I got my Si-Bell cup in the mail yesterday and was really excited to use it, I managed to use it all night last night with no problem. I took it out this morning and left it on a tissue to dry, and when I went back and looked at it the rim is really rough-looking. I guess I didn't really look at the rim too well when I scoped it out before I used it because I know it's not something I did - the only surface I ever set it on was the tissue (I washed it, it's definitely not dust). It looks a bit like it was scraped on something and there are really tiny strings of silicone coming off of it. Is this normal? I tried looking up pictures of si-bell cups and the rims look smooth, with a seam running down the middle which mine doesn't have because it's apparently been scraped off. If it's not normal, is it a problem? I don't have anything I can take a good picture with, but it looks a lot like the photo in this post except what's on the bottom of the rim isn't dust, it's little strings of silicone.

Thanks in advance!

I know exactly what you're talking about. I got my Si-Bell cups (small and large) in mail a few weeks ago and large has regular molded rim (with the seam), while small appears to have sort of "sanded" rim. I assumed that small one is either a new version or came out with very pronounced seam in production and was "smoothed" down or they do that to small size only. It looked like there were a few tiny strings of silicon on mine too, but I went over them with a wet nail file and it seems to have taken care of that.

I didn't contact my seller, because it actually feels really soft and nice to the touch and I'm contemplating filing the rim on the large cup as well, after proper trial runs.

My small Si-bells that I bought last year do not have this problem. It worries me that the quality may have gone down!
Any chance you could post a few pictures?
