I purchased a Luv Ur. Body cup several months back. I got the cup due to I was attracted to the fact that it was designed with those in mind who have uterine fibroid's. I got the large size as that was recommended not to mention I thought the medium would be to long. The large size Luv Ur Body is a large cup. I love the capacity but find that because of it's large size I am unable to wear it all the time. When I was able to wear it, it was comfortable for the whole cycle and never leaked! That was always a plus, no back up needed with the Luv Ur Body.
But Now I wish I had left it on the internet store shelf! Here is the TMI part, if I have any fecal matter in the intestine that is not ready to come down; this cup is so large and bulky that it is just no room on the inside and the cup will not go all the way in, it just pushes back out. I would have to strain to have a bowel movement if it is not ready which is not a option. If the bowels are not ready they are not ready. So the dilemma is trouble wearing it during those moments. So the past three months I have reached for my two faithful and favorite Goldilocks cups my MiaCup or the MCUK! When I did my last review on the Luv Ur Body on youtube I bragged about how lovely the cup was and I had found my new trusty favorite. Not anymore it is just to large and bulky. So this is just another cup to look at with the other collection of cups in my not so favorite stash.

Ooo I've been hoping you'd update about this cup! After finding my large yuuki soft just a bit too large I've really been thinking about the MiaCup again lately (you coached me through all the great things about it a while back).

My diva cup was almost my goldilocks cup, other than the fact that it puts just a little too much pressure on my bladder. I'm wary of spending too much more on cups (I already have my diva, 2 meluna's and 2 yuuki's) and have been tossing up between the MiaCup and the LuvYrBody (albeit the smaller of the 2).

Can I ask if the Mia opens as easily as the diva (sorry I'm not sure if you even have the diva but just in case you do).

Thanks for the update :)

I don't have the Diva cup but my daughter has that one and between the two, we both think that the MiaCup is a smiget softer. I would say the Divacup may open a little easier, I only say that because my daughter uses the punch down with that cup. I use the "c" fold or the "seven" fold with the Miacup. I tired the punch down on the MiaCup and to me it didn't work as well as the "C" fold or the "seven" fold. I never have a issue getting it to open The comfort of the MiaCup is what I love as it doesn't put pressure on my insides it just seems to mold to my body. My MCUK is similar but that rim is more pronounced and sometime it is not as comfy, not to mention it's lower capacity. My main go to cup is the MiaCup. I say go for the Miacup over the Luv Ur.Body if you are going for comfort. The MiaCup still offers great capacity, I hope that helps!

Too bad it didn't work for you. :( Was this the medium or large? If I remember, the med is wider and shorter, the large longer? I'm happy with what I've got, but always keeping an eye out for more capacity... Thanks!

My Luv Ur Body was a large which is wider and shorter than the Medium. Yea I am always eyeing more capacity too but I made a promises after this last purchase with the LUB I am done, It totally wasn't worth it after I saw that it doesn't work well for me. The MiaCup offers 30Mls anyway I don't need more than that. I just like the idea that with the LUB I only had to empty one to two times a day over two to three. Still not bad and beats disposables any day!

Thanks. I feel the same about my search for goldilocks. I bought a lot of the large capacity cups looking for the 12 hour holy grail. Now, I find I'd rather change more often anyway and end up choosing by comfort unless I know I'll have a really hard time changing (hiking or otherwise outdoors all day). But it's nice to have the long day option-fleurcup is mine.

And, yeah, cups totally beat disposables!

I thought about a fleurcup and almost got one but I am gong to stick with my rule and not buy anymore. I already had the one cup junkie relapse when i got the LUB, LOL

Cup junkies, Unite! I'm trying to stay on the wagon after my last acquisition a few months ago, a RubyCup.

LOL that is too funny! I love it!

I'm definitely after the comfort factor (and the ease of opening). I only really need a small cup by day 2 but I wrecked my small yuuki when I chopped the stem off and discovered it disappears (eek!) or turns sideways (double eek!).

Thanks for the advice, I think I'll definitely try the Mia over the LuvYrBody (seeing as the smaller one which I'd be going for holds the same amount anyway). I appreciate the advice!
curlydevacurlydeva on June 29th, 2014 04:30 pm (UTC)
Glad to be of help. I am sure you will love the Mia I thought I would have to cut the steam off but that is the only cup that I am able to leave it on because it is so flexible and soft it doesn't bother me.

It's never nice when a cup doesn't work out. :( I'm currently experiencing this with the Yuuki Large (size 2) classic. I received it for a review, and I thought it would be okay since insertion was super easy, but removal.. UGH! It's painful, difficult and takes a long time. I didn't ask them for a specific cup, so they just sent me the large, classic, which is not fitting me at all.

I'm actually also receiving a LuvUr Body cup this week, and I hope it won't cause me trouble :s At least it's softer than the Yuuki classic, right?

And I see you've been considering the Fleurcup. I have both the small and large ones and they are really great. So if you decide to buy more cups you should definitely give it a go ;) But I will add that the grips on them are very prominent, and I do get slight chafing from them, unfortunately.
curlydevacurlydeva on June 30th, 2014 06:07 am (UTC)
Yes for sure softer than the Yuuki classic! I hope the Luv Ur Body works out for you when you get it next week!

Yes the grips on the flurecup is one of the main reasons why I didn't get the cup two years ago. I wanted it but I knew I would have to file it down like some people on here have done with theirs and that did not appeal to me at all.

I am happy with my MiaCup no need to get another one I am doing very good not giving into my cup junkism. LOL

I have now used the LUB for the first time, and it worked great for me. I only used it once (over night), but I had no leaks, and despite the size (a medium) it wasn't too long for me and I couldn't feel it at all. Very excited about it. I hope my next experiences with it will be just as good!

Cup junkism is a baaaad disease. I kind of want to give in and buy myself a Lunette, but at the same time, I'm sure I should just use the cups that I already have instead. That would be much more healthy for my purse.
curlydevacurlydeva on August 26th, 2014 09:58 pm (UTC)
Awesome!!! I am glad that the LUB worked out. I am sure you will have a good experience the next time.

I so feel you OMG I was looking at the cups on sale on feminine wear this past weekend and it was so hard not to give in. I just had the itch to buy one. But i was good and did not do it. YAY! i am giving myself a pat on the back.
