Hi people

So I finally got around to write a little review about the LuvUrBody cup. A couple of months ago I bought a large LuvUrBody cup in the hopes that it might give me the extra capacity I wanted. I have a problem with a dangly cervix, so every cup I wear ends up leaking when it is only a little over half full. Very annoying... Enter the large LuvUrBody cup, the highest capacity cup on the market with room for a whooping 34.5ml. I bought the large one because I was afraid the medium one would be to long for me. The medium is actually longer than the large one! It`s just a bit narrower than the large. Here are the measurements from the companies website:

Cup Dimensions:

MEDIUM

LARGE

Diameter

45mm

48mm

Leaf Stem Length

20.3mm

20.3mm

Cup Capacity

31ml

34.5ml

Cup Length

61.7mm

56.7mm


I don`t actually have a super high cervix. It`s medium high I think? I can just reach it with my middle finger. It`s just that no matter what I do all my cups loves to ride really high and basically swallows my dangly cervix.
Maybe that`s why I didn`t really find the cup too long
.The leaf was just about poking out, but it was so soft that it didn`t bother me at all and I just left it there. Btw, I have not have any children, nor am I sexually active. Despite this I have never felt any difficulty using the large cups (beside the first OMG! That thing is huge and there`s now way it`l ever fit up there! - reaction). Just relax and you`d be amazed at what fits up there.

The cup itself is quite pretty with flower patterns all over the cup and measurement lines inside. The measure lines are definitely a pluss. Personally I didn`t like the flower patterns. Yes, they were pretty to look at, but I found myself missing the smoothness of the fleurcup when checking that it had opened fully by inserting a finger and swirling it around the cup.The patterns kinda got in the way if you get what I mean. Getting it to open was a wee bit more difficult than my large fleurcup (it is very large after all!) and it was one time that I had to give up and try again the next day. But that`s just normal starter difficulties with a new cup I think. The cup started to leak when it about a bit over half full to three quarter full. It gave me bit more wear time than my large fleucup. Something I definitely missed when taking it out was grip rings like on the fleurcups. The flower patterns just doesn`t cut it.

All in all it is a good cup with high capacity. It is not my goldilocks cup, for that it is just to big and cumbersome. Maybe I will become more used to it along the way and come to like it better, but I think for now I`ll reserve it for the day of my cycle when I shed the most blood and stick to my fleurcups for the rest of the days.

A while ago I posted some comparison pictures of the large LuvUrBody cup. The link to the post is here: http://menstrual-cups.livejournal.com/3239872.html

Hope this will be of help to someone.

Ps. Sorry for the different text size. I have no idea what happened.

You mentioned the medium is actually longer than the large, but your chart says the large is longer.

Are the numbers mixed up somehow or am I misunderstanding? :)

Sorry, my mistake. For some reason I though that number was cup capacity with a typo and I tried to fix it :P Silly me. That`s what you get for skim reading. I`ll edit the post now and put in the right chart :)
