Hi everyone,
I'm looking to get a new cup (my third) and I'm wanting a cheaper one so I'm looking at Meluna. I know I should get a large but I'm not sure whether to get soft or classic. I would choose the ordinary stem style stem. I really love the softness of my Ruby Cup (rated as a 2 here menstrualcupinfo.wordpress.com/cup-stiffness-comparison-chart) and the Meluna soft is about the same, I think, but I've heard lots of things about Meluna Soft being too soft... I don't think I want a classic - I'ts rated a 6 and just sounds too stiff.

I had a Meluna soft S with ball stem (until I burned it last night - fell asleep while it was boiling in water on the stove), and it was super. I could never feel it inside, and so wore it every day for the past three weeks or so, after I got it. I just held it under cold water before inserting, and opening it was not a problem at all.

I will definitely order another one. Highly recommend.

I'd say the Ruby cup is more like a 3, akin to the small Fleurcup stiffness wise, so a soft meluna would be a bit softer. If you've been using the Ruby cup fine, you'll be fine with a soft cup.

Why do you want another cup? what would you like to change about your Ruby cup? stem? capacity? stiffness?

My soft MeLuna definitely got softer over time with monthly boiling. It unfolded more easily in the beginning than it did after two years.

Hi Wildgirlza

Just to let you know, Meluna now has a website in your country! (Much easier to order locally rather than importing)

It is www.meluna.co.za

I would say GO SOFT. Soft cups don't "pop" open, it's just a matter of the user finding the right technique ot help it unfold. Those who say otherwise are disappointed firmer cups users, imho. Or they just have suuuper tight vaginas, if that's even a thing ? Which I don't think it is, but as I don't have experience with other's vaginas I really can't say.
