so I have given my Small Meluna Sports a dry run - I have to say it was easy to insert!
I used a C fold and it seemed to pop open easily. The punchdown method also worked well.
 have a high cervix so had to bear down a lot to get it out - it has a ball stem which is easy to grab. I find my cups get squished flat inside me - steel trap pelvic muscles? lol but the Sports was slightly flattened but not as much as my regular melunas. I kind of wish I had got a larger size because having an easy to insert cup on heavier days would be great. 
Anyhooo - that's my little review - please feel free to ask any questions you have - there is bound to be stuff I have forgotten to write here

You've got a nice collection of them. Love the colors.

Thank you for the review! Now I'm really tempted to buy one ♥

If the new Sport was a 10-stiff in a "squishiness/stiffness scale" from 1 to 10, where would the Classic cup fall?

(I'm trying to get a sense of how much stiffer it is :-)

P.S. Love the photos SO MUCH!

It's 25% firmer according to Meluna... so if the classic meluna is a 6 on 10, then the sport would be... 7.5 ?

Ah, OK, thanks!

(I hadn't checked where the Classic falls on the stiffness scale (6 isn't all that high), so I'd been wondering if the Meluna Sport pushes it up to 11, Spinal Tap-style ;-)

Haha... god no. I don't think the world needs a cup firmer than a Keeper ! (personnal opinion, you might disagree.)

I think this picture illustrate quite well the difference of stiffness between the MeLuna Soft, Classic and Sport

Thanks for reviewing. I wish I could figure out a good Meluna size for me.

If you have one cup already, there is a link on here (someone may have it handy) that compares all of the cups with actual pictures (length, etc). That may help.

I have many cups already. Unfortunately, none of the size combinations work well for me.

Cool review and nice pictures -- I've never seen so many cups of different colours! But there are a lot of them, so maybe some could go behind a cut?

Would you like some tips on fixing your formatting using the html version of the post editor? I got on the internet before forums and things had rich text editors, and I'm glad I did because it was a really non-intimidating way to get a grasp of html.

Mod note
Could you please put these photos behind an LJ cut? There are instructions here: http://www.livejournal.com/support/faqbrowse.bml?faqid=75/

Thanks!

Wow, you've got so many cups. I wish I had one of those purple ones, so pretty !
