Someone left a comment on my blog, giving me a link to Lunacup from Mexico, just wondering if anyone has seen/tried it?  I guess I better get an info page posted on the blog about this one.  I need to read the website over better though...  Here is the link, it kind of reminds me of the Naturcup with the ball stem and the long body:

Also, as requested I did update the sizing / squishiness charts on the blog:

big thanks for updating the size charts! is the Ruby cup in the capacity chart? and what stiffness would you say the (back again) soft Yukkis are? :)

I will have to ask for samples of the soft yuuki, right now I just have regular. But yes, Ruby Cup is in the charts :)

Thanks, I can see the Ruby cup in the size charts but not in the capacity table in the size charts link http://sizecharts.livejournal.com/ , not sure if that's yours or not though..! :)

Thanks so much for updating the charts !
I personnally think the small Fleur is a tad thicker and firmer than the large one, especially in the rim and how it pops open... idk if you'd take my word for it though...

And about this cup... I had to go over the other south american brands, and I'd say it looks like a mix between Naturcup size I and Misscup (because it's long and narrow too), but it's definitely not the same as MiaLuna, so it's unique. The leafy grip rings look cute. The ball stem definitely looks similar to Naturcup though. Wow, this is trully becoming overwhelming...^^

Thank you for the updated charts!

One question about the main charts - do 'small Meluna' and 'medium Meluna' refer to the MINI Meluna or the newer optimized Meluna? As there's no reference to the large or XL Meluna I've been assuming it's the MINI you're talking about (which is now available only in S and M sizes), but it's not obvious.

I did not include mini meluna, just the small. But the mini's rim is pretty close to the same as small. Capacity is probably about half of a small. I used to have some minis, but I sold them in a fundraiser.

There was never really a MINI large. Back when it was just MINIs the large always had the volume optimized bell shape. When the new Melunas came out there wasn't much to change, aside from the newer ball stem.

You should put the soft yuuki back on the squishiness chart too since the company has started selling them again!

Thanks for the update! But I don't think the Natural Mamma has a 5.7cm diameter. I just measured mine on a ruler and it came out to 4.4cm.

I agree, I measured mine the same - 44mm

Thanks for sharing...just curious, we travel often outside the country, mostly cruises, but not always. Can I find cups to purchase in their home countries, or is it something I'd need to order? This new Mexican cup got me wondering about that, we seem to end up in Cozumel often, and I wouldn't mind making a side trip on the way to the beach. What a souvenir that would be. :)

Some companies you can. I would say check their list of stockists/distributors and see if there are any brick and mortar locations you can visit.

Thanks! I just may do this. :)
