Hi everyone!!
I just wanted to say I love the help and support that this community has provided me in my journey as a cup user. I have a small Lunette that I finally managed to use. I've gotten better at insertion and removal, and have liked not having to worry about pads and tampons since they both made me uncomfortable. However, these past two cycles I realized that my cup is probably too short and too small (capacity wise) for me. Currently, I am looking for a longer cup with more capacity, that is also a little softer than my lunette. Any suggestions?

Compare the dimensions and capacity of your small Lunette to the other cups at http://sizecharts.livejournal.com/ or any of the other size charts at the Community FAQ.

a large Si-bell or large Fleurcup could be a good option (it's what I upgraded to from my small lunette) :)

There are a buch you could consider, it depends how much longer and how much more capacity you need. You could look at Yuuki (soft version) and Cuplee for instance. Also consider shape, V vs. U or even more bell-shaped like the Fleurcup (you can compare green Fleurcup to pink Cuplee and dingy Naturcup on my icon).

I second the Cuplee rec. :-) It is all of the things you requested -- softer, longer, higher capacity, and (at least for me) more comfortable. The wide hoop shape of the small Lunette seems more noticeable than the Cuplee, although the latter is wider by about 3mm at the rim.

cup choice
I'd try the SckoonCup large. I, too, was a Lunette small fan. The SckoonCup has a very sizable capacity and is nice and soft (which I find prevents leaking much more than my stiffer large Lunette). It's got a longer stem, which I find helpful with my very high cervix.

other cups to try
Oh, I completely forgot about the FemmyCycle! They hold a ton, and have grab loops on the bottom instead of a stem. They are a super soft, very differently shaped cup. They come in a two-pack, as well, so you've got a spare for those heavy days when you might not have time to clean your cup. I've never tried it, but all the reviews so far that I have seen have been excellent.
