Hello :D

Ooh wooow !!
The Lily now exists in a compactable version - you should have a look at it hehe.
The rim is more 'conventional' than on the original cup, and this one has holes... But its concept and shape are incredible.

It also reminds me of the Meluna foldable silicone cups..

Can be worn up to 10 hours.

Great cheers x

Cool idea, but 11ml isn't much for capacity--nor am I hurting for space in my purse to the point that I'd choose a foldy cup over a regular one (I actually rarely carry around an extra cup unless I will be traveling for an extended time--all my cups are high enough capacity that I empty them in the morning and at night and that's it)...and most of the time I like the regular Lily's length. It would be nice for users with a lower cervix though (as the poster on that site mentions)

Just out of curiosity, do you have a link to the foldable Melunas? I always like seeing new designs!

Meluna
Hi por_que_no :o)
You must have seen Teresa's comment, but in case you wouldn't, here is the Meluna foldable cup.. (And now a cup holder is even included) :http://www.meluna.org/Collapsible-silicone-cup-with-cup-holder

.. And Rubycup also has the same kind of foldable sterilizer cups : http://shop.ruby-cup.com/collections/frontpage/products/ruby-cup-sterilizer

It looks like it would be painful to remove!

The foldable silicone cups are used for sterilising. I filmed a video about them http://youtu.be/A7Y5ItAnKlc

Very nifty, although it seems to solve a problem that I'm not sure anyone actually has. But I really like it when manufacturers are doing their best to think of new features for cups.

That's what I thought. Though it could be nice for people who dress/identify/whatever as guys and don't really want to carry around a man purse--this would fit easily in a pocket.

I don't carry a purse... but personally I've never wanted to carry a cup in my pocket. But sure, someone else may want to.

This cup wouldn't work for me because of the pointy shape, but again, it may very well work for others.

I like how innovative the idea is, anyway.

I once thought my period was probably on its way but was running late and didn't have time to insert it so stuck it in my pocket for the next opportunity. That's the only time I can remember in the last year or so, but I'm sure it's happened before when just having to take it with me from point A to B without a bag.

When I go hiking/exploring in the bush I've tucked my cup in my front pocket. It fits nicely in the curve of my hip and doesn't bother me. While camping, should I need to, I would also pocket it while ducking into he bushes (or out if my period was done).

For what it's worth, I carry everything in my pockets, I don't have a handbag, and I've had no problem sticking a cup in a normal women's jeans pocket when I've needed to. It's clearly visible that I've got *something* in there, just as it is with my phone and keys (because sigh, pockets on women's clothes), but people who wear men's clothes should have even less of an issue, given I've seen the lucky sods fit whole books or bottles or water in their pockets. And of course ultimately if you really need to discreetly take a cup somewhere you can wear it.

I still think this new cup is really cool, would love to see one in person!

I have a funnel with this design and gave up on it because it would collapse during use. Personally I wouldn't trust it...

That's what I thought when I saw it! Like, wouldn't it just fold up as you try to insert it?!
