April 2011 I ordered a medium Meluna blue glitter cup from femininewear. I'm looking to buy another Meluna but need something less squishy. All the comparisons list Meluna classic as fairly firm. My femininewear invoice doesn't list it as a soft or classic. Any idea what I have? On Monday i emailed femininewear to see if the can shed some light, but no response yet.

November 11 is a bank holiday in Europe, so that's why no response yet.

Unless I am mistaken, the blue glitter Meluna is always a Classic firmness.

Sorry I didn't receive an email from you. The blue glitter is a classic. So, you would need a soft and there are 4 colours - pink, cyan, silver glitter and yellow.
I hope that helps

I have a doubt with your question, less squishy means the same than less soft?
if yes, you need a firmer cup,don´t you? , not a softer cup.. I think..
the sport is the firmest cup in Meluna, do you really like this one?.
for me, a firme cup is uncomfortable, it´s strange me when someone choose one.

It is most certainly a classic due to its color.
If that's at all an option (if yours is not a Mini), you migh want to try a different brand (rther than a sport Meluna), because Melunas in general, due to being made out of TPE tend to be less springy and to conform to your body more - both common issues that would make someone want a stiffer cup. The optimized medium Meluna is of very similar dimensions to a host of other cups : small Lunette, small Fleurcup (very springy in the rim despite what the stiffness ratings say), small Yuuki classic, one of the firmest cups, which is a different shape but not too distant size-wise.

Thanks, and darn. I was hoping it was a soft. I was looking for a 45x45cm because I like my Mooncup (US), but it's so long it tends to stick out. The Meluna I currently have tends to collapse after a while.

The new Italian cup, Lybera, has similar dimensions to the Meluna medium mini for its small size. The website even says it is 1 mm wider than it is long - 46X45. If it helps you track it down, it is also called an Ecocup in different distribution points, apparently. I have no information on its squishiness or springiness.

Thanks. Id been looking at the Lybera. I've gona ahead and purchased a Sckoon large using my Amazon credit points, so if it's too long, also, I'll look into the eco!

"The Meluna I currently have tends to collapse after a while" If by this you mean it is an oval or not quite round after wearing it for a while this is normal for a MeLuna mine are all oval now but they all work just as well as they did when I got them.

It may have been a wrong address. I replied to a previous email. After some more looking, I think it may be an "old" medium. It's definitely not 41mm in diameter unless it's stretched. On another note, is the diameter the internal diameter, or is it measured to the outside of the rim?

45x45 is called the mini medium now it is the same as the "old" medium
