Hello everyone,

I have been using the Instead Softcup since August 2010 and I have almost no complaints - I've never had more than slight leakage and my only real problem is that there has been some unpleasant pressure on my bladder from time to time.

I've been considering purchasing a reusable cup for sometime, and I was wondering which cup fits most like the Instead. I understand that every cup will be different and I've looked at some of the charts that have been posted in the FAQ, but I still have some questions. It seems like the diameter of the Instead is larger than the diameter of almost every other cup that's been posted about. The Instead diameter is listed at 70mm, and this chart (http://www.klabru.nl/size charts/) has widths that range from 40 - 47mm. That seems like quite a jump in diameter, but I'm wondering if perhaps a smaller diameter will reduce the unpleasant bladder pressure I've felt before.

Basically, I'm wondering which cup (if any) is most like the Instead.

Thank you.
