hello all,

today i was inspecting my old style mooncup uk size A and it seems the holes are beginning to split =(

so my question today is how does the newer style mooncuk uk differ from the old? i purchased mine in 2006.

Also i have a lunette large size, which is not quite agreeing with me today, its still pretty stiff, im use to my squishy mooncup, so i can feel it poking me even though I've removed the stem completely.

Is the squishiness of the mooncup uk comparable to any other brand of cup?

thanks in advance

I don't know how the new and old Mooncups compare to each other but you might also want to consider the Femmecup, which is VERY similar to the Mooncups in size and shape. The Femmecup has also recently been revised with a clearer silicone and a solid tab stem among other changes.

Yes, while the Lunette is a stiffer cup, I think you might feel the difference in the body size more than its stiffness. While the top rims aren't all that different, the body widths are. I also have a Mooncup and a Lunette (both large) and sometimes the Lunette feels like I've got a bowling ball in my vag. That's usually on my heavy days when I need its capacity so I just grin and bear it. I attribute it more to being extra blech and sensitive on those days -- because the Lunette doesn't feel so big on my lighter days (when I could use my lower-capacity Mooncup.) You're probably feeling something similar.

ah yes, i conquer with the bowling ball in the vag sentiment! also it puts a lot of pressure on my urethra ive found when i need to pee i have to push so to speak. I also got it for the capacity as well

Have you seen the squishiness scale? It's by a blogger that's a member here. I think this scale might contain the old mooncup though, because we've stopped being able to order mooncups in the US.

I have a small lunette, which I know is actually made of a softer silicone than the large, and I don't feel it at all while inside. I also have a new femmecup, and it's very squishy. :) From what I know, the new mooncup is made of a less yellowy silicone, and it's a bit softer. Here's a good post with lots of pictures of the old and new cups:

You might also try looking through the UK mooncup tag:

Hope that helps! :)

i found the squishiness scale last night (aussie time), and chose a large yuuki. What a shame the uk mooncup cant be shipped to the US, its quite an awesome cup even though its nothing special to look at =)

I wish we could order uk mooncups here to! Silly companies. It sounds like the yukki is a good fit for you. Good luck :)

Yeah, I had the old Mooncup UK for that one.. I'd love to get my hands on a newer one. :)

The small Lunette is a good idea, that's what I use, because its nice and short (I have a low cervix). Its not too soft, but not too firm, so t works for me.

Femmecup is a good option too, the new one is sooooooo soft, I love it! Very comfy to wear, I wouldn't even need to trim the stem.

Your description of the new Femmecup makes me want to invest in one. I visited their website last day, and they have a good deal, buy one cup and get the second free. So one can share with a friend of family member. Cool!

Wow, that's a pretty good sale, I wish they all did that :)

hi melissa! yes i found your squishiness scale and decided to get a large yuuki. I bought the lunette large for the capacity but its pretty hard and pops quite violently lol, if it was softer it would be the perfect cup IMO. Hoping the yuuki will be the right one for me, not too fussed about length/width, its the squishiness. Never heard of the femmecup, might have to do a little research
melissa569melissa569 on March 14th, 2011 03:34 am (UTC)
Hope it goes well for you, its softer than a lot of cups and its got really good capacity :)

If length is not a issue for you then the large Yuuki should work out really well. It is really soft and squishy, and that is why I like it so much, but I have to use my small Yuuki when my cervix is really low.

yes i ended up picking the large yuuki, hope it agrees with my va-jayjay!

I like the look of the new Femmecup, but why do they make the holes down so low....It would have more capacity if they would put the holes up higher, and closer to the rim like other cups.

my lovely new style femmecup is just as 'squishy' as my mooncup was and its easier to clean (without all the writing inside) and the stem is far more comfy. Hope that helps :)
