorter than the medium.

I think a wider cup might suit me as water does get in when in the bath and I also leak when I exercise so I hope the extra width will help with that.

It feels similar in softness to the fleur but is bigger so probably not for first time users or those still getting to grips with smaller cups.

Here's some pictures next to my large fleur.

Update: started using it today. Pleased I can accommodate it and no leakage so far. Main thing is my cramps have disappeared as soon as I changed to this cup (I had my fleur in earlier). So far so good!

Where did the seal go?!

Has anyone else ever had their cup stop sealing, seemingly from out of nowhere? I had a tampon in this evening because that was what I had with me when my period started earlier. When I went to switch to my DivaCup (size 1) before bed, I could not get it to seal. I'd insert, give it a gentle tug to check the seal, and it would start sliding out.

I've never had this problem before and I use my cup every month. Any ideas what could have caused the change?

Potentially useful information: I have quite strong pelvic floor muscles thanks to yoga, and I've never given birth. I haven't been sexually active with a partner for months. I've also been using a cup almost exclusively for 4-5 years now, so I'm pretty confident in terms of how to get it to sit well in my body.

Thank you so much for your thoughts and help!
