I have used a Mooncup UK Size B for about ten years now. It needs replaced and I would like to try another type of cup. I have tried the Divacup and it was too long for me. With that in mind, I've been looking at the Sckoon and the Lunette (both in the smaller size). I'm open to considering others as well, as long as they ship to Canada.

Help?

Compare your Mooncup to other brands using any of the several size charts found at the Community FAQ or the one at http://sizecharts.livejournal.com/ You what you know, like and don't about the size and shape of yours to pick the next cup. Yes, the jump in size from your Mooncup to the Diva was a big one.

OR you can flip your Diva inside out to shorten it. It's perfectly OK to wear it that way if it works for you.

I've got both the Lunette and the Sckoon, and like both of them. The Sckoon is a little better for me most days because it's softer and the firmness of the Lunette can aggravate cramps for me. But, on the down side, the small Sckoon is really small. I haven't had any problems with it moving back too far. I've always been able to grab it. But, the small Sckoon's capacity just isn't enough for my heaviest day (I haven't actually measured, but I think it's a bit less than the 23ml the manufacturer claims).

Basically, ditto on consulting the size charts. Everyone is slightly different with their anatomy and preferences. My advice is to remember to factor in size, shape, squishiness, and capacity when making your decision--if you pick based on just one chart you might be trading in one problem for a different problem.

I have a pretty light flow so I think the Sckoon might work well for me if that's the only issue you had with it.
