I'd love it if there was a way to read a whole paragraph while pausing the slideshow!! Or am I just technologically challenged ?

My first thoughts are, it looks low capacity, not every one has room for that stem, and I woner how easy it actually to drain. Clots, anyone ?

Click on more on any page and it will load that information on a new page.

Well thanks I did, but that takes me to the "more" page, which isn't very interesting at all. :/

OK, I finally figured a way to read it after all. Now my brain hurts.

"and the water required for several times of flushing a common menstrual cup will be saved without environmental pollution".... uh, ok. flushing cups ? wtf?

On a positive note, they advertise an awful lot of labels and certifications :

"Victoria's Love menstrual companion has passed two strictest tests: U.S. FDA 21CFR 177.266 food-level materials detection and European CE ISO10993 detection for extracorporal cytotoxicity, sensitization, and intravaginal stimulation."

...again, I had to chuckle a little at the last bit.

...also, lots of odd similarities in the customer's reviews, including two identical ones. Anyone heard of testers ? It sounds too good to be true.

Hmmm...I'm also wondering about the stem. I had to completely cut off the entire stem on my diva cup. I found it irritating.

That looks reaaaally cool! But I know I could never use it with that monster stem. :(
teacupcake89 on October 19th, 2013 09:57 am (UTC)
what happens when you have a clot that won't go through the stem tube?!! you won't know if you do until you come to empty it!!

not everyone's flow is that fluid/liquid once it's been inside for a few hours! standing there waiting for some of it to slowly gloop/trickle out... (and not being able to tell if it's properly emptied unless you remove it!)...might as well just take it out and empty/wipe really.

Combined with the fact that not everyone will be able to leave all the stem on...

That stem had better be bendy.

That's... remarkable. When I was wondering about the idea of putting a valve in the stem of a cup, I was thinking of using it to release the seal, not to empty the cup.
Hmm... what does one do if it gets clogged? Remove and flush (as in, wash with water running through) I assume...
Jennifer Monoteasy2begreen on October 19th, 2013 06:28 pm (UTC)
Whoa, interesting. My first thought was that it would be kinda cool to have a cup that works like the separation funnels we use in lab. Having to empty a cup mid-day in a public bathroom can get a little messy. But how does the valve work? The funnels have a stopcock that can be turned, but it looks like you just...pull on these. I've been okay with the thicker, solid stem of my Rainbow Cup, so I think this stem would probably be fine, but it definitely wouldn't work for everyone.

dimensions^
There are two sizes : size 1 is the large one, and size 2 is the small.
They come in a pack of two cups, apparently with the sterilization device included.

Both cups are 80mm long, size 1 is 45mm in diameter, size 2 is 40mm in diameter. ;o)
rochanken on October 20th, 2013 12:48 am (UTC)
huh
I'm looking for an additional cup and was fascinated to see this come on the market. That said, I am no longer in awe. 80 mm in length? Goodness.

I was curious about the capacity though. I couldn't find it on the website and I didn't see it here. I tried to email them but the site gave me an error message in Chinese.

I await the first youtube review with anticipation!

video^
Here is a video on one of their facebook pages = https://www.facebook.com/photo.php?v=1397776110457716&set=vb.209796292524641&type=2&theater

Fairly surprising..

Re: video^
That video. I can't get over it... it raises so many questions. Mostly, is it really so hard to get a translator, and where did they get the blonde robot?

Holy eff. That video.

Found it !
Hi !

I live in China and I have found it on the chinese taobao for 10 yuan = less than 2 euros..... with the sanitizer too apparently ! For this price I HAVE to get it.

I'll let you know once I have it, sounds... interesting !

Re: Found it !
Hello, I was wondering if you used the victoria´s love cup already... how would you rate the stiffness from 1 to 10 or compared to other cups??... So curious because I would like to buy one :)...

Re: Found it !
Hello enelyi^^
I bought the large cup.. So I can't tell you anything about the small one, if that's the one you are attracted to ;).

The cup itself is really refined, and crystal clear. Contrary to the drawings for it, there are no holes at all below the rim, but it hasn't been bothering : the cup is fine as it seems to simply open well during insertion and is easy to remove too.

It is one of the softest cups I know (and I have plenty hee). It's the rim part itself that feels the softest!


I could test the valve system - unfortunately, it's kind of hard to push the small ball down the pipe - I did have to try and puuuush it ;/. Yet the blood went away by the little holes from the pipe, as I firmly pressed it. But honestly, it might be sort of long or a bit 'complicated' to do so.
Also, a tip of the stem kept out of my opening. At first, it was rather okay, but then has been irritating.

Thus, all in all, I'd be very interested in trying a Victoria's Love mate that would be just the cup alone! without any stem on it, eh... :D

Re: Found it !
Hello mavoune :-) I would add three questions..
Does your cup have holes under the rim or not? Which size have you?
Do you find the long stem bearable (doesn't it protude outside your vagina a little)?

Re: Found it !
Hello
Well, in the end, the price was only for mass sales, not for individual sales, so the order was cancelled... I'm sorry. I really wanted to try it... :(

Seems to me
I am a hard core cup lover, and I hate to be kinda creeped out by a cup knowing their greatness. But, The though of sitting there and trickling my period out is . . . just a weirder version that sitting there with no cup. I mean, I can only deal with keeping the diva large and Fleurcup large stem on, I chop all the others off. Dude maybe I'm in a mood but that's making me feel ill. lol.
Gluppit the prawling strangles, thereelettaria on September 3rd, 2014 02:57 pm (UTC)
That seems totally pointless to me. How is it less hassle than simply removing, emptying and reinserting the cup? Is it meant to be easier to do when you don't have a sink to hand, or something? Anyway, 12 hours? Hah. Having to empty my cup every 12 hours is my idea of a heavy day. Which makes me unusual, I know, I know.
..::bella vita::..por_que_no on September 13th, 2014 02:07 pm (UTC)
Same here. A couple people have suggested this cup to me because my cervix is super high (80 mm would probably just barely reach my entrance) but since I can get kind of clotty on the first few days, and one clot would completely seal off that valve, it seems kind of pointless to me, nor do I usually have to empty it more than every 8-12 hours.
Quitteriequitterie on September 13th, 2014 04:56 pm (UTC)
Hi! I'm not sure anymore.. Oh do you have a Lilycup?^ It's one of the longest cups. And I don't know the large model, but I find the small very easy to remove, too :o).
