Hi, all! I haven't been on this comm in a while because I haven't had the opportunity to use a cup, but I'd like your input on something. Has anyone used the Rainbowcup before or are they familiar with it? They're listed on Amazon with a handful of good reviews, but I've never heard the name around before and haven't seen a tag for it here. It looks like they're silicone with a two-size system (size 1 for those under-25/haven't given birth and 2 for those over 25 or who have) and some colors, nothing super novel.

As a sort of second question -- my last cup was a DivaCup in the smaller size; does anybody have a suggestion for a cup that size that's significantly softer? Colors a plus. I remember a spreadsheet contrasting different softnesses/sizes from a while ago but can't find it!

It's going to be easier to give you suggestions once we know what about the Diva worked well for you, and what didn't. You told us that you'd like a softer cup, but what about shape/size?

There's a few reviews for the Rainbow cup on this comm', usually when the tags don't help, google can. The thing about it, is they don't even have a website, so I'm a little hesitant to trust their words that it's really made of silicone, and not some harmful plastic ladden with bpa and phtalates... but maybe I'm just overly cautious. It's also pretty cheap, which is both a very good and a bad thing, in the same perspective.

This would be what you're looking for : http://menstrualcupinfo.wordpress.com/cup-stiffness-comparison-chart/ the Diva is one of the longest cups, so you'll want to stick with longer cups if it worked well for you. I can recommend the Cuplee, which is a similar shape, not too much shorter with a good stem, decent capacity, is very soft and comes in several colors. Don't be phased by whether a cup is called "large" or "small" and look at the actual numbers : http://sizecharts.livejournal.com/

FYI: The Rainbow Cup is not listed on the size charts yet because it seems to be one of the many Chinese knock-offs that come and go.

They seem to resemble the Lunettes in size and shape and design.

I bought one and it was so soft that I sold it before I used it. It was softer then my meluna soft and the sckoon cup that I also sold.
