Hi there,

I have a small Yuuki I bought at the time when just one version of the cups was offered, and I have no idea if this small size is as firm as the actual regular one or if it's squishy as the actual soft model.
I'd say it is more firm than soft, but..

The soft small Yuuki sounds interesting ; that's why I wondered if someone who owned both the regular and soft versions of this cup may tell me if they differ a lot from each other -- from the aspect and 'colour' of the silicone to their stiffness.
Also, may the -soft- small cup's squishiness be compared to.. let's say the medium U-shape -classic- Meluna's one, for instance, (or to any other small cup)?
In advance, thanks :-)

Have you seen Teresa's video on the old vs. new Yuuki? The old one is clearer, softer, with pronounced grip rings on the stem. The new one is more opaque and firmer with a smoother stem. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2btwH2M3jm0 Hope this helps!

Oh, thanks a lot! I had seen it, indeed, a smart useful video.
But I think Teresa is holding the large ones, and the ones which are appealing to me sound to be the small, especially the soft model. ;o)
Plus, I do have both the 'newer'-firmer and the previous-softer ones = in the large size! haha ;)
Cheers x

Thank you :-) That video was filmed before the new softer Yuuki was released. I don't sell them yet so can't help, sorry.

:D.. I wonder if the new softer cup isn't just = the very first model that was made (thus = the 'older' less opaque cup you are handling in the video.)
I mean, for the large model, anyway-in any case (?)

That's a good point, it could be the same cup

I briefly had a large soft Yuuki, it was 'springier' and not as soft as the large soft MeLuna.

Thank you :o) !
Did it look very slightly 'yellow', that is less opaque- white than the newer Teresa holds in her hands, in the video above (if you have time for it/time to watch the vid!)

The Yuuki I bought was through menstrualcup.co and it was not opaque. Here is a picture of the large soft Yuuki I had (next to a large Sckoon cup): http://trejoy.livejournal.com/pics/catalog/369/2621
It is in package because compared to the cups I already had it was both larger and firmer than I wanted so I got better resale value not opening it.

Thank you very much, trejoy!
What a lovely cup collection ;-) hehe

The pink Si-Bell really has a nice shade.
What is the colour of the large Meluna we see in your album? ; would it be green, no, I don't think so?

Agreed, it's lovely!
Pretty sure that's a cyan Meluna. ;)

Juliiie87 is correct, the large MeLuna is cyan. Only a 2 yr old, heavily used cyan. Started out a brighter shade!

My collection decreased to the picture with the femmecup and the cuplee in it as I figured out which ones worked and fit best. The 'pink' Si-Bell was one of my favorite colors though.

small soft yuuki
I have received the samples of the soft yuuki, they look exactly the same as the normal ones, the normal ones are very stiff so the soft one are may be an equivalent to soft meluna or a ladycup. I havent tried it yet though.
I do sell them on my shop, they come now with a little tupperware to use in the microvawe to clean your cup.

Re: small soft yuuki
Thank you so much for your insight ;D ! That makes things really neater now hehe. Indeed, my large newer (normal) Yuuki is very stiff, that's for sure, at least it stays nicely Inside and all..
I hope you'll have much fun when you try the soft cups. ;-))

What might be interesting would be to compare the new soft cups with the first models of the Yuuki (the ones that were a bit yellow.)
Maybe the new soft is even more squishy!
Cheers :o)
