I'm selling my lunette and divacup on mc_sales in favor of a large fleurcup with more capacity. I ordered it a week ago and I'm one of those types that constantly updates the tracking info on an order. Unfortunately for my sanity, fleurcup.com does not give tracking info on their orders! I live in the southeastern USA. About how long does it take to receive a fleurcup.com order?

EDIT: It seems there was a mess-up somewhere and I was supposed to receive a tracking number. I emailed customer service and they emailed my tracking number about 3 hours later. I'm pretty damn impressed, especially since it's a sunday!

Also, I forgot to get a pouch with the cup and once my diva sells I won't have a pouch. I plan on using a clean, thin cotton sock until I can find a cloth pouch. I've looked on etsy but the cheapest they have there is around 8$+ shipping. Where can I snag one for cheaper? I'm pretty low on cash and would rather spend less than 10$ for a 3x2 inch pouch of fabric.

I'm in Australia and it took me about 10 days to receive mine.

A cotton sock is fine to use but if you really want a pouch could you sew one yourself? Just a piece of scrap material and ribbon would be all you need.

You could always turn the sock itself into a cute pouch. Since the top is finished you could just hand-stitch it down like the top of your pants and thread some ribbon through. It does not have to be fancy, just practical.

I'm terrible at sewing (although my husband can sew decently) so making one from scratch is a bit intimidating, but putting a drawstring ribbon closure on a cute kids sock seems simple! I've seen coin purses made from baby socks for 1$ at gas stations here that are too small for a cup, but they look simple to make and would be perfect for storing a cup. Thanks for the idea!!

You're welcome and if you decide to get a back up cup, you'll have two pouches for the price of one.

It sounds like you're all set with the sock idea :-) but in general... any small cotton or linen (or other breathable-fabric) pouch or bag will do. For example, craft stores sometimes sell small linen drawstring bags to use as sachet bags (e.g. fill them with lavender to scent your underwear drawer). These are usually inexpensive and make perfectly fine bags for menstrual cups.

BTW I can barely sew on a button, so I totally know what you mean ;-)

I've seen some fabric pouches in stores as gift wrapping around Christmas, but here's what's on Etsy... http://www.etsy.com/search?q=pouch&view_type=gallery&ship_to=ZZ&order=price_asc&page=0

I'm in California and my fleurcup took just over 2 weeks. I think I had to pick it up and sign for it, they refused to leave the package at my door - might of been registered mail.

Maybe check dollar stores - I've purchased cloth zipper pouches on the cheap. Or dollar stores with a good craft section might have those small cloth gift bags.

Fwiw I seem to have ordered a day before you and the tracking number is telling me it's outside Spain and "Origin Post is Preparing Shipment." In other words, I suppose it's in the US and USPS is about to take it over.

*edit* Actually, I just noticed the date on this post and we ordered on the same day.

You got a tracking number?

EDIT: I emailed fleurcup customer service and they gave me my tracking number. It says the same as yours. No idea why I didn't get the email though...
