I thought I'd share my experiences with cups to give those of you who have hit roadblocks a bit of hope!

Small mooncup UK - far too thick with too stiff a rim, was uncomfortable and made me want to pee all the time

Lunette - same problem with stiffness

Ladycup small - comfortable but too difficult to remove

Divacup - closest I've ever got to a good cup, but uber suction made it uncomfortable for me

Sort of gave up after that and stuck with cloth pads for a while.

Had my 2nd baby 4 months ago, a VBAC. Got my period back very quickly despite BF. Used one tampon, hated it. So decided to have one last ditch attempt at trying a cup.

Looked at a lot of pictures, comparison charts etc. Eventually decided to go for the NaturalMama cup from www.femininewear.co.uk. I chose it because of its capacity, shape, softness and tab like stem. I struck gold, it's very comfortable and for the first time I have a cup that I forget is in!

which size lunette? was it when there was only one (which is now called large)?
yeah nowadays there are plenty of soft cups of various length and shape. glad you found the right one for you.

It was the large yes.

How would you compare the Natural Mamma's firmness with the Diva's? And do you find it pops open easily? Does one fold work better than other? The length and capacity appeal to me too!

NaturalMama is slightly firmer than the Diva, so it's still comfortable but pops open easier than the diva did for me.

Huzzah! I just got my Natural Mamma cup in the mail yesterday from femininewear.co.uk, I can't wait to try it!
