Hello :D

So.. this pretty cuppa is made of 100% medical grade TPE, apparently, and seems to be available in 4 colours = pink, blue, green and purple (or brown?)
They also have a project for learners from school in the country, providing them cups, if possible..

Looks like one-size. No mention of dimensions or capacity. Femmecup/Mooncup size and shape? That stem looks very uncomfortable.

One-size
I wrote to the company, and got a very cool answer from them.
Indeed^^, here are their words about size :

"To answer your question about size, yes, at this stage, based on vast amounts and research conducted with a large group of participants, we have established that the size that is currently available has been adequate for women ranging from 12 years or age to the age of 48. (This included women who were still virgins and those who have given birth vaginally several times"

Re: One-size
In automotive and motorcycling circles, there is a saying about "universal fit" parts and accessories:
"They fit no vehicle in the universe."

;oP

I'm intrigued. But yeah, unless the stem is SUPER flexible, I don't see that working well.

I was looking at the FAQ section and noticed under the question about using this cup after childbirth the cup was referred to as a "lunette"... Red flag

Thanks for sharing.
I love what they do for the girls there, though, yeah, they should have written their own FAQs.

Also, agree that the tab may be uncomfortable....

I'm lucky enough to own a MyownCup :o)!
A small regret I have is that a pouch is missing, but I like the packaging, nevertheless.

First, its dimensions :

Diameter 46,5 mm
Length 48 mm
Length of the stem 18 mm

There are two holes that are really simple/and quick to rince out. (Contrary to the photos on the official website, they are sitted up, on the side of the 'slice' of the stem.)
I dislike stems, so I eventually trimmed it off. But the first time I wore the cup, on a dry run, the stem felt super discreet. Certainly one of the most discreet ever, actually.

And precisely, the cup pretty much acts discreet, sensations-wise. During the first red days, insertions and removals were easy and particularly comfy. The suction wasn't strong at all, then. At times, it might get just slightly slippery.
Wearing MyownCup proves to be extra comfortable.

Unfortunately, a truly light colouration appeared on the inside of the cup, after a few days.

I can say I have been happy with this rather short cup.
But I may not especially recommend it to people with a heavy flow.
