Can't make poll button work though. Can somebody else make a poll? Or we can just type answers. I've not tried every cup but judging from the cup I own, none of the cups I could buy would be long enough to easily reach it every time I'd need to. Am I alone? :(
a) all cups are a bit/lot too short
b) I am goldilocks
c) all cups are a bit/lot too long
d) there are cups which are a good length for me but there are other problems with said cups. I wish more cups had a variety of lengths.

Ps. Not part of the poll but just wondering, has anybody noticed different cups riding up less/more or is it always the same based upon your cervix? Just because I break the cup seal at the rim so even with a longer cup with an easily reachable stem I'd have to pull it down carefully to do that, pre-seal breaking. Would be much easier if it'd just sit lower.

Out of these, my answer would be "d". I have three cups, but none are my goldilocks cup, each for various different reasons.

What long cups have you tried?

I have a long cervix and own a Diva Cup size 2, a Lare MeLuna soft and a Medium MeLuna soft.

My Diva would likely be my Golidlocks cup if it didn't press on my bladder. It's weird, it presses on my bladder during my period but not when I'm not on it. Things must be more sensitive at that time. It cold pop open a teeny bit more easily but I don't really have too many problems with it. It rides up a little (I've taken off the stem) but doesn't go too far away. I can still get a hold of it.

My Large MeLuna soft generally leaks and is mission impossible to get open. I'm not a big fan of the grip rings at the bottom and have cut off the stem. It rides a little higher than my Diva cup.

My medium MeLuna soft is not for me at all. I can pop it open okay but it rides so high that I get bad leakage around the edges. I guess it's just a bit small (mind you I have only tried it on my heaviest day and it filled up a bit quickly).

I'm currently considering trying one or 2 more cups but haven't decided which yet (the MiaCup is looking promising though).

Which cup do you currently own? The Diva cup is the longest one I believe.

b, more or less. I have a pretty average cervix height, so most cups work for me. The longest ones I have to trim a bit; the shortest ones I have to reach for, but neither of those is much of a problem.

Long bodied cups seem to sit higher in me. Judging by the relative heights of my small LadyCup (untrimmed) and Natural Mamma, I expected to have to trim the NM stem, but it actually all fits in. My theory is that the pubic bone forces the body of the cup higher, so the longer cups get shoved up a bit higher.

Probably d). More variety of widths, too.
My Goldilocks would be on the soft side, at least 45mm diameter but maximum 50mm long. Cups with pronounced rims/ridges beneath the lip don't work for me. I've used the large MeLuna soft with moderate success for a couple of years but consistent boiling seems to have softened it further, so I'm branching out! I intend to order a Sckoon my next payday and a Fleurcup is in transit. I also bought a Lunette recently, but my cycle was just over so it's only had a dry run.

B - my small Fleurcup :) I only wish it came in cuter colors!
