I think I'm in love. I just got a few more cups in the mail today, and thought I'd post pictures and a quick description of the Eco-cups (size 1 and 2), Mamicup and Ruby cup (the others have been written about).
The Eco-cups, even the size 2, are almost as long over-all as the Si-bell/Natu (that's a Natu in the pics, but it really looks the same), but the cups themselves are so short that low cervix people can wear them easily.

Eco-cup:
-The large (E2) about one point, the small (E1) about two points firmer than the Fleurcup
-5 slanted holes - hole diameter very small
- very smooth lines and no visible side seam

CAPACITY TO HOLES LENGTH CUP + STEM DIAMETER
SIZE 1 17 ml 45 mm 22 mm 42.5 mm
SIZE 2 20 ml 45 mm 22 mm 46 mm

Rubycup:
-About one pt firmer than small Fleucup
-4 small holes that sit very low
-very smooth - I can see the sidseam when held against light

M Mamicup:
-4 small holes
-shape and size very close to S Fleurcup
-inside feels different from peachskin outside
-outside has many grippy textures that may be an issue if you are sensitive
-a tiny bit softer than S Fleurcup

Let me know if you have any questions.


E1/2:Eco-cup, F:S Fleurcup, M: M Mami, R:Ruby, Sc/Sk:S Sckoon, Si/Na: S Si-bell/Natu

tags? the site wont let me add any
I tried to add tags, but it didn't work, is there some rules about amount or something?

Re: tags? the site wont let me add any
Not sure, maybe I have to add them, because I submitted the topic? Which ones shall I add?

Re: tags? the site wont let me add any
I meant to a post I made :). I've seen your pic a lot
So I thought I would ask you because I'm pretty new to this site.

Re: tags? the site wont let me add any
Oooh, I see. Click on "Edit tags", and then on something that may look like a drop-down titled "user's tags" (I "think", because I am on my iPad, so see things differently). You should then see a whole list of tags, and select the ones that fit (you can't create your own). Hope this helps.

ETA: I just added two to your post.

Do you have the stats on the Eco-cup (length and diameter)? Also where do you buy them. I haven't heard of them. Thanks.

I had not heard of them before either. I heard they are the same as the Lyberia cup, which is also Made in italy but only sold through pharmacies there. I added the dimensions, and I bought them through an Italian web shop:

Thanks for the info. I'd be curious to hear your assessment of these. You'll have to give us a full review. They look like they could be a good option for me.

Eco-cup
How would you compare the stiffness of the Ecocup 2 to a Large Lunette or Large Sckoon?

The size looks similar to the Medium meluna mini. How do they compare for usage (if you have the mini)...wondering if capacity is very different/comfort/ease of use,ease of popping open, etc.

I'm going to try one more cycle with my Lunette and Sckoon, but am thinking at some point to try Ecocup or Med. meluna mini and am trying to decide which one may be a better option for me. Thanks!

Re: Eco-cup
I don't have a large Sckoon, but it is about the same stiffness as the small Sckoon. However, the rim on the Sckoon is very thick, as opposed to the Ecocup, which is thinner. It is also thinner than the Meluna rim, which I think may add to capacity overall.
The silicone on the Ecocup is much peachier/silkier than the Sckoon and soft Meluna, which feel sticky in comparison. I have not yet worn my Mini M nor my Eco2, but the Eco seems to open just a teeeenie tiny bit better than the other two: the silicone is a bit springier.
I've worn the Eco 1 and really like it, but I wish the Eco 1 was the same exact shape as the eco 2 - it's unfortunately a bit more narrow/long than the meluna Mini S.

Rim comparison.

Outside: same diameter.

5 slanted holes on eco, and higher up, than the 2 Meluna holes that are lower.

Eco softer, and thinner rim.

Same amount of liquid. I am holding them a bit slanted, sorry.

I can't post a new topic until next week (community rules), but I think the below photos should help - though the angles distort the sizes a tiny bit.

Looks like if you like the Meluna Mini M, the Eco-cup Size 2 (the larger one) is the exact same shape once you remove the stem, but it has more capacity to the holes, and more capacity to the rim (maybe because of the thicker Meluna rim.)
The Ruby-cup, which has even a larger capacity, has a more bell shaped bottom, and once you remove the stem, it is actually shorter than the Meluna Mini M. Can I just say, those two brands are the most well made cups I have ever held in my hands, despite my everlasting love for my Si-bell, Fleurcup, Natu, etc.
If anyone wants me to out one cup next to any of the other ones that I have on the first pics, let me know.</p>

Mini M Meluna, Rubycup


Eco-cup size 2, Mini M Meluna


L2R: eco 2, eco 1, Mini M Meluna (Mini M Meluna filled to the holes, same amount of liquid in all)


L2R: eco 2, eco 1, Mini M Meluna (Mini M Meluna filled to brim, same amount of liquid in all, the eco 2 liquid reaches to below the ridge thingie)


L2R: eco 2, Ruby, Mini M Meluna (Mini M Meluna filled to brim, same amount of liquid in all)


L2R: eco 2, Ruby, red Si-bell S, same amount of liquid as above.

L2R: Mini M Meluna, eco 2, eco 1 (stem removed)

Left: Mini M Meluna on eco2, same exactsize and diameter.
Right: Mini S Meluna on eco 1, eco 1 is a tad wider.

Love all the pics and descriptions! Excellent.

Thanks so much luceafara!
Those pics are great and really answer some questions. I'm liking that Ecocup more and more....
