Hello, all!

I have a large Lunette which I adore for several reasons--it always pops open instantly, it has a large capacity, and I never have any problems  inserting or removing it.  However, it can irritate me sometimes on days 3-5 of my period.  I'd like to get something softer for those days--but I still really value easy insertion and removal (I had a large Ladycup but it was often hard to pop open and it made occasional weird suction noises, which isn't so great when you're in a public bathroom).  For those have the large Sckoon--is it easy to pop open and is it relatively free of weird noises?  Or are there any other softer cups (with soft, non-irritating stems) that people would recommend?

I have a Skooncup and love it. I need a soft cup because stiffer cups irritate my bladder. I found it easy to insert and it popped open quite easily in most folds. I tend to use the 7 fold for insertion. I tried lots of different folds because I find different cups work better with varying folds. The only fold I couldn't get to pop open for love nor money was the push (punch?) down fold.

The Sckoon is one of my goldilocks cups! As long as I have an airhole positioned in the center of the fold, it opens easily enough.

Cuplee is a good, soft cup. My cervix just rides too low for the length. The large Iris cup has the same shape and dimensions as the LadyCup but with the Cuplee's flexbility/softness!

Thanks so much for the info, nakedfaery and trejoy. I went ahead and ordered the Sckoon from amazon--very excited to try it!
