My collection has evolved a little over the past six months.

This picture is from late spring:
Femmecup, Lg Sckoon, Sm Sckoon, Lg Iris, Sm Si-Bell, Lg Meluna, Sm Yuuki
Recent latest 1

This one is most recently:
Sm Yuuki, Sm Si-Bell, Femmecup, Lg MCUK, Lg Sckoon, Ruby, Lg Iris
Recent Latest

The yuuki, femmecup and small sckoon have found new homes. The femmecup was my favorite cup that I didn't use but it was only good for mucus, and the small si-bell is a better fit for that purpose.

Great collection you have there! :D

Did you also get rid of the lg meluna?
I have a medium classic meluna, small fleurcup, and now a size 1 naturcup thanks to LJ!

May I ask why you gave away the small sckoon? I think sckoons have the cutest cup design lol. That alone almost makes me want to try one at some point ;)

I'm interested in what you think between the: meluna, si bell, and the sckoon (either size.)

I actually sold most of what I no longer own on mc_sales. The small sckoon was too narrow for me. I thought it might have been better than the small si-bell (for heavy secretion, non-period use) since it is sightly shorter.

The large meluna was my only cup for two years (when money was tight and I couldn't afford to buy any others!) It is soft, way softer than it was when I got it, the ball stem came off, and I figure no one else would want it with that history! So it just sits in the back of the drawer now.

Yeah, so the large meluna was a trusty cup, just got softer over two years of exclusive use and boiling (I no longer boil cups regularly!) The small si-bell is awesome as my mucus cup, but it isn't wide enough for period use (the large si-bell was a little too long and wide for comfort). The large sckoon is one of my goldilocks cups. It is extremely comfortable (I'm sensitive internally), has a super flexible stem and has never leaked on me.

Awe, the stem came off on the meluna? :( I have a ring stem so I hope that doesn't happen to me! ;)
The meluna was my first too as I was really excited to try one, but I also didn't want to spend 35+ dollars on something I wasn't sure I'd like. Now that I know I love cups, and kind of anticipate my periods just so I can use them, I'll keep an eye out for deals on the more expensive ones I want to try. yk? lol

Both the S fleurcup and M meluna have slightly leaked on my heavy days, so I hope the naturcup is better for me :)

Your reply was informative, I appreciate it! I think it's interesting how certain cup shapes can feel more or less comfortable than others. strange isn't it? :p

The Meluna is the older soft version and I used it hard, besides boiling it monthly. I haven't heard of other Meluna stems coming off so you're probably good.

Yeah, internal dimensions, cervix height and bladder sensitivity have a lot to do with cup comfort!

Glad to be of assistance.

My Meluna soft stem is cracking around the grip bumps after a year of use (it's one of the cups I use more often, but since I have quite a few cups, it doesn't get used constantly). I wonder if it's the material, since I haven't had any issues with stems of my silicone cups.
