Help me out here folks, i hope some of you have Lunette, and Meluna classic and meluna soft....

I have a Lunette, i was getting really awful painful cramps with it to the point i was almost afraid to  use it.  Really, really sensitive cervix.  I can't even go anywhere during my period, too much pain.

I never had painful cramps before giving birth.  now all my periods are heavy and painful.

The cup solves the heavy part not the painful part.  But there's more relief without the cup than w ith it.  The cup is still better than tampons tho- way too painful for tampons.

So, I decided to try a 'softer' cup.

i ordered a meluna large classic (which supposedly, according to the softness/stiffness ratings) still softer than than Lunette large.  I also ordered an XL Soft meluna.

Meluna messed up and sent medium classic and large classic, wrong styles, so they sent 2 more, large "soft" and xl "soft.".  Correct styles, but darn it they don't feel ANY SOFTER than the ones I got previously.  And package only marks size, it doesn't list the softness so i can't try to confirm.  So now I apparently have: large lunette, medium regular meluna, large regular meluna X2 (diff styles), and XL 'soft"  But the XL is SO STIFF.  And the lunette is softer than ALL of them.

Am I missing something here??? I mean by stiffness, the actual cup, because the meluna rim is thicker and so more stiff, so I'm just comparing the inner cup softness and they are all more stiff and unyielding than the lunette.

A bit unhappy and a LOT confused.... anyone know if this is inconsistent or not?

This, the colors will tell you what it is. Pink, turquoise blue, yellow and silver glittery are the soft variety. All other including clear are the classic. Btw, I don't have a large Lunette, but I find hard to tell which is softer between my Cuplee (rated very soft) and my medium Meluna soft (in turquoise).

I felt a medium meluna classic (the clear one) that I got for a friend, and I was tempted to get myself one, because it didn't feel that stiff, anyway it was definitely softer than a large Meluna classic (purple) that I got as well. The large classic I found too stiff to my liking, but still no pain while wearing it, which amazed me. Afaiu the large Lunette should be stiffet than all of these, and most likely comparable to the large classic.

Colors of the cups I got: red medium with a ball stem, red large with no stem, large orange with a ball stem, xl purple no stem.

but seriously the lunette is softer than all of them. I'm flabbergasted!

I bought TWO and while one is regular one is soft.... so they should be SOFTER (both) than my lunette....

Red and orange indicate classic Melunas unfortunately... Write to Meluna using your previous e-mails as an attachment and send pictures of the cup so they can make two and two together and realise they did not send you soft cups... :/

(Though if it were me, I'd still consider the medium, but it's up to you.)

Here is what you have : http://meluna.eu/gunstiges/meluna-special-feng-shui.html?___store=english&___from_store=deutsch
It clearly says classic. FYI, soft cups are rarely (if ever) included in Meluna's bundle deals. Femininewear sometimes does this kind of deals. But if you've told Meluna you wanted a soft cup, they shouldn't have misled you. Now, if you can't be bothered with them, you could offer a swap on mc-sales...

Meluna doesn't offer them as a bundle but I had written and asked and gotten special permission.

Crap you are RIGHT. The colors they sent are CLASSIC. They sent me the wrong cups TWICE. Wow way to go meluna. :(

Going to write back again. Sigh.

Sadly I do not have my old emails.... I got a nasty email virus the last two weeks and had to wipe my whole computer. And clear my email out completely. :'(

All those Colors are classic stiffness and depending on the shade of purple the Xl could even be sport. I also have a large lunette and have tried all stiffnesses of meluna and can tell you that it is very hard to compare them. The tpe that the melunas are made of are a thicker, less boingy material for lack of a better word.
OmniAliaomnialia on October 4th, 2012 06:23 am (UTC)
is there a clear difference between soft meluna and the large lunette?? I mean I'm buying the meluna because i want something softer than my lunette.
ozonemamaozonemama on October 4th, 2012 12:11 pm (UTC)
A huge difference. At this point I would either check out mc_sales for a soft meluna or get one from femininewear. I know you probably don't want to rebuy but if meluna keeps screwing your order I would definetly take my business elsewhere.

Meluna's sending a new cup in the mail today! And they are kind enough to let me keep the 'mistakes' too. May trade one or two on MC sales and give one to my sister... :)

This, or possibly a large Fleurcup... <3 my Cuplee.

That's odd because my large lunette is definitely much stiffer than my classic medium meluna. I've heard melunas might vary in stiffness between sizes, but there's not a chance you accidentally bought a knock-off lunette, is there?

ETA: They messed up your order 4 times? Yikes, I'd go to a different venue or even a different brand.

no, they messed it up twice. I had ordered 2 cups. They sent the wrong two cups in the first time, and sent one wrong cup the second time. They are mailing me a single cup this time that should finally be what I ordered. :P A SOFT CUP.

Definitely not a knock off lunette because I bought it directly from the manufacter. :) It started very stiff and has gotten softer with use. And its definitely softer than the classic meluna. The large lunette is softer than the classic medium, large, and XL meluna!!

Yay for getting a new cup ! Meluna aren't THAT bad after all, at least they aknowledged their mistake and found a way to make you satisfied, eventually ! It's interesting about the Lunette getting softer over time ! Because you're not the only one to find it too firm, so there's hope...
OmniAliaomnialia on October 6th, 2012 03:55 am (UTC)
Yep. I love the shape and size and capacity of it, just that it gave/gives me HORRIBLE cramps. I have bad cramps anyway but it was worse with the cup in. I do think it was the stiffness and suction. I'm really hopefully that the soft cups will be a looooot better!
