On the Fleurcup site, they used to have all kinds of colors: black,pink,orange,blue,green,etc. In all sizes! Now, they have fewer colors, and most colors are in size small. Why are they doing this?

I guess they weren't selling enough to make it worth producing all those different batches.

As far as I can see they're offering two of their three colours in large, which is notable but not that dramatic. Just a guess, but since the smaller ones are supposed to be for younger people the appeal of colours may be stronger in that size.

This is good to know, I actually wasn't aware they stopped making certain colors in large sizes. But I can see why they might do it if its just not selling, the company does have to survive. Still a shame though...

two. I don't consider clear a color. Nor would I consider clear at all. It'll stain. I love the pink one. about a month ago, the blue one was available too. But now it's only in small. I don't see why make everything in small, though.

Yeah, I wasn't counting clear as coloured. Red and green are available in both sizes, blue in small only.

If you just love the colours that's fine, but don't rule out clear because you think it'll stain. Firstly, blue would show stains just as much as clear. Secondly, I've used clear cups only for 10 years and only had staining with one, which I damaged by repeated, prolonged soaking in over-concentrated sterilising solution.

Do you not see the sense in my explanation for why they've cut down their range? It's only a guess of course, if you want to know what's going on you could email them.

Alternatively, they may be dramatically reducing their colour range or giving up on it all together, and what's available now is what hasn't sold out yet. Again, ask them. Maybe they're planning to make some more blue and pink cups in future, in which case I'm sure they'd let you know.

ahh. I guess I didn't read your first comment thoroughly enough the first time. Good point. I just ordered a green one, just in case the company closes down. Color isn't as important as functionality anyways. I just get caught up about the colors sometimes.

I hope they will not be closing. Maybe I should order another small for the future.

When I ordered my large green, blue and red were also available. A few days later large purple showed up and eventually disappeared again. I think the other colors just sell out faster and they're waiting for more to come in.

Did you prefer the purple over the green? And do you like the large fleurcup?

yeah i think the large just sells faster. the thing is that it's unique with its length/capacity ratio. meluna tried to come close but they don't seem to realize that it's not only about the capacity but also the way it can work for low cervix folks. there are tons of comments from people who've had good experiences with it, often with some special needs (low cervix, extremely heavy flow etc)... i guess many newbies think: if it works for others it should work for me, especially as my flow isn't even THAT heavy (etc). while the small doesn't differ significantly from many other small sizes and faces a much fiercer competition.

i know not all customers visit this comm:) but those that don't probably decide on the brand first, and then again they might hear the large is "better" or that anyone with a heavy flow should get it (not a bad rec in this very case)

I think they're trying to clear out their stock, before they start making new ones. No idea what colors they will make them though, but in any case I haven't heard anything about stopping to make colored cups altogether... it's just for now, while their stock lasts. Do send them an e-mail though, that'd be interesting to know...

They could have just sold out of some colours as Fleurcup seem to be having sales quite regularly.

They were selling 2 blue cups (any combination of sizes) for EUR19.99 about 3 weeks ago. There was someone on mc_sales who wanted to swap one of their blue cups not too long ago.
teacupcake89 on October 20th, 2012 10:46 am (UTC)
yeah they've had 2 cups for £15.00 in red, then blue and now clear over the past few weeks so perhaps they've just sold out!
juliiie87juliiie87 on October 27th, 2012 04:44 pm (UTC)
They've just announced they're selling the pink and purple again, in both sizes !!!!

My green fleurcup just came today. Don't have period to try yet. The green color is pretty, but it reminds me of this one ancient cup on mum.org : http://www.mum.org/daincup.htm

And it kinda grosses me out and makes me feel like it's all ancient and stuff. I don't know. I know the cup looks nothing like that but still :( It makes it impossible for me to love and have fun with the green cup.

I'm so picky and annoying. sorry.

If i like the cup and it works for my heavy days and stuff, i'll probably buy one in purple or pink.
The fleurcup feels really cool tho! It really does have "peach" skin.

As promised, I'll keep you posted on how the fleurcup functions, but probably not on this thread. On a new one, so stay posted!

By the way, does anyone have fleurcups in pink or purple they've bought recently? Melissa has some great pics of them, but hers are of the old version. Also, it would be nice to see them in different lighting.

comedylover01 on November 8th, 2012 11:43 pm (UTC)
So if you have them, please post a few pics of them. :) I'll love you forever :)
