I know there have been so many posts like this, but I couldn't really find any relevant to my situation. Sorry!

I am in my early 20's. I have had three babies in the last 5 years. I am breastfeeding my newest baby (three months) and plan to continue over the next year and a half-ish. I have yet to start my period, but I am researching and would like to buy one for when it does start up again. My cervix is pretty low right now, at least in comparison to where it was during pregnancy. When I did have a period it wasn't ridiculously heavy but not all that light either. Using tampons I had supers the first day or two then gradually decreased.

I am not all that concerned about price since it is a one time purchase (for quite a while at least). Colors are fun and pretty, but I am more worried about comfort and functionality.

So, what are the best choices for me?

Use the size charts to compare the dimensions of the over 30 brands of cups that are available nowadays. http://sizecharts.livejournal.com/ or more at the Community FAQ.

Start by comparing the large Fleurcup to others. It has a reputation for being a good "Mommy" sized and shaped cup. Clear, pink, red and violet.

I'll second the large Fleurcup for a heavy flow. I've experimented with several brands and sizes before I found it to be my favorite. I was using ultra tampons (often difficult to find) and going thru those in less than 2 hours. The lg Fleurcup now gives me 3-4 hours on my worst two days. I chose red, because previous failed cups were clear, violet and pink, lol.

Thank you, ladies. I had been leaning toward a fleurcuup from what I had read and that just confirms it :)
