I bought a fleurcup (large) in late October 2012. I read some people online said that fleurcup is firmer than is sckoon cup. But fleurcup is sooooo soft, i can't get it to pop open when it's in me! I tried running it in cold water, spinning, pressing with finger to let air in. Is sckoon cup softer or is fleurcup? I need a cup that is soft enough to catch clots but firm enough to open. Also, I need high capacity. I've bought 3 cups already, and i haven't found my goldilocks cup yet. Lunette size 1 is best in terms of shape and squishyness, but it doesn't hold enough and the size 2 is wayyyyy too hard. Any suggestions for me?

I had the same problem with the Lunette 2 stiffness!

Something to keep in mind, cup shape could also be a factor in comfort and ease of opening.

I think the Cuplee is tied with Si-Bell for most flexible. The Cuplee was just a tad too long for me, but it's a great cup for capacity and it opened well.

My Sckoon has been consistent for comfort, capacity (no leaks!) and the right length. In addition to cold water, a trick for opening the Sckoon is to make sure one of the air holes is in the fold. And it's more comfortable for me than the Fleur.

thanks for responding. :D

Which is softer: fleur or sckoon?

The flexibility is close to the same, but because of the construction of the cup (shape of the body and rim, thickness of the walls) I prefer the softness of the Sckoon, particularly the way it sits internally.

I don't have a Sckooncup, but from all accounts the LARGE Sckoon should be the softest, while the SMALL Fleurcup (and probably the small Sckoon) are somewhat firmer/thicker and closer to a SMALL Lunette.
