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?

Which folds have you tried? My Fleurcup never fails to open with the labia fold.

I always use 7 fold with fleurcup. I used to use punchdown fold like i did with lunette, but punchdown is harder to open. I heard 7 fold is one of the easiest folds to open.

Well, since these folds don't work for you, I'd try some others. That's my suggestion.

Personally I find that the labia fold works great with the large Fleurcup. I've never tried the seven fold.

I second the labia fold, facing down, or the half diamond, also facing down. The punchdown would never work for me. The good thing about these folds, and about the trinagle to some extent, is that you can help them open by poking and prodding them. That's sort of what you have to do with most soft cups, they don't tend to magically slap your bits open, but that doesn't take more than a few seconds once you got your method down. I like my Cuplee very much too, but it IS one of the softest cups, regadless half diamond works great with it.
