I'm thinking about trying a Gaiacup, but am a bit perplexed by the dimensions. Their website states a 1 mm difference in diameter and length, but an 11 ml difference in capacity, between the small and large.

44 X 55, 21 ml
45 X 56, 30 ml

Can any users out there let me know if this is correct, or a typo? One Italian reseller says there is a 1 ml difference in capacity (30 and 31 ml), which seems more logical. Thanks!

it could be that the airholes are higher up/lower down on one size?

When I ordered them I actually sent the small ones back as they were larger than the large! The information on the website and leaflet was incorrect but I thought they had sorted it out.
I have both sizes here and measured the capacity. The capacity of the small was 35.5ml and the large 34.5ml.
They are both 45mm diameter
I have a photo of the 2 side by side but don't know how to add it here

Oh thank you! I noticed you only had the large on your website. They sound like very similar sizes, then. Are there any other differences, like firmness?

Hey Teresa, did you measure the capacities up to the brim or up to the holes? ;-)

Re: capacities^
The capacities that I mentioned in the video are to the rim.
Capacity to the holes - 31ml
capacity to the rim - 35.5ml
Capacity to the holes - 30ml
capacity to the rim - 34.5ml

I filmed a quick video for you, you can see there is very little difference between the 2 sizes http://youtu.be/WWNIrtCVhz0

Also, the softness is the same for the small and large

Wow that was unexpected! Thanks so much, will take a look :)

It was easier for me to just show you rather than try and explain, I hope that helps x
