my Meluna order arrived today! it was so big it came in a box!!

I promise to post heaps of pictures but will have to wait until the weekend to have time to do it properly in the daylight to get the colours right etc..   also - if anyone can direct me to info about posting a picture on Livejournal I would appreciate it - I have not uploaded pics here before :)

I ordered the following cups - 
Small Sport Ball Stem - (electric violet)
Set of Small Soft Ring Stem (yellow) and Medium Ring Stem (green) + yellow silicone washing cup (it's so cute!!)
Small Original Regular Stem - (green)

The freebies are as follows from what I can tell - 
Medium Original Ring Stem (purple)
Small Soft Rig Stem (yellow)
Medium Regular Stem (orange)
Medium Ball Stem (blue glitter)
Large Ring Stem (green)
Large Ball Stem (orange)
X-Large Ring Stem (purple)

the cups I already have had for a few years - 
Small Original Regular Stem (this is the old shiny blue with the very stretchy stem)
Medium Original Regular Stem (light pink)
Large Old Style Ball Stem (purple)

so OMG I am swamped with cups at the moment!! I did ask for samples because I wanted to give my sister one but now I have heaps to give to my friends as they sent pamphlets for the samples too. I am so amazed by how generous the lovely Meluna people are :) :) :)

I haven't tried any in yet - It's 8am here and I have to go to work today but I will have a try over the weekend and let you all know what I think - especially of the Sport! 

The only thing I have really noticed is that the Sport is not as hard as I expected - it is slightly less flexible than the normal ones but it is still easy to fold and handle. The matte finish they put on these cups is a great design feature I think. The Soft cups are VERY squishy - I don't think I'm even going to be able to get one in me but we will see...

Click my name to go to my lj where there are 2 albums of pics :)

Wow, they were quite generous indeed... You must be excited.

I believe everyone here is jealous right now lol. So to make up for this jealousy, you have a moral duty to rehome several of these extras to your friends and family ! Spread the cup love ! ;D

will do - I am finding homes for them as we speak :)
if I end up with extras I will post them on the swaps page for postage costs only as I am in New Zealand xx

Heh, and here some of us were puzzling over whether Meluna had stopped sending out samples. You have to ask for them. Of course :-D

Anyway, congratulations on your good fortune \\\o/// and I'm really looking forward to seeing your new goodies. Especially the new Meluna Sport!!! *tries not to jump up and down with excitement*

P.S. Do you happen to have one of the MINI Melunas, a.k.a. the "old-style" cup? Because the old MINI Meluna classic is (to my mind) considerably stiffer, esp. at the rim, than the new Meluna classic. I'd love to hear how the Sport stacks up against the MINI in terms of firmness!

you are so lucky(and i'm kinda jealous i admit it) and they have been so generous. i think the next time i order i'm going to email and ask because it seems its true that shy bairns get no sweeties. i was going to order soon anyway because i haven't managed to get the seam on the side of my cup to vanish with a nail file and i want another one hopefully before my next period arrives.

oh and i'm a little technologically challenged so i'm no help with posting pictures, but if you could post pictures that would be great.

oh and if it isn't too cheeky to ask, did you email them to ask about samples before or after you ordered? thank you!

I emailed them after I placed my order - the day they confirmed my payment I think. They replied straight away :)

I'm still struggling to find out how to upload the photos I took - it looks like I have to pay to upgrade or something first? >

I am currently uploading to my personal livejournal - hoping this will work if I post the link here when I am done..
sparklemooosparklemooo on July 10th, 2012 05:45 am (UTC)
ok - photos uploaded to my livejournal - if you click my name it should take you to 2 albums - let me know if you can't see them - I can add you to my friends if need be :)

I'd love to know how you like the ones with the ring. I'm thinking that's what I'd want (seems like it'd be easiest to remove if you could just hook a finger through a ring, rather than trying to grasp a little ball or stem), but I was wondering if the ring might eventually weaken and break with wear, and then the thing would be hard to get out.

(Also: YOUR ICON! Adorable. Is that a kiwi chick???)

That's amazing! Lucky you! Why did they give you so many? I am trying to buy a new cup too, I have emailed MeLuna over a week ago, and still have no response to my queries. How did you work out the price, and how did you pay for it? I am in NZ too, but I am freaked out about using paypal, I've never done that before. It's all in Euro on their website, and I can't figure out what it will cost me exactly. How long did it take to get here? I can only afford one, but if I could I would buy a whole range t, to make sure I got the right one, I am terrified when I finally buy a new cup I will have issue with it.

Also, where is the swaps page? I can't find it.
