Got my first MeLuna(s)!!!

Hey Everyone!

I am very pleased to tell you that I finally got my MeLuna cup that I ordered about two weeks ago from their website.

What makes me even happier is that they included an extra MeLuna for free!
The one I ordered is a Large blue cup with no stem. The second is a clear Medium cup, with a ball stem. They came with one soft carrying case as shown on the site.

The free one was listed as having minor defects, but fully functional. I searched it over and found two tiny black specks trapped in the plastic, and that the mouth of the cup is a bit more oval than a typical cup's circular opening.

The large MeLuna is about the same exact size as my Divacup, which in recent events, I parted ways with.
The little holes around the rim of the MeLuna are larger than the ones on the Divacup, and there are two instead of four. The MeLuna has paperclip sized holes where the Diva had holes like a fine, fine needle.

The cup is made of TPE or thermoplastic elastomer instead of silicone, and is said to be completely allergen free. The texture feels a bit "grippier" and sort of tacky, whereas the Diva has a smooth, fine texture to it.

The MeLunas are firmer in texture than the Diva, but I still think they are pretty squishy and awesome. I'm excited to use them for my next period! I'll be sure to write about my experience with them

MeLuna is a wonderful company and are very helpful with everything you need.

Today is like Christmas.
